Alright time to share the benefits of our last 4 amazing Raw Oils!! In the weeks past we shared with you a product in store that we are very proud of. Not just because it is ours, but because the process in which these oils are made leaves it with full integrity allowing the benefits and nutrients to be fully available in the body.
In a world with so many processed unhealthy options surrounding us isn’t it nice to feel good about what you put into your body 🙂 We sure think so.
Lets talk about our Cilantro Seed Oil, what a lovely warm, sweet and spicy aroma this oil gives off. Though let us start of by warning you that this oil should be taken in small amounts. Use it with caution and limit yourself to only approx. 3-6 drops per serving, it is powerful stuff!! This oils warming effects are useful in alleviating muscle aches and pains related to arthritis as well as pains and strains from exercise or everyday wear and tear. Also helpful with digestive issues, fatigue and exhaustion. Did you know that Coriander Oil is also known to be a powerful analgesic ( an agent that reduces pain)? The oil has been shown to be effective in treating headaches, tooth aches and other muscle, joint and body pains, how cool is that 🙂 One of our favourite properties this oil has to offer is that it is great as a deodorant, it can help clear bad breath as well as body odour, and it does so naturally. Big fans of that!! Mix it with a bit of water and swish it around in your mouth for a great mouth wash. There really are so many benefits that this oil can offer, it could be worth a try 🙂 Just remember to enjoy it sparingly!
Sunflower Seed Oil, this oil is great because its flavour can enhance so many recipes. We use it often and love it!! Marinating mushrooms in the oil along with a little seaweed and topping a raw pizza is fabulous!! Sunflower Seed Oil is the richest source of Vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant that helps protect and repair the delicate cells of the body. It is also packed with healthy fats and consumption has been shown to lower cholesterol levels when used on a regular basis. Sunflower Oil contains many great vitamins and minerals as well. This oil is not only fabulous for use when taken internally but has so many great benefits when applied directly to the skin as well. It has been used in skin care products for years and when applied directly to ones skin it creates a great moisturizer. It can soothe skin irritations and even help heal acne. We just love a product that has so many uses!!
Another of our Oils packed high in Vitamins and Minerals in our Pumpkin Seed Oil. Loads of Vitamins, A, C, E, D, K B6, B2, and B1. Pumpkin Seed Oil also contains nutrients like calcium, zinc, magnesium, potassium and iron. Like most all our other oils this one helps regulate cholesterol levels as well. It can also help reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke. High in zinc Pumpkin Seed Oil can help maintain prostate health. It helps reduce the symptoms of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia. Bladder problems have also seen vast improvements with the consumption of this oil. May be a good one to have in the kitchen for the important men in your life 🙂
Peanuts are delicious, a lot of people tell us they miss the tastes of peanut butter etc when they have changed their diet. The thing is we know that peanuts contain aflatoxins, which is basically a toxic mold. Not cool!! So we know its worth skipping out on! However we have found a great substitute in our Jungle Peanut Oil. Testing of our peanuts revealed absolutely no aflatoxins at all, hurray!! This yummy tasting oils contain a whopping 26% protein, oh ya we sure do get enough protein in our diets!!
Get creative with this oil, it has a great exotic nutty flavour that is fabulous in endless ways!! Try it in a sauce for your raw collard wraps, we can’t stop at just one when we have this dip on hand!!!!!!
So that about sums up our Oils, we really feel deeply about these oils and hope you will give a few a try. Its a great way to add variety to your raw kitchen while knowing you are consuming only the very best.
We’d love to know if you’ve tried any of our oils and if so which ones and what did you think?
