Healthy oils are not just for cooking or to put in your salad. They contain high levels of antioxidant vitamins that can soften, hydrate, and protect your skin and nails. Here are six natural oils that make your skin feel great, and have many other uses as well! A few of these are favorites of mine!
Organic Rosehip Seed Oil
Instanatural is one of my favorite brands. I love their products, and their Rosehip Seed Oil does not disappoint!
InstaNatural – InstaNatural Organic Rosehip Seed Oil, 4 Fluid Ounce – $23.95, 5.48 shipping – Available at Amazon.com Marketplace
Argan Oil comes from nuts of a tree found in southwestern Morocco. They are harvested by the Berber community, roasted and pressed to extract the oil. It contains high levels of vitamin E and has 80% unsaturated fatty acids making it more resistant to oxidation. It aids in healing scars, has anti-inflammatory, sun protection and disinfectant properties. I love Argan oil!
Coconut Oil is a favorite of mine. It is great for dry skin, and has many uses!
Puritan’s Pride – Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil-16 oz Oil – $11.99, Free shipping – Available at Puritans Pride
A very rich oil. Often used for massages, sesame oil is high in vitamin E and is great for damaged, dry or irritated skin, hair and nails.
Jojoba oil is from a shrub native to parts of Arizona, California and Mexico. Rich in Vitamin E, it can be used on the skin, hair and for nail care. It is classified as a fungicide and can be used to protect nails against infections.
Sweet Almond Oil
Between 36-60% of the kernel of an almond is oil. It is high in omega 6 and omega 9 fatty acids. It is great for use as a massage oil, for stretch marks and dry skin.
