Carrier oils are derived from the fatty portions of plants. The seeds, nuts or kernels are pressed to obtain the oils. For use in aromatherapy, you should look for oils that are cold pressed. These oils are usually sold in health food or specialized stores. The oils used for cooking are heat processed or pasteurized and should not be used for aromatherapy. Carrier oils can spoil and go rancid over time, so it is suggested to buy them in smaller batches or keep them in the refrigerator. Note that when stored in the refrigerator carrier oils may turn cloudy. They need to be returned to room temperature before use.
