Aromatically, Virgin Coconut Oil possesses the distinctive aroma of coconuts. A naturally and deliciously aromatic butter can be made by combining Cocoa Butter and Coconut Oil.
Therapeutically, Coconut Oil is highly emollient and moisturizing for the skin, hair and lips. It helps to protect the skin as it leaves a thin lipid layer on the skin. Its lubricating properties make it a nice choice for use in massage.
Although it is called oil, the Coconut oil is firm at room temperature. Fractionated coconut oil is an option if you prefer a liquid coconut oil without flavor of coconut.
The ideal Coconut Oil is extracted from fresh, raw coconut (not dried) and/or fresh coconut milk at low temperatures using a procedure known as the Wet Process. A good quality contains very little moisture and thus has a stable shelf life.
First, “coconut milk” was obtained by compressing wet coconut meat. Then the oil is separated from the water. Methods for separating oil from water are cooking, fermenting, freezing, using an enzyme or mechanical centrifuge.

Carrier oil, also known as base oil or vegetable oil, is used to dilute essential oils and absolutes before they are applied to the skin in massage and aromatherapy. They are so named because they carry the essential oil onto the skin. Diluting essential oils is a critical practice when using essential oils. Oils alone are volatile because they begin to dissipate as soon as they are applied. The rate of dispersion will vary based on how light or heavy the carrier oil is.
Carrier oils do not contain a concentrated aroma, unlike essential oils, though some, such as olive, have a mild distinctive smell. Neither do they evaporate like essential oils, which are more volatile. The carrier oils used should be as natural and unadulterated as possible. Many people feel organic oils are of higher quality. Cold-pressing and maceration are the two main methods of producing carrier oils.
