Pomegranate oil.......pomegranates are one of nature's superfoods and not only are the well known health benefits super amazing, but the beautiful ruby red seeds taste super delicious too - it is one of my favourite fruits.
So it will probably come as no surprise that the oil, which is cold pressed from the seeds, is packed full of health benefits too.......especially for your skin.
Just like the fruit, the oil has a high content of antioxidants which fight off free radicals which helps keep your skin looking radiant and young.......so pomegranate seed oil is often included in anti-ageing lotions and potions.
I love this magical oil and I try to include it in all my facial serums and creams. It penetrates the skin easily and deeply and is very hydrating and moisturising. It makes my skin feel firmer and seems to improve the texture...... and I just love the idea of putting a superfood on my face.
It is a good oil to use for sports and therapeutic massage. Its anti-inflammatory properties help reduce inflammation and generally ease aches and pains........great for treating my yoga retreat clients who often have aching muscles in the middle of the week!

A yellowish golden colour with medium viscosity and a unique nutty almost musky aroma.
