Carrier Oils vs. Essential Oils

Free Mini Course on the differences between the lipid carrier oils and the aromatic essential oils, and how to use them together.


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 soap maker 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.
