As it is in some of the recipes on this blog, here are some different uses of the grape seed oil.
In the kitchen, you can use it in the homemade Nutella recipe for example.
There is some debate about its culinary virtues regarding health. Some say it has plenty, others say it’s just a hoax … I have not done any study and therefore can hardly position myself on it (I might dig further if you’re interested).
For the skin, it is appreciated for its regenerative and restructuring properties. Antioxidant, emollient, sebum-regulating, it is a dry oil that is ideal for mature and damaged skin, for oily skin or for a massage oil. It can very well be used pure or accompanied by essential oils of your choice, depending on your skin type.
The grape seed oil nourishes the hair fiber. It is ideal for thin, dry and damaged hair. You can for example use it in your Rhassoul shampoo, or directly on your hair if it is really dry.
NB: I am nor a scientist, nor a cosmetic pro, nor a cook. As the other articles in this blog, it is just about my research and personal experience.
