Fresh-Pressed Oils and Why You Need Them in Your Life

We love oils at Flora (hello, omegas!), but it’s not all about the ones you ingest. The oils you use topically can radically change your life, too. In fact, there are some pretty unexpected ways fresh-pressed oils can help you take health and beauty to the next level.

Each oil is unique in its ability, capable of helping with everything from skin care to hair growth to cell health.

Which one is missing from your wellness and beauty regimen? Find out how our cold-pressed organic oils help and heal:

Cold-Pressed Almond Oil

Our unique Almond Oil (US), cold-pressed from Spanish almonds, works miracles as a moisturizing oil for your body and face. Working a small amount of Almond Oil into the skin will help retain moisture and elasticity. It can also help soothe any dryness or irritation. Acne acting up? Many people find oil cleansing helps to dissolve or thin sebum resulting in clearer skin.

Flax Seed Oil

The high omega content of our Flax Seed Oil (US/CA) does wonders for your body and brain when ingested. It’s great taken when mixed into salad dressings or even a daily dose via spoon for those on the go. Flax also has some interesting benefits for your skin. High quantities of omega-3 have been found to help reduce inflammation when used topically. This can help with psoriasis, eczema, and puffiness of the skin, making it your savior after a sleepless night. Looking for a non-toxic way to remove makeup? A little oil on a cotton pad does wonders.

Pumpkin Oil

Studies have shown that ingesting just a small amount of pumpkin oil is basically magic when it comes to helping maintain your hair’s luster and promote growth. Pumpkin oil can also be used topically in a host of non-toxic, organic DIY beauty treatments. One of our favorite treatments takes care of the scalp, one of the most ignored facets of our beauty regimen. We love the two-ingredient DIY recipe from celebrity yoga instructor and natural beauty guru Bianca Cheah, featuring Flora Pumpkin Oil (US/CA) and sea salt to help rid the scalp of dead skin and product build-up to help promote hair growth.
