Carrier Oils by Zurma


Make your own balms and salves, make your own massage oils, indulge in creating your own skincare blends.

If you suffer from allergies to cosmetic and skin products, using single oils may be a solution to skincare products with complex ingredients lists.

Choose from our large selection of quality oils from Zurma available in store or to purchase online.

Oils are extracted or ‘cold pressed’ from the nuts and seeds of plants. Zurma botanical oils are the highest quality oils available. Each batch has a full certificate of analysis, so you can be assured that Zurma oils are not adulterated in any way.

We refill most oil bottles {except for wheatgerm and some less popular oils} so please think of the planet’s resources and save your bottles. We don’t mind which brand of oil the bottle is we will refill it with the same oil for a much cheaper price so long as it is clearly labeled, and the bottle is clean, washed and most importantly for carrier oil – dried. See here for the oils we have in stock for refilling or call us to request your favourite oil.

If you would like larger amounts we can order in especially for you in 200ml, 500ml or 1000ml – please enquire by email or phone.

Zurma is our favourite brand of essential oils & is a local business so has a low carbon footprint.

How to use carrier oils:

Topically – Fragrance your own massage oil. Essential oils can be added to a nut or seed carrier oil. General guidelines for the safe dilution of essential oils recommended by the Tisserand Institute per 100ml is 14 drops (0.5%), 30 drops (1%), 60 drops (2%), or 90 drops (3%). Please note some oils are irritants and should not be used on the skin.

Bath or Shower – Add your carrier oil to a bath – a teaspoon to a tablespoon along with your choice of essential oils will float on the surface and moisturise the skin as you bathe.

Perfume – Making perfumes with carrier oils and essential oils is rewarding and fun. As you learn to blend you will find endless combinations that inspire you. Use Jojoba or Fractionated coconut oil as a base to make your own natural perfume. Find a beginners perfumery book to guide you.

Make-up remover – Make up is oil soluble meaning a carrier oil will help dilute and wash it off. Use sparingly.

Storage – Keep oils out of direct sunlight and replace lid as soon as you have finished using your oil to keep it fresh for the longest amount of time.

Safety – Rotate oils so that you do not become sensitised to any particular oil. Discontinue use if you have a reaction. Those with nut allergies must be cautious when choosing carrier oils.
