Description

Origin: Western Canadian Prairies and United States.

Botanical Name: Linum usitatissimum

Extraction method: Cold Pressed [The cold pressed extraction method yields a higher quality oil (more vitamins, minerals etc) compared to extraction methods that use chemicals or heat.]

Color: Light orange to brownish

Aroma: Flaxseed oil smells like freshly melted butter

Benefits: Flaxseed oil nourishes the skin membranes by supplying our skin with natural Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids are essential for the production of prostaglandins in the skin and this helps reduce inflammation and promote healing. This helps to soothe and heal such skin conditions as psoriasis, eczema, acne and sunburn. It is also great for dry skin and oily skin as the fatty acids help prevents the pores from clogging by thinning the sebum which is the cause of clogged pores.

Viscosity: Typical and characteristic of carrier oils

Common Uses: Flaxseed oil is used in foods and in cosmetics. It is a good moisturizer and can also help seal moisture into the skin, making it a great ingredient to have in lotions and in soaps.

Plant / Oil History: Flax was originally cultivated in Babylon for clothing at around 3, 000 B.C. At 650 B.C. in Greece, Hippocrates wrote about using flax for abdominal pain.

Plant / Oil Description: Flax plants can range in their height from 30 to 100 cm (12 to 40 in). They have alternating, narrow, lance shaped leaves. The flowers within the cultivated flax plant varieties range from deep to pale blue. Garden varieties can be white, red, pink or violet.

Used this oil for a soap recipe. Read that flax seed helps sooth sensitive or irritated skin. I made simple soap from this oil, coconut, and olive that turned out beautifully without any coloring or EOs. Looking forward to giving the soap a try!

Rating:
I use this for my skin. It has omega fatty acids 3 and 6. It is a light oil, not greasy at all. It does have an odor, but all unrefined flax seed oil does. It can easily be masked with essential oil.
