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.
FOR TOPICAL USE ONLY. NOT TO BE TAKEN INTERNALLY.
Should skin sensitivity occur discontinue use. Store in a cool dry place. Keep out of reach of children.

Cottonseed Oil for leather
I use cottonseed oil to keep my Peruvian show saddle in top condition. Virgin cottonseed oil is the traditional oil for saddles in Peru and I had a difficult time finding this product. The Cold Pressed Cottonseed oil is perfect. I am very pleased with the results and the pure quality of the oil.
