Wheatgerm Oil 50ml (natural preservative)
Wheatgerm Carrier Oil 50ml 
High in Vitamin E and a great natural preservative. Use between 1% to 10% in other blends to work as a preservative and to add multi vitamin benefits. It has a strong nutty musk odour, so it can be used as a dark base note instead of Patchouli. i.e. it can add depth to other aromas. Take careful consideration of how Wheatgerm affects the overall scent of the blend. It can naturally extend shelf life of other oils by about 12 months. 
This unrefined wheatgerm has a strong aroma so it's not a massage oil on it's own, use sparingly and it will work wonders for your home made cosmetics.

Usage suggestion:
Use the carrier oils with or without essential oils. Add a few drops of your favourite essential oil to this carrier oil to make a massage oil. Remember you only need a few drop of essential oil in the top of the 50ml carrier oil. Start with 1% essential oil to 99% carrier and increase essential oil until you have desired aroma strength. Do not use massage oils when pregnant, on children or animals, despite what some advocate. If you are unsure then ask us. This unrefined wheatgerm has a strong aroma.
Safety:
For external use only, avoid contact with eyes. Do not use on children, or when pregnant or while using medication. 
An essential oil should not be used instead of seeing a doctor for medical advice. Never self prescribe and if in doubt please ask your doctor. Always do a small test of the oil before use. If an allergic reaction occurs, wash off the oil with soap and water and then seek medical attention.
