Wheatgerm is used to relieve the symptoms of dermatitis, using it for massage may be too heavy on its own, but with its great nourishing qualities, we suggest using it as a good choice to mix a small percentage when mixing a massage oil or preparing a carrier oil blend.
What are carrier oils?
Carrier oil, also known as base oil or vegetable oil, is used to dilute essential oils and absolute before they are applied to the skin in massage and aromatherapy. They act as a carrier for the essential oil onto the skin. They do not contain concentrated aroma, unlike essential oils. Ogam Aromatherapy offers a range of 6 different carrier oils, each with various therapeutic properties. Choosing an oil will depend on the area being massaged, the presenting conditions and the client's sensitivity or requirements. Carrier oils can be easily blended to combine their properties of viscosity, acceptability, lubrication, absorption and aroma to suit your needs.
