Course Overview

Module 1: What exactly is a carrier oil? Seeds as source, and how do they differ from essential oils and other aromatic compounds? The many other names that describe these oils, five common fatty acids that represent in every oil.

 Module 2:
Understanding the oils by dominant groups of nourishing and healing fatty acids, monounsaturated, and polyunsaturated. How the compound oxygen changes the very nature of some oils and causes them to dry. The 'essential fatty acids' and how valuable they are for the health of the body and the skin.

 Module 3:
Oils and shelf life, how to maximize the life of oil combinations. The healing fraction is a small but powerful component of the taste, color, and nutrition oils bring to skincare. Solid butters and how they are also oils, and composed of many of the same compounds as our skin.

Module 4:
How butters help improve the feel and effectiveness of balms and skincare combinations, plus how to extend the shelf life of delicate oils and formulas. How the affinity between skin and lipid oils improves the health and condition of the whole body, plus the practice of skin oiling in history and how it can benefit our health.
 
 Plus, you'll find bonus e-books with recipes and templates for creating your own formulas throughout the course.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I never felt I could formulate a product as I felt I had a missing link. What kind of oil to use? These next few weeks with you is going to change that.


Blessings, Kitty
