doTERRA® Fractionated Coconut Oil is a specially formulated carrier oil that has all of the emollient properties of coconut oil without the thick texture and heavy weight that is characteristic of the regular coconut oil you’ll find at the grocery store. Unlike regular coconut oil, this all-natural, Fractionated Coconut Oil easily absorbs into the skin, leaving it feeling silky smooth, deeply soft, and non-greasy, making it beautifully unique from other vegetable carrier oils and especially ideal for topical therapies and applications.
Many essential oils require dilution in order to be safely applied to sensitive skin, including the skin of children and the elderly. doTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil provides a seamless dilution solution and is also great to use on its own or as a base for your own essential oil creations. Fractionated Coconut Oil is colorless, odorless, does not stain and is completely soluble with all essential oils, making it the perfect carrier oil. You will love the feather-light feeling of it against your skin as you apply it. After absorption, it will leave your skin feeling as soft as it is, with profound hydrating effects that provide a soothing barrier without clogging pores. Even the driest skin will become soft and moisturized.
The primary appeal of using Fractionated Coconut Oil with other doTERRA products is its extremely versatility. It can be used to formulate anything from bug repellent to diaper cream to hair serum. This widespread usability coupled with its power to deeply nourish the skin and the body as a whole is what makes coconut oil one of nature’s miracle creations.
Fractionated Coconut Oil is a necessity to keep on hand along with the rest of the essential oils in your collection. It’s the ultimate sidekick that can help dilution go smoothly and come to the rescue if you accidentally apply too much of a certain essential oil. While washing with water will only aggravate the condition, rubbing with Fractionated Coconut Oil will soften the intensity of the oil and bring relief as your skin makes the recovery toward normalcy. A good dilution rule of thumb to follow is to use one part essential oil to five parts Fractionated Coconut Oil, and adjust accordingly for more or less skin sensitivity.
