Grapeseed: The Popular Carrier Oil

Grapeseed essential oil is a popular massage oil. It is used a lot with both aromatherapy and massage. The reason why it is so popular is because it works well with other essential oils.

Grapeseed oil is a good choice for a carrier oil. It has a light texture, which makes it nice to use with massages as well. The lighter the texture, the easier it is to be absorbed in the skin. Massage oils need to easily be absorbed back in to the skin in order for it to be effective. No one would enjoy having oil stay on his or her skin for a long time.

Another good benefit is that grapeseed has no aroma. If you are doing aromatherapy that means it will not affect the aroma of the other oils it is mixed with. Carrier oils that are odorless are very beneficial.

It also is non-greasy. This makes it a good choice for massage therapy. The oil can be applied directly to the skin that is getting massaged and it won t leave the skin greasy.

Grapeseed essential oil also works as an astringent. It often tightens and tones the skin. If you have a cleansing massage this can help with skin problems you might be having, like body acne.

Another advantage of grapeseed essential oil is that it is rich in linoleic acid. Linoleic is a fatty acid, which helps the skin. It works with the cell membranes to keep the skin healthy.

Grapeseed is also popular with massage oils because of its regenerative properties. It also is very moisturizing. Both are great when dealing with the massage.

There are many different reasons why you should use grapeseed. There is no wonder why it is so popular with massages and aromatherapy. If you are in need of a carrier oil, you now know which one to use.
