Content review : Content review : Content review : Content review : Suitable for massage therapists and aromatherapists who wish to refresh or further their existing knowledge of this therapeutic medium to benefit their clients. Carrier oils play a far more significant role in massage than many people realise, and in fact some people feel they are of little importance. To believe this would be a mistake though, because they offer a wealth of health-giving benefits of their own. They contain vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids, and many of them soften and improve the condition of the skin. Some of them are also highly effective in treating irritated, sensitive conditions such as eczema and psoriasis as well as helping to reduce wrinkles and scar tissue. There are a wide range of carrier oils to choose from, plus some other infused or macerated oils such as Calendula and St Johns Wort. The variety of vegetable oils available to a newcomer can seem a little bewildering at first, since there is very little written on this important subject in many books. But choosing which one is for you is not really complicated at all. Choosing a carrier oil is simple, - you choose one with the properties that you need for your particular needs. You just need to know some basic facts about the properties, actions and viscosity of vegetable oils, and then choosing becomes easier. This will be a practical, hands-on 1-day workshop where we shall discover the therapeutic benefits of fixed oils and how they can enhance and broaden your existing practice. We will cover: Introduction - what is an oil Extraction methods Organic oils Components of fixedherbal oils Quality, safety and storage The growth of carrier oils in skin care and body therapies Benefits in skin care and therapeutic uses Creating blends Profile and overview of 12 oils, including infused oils: Safflower fractionated Coconut Sweet Almond Macadamia Jojoba Hazelnut Walnut Grapeseed Arnica Calendula St Johns Wort Carrot
