Essential Oily Home - Researching Essential Oils and Carriers

You may be wondering why should I trust the products from Essential Oily Home. Many hours of research have gone and continue to go into the essential oils and the carriers that are used to create products that work and are all natural.

Essential Oils

They are 100% pure, free of any fillers, synthetics or harmful chemicals. They are all GC/MS tested to ensure quality and safety. What is GC/MS you may ask. Well, Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry is an analytical method that combines the features of gas chromatography and mass spectrometry to identify different substances within a sample component matrix. GC/MS analysis is generally considered one of the most accurate analyses available.

Further research on individual essential oils to determine which essential oil(s) is the best fit for our products.

  • their uses (that's where the Therapeutic Properties come in handy)

  • determine their product properties such as Country, Plant Part and Cultivation

  • chemical families, botanical families and extraction method

  • therapeutic properties, note and aroma

  • safety and shelf life

  • GC/MS data

Here is an example of Frankincense (Boswellia carterii)

Country: Somaliland Plant Part: Resin

Cultivation: Certified Organic Chemical Families: Monoterpenes, Ethers, Esters Botanical Families: Burseraceae Extraction Method: Hydro-distilled Therapeutic Properties: Analgesic, Antioxidant, Anti-inflammatory, Skin regenerative, Immunostimulant, Tonic, Antifungal, Antispasmodic, Sedative Note: Base Aromas: Resinous, Woodsy, Fresh, Spicy, Piney, Lemony Safety & Shelf Life: No known safety issues. Shelf Life is 3 years. GC/MS Data: An analysis report depending on the batch can be viewed.

Side Note: Essential Oily Home does not promote ingestion of any essential oils.



Carriers are the other component or components of a product. Essential Oils should not be used without some type of carrier(s) when being used topically.

Time to look at some carriers that Essential Oily Home uses:

  • Jojoba Oil resembles the natural oil produced by our skin (sebum), it’s easily absorbed, delivering luxurious hydration and antioxidants without clogging pores.

  • Coconut Oil - Pure, unrefined, unfractionated - a versatile skincare staple—high in saturated fats and lauric acid, it’s one of the most effective natural moisturizers, even for sensitive skin. It doesn’t clog pores, restores deep hydration, soothes dryness and itchiness, and blends easily into all manner of products. (Or use it all by itself!)

  • Argan Oil - Rich in essential fatty acids, Vitamin E, and antioxidants, argan oil helps to restore a supple, hydrated, youthful complexion. It’s non-greasy and doesn’t clog pores.

  • Shea Butter - a thick butter that’s solid at room temperature, and melts easily. It’s full of antioxidants, and Vitamins A and E, making it supremely nourishing for skin—even very dry, chronically irritated, or recovering skin.

  • Cocoa Butter - Adds a firmness and a decadent chocolate aroma to skincare blends
