Organic Perilla Seed Oil


Perilla seed oil is a new oil for us here. I really love the texture and smell of this oil. It has a kind of rich oily-herbal-green-nutty aroma. Perilla is actually a member of the mint family and is cultivated extensively in Japan for a wide variety of uses from medicine, culinary and for cosmetic purposes.The oil is rich in Alpha-Linoleic Acid and has been well documented for it’s effectiveness against acne. Perilla seed oil is anti allergenic, antiseptic, anti inflammative and possesses powerful anti oxidant properties. It’s linoleic acid content also acts as a barrier to protect the skin and hair against water loss thus helping retain moisture. Perilla seed oil is soothing and calming, and will help provide protection for mature ageing skin. Can be used in a variety of applications including cellulite treatments, acne treatments, therapeutic massage blends, eczema relief, for stretch mark prevention, in skin serums, hair care, and various therapeutic salves. LOVE!
