Color: light green
Contains: a small amount of vitamin E Uses: a safe, neutral and very inexpensive oil; it is an excellent carrier for any essential oil; has good skin penetration. Base: use alone 100%, with a little wheatgerm oil, or with 10-20% borage oil. Combines well with more powerful and expensive carriers, which makes it an excellent medium for dilution. It can be used in equal quantities as a moderator for a strongly scented carrier (such as olive oil) or an astringent (such as hazelnut) oil.
Grapeseed Oil ( Vitis vinifera ) is an ecologically sound product that is made from the seeds of grapes after the wine is pressed. Grapeseed oil is high in vitamin E and is 76% essential fatty acid, linoleic acid (also known as Omega 6). It is low in saturated fat, contains natural chlorophyll and valuable antioxidants (known as proanthocyninidins), and has a good shelf life. Very rich in vitamins, minerals and linoleic acid. It's a light and penetrating oil for massage. It’s also used in lotions, balms, creams, and soap. The skin absorbs it easily; it has no perceptible odor. Since it is slightly astringent, it tightens and tones the skin. Will not aggravate acne. This is one oil that is nearly impossible to extract through cold pressure due to its very low oil yield.
