Description: Canola Organic Carrier Oil is a wonderfully balanced and nutritionally significant oil containing a healthy ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 essential fatty acids. Canola oil contains just 7% saturated fat compared to 15% for olive oil, 19% from peanut oil and 12% for sunflower oil. The seed is harvested from pods that are formed after those beautiful yellow flowers fade away. Canola is a very common oil with Massage therapists and manufacturers. Aromatherapists also use the oil, though they tend to gravitate to the Sweet Almond. It is also very affordable and suitable for all skin types.

Cautions: None Known.
Storage: It is recommended that cold-pressed carrier oils be kept in a cool dark place to maintain freshness and achieve maximum shelf life. If refrigerated, bring to room temperature before using.
