Oil Must Haves
There are so many fun oil products that you can have and it can be overwhelming. Build up slowly and pretty soon you will have a collection of things you love that will change the wellness in your home. One of my favorite things is all the different ways I can use oils in my home. Below are some of my favorite products to use with oils and to have in my little oil corner of my home.

Knowing what carrier oil to use can be tricky, there are so many different options so I thought I would share my favorite three with you and a little about each one and when/why to use it.
Jojoba oil comes from the seed of the jojoba plant. This oil is commonly found in facial and hair products, because it works to seal your skin with a protective barrier to keep the moisture in your skin. This oil has been said to mimic the skin’s natural sebum which means your skin won’t recognize it as something foreign. Instead, reacts as if it’s something that you naturally produced. This makes it a great option to use in your DIY serums and moisturizers. Jojoba oil has a slightly nutty aroma, is gentle, moisturizing, and absorbs quickly.
Fractionated Coconut Oil is found in the meat or kernel of coconuts. Most people already have and use it in the kitchen so it is well known universally! Research has shown that used topically coconut oil can benefit the skin in many ways. Coconut oil has no noticeable aroma, is high in essential fatty acids, and absorbs well. It will leave your skin feeling silky and moisturized, without being overly greasy. A little goes a long way when using coconut oil.
Sweet almond oil comes from the kernels of sweet almonds. This has a slightly sweet and nutty aroma, with a thicker consistency. It is super moisturizing for the skin, hair and nails, making it an ideal choice for your DIY lotions, hair masks, and cuticle oils. Almond oil is rich in Vitamin E, but it also contains oleic acid which is especially beneficial for dry or aging skin.
