Virgin Flaxseed Oil has a high Alpha Linolenic content which means it is best suited to those with dry skin. It is super moisturising and nourishing when applied to the skin. May not be suitable for those with oily, acne prone skin as it does have a moderately high comedogenic rating.
Flaxseed has a high fatty acid content making it an effective addition to massage oil blends, the oil brings moisturising and lubricating properties that will leave your skin feeling soft and moisturised. It is advisable to blend Flaxseed Oil with other carrier oils to extend its shelf life.
Flaxseed Oil works really well for hair too and can make an excellent addition to your hair care regime for shiny and healthy-looking hair.
All vegetable oils and fats are 100% fat and are generally high in calories (on average about 120 calories per tablespoon).
Vegetable oils are often used in food preparation for salad dressings, cooking, frying, baking, sauces and marinades. As a general guide, virgin and unrefined oils have more of the oil’s natural flavour and lend themselves well for use in cold dishes. Refined oils generally have longer shelf lives and may have a higher smoke point and therefore be better for high heat cooking, but this varies depending on the type of oil.
Each oil has its own distinct flavour and nutrient and Fatty Acid composition, so each oil may be used for different purposes depending on your need.
Add a couple of drops of Flaxseed Oil to your moisturiser to boost its hydration powers. It can be used as a gentle and effective make up remover.
An excellent addition to a massage oil base, blend with your favourite essential oils and another carrier oil for added benefits.
Add a few drops to damp hair and comb through. Leave for 45 minutes to an hour. Wash and style as normal. Top tip – begin to lather the shampoo before adding water to help emulsify the oil to enable it to rinse out fully.
Apply a couple of drops to your hands and rub together, then smooth over your hair after styling to calm any frizz and fly away hairs. You only need a little oil so a drop or too will do.
As with any new product always conduct a patch test before first use.
