Benefits of 100% cold-pressed grapeseed oil

I have chosen Grapeseed oil as the carrier/base oil in The Massage House blends due to its unique and comprehensive health benefits.  It is extracted from seeds of grapes.

The light and non-greasy texture makes Grapeseed an ideal oil for massage therapists as it warms quickly providing a gliding movement and is easily absorbed by the skin.

Here are some of the health benefits associated with Grapessed oil.

  • anti-inflammatory
  • anti-oxidant
  • anti-histamine
  • anti-aging
  • anti-allergic
  • anti-microbial

This means that it could be suitable for:

  • arthritis
  • acne
  • age spots
  • dandruff
  • diabetes
  • dermatitis
  • hypertension
  • haemorrhoids
  • PMT
  • macular degeneration
  • sunburn
  • stretch marks
  • oedema
  • bruising
  • varicose veins.

Its free radical activity can boost the immune system and therefore prevent degenerative diseases.

Grapeseed oil is also available in capsules.  Please always consult a practitioner/therapist.
