Whether it is for therapeutic massage or for consumption, it is the quality of oil that is important. Dietary oils are best when unrefined. All refining except specialized steam distillation of essential oils damages the natural qualities of the oils. For example extra virgin olive oil contains bitter compounds which reduce blood pressure.
Most vegetable oils and margarine that you buy in the supermarket have undergone treatment with harsh chemicals which makes them toxic. In fact you are much better off having butter or extra virgin olive oil, or getting some fat from meat and lots from fish.
One the other end of the scale, essential oils comprise the terpenes and wonderful healing oils found in nature. The other end of refining if you like.What mollasses is to sugar. What expellor wheat germ oil is to white bread.
