The oil is heat extracted from the seeds of the fruit. Unfortunately it is unavailable in its natural state, for unrefined grapeseed oil is considered to be unpalatable - certainly it has an objectionable odour. The refined oil has an attractive green tint and an exceptionally fine texture. It is also virtually odourless, hence its popularity with those aromatherapists who prefer to use bland base oils.
Percentage in Blends: Can be used as a base oil, 100 per cent, though many aromatherapists prefer to add at least 10 per cent of an unrefined oil, such as sunflower seed or hazelnut, to increase its vitamin content.
Bianca Rosa® natural carrier oils provide the perfect medium in which to dilute potent essential oils and "carry" them onto the skin and into the body. These deep-nourishing oils provide even distribution and absorption with light and non-sticky lubrication. Depending on the potency of the essential oil being diluted, generally, adding 1-3 drops of essential oil to every 5 mL (1 tsp.) of carrier oil is sufficient for most massage or skin care needs. Massage gently into the skin with a circular motion. Apply as needed or as directed.
