    Yay!! My roller balls have arrived!! Which do you think will behave better as a carrier oil to mix EOs, apricot or avocado? These are just for personal use.

    I would go with whichever one is thinner out of the bottle, simply so it won't tend to gum up the roller.

    I use fractionated coconut. Apricot would work better in your case I think. Avocado is greasier.

    I second fractionated CO. I use it in small spray bottles with EO and it hasn't gunked up the mechanism plus its not a greasy oil, soaks right into the skin.

    My fave roll-on perfume oil company uses rice bran oil. I love their perfumes!

    Just EO and the oil? Anything else?
    Thank you!

    I've been reading (here) a lot about both of these. Sounds like they are good oils for me to keep for many things that I'm looking to make. Thank you!!

    I use half avocado and half Cyclomethicone, but I love rice bran oil, so I might try that in my next batch!
