Let's talk about Carrier Oils!

If you are new to oils, you probably have noticed the term "carrier oil" used frequently and might be wondering what in the world we are talking about! So let's take a look at what they are, why we use them and what our favorites carrier oils are.

A carrier oil is a naturally derived vegetable oil (usually made from seeds, nuts or kernels from the plant) with a neutral smell that can be used to dilute essential oils. Carrier oils help to make sure that essential oils applied topically are comfortable to the skin. Dilution with a carrier oil does not dilute the theraputic quality of the essential oil. In fact, it can help you avoid waste during frequent applications. 

So how do you know what ratio to dilute your essential oil? Just check your label! Young Living EOs have a specific dilution ratio for each oil listed on the bottle. You can learn a lot from the back of those little bottles - not every oil can be used in all 3 ways (topically, aromaticly & internally) so always be sure to check! 


When choosing a carrier oil, our recommendation is to find oils that are organic, cold-pressed and unrefined. Here is a list of some of our favorites:

Grapeseed Oil

  • Light consistency (non-greasy feel on the skin after application)
  • High in linoleic acid which can help to support your skin
  • Use as a carrier with essential oils in roller bottles for quick application
  • Great for massages
  • Great addition to whipped body butters

Sweet Almond Oil*

  • Medium consistency (may leave a slight oily residue on the skin)
  • Contains vitamin E
  • Use as a carrier with essential oils in roller bottles for quick application
  • Great addition to whipped body butters

*Caution: May cause a reaction to those with nut allergies.

V-6 Enhanced Vegetable Oil Complex*

This is a blend created by Young Living that combines fractionated coconut oil, grapeseed oil, sweet almond oil, wheat germ oil, sunflower oil, and olive oil
  • An excellent choice for all essential oils and applications
  • Use as a carrier with essential oils in a roller bottle for quick application  
  • Great for massages
  • Contains vitamin E
  • Long shelf life

*Caution: May cause a reaction to those with nut allergies.

Olive Oil

  • Thicker consistency (skin may feel oily after applying)
  • Popular, easy-to-find oil that most people keep have on hand for cooking
  • Good source of oleic acid (omega fatty acid)
  • Use as a carrier with essential oils in a roller bottle for quick application
  • Shorter shelf life

Fractionated Coconut Oil

  • Unlike coconut oil, fractionated coconut oil is liquid at room temperature
  • Light consistency (non-greasy feel on the skin after application)
  • High in essential fatty acids
  • Use as a carrier with essential oils in a roller bottle for quick application
  • Long shelf life

Coconut Oil

  • Solid at room temperature
  • Has a light coconut smell to it
  • Perfect for making essential oil creams
  • Thick consistency (may leave a slight oily feel to the skin after application)
  • Long shelf life

Cocoa Butter

  • Solid and hard to work with at room temperature
  • Best used when melted and blended with other carrier oils
  • Sweet, chocolate smell (smells so good you might want to take a bite!)
  • Combing cocoa butter with shea butter or coconut oil and either peppermint or orange essential oil makes the BEST smelling body butter! Yum!  

Shea Butter

  • Solid at room temperature
  • Thick consistency (may leave a slight oily feel on the skin after application)
  • Nutty smell 
  • Great for body butters and creams - a 50/50 mixture of shea and coconut oil makes an incredibly fluffy body butter

When in doubt, ask your enroller! Whether it's where we like to purchase our supplies, what carrier oils we prefer for specific applications or even our favorite recipes, we are here to help. And believe me, when you get us talking about oils, it's hard to get us to stop! 

Patchouli Essential Oil


One of the many amazing oils that you can get for free from Young Living in February (with qualifying purchase) is Patchouli. Patchouli (Pogostemon cablin) is a bush-like herb of the mint family. It has an earthy scent with woodsy undertones and is an important ingredient in DiGize™, Abundance™, Peace & Calming®, Live with Passion™, Magnify Your Purpose™, and Allerzyme™.

Patchouli essential oil is great for supporting the skin. It may improve the appearance of dry, dull skin and is an ideal complement when added to your favorite skin care products. Looking to unwind? Diffuse this oil for a calming, relaxing, peaceful fragrance. Patchouli may also help to inspire feelings of romance. Next time you are ready to set the mood, try a combination of Ylang-Ylang, Patchouli and Orange in your diffuser!


Ylang Ylang

Ylang Ylang essential oil is sourced from beautiful yellow blooms from the Cananga tree. Ylang-Ylang means “flower of flowers".

A Ylang Ylang flower in bloom

Ylang Ylang essential oil is distilled at Young Living's Guayaquil Ecuador farm. With nearly 2,000 acres of farmland, the Ecuador farm’s fertile ground and year-round growing season support an abundance of palo santo trees, lemongrass, ruta graveolens, and many more local plants and herbs. This farm is also proving to be the perfect place to harvest oils that are in short supply throughout the world, such as helichrysum. 

Guayaquil, Ecuador Farmlands

Guayaquil, Ecuador Farmlands

The following is an excerpt from a blog post by Dr. Gary Young, founder of Young Living Essential Oils: 

"You must know the best time of day to pick the leaves or flowers or harvest the entire plant from the field. In other words, you must know the best time of the day to harvest, when the Brix measurement is the highest, which measures the glucose levels in the plant, to determine the best time to extract for the greatest quantity of essential oil.

