The carrier oils used in massage are vegetal oils used as a base for incorporating aromatherapy oils. The base makes up more than 90 percent of the massage oil, so its gliding properties, and the rate of absorption in the skin will be majorly determined by it. The carrier should be ultimately the massage therapist’s choice, as opposed to the essential oils which should be chosen based on the patient’s preferences.
