PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A clear, pale yellow to dark yellow oil with a noticeable aroma of walnut that is cold pressed from ripe, organic walnuts.
  • Use 1% to 100%. However, the higher the percentage that is used, the more noticeable the nutty smell will be.
  • Oil soluble so cannot be used in water only products. It can be used in small amounts in water based gels that will hold it in suspension.
  • Heat stable so can be used in Stage 1 (fat stage) when making creams and lotions.
Combine Walnut Oil with Sesame Oil and Myrrh Essential Oil for a nail and cuticle oil.
 
It is excellent as a scalp rub, especially when combined with Chickweed Oil and Marshmallow Root Oil.

HOW TO USE IT

Skin Care
  • Walnut Oil is a good emollient that does not feel greasy on the skin and is rich in Omega 6 and Omega 9 Essential Fatty Acids which both promote moisture retention in the skin, which can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It’s ideal to use in creams and serums for mature and sensitive skin types.
  • It is an excellent choice for formulating products for acne prone skin. It absorbs well into the skin.
  • It softens skin keeping it more flexible and youthful looking.
  • It has a dry skin feeling which makes heavier oils feel lighter which then gives you more oils to choose from when blending oils.
Hair Care
  • It is effective at moisturising and conditioning the hair shaft giving it a softer texture without feeling sticky.
  • Walnut Oil also conditions the scalp helping to maintain healthy hair.

    Lovely oil!

    I love this oil for my ageing but sensitive skin. Since using this oil, my skin has had no breakouts at all and is looking really happy and healthy, I really love it!
