The Fascinating Story Behind Grapeseed Oil

by FabulousFrannie

The production of this oil is a truly fascinating and ecologically wonderful one. With origins in Italy, the seeds of Vitis vinifera (aka grapes) are cold pressed following the winemaking process. This means that waste is reduced as much as possible! The resulting oil is light yellow to green and has a light, slightly sweet, and nutty aroma. When stored properly, Grapeseed Oil has a shelf life of 6 months.

Grapeseed Oil is nutrient-rich, with high quantities of vitamin E and omega-6 fatty acids. It’s wonderful for massage and other topical applications as it’s lightweight and easily absorbed into skin. In addition to being beneficial in massage blends, Grapeseed can be used to create homemade lotions, balms, creams, and soaps. If you’re looking to help skin look firmer, this astringent oil can be great to add to homemade skincare products. This property and its high vitamin E content make it great for moisturizing skin, as well as reducing inflammation and the appearance of minor acne, wrinkles and scars.
