Grapeseed Carrier Oil (Vitis vinifera) is a pleasant, light green, odourless oil and is one of the lightest carrier oils available. The astringent nature of this oil tightens the skin, minimizing the appearance of wrinkles, increases elasticity while locking in moisture. The anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties help eliminate symptoms of eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, and even allergic reactions and rashes. Grapeseed oil also stimulates the growth of new cells and protects the skin from infections. Grapeseed Oil can be used on the skin by itself or with essential oils. Blend 5 drops of essential oil to one teaspoon of grapeseed oil. For larger amounts blend one millilitre of essential oil(s) for every 20 millilitres of carrier oil. This will give a 5% dilution and is the recommended dilution for most essential oils.
