So recently I have gotten into the Essential Oil phase. I started doing a lot of research about it, and slowly building up my stash. After doing the research, I learned that I should dilute most oils with a carrier oil. Such as Fractionated Coconut Oil. I’ve read that this can tone down super strong scents, and also can make oils safe for your skin.
Fractionated coconut oil is coconut oil that has been processed to create a shelf-stable oil. The fraction of the oil that is used is very high in saturated fats and this product can be used in many ways.
The big advantage to fractionated coconut oil over regular coconut oil is that it is very shelf-stable. It will not become rancid, unlike unrefined oils, making it easier to work with. It is also capable of handling very high heat, which can be a distinct bonus, and it can be easier to work with than solid coconut oil. Thanks to the fact that it has a long shelf life, it does not require special storage and handling procedures, beyond keeping it in a cool dry place.
Fractionated coconut oil has no scent at all. It comes with a pump, so that you can easily disperse it. I feel it doesn’t leave a residue on your skin.
I usually use one to two pumps of this oil, with 2-3 drops of whatever essential oil I am working with. That is when I am mixing for the diffuser. If I am mixing for my skin, I use two pumps of coconut oil with 1-2 drops of essential oil. I place in a separate dropper bottle, or a roller bottle, and mix well. Then I can place it on my skin, usually without any kind of reaction.
This oil can be used for a variety of things. From diluting essential oils, to moisturizing your skin. Especially in delicate areas, such as the face. However, this oil CAN still cause breakouts if you are sensitive. So please test on a small patch of skin first before applying it anywhere liberally. You for sure don’t want a mega break out!
I received this product for free for the purpose of an honest review. The opinions you read above are my own and are not influenced in any way.
