Walnut Oil Organic (Oshadhi) 30ml

Walnut OilWalnut Oil Organic


Walnut Oil is an excellent emollient with good moisturising properties for dry or ageing skin. it is well absorbed, high in linoleic acid and helps to regenerate, tone and moisturise damaged or dry skin. A good 'balancing' oil.

Moisturising and softening. An ideal massage oil that especially benefits mature skin.

Uses of Walnut Oil


Walnut oil is a nut oil obtained from walnuts. Depending on the varieties of walnuts, there are some types of walnut oils. It is a good source of omega – 3 fatty acids, which are essential fatty acids. So the body needs to get them from the diet. Walnut oil has a nutty flavour and a light aroma. Walnut oil makes a nice base oil ( carrier oil ) for massage and aromatherapy uses. It is used as a cosmetic ingredient in many skin care products. This oil has immense nutritional value and is safe to be taken in diet.

Walnut oil for Healthier skin


Walnut oil can be applied neat ( undiluted ) on the skin. Regular application of a small amount of walnut oil can provide the following health benefits for skin.

  • Reduces the signs of ageing, predominantly wrinkles - Apply it on wrinkle-prone skin and massage the skin in various circular motions. It is actually very good for eye wrinkles where the skin is very thin and easily prone to fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Protects the skin from free radical damage – If you are regularly applying walnut oil to the skin, many antioxidant compounds get stored in the fat layer under the skin. There they provide antioxidant power as and when needed.
  • Relieves fungal infections of skin – Apply walnut oil to fungal infections like ringworm, athlete’s foot and candidiasis. One can mix it with coconut oil, or oil of oregano which are powerful anti-fungal themselves.

Walnut oil for Hair


  • Walnut oil for HairWalnut oil can be applied directly to hair to make it smooth and glossy - However, one can get greater health benefits by taking walnut oil in the diet. Why? Well, that’s because walnut oil is also very high in omega – 6 fatty acids ( linoleic acid ). Omega – 6 acts as a factor in hair growth. A deficiency of omega-6 may lead to stunted hair growth.
  • Walnut oil can be added to egg yolk to create a protein enriching hair treatment - Add a few drops of walnut oil to egg yolks. The nutrients in egg yolks are better absorbed in the scalp skin in the presence of healthy fatty acids from walnut oil. This penetrates deep into the hair follicles and boosts the protein content of hair shafts. Our hair is primarily made up of protein and water, so this treatment helps a lot.

Walnut oil massage


A simple massage with walnut oil relieves arthritic pain, muscular pain ( like that from muscle knots ) and any general pain sensation relieves. This oil is a natural analgesic and when applied topically, it reduce pain sensation.

Rose Hip Seed Carrier OilAbout Carrier Oils


Carrier oils are a massively important feature of an aromatherapy treatment.

The correct and thoughtful use of carrier oils (also known as base oils, or vegetable oils) in therapeutic massage adds a huge additional dimension to the benefit of the treatment.

Despite this, carrier oils in aromatherapy are sometimes seen simply as the vehicle for the essential oils to be introduced onto the skin. Hence the use of the word 'carrier oil'.

If you want to convince yourself about the benefit for health and well-being that vegetable oils can provide in their own right, try self-massage with warm Sesame oil every day for a week before a bath or shower, and see what difference you notice. (This is a daily prescription for good health that is recommended by Maharishi AyurVeda, Ayurveda being the world's oldest system of natural health care, and is said to prevent all manner of ailments, to balance the system, and restore health and vitality.)

Why are Carrier Oils Important?


Vegetable oils are largely composed of fatty acids, which are very important to the body, not only because they are an important source of energy, but also because they are a component in the building and maintenance of healthy cells.

Many vegetable oils contain essential fatty acids (EFAs). These cannot be produced by the body yet they are a requirement for life and health. Deficiency of EFAs can lead to a number of ailments, including dry and flaky skin, and raised cholesterol.

Create your own Carrier Oil Blends Different oils can be suitable for different skin types. Try creating your own vegetable oil blends. For example with wheat germ, sunflower, sesame and hazelnut; or add 10% of avocado oil to sweet almond to create a carrier oil for dry skin.
