What are carrier oils?
Carrier Oil” is a term generally used in the contexts of aromatherapy and cosmetic recipes for natural skin and hair care.
Carrier oils and essential oils are made from plants. Carrier oils are used to dilute essential oils and “carry” them to your skin. That’s because essential oils are potent and can cause irritation when applied directly to your skin.
A Carrier Oil is a vital aspect of an aromatherapy massage or a natural cosmetic such as a soap, bath oil, body oil, cream, lip balm, lotion, or other moisturizer, as it can affect the usefulness of the massage and the color, scent, therapeutic properties, and shelf life of the final product, respectively.
Most carrier oils are unscented or lightly scented and don’t interfere with an essential oil’s therapeutic properties. They may be used alone or with other oils to nourish your skin.
Cold Pressing
It is a chemical-free process that involves placing the nuts or seeds in a horizontal press that has an 'expeller,' which is a rotating screw. The screw drives the nuts and seeds through a barrel-shaped hollow and compresses them until the high pressure squeezes out the oil, which seeps out through the opening, while the ‘meal,’ or the debris, remains inside the barrel. The oil is then filtered, resulting in the finished product. Due to the absence of solvent residues in Cold Pressing, the outcome is cleaner, purer oils that are higher in natural colors and scents.
Benefits & Uses
A Rich Source of Antioxidants
Wheat germ oil is a great source of Vitamin E, which is said to be a powerful antioxidant. "It helps fight against free radical damage. Coming from the center of the wheat kernel, wheat germ is known for at least 23 odd nutrients, including Vitamins A, B, D, and E," says Shonali Sabherwal, a Macrobiotic Nutritionist, Chef, and Instructor based in Mumbai. These vitamins all contribute to various functions of the body, particularly the skin.
Vitamin E travels throughout the body neutralizing free radicals which would otherwise damage fat-containing structures like cell membranes and brain cells," says Dr. Manoj K. Ahuja, Fortis Hospital. It also might help with oxidative stress.
A Great Face Cleanser
Wheat germ oil is a natural oil that helps in cleansing the face efficiently. It helps seal moisture back and also gets rid of excess sebum, which could lead to other skin problems like acne, pimples, etc. It does not clog pores as it is non-comedogenic, "says Shilpa Arora, a Health Practitioner, Nutritionist, and Macrobiotic Health Coach based in New Delhi.
A few drops of the oil can be used on your skin or added to your face packs or masks. You can also take a few drops and massage gently onto your face and let it rest. Those with oily skin conditions must get in touch with a skincare expert before applying the oil.
Low Cholesterol
It is rich in Octacosanol, which is a long-chain fatty acid with alcohol that promotes and aids physical performance, including strength and stamina. Research also shows Octacosanol's ability to affect fat metabolism, decreases cholesterol production (helps to bring down LDL) and prevents hardening of arteries, which could account for the cardiovascular benefits," says Dr. Anju Sood, a renowned Nutritionist based in Bangalore.
She further adds, "Wheat germ oil contains the goodness of omega-3 fatty acids, which can help in regulating the nervous system systematically."
Help with Skin Scars
Because of its high Vitamin E content, wheat germ oil helps in building collagen, the most abundantly found protein in the body that provides the skin its strength and structure. "The oil repairs heals, and prevents scarring. In fact, regular application on scars can completely banish them. Make sure the oil is natural and cold-pressed else it will lose most of its nutrients," says Shilpa.
Vitamin A, D and fatty acids present in wheat germ oil help with cracked, scarred skin, giving it an even tone. It also provides natural hydration to the skin," adds Shonali.
