Organic Safflower Oil is believed to be an excellent oil for skincare as it is rich in essential fatty acids and natural antioxidants.

Organic Safflower Oil is very light on the skin, with a non-greasy texture and can be absorbed fairly easily when applied to your body.

Its moisturising and emollient properties make this oil a popular choice in homemade recipes.

Organic Safflower Oil 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 Safflower Oil with other carrier oils to extend its shelf life.

How to Use
Skincare: Use on its own as a moisturiser or can be blended to make your own balms, lotions and serums. Can be used as a gentle and effective cleanser and make-up remover.

Massage: An excellent addition to a massage oil base, blend with your favourite essential oils and another carrier oil for added benefits.

Haircare: 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.

Food Use
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.
