Argan OilFree Spirit Botanicals
Our Carriers oils can be used the way they are or blended with essential oils to create a personal scent.Some oils like Rose hip seed, Se buckthorn seed, and JoJoba oil have very good healing qualities all on there own. We prefer the oils that are un-refined and retain there colour and smell.
We recommend that no more than 4% essential oils be blended with the unscented oils to create your personal scent. Some of them are better for the face, and others are better for the body.
