The importance of Carrier Oils

Vegetable oils (also known as carrier oils or fixed oils) play a far more significant role in massage than many people realise, but unfortunately, some therapists still feel they are of little importance. In fact, to believe this would be a mistake, as they offer a wealth of health-giving benefits. They contain vitamins, essential fatty acids, various antioxidants and phytosterols. Many of them soften and improve the condition of the skin. Some of them are also highly effective in treating irritated, sensitive conditions, such as eczema and psoriasis, as well as helping to reduce wrinkles and scar tissue.

There are a wide range of vegetable oils to choose from, as well as infused or macerated oils such as Calendula or Carrot. The variety of vegetable oils available to a newcomer can seem a little bewildering at first, since there is very little written on this important subject but choosing which ones are for you is not really complicated at all!

Selecting vegetable oils for treatment is simple -in other words, once you know the properties you choose the ones with the properties that match your client`s particular requirements. All you need to know are some basic facts about the therapeutic properties, composition and viscosity of vegetable oils, and then choosing becomes so much easier.
