Life-Flo Fractionated Coconut Oil Description

  • 100% Pure
  • First Choice
  • Skin Care

Fractionated coconut oil is truly a versatile oil that is feather-light, absorbs readily into the skin without clogging pores, is excellent for dry, troubled skin, and is food grade. It is also an excellent carrier oil for essential oils, for handmade skin and hair products, aromatherapy and massage therapy. Unlike many other carrier oils, it is highly stable, odorless, deodorized,  non-staining, and colorless. Fractionated coconut oil is a fraction of the whole oil in which certain chains of fatty acids are separated, refined, clarified, and deodorized while maintaining the integrity of the emollient and moisturizing benefits of the oil.


Directions

For personal care, it can be applied to the skin for face and body care. Can be used on all skin types and is excellent for mature, dry-damaged skin. May also be used as a massage oil.

4 DIY Recipes to Bring Essential Oils into Your Daily Life

Ever notice how certain smells can invoke delight bordering on rapture, an inward swooning as it were? Our sense of smell has the power to make us both exceedingly happy and downright miserable (think: porta-potty). The olfactory system is intimately connected to associative learning and emotional processing, and certain oils give off molecules that trigger signals to the brain’s limbic system.

According to a Yale Scientific article, “…the olfactory system is the only sensory system that involves the amygdala and the limbic system in its primary processing pathway. This link explains why smells are often linked to specific memories.” The other senses do not pass through these brain areas and, hence, are less likely to trigger such visceral reactions.

The basic tools of aromatherapy are essential oils. They are made from fragrant essences found in specific plant cells in a wide variety of plants, from rosemary to roses. These particular plant cells — typically located under the surface of leaves, bark or peel — derive their olfactory signature from the elements: sun, air, soil and water.

To produce essential oils, the plant essences are usually distilled with steam and/or water or are cold-pressed. Oils that are made through chemical processes are not considered true essential oils, as these chemicals negate the oil’s therapeutic value.

These days, you can find aromatherapy being used in a wide range of settings — from spas to hospitals — to treat an array of conditions. The general consensus is that certain scents can relieve pain, improve mood and promote a sense of relaxation.

Research backs this up: According to the Yale article, “Mie University School of Medicine found that patients with depression needed smaller doses of antidepressant medications after citrus fragrance treatment.” Additionally, a University of Vienna study showed that when the scent of orange oil was used in dental clinics, female patients had markedly less anxiety. 

Want to start exploring essential oils but not sure where to begin? Vitacost collaborated with Adina Grigore, author of the recent book Just the Essentials, to bring you four simple recipes that show the ease and diversity with which you can incorporate essential oils into your lifestyle.
