Details

For skin, Almond oil is a wonderful treatment. It is compatible with all skin types. You can moisturize with almond oil to ease rashes and chapped lips and skin. It soothes inflamed skin, moisturizes and provides a healthy glow when used regularly.

Sweet almond oil is one of the most well-known and commonly used carrier oils. With its light, non greasy weight and high fatty acid content that can nourish and soothe skin, sweet almond oil is popular as a massage oil and bath additive.

Almond Oil is rich in monounsaturated fat, it contains 66% monounsaturated oleic acid, an omega-9 fat. It also contains 25% omega-6 polyunsaturated essential fatty acid. Along with a nutty taste, the oil has minimal odour and can also be substituted for olive oil.

By replacing 1/4 to 1/2 cup of the oil or butter in baked dishes with cold pressed almond oil, will add a slightly nutty flavor to the dish, and it is best if the baked dish has complementary flavors. Almond oil can be drizzled over salads or over an almond crusted fish.

In our commitment to health and the consumer, we do not stop at the manufacturing and distribution of the highest quality certified organic, fresh unrefined oils. We also aim to educate the user about fats and oils and where possible, shed light on controversial nutritional issues.

John Finnegan (Author of The Facts about Fats) says: - "Good quality oils need to be expellor-pressed at temperatures below 45 degrees C and not solvent extracted. They should not be subjected to high heat temperatures, to deodourising, bleaching, alkali refining or winterising processes. They need to be produced by light and oxygen excluding methods, bottled in containers that prevent the further exposure to light which causes rancidity and where possible, they should be produced from organically grown seed".

Education - The right oil for the right result Melrose have oils for specific needs and uses. For instance, it is not generally known that it is only in Extra Virgin and Virgin Olive Oil that the antioxidant polyphenols and squalane are present. In "Pure" and "Light" Olive oil, these natural ingredients have been removed in the refining process.

Complete food - More flavour Melrose Fresh Unrefined Oils have a more distinct flavour and aroma, just like any other whole food which has not been denatured or processed. If you are used to denatured, refined oils, it may take some time to become accustomed to Fresh Unrefined Oils. Besides the nutritional benefits, unrefined oils will impart extra aroma and flavour.
