Carrier Oils

Carrier Oils

Amphora Aromatics provides nut and seed-derived Carrier Oils of the highest quality.
Although the properties of these unscented oils are often ignored, their benefits are considerable.

Carrier Oils are cold pressed, using as little heat as possible for extraction. The viscosity of oils varies with each type, as does the ease of absorption into the skin.

What does Cold Pressed mean?

The concept of cold-pressing dates back more than 150 years, and is the most efficient and natural method of extracting oils from seeds.
