Coconut Oil

BOTANICAL NAME Cocos nucifera

Coconut Oil is solid at room temperature. It is used to create a barrier on the skin. It is also the preferred oil for high quality cold process soap making.

AROMATIC :Coconut has a very slight scent, but is generally considered odourless

EXTRACTION METHOD: Cold Pressed

COLOUR:White to off white

CONSISTENCY: Solid at room temperatures. Gentle heating is required.

ABSORPTION:Coconut creates an oily, protective barrier on the skin.

SHELF LIFE: Coconut Oil is slow to go rancid; users can expect a shelf life of 6 Months to 1 Year with proper storage conditions (cool, out of direct sunlight). Refrigeration after opening is recommended.

USES:Coconut Oil is a very popular oil and is suitable for manufacturers, aromatherapists and massage therapists. Direct application to the face with Coconut should be avoided because of possible allergic reactions.

CAUTIONS:None documented



Carrier oils also referred to as base oils or vegetable oils are used to dilute essential oils, CO2s and absolutes before applying them to the skin in say, a massage. They “carry” the essential oil onto the skin and dilute the essential oil safely. Different carrier oils offer different properties and the choice of carrier oil can depend on the therapeutic benefit being sought. Some are particularly moisturising, some have a high vitamin content.

Carrier oils as part of our aromatherapy supplies range are generally cold-pressed vegetable oils derived from the fatty portions of the plant. Unlike essential oils that evaporate and have a concentrated aroma, carrier oils do not evaporate or impart their aroma as strongly as essential oils. They can, however, go rancid. Our carrier oils are natural and unadulterated. Exceptions include buying carrier oils that have natural vitamin E added. Vitamin E acts as a natural preservative. I do not stock any carrier oils that have vitamin E added as a preservative.

Infused or Macerated oils are where particular plant material has been infused for a period of time in a carrier oil in order for the carrier to extract the plants volatile chemical compounds. Macerating merely speeds the process up by agitating the plant material in the oil. The carrier oil usually employed is Sunflower oil and the majority of infused or macerated oils are in a ratio of 40/60 extracted chemical compounds to the carrier oil. Typical infused oils would be Arnica or Calendula for instance where the plant yields no real oil in itself but imparts its attributes to the carrying oil.
