Are you a beauty professional? A massage therapist?

Informed clients are looking to their wellness providers for alternatives to products and treatments using harsh chemicals.

More and more people are asking specifically for natural products.

Your and your business can benefit from this healthy trend!

This course is geared toward massage therapists and skin care professionals who want to incorporate carrier oils and natural options into their treatments.

This course is all about making the switch from chemical products to natural ones- using carrier oils.

To start off, we will cover:

  • what are carrier oils and how we get them

  • the differences between essential oils and carrier oils

  • what affects the cost of a carrier oil

  • fatty acids in carrier oils

Next we focus on specific individual carrier oils.

Base carrier oils: the most versatile oils to start using

  • sweet almond oil

  • rice bran oil

  • apricot kernel oil

  • sunflower oil

Value added carrier oils: these oils are worth having to use in addition to the base oils

  • sesame oil

  • avocado oil

  • oat oil

  • pumpkin seed oil

  • evening primrose oil

  • jojoba

High value carrier oils: these oils are mainly used in a skin care application, providing luxurious benefits to your client's treatment

  • argan oil

  • pomegranate oil

  • rosehip oil

  • borage seed oil

Herbal infused oils: these are mainly used in a massage application, but can also apply directly to a facial application

You will also learn where and how to strategically use essential oils in your practice- so you can offer added value using aromatherapy  to your clients. Includes instructions and tutorial on how to make your own herbal infused oils.
