BENEFITS:

Flax seed (also known as linseed) oil comes from the pretty blue-flowering plant known as Linum usitatissimum, which grows throughout Europe and America and is particularly well known for its oil-rich seeds. The rich, golden oil is highly recommended for whole body nutrition and is considered to be nature's richest source of omega-3 fatty acids. It has a slow absorption rate. Used on its own or as the sole carrier in a massage blend - it may feel slightly sticky. The texture can be lightened and the ease of absorption increased by blending it with a lighter oil, such as apricot or coconut (in a ratio of, say, 20% Flaxseed oil to 80% of the lighter oil).  

Flaxseed oil can be applied to the skin to soothe a variety of conditions including sunburn, eczema and dry or inflamed skin. Its anti-inflammatory properties are particularly noteworthy. The oil also helps seal moisture into the skin, making it a beneficial ingredient in long-lasting emollients. It is therefore a good choice for those whose skin loses moisture easily or to protect against the elements in harsh climates (whether icy or particularly hot and dry).

As well as its omega 3 content, the oil contains omegas 6 and 9 essential fatty acids. It is also rich in vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6 and E, and the minerals potassium, lecithin, magnesium and zinc. 

COMMON USES: Sun creams, lotions, skin creams and conditioners, lip salves, hair products; prevention of scarring and stretch marks; as a base in massage blends (usually mixed with another carrier to increase lightness and absorption).

PRECAUTIONS: A patch test is recommended. This product can not be guaranteed from traces of nuts or other allergens.
