Chickweed Oil (Organic)

Buy Chickweed Oil Organic / Natural benefits uses UK

INCI Name

ORG N
Stellaria media, Helianthus annuus hybrid oil, Rosmarinus officinalis

Organic fresh UK-grown chickweed herbs hot macerated in High Oleic (omega 9) Content Sunflower Oil (origin: Holland) with 0.1% Rosemary Antioxidant. This Macerated oil is made by hot-maceration of the fresh aerial parts of the herb. If macerated in High-Oleic Content Sunflower Oil, then Chickweed Oil will keep for 1.5-2 years.

Our Chickweed Oil is one of a our range of macerated oils that is especially produced for us by a grower in the Welsh Borders, where he has been growing herbs organically for 25 years. We are very happy with the good quality. After I (Kolbjorn) visited their farm personally, I came away very impressed with what they do. All the oils are macerated in certified organic high oleic content sunflower oil.

An annual herb, Chickweed grows 30-35cm high; its sprawling, tangled stems reach up to 60cm in length. From each stem node grows pairs of oval leaves that vary in size. It has white flowers throughout the year. Chickens and many other birds love chickweed, and eat both the plants and the seeds, which is how it gets its name.

NB You need to watch out after some time for botanical material collecting at the bottom of the container, so you need to check the oils and filter if necessary before using them/or adding them to products.

Skin Care

Chickweed was praised by most medieval herbalists as an excellent anti-inflammatory medicinal herb. It is said to have been taken to North America by the Puritan immigrants. It is also found in Central and South America. Chickweed Poultices are still used to combat rheumatism by people who continue to use folk remedies and is widely used in Anti-Itching Creams by herbalists. It has cooling, soothing properties that relieves itching, promotes healing and is anti-rheumatic.

Properties of the whole Chickweed plant are that it is: anti-inflammatory; anti-rheumatic; astringent (causes contraction of tissue, restraining discharges); demulcent (soothes irritated, inflamed or injured surfaces); depurative (eliminates toxins and purifies the system, especially the blood); discutient (disperses morbid matter); diuretic (tending to increase the discharge of urine); febrifuge (reduces fever, also called refrigerant) and vulnerary (used in the healing and treatment of wounds).

Natural Vitamin and Mineral Content

Refer also to the Oil that the Comfrey plant is macerated in. Vitamin content of the actual herb: Vitamin A 30mg/100g; Thiamine (B1) 0.02mg/100g; Niacin 0.51mg/100g; Vitamin C 375mg/100g. (Note: The B and C Vitamins are water-soluble and wouldn’t be included in the Oil).

Contraindications

Chickweed has little to no-known levels of toxicity and is commonly considered to be completely safe. The only known danger is if too much of the fresh herb is eaten, this has been known to lead to severe diarrhoea.

Uses of Chickweed

  • Best known in its use for treating pruritus and itchy skin, it is also used to treat: eczema; acne; ulcers; haemorrhoids; varicose veins; psoriasis; inflammation; vaginitis; urticaria (hives, solar rashes, nettle rashes, etc); boils; wounds; abscesses; skin allergies; and other skin problems.
  • Add to all products that relieve or treat itchy skin conditions. In addition a cream, lotion or gel could be made using chickweed infusion instead of boiling water in the recipe.
  • Add up to 5% chickweed oil to a cooling gel for an itchy body.
  • Chickweed is a popular addition to herbal anti-itching creams, lotions and gels produced by herbalists.
  • It is also excellent for massage oil blends as it is a soft, smooth and long oil because of the base oil used (in Aromantic’s case, cold pressed high oleic-content sunflower oil). Also, knowing the properties of chickweed oil helps to use this oil as a prescription massage oil for treating the health conditions mentioned and at the same time it’s a massage oil that offers excellent lubrication.
  • Adding (high linoleic acid) sunflower oil to creams and lotions will make them lighter and drier. The high lecithin content (that is also soothing to the skin) of sunflower oil makes it a good choice for making creams and lotions as lecithin helps to emulsify in the same way that egg yolks, which contain 8-10% lecithin, help to emulsify oils and eggs to make mayonnaise. So, sunflower oil is therefore excellent for adding to vegetal/base emulsifier creams that do not have as strong an emulsifying bond as MF or VE emulsifiers, or to recipes that you find difficult to make thick enough, or where you find that the cream separates easily.
  • Due to the high oleic acid level (approx 80%) the oil gives very good lubrication and is very good when used in whole body massage.

Hair Care

Chickweed oil would be very good to use in hair packs, for itchy scalp conditions together with chickweed herb infusion, marshmallow oil and comfrey and chamomile products. You can also add aloe vera and sea-silk to that.

Related Products

For an excellent soothing, anti-inflammatory, anti-itching blend, combine chickweed oil with comfrey oil, marshmallow oil, bisabolol, chamomile CO2 extract, sea buckthorn CO2 extract, and vitamin A palmitate. These are all oil-soluble ingredients, so all you have to do is blend them together and bottle! To a cream, lotion or gel you can use the chickweed oil, as well as soothing raw materials such as aloe vera, cosmetic prebiotic and lechitin. You can also combine these with a chickweed infusion in products.
