Linseed (Flaxseed) Oil is a nutrient-rich oil and one of the few carrier oils with a high content of the omega-3 fatty acid, alpha-linolenic acid, which is critical for healthy skin.
Linseed Oil (Linum Usitatissimum) is an ultra-moisturising oil with anti-inflammatory and healing properties that are beneficial for skin conditions arising from a dietary lack of Omega-3. The oil helps to restore flexibility, suppleness and softness to tired, overexposed or ageing skin. It is a particularly helpful carrier oil for clients whose skin is neglected or showing the effects of overwork or stress.
Linseed (Flaxseed) Oil has a slightly nutty odour that can compromise or even overwhelm if blended with more subtle aromatherapy essential oils such as Neroli. Care should therefore be taken when blending with this base oil.
