So what are the lipid Oils?


You can find these oils under the name carrier oil, fixed oil, beauty oil, botanical oil, base oil and seed oil. 

All these terms describe the fatty acid rich lipid oils, pressed from seeds, nuts and kernels harvested around the globe.

For decades these exceptional oils have had so many names that we are faced with confusion. 

We can change that. Together.

Meet Susan


I'm Susan M Parker, author of Power of the Seed: Your Guide to Oils for Health and Beauty. I have spent over two decades researching, studying and working with the lipid (carrier) oils first as an herbalist and soapmaker and then as a formulator as I began building my own skincare line. As I was creating products and developing new recipes I realized that these oils are at the foundation of so much of what we do as makers and formulators. These oils quite literally carry most of the blends, recipes and combinations we create.
