Rice bran oil has become an increasingly popular vegetable oil that offers many advantages over standard vegetable oils. Millions of people are now using it to cook their food all over the world. Rice is one of the most widely available and popular food on the planet. The rice bran oil is extracted from the germ and husk of the rice kernels.

Rice bran oil is an increasingly popular cooking oil with a subtle, earthy flavor. 

It has a very high smoke point, which is why it is commonly used in high-temperature cooking methods, such as stir-frying and deep-frying. In terms of similarity to other vegetable oils, it has a similar composition to that of peanut oil. It is healthier than many oils.

Rice bran oil is most often used in Asian cultures, including Japan and China, primarily because rice is already a staple food in their cuisines. However, the oil is becoming increasingly popular in other parts of the world because of its relatively low price point and the many health benefits that come from using it in food preparation. 

It is most widely praised for its content of vitamin E, ideal fatty acid balance, antioxidant capacity, and cholesterol-lowering abilities.

How to mix carrier oil with essential oils

Whenever possible, purchase organic, cold-pressed carrier oils from a manufacturer you trust. Although most carrier oils don’t cause an allergic reaction, you should always do a patch test prior to using.

To perform a patch test:

  1. Add a small amount of carrier oil to the inside of your wrist or just below your ear.
  2. Cover the oil with a bandage.
  3. Check back on the area after 24 hours.
  4. If irritation occurs, rinse thoroughly, and avoid future use.

If you’re allergic to tree nuts, you shouldn’t use oils derived from tree nuts. This includes sweet almond oil, argan oil, and apricot kernel oil.

When diluting essential oils with a carrier oil, it’s important to follow these dilution guidelines.

For adults:

  • 2.5 percent dilution: 15 drops essential oil per 6 teaspoons carrier oil
  • 3 percent dilution: 20 drops essential oil per 6 teaspoons carrier oil
  • 5 percent dilution: 30 drops essential oil per 6 teaspoons carrier oil
  • 10 percent dilution: 60 drops essential oil per 6 teaspoons carrier oil

For children:

  • .5 to 1 percent dilution: 3 to 6 drops essential oil per 6 teaspoons carrier oil

Always store carrier oils in a cool, dark place, preferably in the refrigerator. You should also keep them in a dark glass bottle.
