Posted on: October 29, 2011


Grapeseed Oil

Botanical Name: Vitus vinifera
Aroma: Light. Slightly Nutty and Sweet.
Viscosity: Thin.
Absorption/Feel: Leaves a Glossy Film on the Skin.
Color: Virtually Clear. Has a Virtually Unnoticeable Tinge of Yellow/Green.
Shelf Life: 6-12 Months.
Notes: Grapeseed Oils pressed from specific grape varieties including chardonnay and riesling grapes are available. In general, however, Grapeseed Oil tends to be solvent extracted. Be sure to check the method of extraction for the oil that you purchase.
Grapeseed Oil is commonly used in aromatherapy as it is a fairly all-purpose oil and can be used in a wide array of applications ranging from massage to skin care. From a nutrititive standpoint, the most noteworthy aspect of Grapeseed Oil is its content of the essential fatty acid, linoleic acid. Grapeseed Oil, however, has a relatively short shelf life.
