Chokeberry Seed Oil

Add to Personalized Shopping List

Chokeberries are the small fruits produced by the Aronia melanocarpa shrub. When consumed raw, the berries are extremely tart, thus lending to its chokeberry nickname. The Aronia melanocarpa shrub produces small chokeberries that are encased in a skin that is dark purple to black in hue. These astringent, flavorful, polyphenol-rich berries are commonly used in jams, syrups, wines, juices, tisanes, flavorings and other culinary applications.

Our Chokeberry Seed Oil is expeller pressed from dried chokeberry seeds. The oil is then carefully filtered to produce an amber oil that has a lovely texture and sweet, mild aroma. It is meticulously handled, stored and packaged to maintain the purity, freshness and beneficial properties of this extraordinary oil.


Uses:

Chokeberry Seed Oil absorbs rapidly and serves as a versatile, nutritive oil within a wide array of cosmetic, personal care and aromatherapy applications. It is a primarily polyunsaturated oil that helps to soften, soothe and protect the skin, leaving it feeling nourished and hydrated. It is well suited for sensitive, parched, dry, itchy, mature and problem skin types.

Customer Testimonial

"I just came home this morning from spending a week in Iceland. While there, I enjoyed time in their natural hot springs and experienced first hand the healing properties of their salt-water geothermal pools. I immediately went to FromNatureWithLove.com to see what salts you have to choose from. I knew that you'd have Dead Sea salts and hoped that if I bought them I'd get similar results. What I found astounded me (yet, it's FNWL, so I really shouldn't be surprised that you had it). You have Iceland's wonderful salts! As if I needed another reason to love you! Keep up the UNBELIEVABLY WONDERFUL work!"
