Unlike other vegetable carrier oils, Fractionated Coconut Oil leaves skin feeling silky and smooth without a greasy after effect. Fractionated Coconut Oil readily absorbs into the skin and is soluble with all essential oils. Because Fractionated Coconut Oil is colourless and odourless, it is perfect for blending with essential oils as it preserves and maintains their original fragrance and benefits. This carrier oil is ideal for dry or troubled skin and provides a soothing topical barrier without clogging pores. Fractionated Coconut Oil should be used when applying strong essential oils topically to help reduce skin sensitivity.

Not one that I would diffuse, but definitely application on the skin, and useful to keep in the sports bag for sprains and aches as they evolve. This is the blend of the trainer, the sports person, and the keen gardener. Also really good for the young ones for growing pains. Apply as a compress on spine and on reflex points on the feet.
