Organic Flax Seed Oil
Add to Personalized Shopping List

Organic flax seeds are a rich source of the essential fatty acids Alpha-Linolenic Acid and Linoleic Acid. The human body cannot produce essential fatty acids and instead must obtain them from external sources.

Organic Flax Seed Oil is primarily polyunsaturated. Its unique fatty acid composition makes it especially well suited for inclusion in formulations intended for maturing, dry, itchy, damaged or problem skin. It makes a nourishing and soothing addition to creams, lotions, salve and balm formulations.

Customer Testimonial

"Your prices are better on just about everything I need (not everything, but most), and I love that there is no minimum order. I also love the resource of being able to e-mail you and ask questions about the best way to use your products. I'd like to expand into offering all natural body care stuff, but sometimes I have questions. I've been telling anybody who could benefit about this site - it's amazing. Just keep up the good work."
