Massage is the ultimate experience that essential oils have to offer, and you do not have to be a professional Aromatherapist to use them in this way. Massage oils can also be used as a moisturizer for your skin, either by adding a spoon (5ml) of a blend to your bath or by applying the oil after bathing. Macadamia Nut oil is a more expensive carrier oil than Grapeseed oil but it soaks into the skin relatively quickly and does not leave any residue. If you would like a high quality carrier oil that is not as expensive, Sweet Almond oil is a good alternative.
Avocado carrier oil gets absorbed into drier, finer skin quickly. Its richer, heavier structure makes it a very good moisturizer and is an excellent base under make-up.
Where the skin is scarred (like from chicken pox, acne, cuts or more severe wounds) try and use Calendula oil as a carrier. In many cases, it has significantly reduced the appearance of scar tissue. Also its softening and encouraging for the skin's normal growth.
