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 drop to your daily moisturiser for a antioxidizing boost. Use a gentle and effective facial cleanser.
Make your own nourishing hair mask, by blending with Coconut Oil (#203). Leave on for an hour, then wash as normal. Top tip – before you wet your hair, begin to lather your shampoo on your head, then add some water and continue to lather. This will help emulsify the oil and will rinse out easier.
Can be used as a base oil for massage. It is easily absorbed and locks in moisture. Add a few drops of your favourite essential oils a beautifully fragranced massage oil.
Use to make your own skincare creams, lotions and balms for a vitamin rich kick.
