Using Red Raspberry Seed oil

Posted on: November 14, 2016

I am careful to purchase Red Raspberry Seed oil that is cold processed and lightly filtered. This unrefined product is flushed with nitrogen and packed in nonreactive containers. When the Red Raspberry Oil arrives I immediately decant it into smaller glass bottles and refrigerate.

A relatively small amount of oil produced from those tiny seeds and it is full of good stuff for your skin. This is truly topical nutrition. It is 83% essential fatty acids. Essential fatty acids are not made in our bodies, it is essential to have them in the diet. About 50% omega 6, about 30% of omega 3 and about 10% omega 9. Specifically named lineoleic, linolenic, palmitic, etc… these essential fatty acids reduce the destruction of collagen, cell regenerative, anti-inflammatory. They are the precursors of other molecules and are important constituents in cell structure. Applying nutrition topically can direct the nutrition to a specific area, ingesting nutrition allows for metabolism and dispersion through the body.

Healthy skin is able to hold moisture. Skin needs to be nourished in order to be healthy. Topical application of nutritious oils does make a difference in the health of the skin.

Nutrious seed oils are a perfect vehicle for essential oil in skin care. You can make a beautiful regenerative skin serum by adding 25 drops of essential oils to one ounce of base oil. Choose from Helichrysum, Neroli, Carrot and Sandalwood make a wonderful combination. Cleanse the skin and prep with a few sprays of a hydrosol, this allows the few drops of serum to be thinly spread over the skin and absorbed.
