Thanks to GioNaturals I received their set of carrier oils at a discount in exchange for my honest review. I just recently started using essential oils more often and was curious about how the different carrier oils would enhance the benefits I was already seeing from using the essential oils. The set contains Castor Oil, Argan Oil, Tamanu Oil and Jojoba Oil. I’m sure you have at least heard of if not tried most of these carrier oils. Tamanu was one I hadn’t heard of before.
Here are my first impressions of the oils from the Gio Naturals Gift Set –
Argan Oil – light texture, strong olive oil smell, absorbs fast and scent dissipates
Castor Oil – thick and slightly waxy, earthy smell, goes on oily and stays that way until you rub it in with a lot of effort or wipe it off; this oil stays put
Tamanu – strange greyish color, strong herbal scent similar to a mix of sunflower, myrrh, bay and walnut, doesn’t absorb quickly; lays on the skin, light texture but very oily, must rub vigorously to force absorption, scent remains strong
Jojoba – pleasant, slightly sweet aroma that remains even after absorption, light oil with golden color, a little goes a long way and must be rubbed in well for it to not leave oily streaks
If you or someone you know is into essential oils then this is a perfect gift idea for them. With the variety of carrier oils, plus the extra vial to mix your own special oil blend, the options for treatment or application are almost endless. I’m glad I was introduced to Tamanu Oil in this set as it will be a medicinal addition to my skin care/treatment routine. The other oils have and will continue to be a regular part of my skin and hair care regimen.
These are the uses suggested by Gio Naturals –
