This ‘wonder oil’ is cold pressed from both the berries and seeds of the deciduous seabuckthorn tree that originates in the Himalayan regions. Its medicinal properties have been recognised and utilized for centuries in Traditional Chinese Medicine but have been less well known in the west until relatively recently.

Sea Buckthorn Oil
Our Sea Buckthorne from Siberian Russia is of the highest quality. From the Sea Buckthorn decidious tree, scientists believe the hardy tree originates from the Himalayan regions.
Sea buckthorn is suitable for all skin types. It is safe to use neat on the skin, though the rich colour makes this not ideal as it will discolour the skin. It is best used as part of a blend with other carrier oils - ideal candidates being camellia and coconut whose lightness combines beautifully.
What makes Sea Buckthorn sensational is the unbelievable abundance of health promoting bioactive components which make up its composition.
Sea Buckthorn has 6 different fat soluable vitamins, 22 fatty acids, 42 kinds of lipids and 36 kinds of flavanoids. It is the richest natural source of Vitmain A (Beta Carotene) and Omega 7. This abundance of rich ingredients makes it a skincare neccesity.
The oil, packed full of vitamins and hundreds of other bioactive components, is now renowned for its medicinal and anti-aging properties. Just some of the compounds within the oil include: vitamins A, C, E, F, K and B, essential fatty acids omega 3, omega 6, omega 9 and the rarer omega 7s (palmitoleic and vaccenic), folic acid, carotenoids, flavonoids, biotin and various trace minerals.
Seabuckthorn is attributed with being nature’s most abundant source of omega 7.
Just a small ratio of this oil (such as 1 to 2%) added to other carrier oils, can help inject massage blends with extra healing powers. Another reason it is best to blend the oil is that its deep orange tone can cause a slight, temporary discoloration of the skin if used neat. The oil is suitable for all skin types. The oil’s therapeutic benefits for skin include: moisturizing, rejuvenating and energizing at the cellular level, stimulating circulation, alleviating inflammation associated with skin disorders and speeding the healing of wounds.
Other benefits attributed to the oil include: alleviating menopausal symptoms, regulating the mucous membranes (the respiratory, urinary and digestive tracts) which form an important part of the innate immune system, decreasing bad cholesterol, increasing good cholesterol and generally being good for circulation and heart health.
Common use: Anti-wrinkle products, body butters, skin repair, on scars and eczema; in massage blends.

Due to the deep natural colour of this oil it is best used as part of a blend, although there are no contra-indications to using neat it may cause colouration to the skin which may take a few days to disappear if used neat. Normally used in a blend up to 10% to avoid the colouration but receive the benefits of this amazing oil.
