True carrier oils are generally cold-pressed or macerated vegetable oils taken from, amongst others:
- Apricot oil
Sweet almond oil
Grape seed oil
Borage seed oil
Fractionated coconut oil
- Sweet almond oil and grapeseed oil are very popular carrier oils.
- Safety aspects
- Peanuts are legumes, not "true" nuts, but they share with true nuts the risk of causing allergic reactions, even in minute amounts. Pure peanut and nut-derived oils are not usually allergenic, (as they do not typically contain the protein aceous part of he plant.) Avoiding them may be safer, as serious peanut allergy is widespread, oil purity cannot be guaranteed, and other hypoallergenic oils are easily substituted.
- If there is any risk of ingestion, mineral oil best avoided
