Do you use essential oils??

I thought about trying this, and if it doesn't work no big deal I guess I'll just be moisturizing my legs LOL I'm not expecting it to completely get rid of the few I have, but hopefully diminish them a bit.

My question is:

What type of oil can be used as a carrier oil?

I have organic unrefined extra virgin coconut oil and unrefined organic sesame oil (oh, I also have castor oil that is to be used on the skin)....Can I use either of those, or does it have to be something more specific?

Not sure. I got cats so I don't use them. I've read many believe oils are dangerous to cats so I'm not taking a chance.

I do. I use Lavendar oil for my hair. Tea tree oil as well. I was using Peppermint oil, that stuff is so strong and hurts like hell when just a tiny bit gets in your eye. I was using that for my hair too in deep conditions and stuff.

Really? Well I have two cats, so I'll have to look into that more!

Yeah I've seen both sides of the "debate" but too scared to risk it. Sucks cause oils sound amazing. I'm still researching too. I Just need more info. :)

I use them, but I'm not very knowledgeable about them yet. I do love them though!

Coconut oil is a good carrier, you can also use Olive oil

I think I'll get our vets opinion on this as well, thank you.

Yes, I do! I love them! And no, I don't sell them so I am not just saying this with an agenda. I use coconut oil for my carrier for most things, but I have also used sweet almond and grapeseed oil.

I would use coconut or jojoba oil. Don't use castor oil.. It's VERY drying to the skin.
