May I ask why you need a water based carrier? Do you have an allergy or is it just the feel of the oil that puts you off. One of the benefits or Aromatherapy oil is the mixes of various carrier oils which have therapeutic properties in themselves before even adding the therapy blend.
God bless

Aromatherapy is an oil based therapy, however if you would like some of the benefits of the essential oils in water, you can purchase hydrolats/hydrosols, which are a by-product in essential oil production.
