LINSEED / FLAXSEED OIL

Johanna Budwig, a German biochemist, developed the Budwig diet in the 1950s. The diet consists of eating Flaxseed oil mixed with cottage cheese and milk. She thought that it made omega-3 fatty acids more available to body cells. She also believed that the oil could stop cancers from growing. Can be easily used both internally and externally: directly on the skin, hair and nails.

Cold Press Linseed oil (Linum Usitatissimum) is used as an additive to body oils, intended for oily, cracked skin prone to inflammation. Applied on the skin has an anti-inflammatory, softening and anti-itch effect; it stimulates regeneration processes of dermis and epidermis, softens scabs, accelerates healing of burns, decubitus ulcers, ulcers, abscesses. It works against the creation of blackheads. Excellent for skin and lip care.

The main components of flaxseed oil are triglycerides of unsaturated fatty acids: linoleic, alpha-linolenic and oleic and saturated: palmitic and stearic. Thanks to cold pressing, linseed oil, apart from fatty acid triglycerides, also contains biologically active ingredients such as vitamin E (the so-called “youth vitamin”), β-carotene, lutein and plastochromanol-8.
