Does anyone know what the carrier oil that is the thinnest in consistency is?

As far as the seabuckthorn, I just recently read how it is the most colorful of the carrier oils, is a thin consistency (which I like bc of my acne) is loaded with antioxidants and is healing and rejuvenating for dry, uv damaged, and wrinkled skin. It's also supposed to be good for hair and scalp as well and many different application of skin problems. It's color is intriguing to me, since I know some of the most colorful foods (fruit/veggie) are loaded with the most antioxidants. If this is the most colorful carrier oil....maybe that applies here too. I really want to try putting on a thin, almost watery oil to moisturize at night to see if not using thick creams will help with my always clogged pores and cut down on some sebum production. Does anyone else here use this? How do you like it?

Sea Buckthorn should be added to a carrier oil. One good one for oily skin is Grapeseed. Even diluted the SB oil can stain sheets and clothing so be aware. It is excellent for acne and oily skin, but should not be applied straight. It is loaded with antioxidants.

Here are a few others that are light and good for acne:

Hazelnut oil
slightly astringent
intended to be used on acne prone skin
light, non-greasy, fast absorption

Kukui nut oil
great for all skin types, even acne-prone
very light and non-greasy
absorbs rapidly
aids in healing acne

Jojoba oil
helps to break down sebum in plugged-up pores
most resembles your own skin oils
good choice for oily or acne prone skin
highly stable
protects skin from harmful bacteria
clears skin of blemishes

camellia oil
non-greasy
easily absorbed
suitable for blemished, acne prone skin
reported to diminish fine lines and pitted acne scarring

of course there are other advantages to using these oils, I only listed the descriptions pertaining to acne prone skin.

I would suggest you google each one to find additional information, you may find one that suits more of your needs, for instance, jojoba oil is also excellent for for the hair as a scalp treatment.

Also , I beleive garden of wisdom has sample packs that you can buy. Very Happy

sea buckthorn is very beneficial, and has been used for centuries for various conditions externally (wound healing) and internally (treat gastric ulcer). This oil has BRIGHT orange color:

I have a lot of sea buckthorn oil, but was not able to use it on skin much just because of the stains. A friend of mine that had ulcer some time ago used most of it internally. This oil has wonderful healing properties.

Hi, I posted this on the OCM thread it has 2 links for oils and their properties.

I just want to post a link to
an article listing the benefits of many common oils (not all we have discussed) to the skin as well as which are best for different skin types. I know there are many oils besides these but it is a great place for novices to oils for your skin to start learning.

This is an excellent, informative site where you can purchase and learn about the base carrier oils, essential oils, aromatherapy blends and fragrance oils. There are charts for each category telling the source of the individual oils, what goodies (such as vitamins and linoleic acids) are contained in each, what type of skin they are recommended for, what purposes they serve and in the case of the essential oils, what conditions they treat. Just click on the name of the oil for an in-depth discussion of the oil. I hope you enjoy it!

LAT, you're so welcome! I have bookmarked the sites you recommended as well. I adore the oils and can be enthralled for hours on these sites. I know what I'll be doing later today! BTW, I recently added hempseed oil to my arsenal because of the great thread here. It is such an amazing oil. Love EDS! ~JJ Very Happy

I got this oil from Russia and Ukraine when on my trip there. You can try Russian pharmacies in US, they usually carry sea buckthorn oil. Often Russian stores have small pharmacy departments within them.