For example, the best time to pick Ylang Ylang flowers, when the Brix measurement is the highest, is from midnight to 4 in the morning. But it is hard to get people to pick during that time. So we pick from daylight until 10 a.m., because we have found that the oil volume is maintained until about 10 o’clock, and then we will start losing some of the oil as it leaves the flowers and returns to the branches.

That is the reason that when we smell the flowers in the afternoon, the fragrance won’t be as intense, because the oil has gone back into the tree during the heat of the day to protect the tree from dehydration. Then at night as the temperature cools, the oil comes back up into the flower. It is very, very interesting to see how the tree preserves itself." 

Check out the following video to get a little glimpse of Young Living's Ecuador farm:

Ylang Ylang is found in many Young Living skin and hair care products, and essential oil blends including Awaken™, Believe™, Clarity™, Dragon Time™, Peace & Calming® and Forgiveness™. It has a rich, floral and romantic scent. It can be helpful for calming and bringing about a sense of relaxation. It may also help with releasing feelings of anger and assist with getting rid of negative feelings. Ylang Ylang also has a long history in skin and hair care products—especially in Asia, where it is used to promote luxurious hair. Historically, it has been said that the marriage bed of newly wed couples would be covered with Ylang Ylang flowers to help promote feelings of romance.

"And they came into the house and saw the Child with Mary His mother; and they fell down and worshiped Him; and opening their treasures they presented to Him gifts of gold and frankincense and myrrh." Mathew 2:11

Did you know that frankincense is mentioned in the Bible over 50 times? It was was historically used as a holy anointing oil during religious ceremonies and can be traced back more than 5000 years. The gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh given to Baby Jesus by the Wise Men, were gifts traditionally given to Kings. 

Frankincense comes from the Boswellia tree found in Oman. The tree naturally produces sap (or resin) as a way of healing itself when it is scored. The Boswellia Sacra tree (where Sacred Frankincense essential oil comes from) is especially unusual in the fact that it has the ability to grow in very unforgiving environments. It has even been known to grow out of solid rock. Young Living's distillery in Oman practices careful harvestation and rotation to protect these amazing trees from over use. 

This picture shows how the resin collects on the bark of the Boswellia tree on the Young Living Farm in Oman. Photo credit:

Young Living offers two different types of Frankincense essential oil: Frankincense (Boswellia carteri) and Sacred Frankincense (Boswellia sacra). 


Sacred Frankincense  (Boswellia sacra) essential oil supports and maintains the appearance of healthy-looking skin, and has a grounding, uplifting, and inspiring aroma. Apply this oil topically to enhance meditation. Sacred Frankincense includes the naturally occurring constituents alpha-pinene, limonene, and boswellic acid, and it is an important ingredient in the Freedom Sleep™ and Freedom Release™ Collections, Common Sense™, RutaVaLa™, and Progessence™ Plus essential oils, and ART® Sheerlumé Brightening Cream.

For more information on Sacred Frankincense, check out this blog post from Young Living:


Frankincense (Boswellia carterii) includes the naturally occurring constituent boswellic acid, and has a woodsy, warm, balsamic aroma. Diffuse Frankincense during meditation for grounding and purpose. Applying this oil topically may help smooth the appearance of healthy-looking skin, and is excellent to use for massage after activity.

Here's another great blog post to check out on the differences between the 2 types of frankincense:

Chocolate mint body butter


Is there anything better than mint chocolate??? As a conoseur of all things sweet - I think not! While shopping on Amazon, I ran across raw organic cocoa butter and decided it would make an amazing body butter paired with some Young Living peppermint essential oil. 

Making body butter sounds intimidating, right?  It's actually very simple to do and I find it empowering to know exactly what I am putting on my body. No sneaky "fragrance" or ingredients I can't pronounce. Just natural goodness! 


Chocolate Mint Body Butter

1/2 Cup Organic Raw Cocoa Butter

1/2 Cup Organic Unrefined Cold-pressed Coconut Oil

1/4 Cup Organic Raw Shea Butter

2 Tbsp Jojoba Oil (vitamin E, sweet almond or olive oil could be substituted as well)  

10-15 drops of Young Living Peppermint Essential Oil  

The cocoa butter I purchased came in a large brick. Warning: you will be tempted to EAT this because it smells so good! 


I ran a sharp knife under hot water and cut approximately 1/2 cup from the brick. I added it to a double boiler pan and set it on medium heat to melt.  


I then added the Shea butter and let the cocoa butter and Shea melt almost completely down, before adding the coconut oil. Once everything is reduced to a liquid, remove from heat and stir in the jojoba oil. 

Next, the mixture needs to come back to solid form so we can whip it with a mixer. I poured the liquid into my stand mixer bowl and put it in the refrigerator for about an hour. You can speed up the process by throwing it in the freezer as well, but don't let it get too hard or it won't whip well.  


Once your mixture is somewhat solid, whip until soft peaks form. This is when I add the YL Peppermint essential oil. I always start small and let my nose decide what works best for me. Mix the oil in thoroughly and store your body butter in a glass jar. 

See!!! Easy Peasy!!! With those harsh winter months closing in on us, your skin will be thanking you for this moisturizing blend!
