This fine oil comes from the pressed nuts of the Macadamia tree. It is a priceless delight for the skin and has proven itself to be one of the best regenerative oils available. It is high in monounsaturated fatty acids, and closely resembles sebum (the oil naturally produced by ones skin to help protect it). Macadamia oil is a fabulous, protective oil with a high absorption rate and has been successfully used as a healing oil for scars, sunburns, minor wounds and other irritations. Macadamia oil usage for skin and hair care: 1. Facial moisturizer. 2. Makeup Remover - You can also use macadamia oil to gently remove makeup, even stubborn mascara. Or if you like use half macadamia oil and half jojoba. You'll get great results with any of these options. 3. Eye serum - Because it absorbs so quickly, macadamia oil makes a moisturizing and reparative eye serum that you can even use under makeup. Use just the smallest amount and gently pat it around your eyes. 4. Facial cleanser - Not only will macadamia oil remove your makeup, it will gently but effectively cleanse your skin. 5. Body Moisturizer - use macadamia oil as an allover moisturizer when you get out of the shower. 6. Hair moisturizer - if you struggle with heat-damaged or dry hair, we would highly recommend using just a few drops of macadamia oil on the ends of your hair. It works wonders to soften and moisturize!

100% Natural, Raw, Pure, Hexane Free, Cold-Pressed and USDA Certified Organic Grapeseed Oil - 120 ml
Our 100% natural and USDA Certified Organic Grapeseed Oil is extracted from the seed of organic grapes using a cold processing method. This is high-grade edible oil. It has a beautiful pale yellow or light green appearance. It is refreshing, mild, non-toxic, non-greasy, and absorbed easily by the skin and considered safe for use by children and adults alike. It is excellent for pampering your little one or yourself. It makes an excellent massage oil, and moisturizer. What's more is that it is great for use by adults for its anti-aging benefits. Applying grapeseed oil around the eye area daily is known to reduce wrinkles and swelling. Furthermore, it is preferred in gourmet cooking because of its light taste that has been described as 'nutty'. There are two important elements in grapeseed oil, lineolic acid and the original pigment. Lineolic acid has several benefits for the skin. It can resist radical elements, aids anti-aging, and helps in the absorption of Vitamin C and Vitamin E. We simply added Vitamin E, and let the natural oil do the rest. Our vitamin E is derived from non-genetically modified soybeans. Grapeseed oil is rich in antioxidants; in addition, grapeseeds are plentiful, being a by-product of the wine making process. However organic grapes, and therefore organic grapeseeds, are a scare commodity around the world. As a result, organic grapeseed oil generally demands a significant price over the non-organic variety. *****UPDATE 04/23/2015 Due to the overwhelmed response from our loyal customers asking not to deodorizing the oil, we have stopped deodorizing the oil(even our deodorizing process was mechanical as opposed to chemical). The smell will be vary batch-by-batch and again it's not rancid, it just has very strong wine-like smell.

Gorgeous full-color food photography from Saveur photographer Laurie Smith.Awards: 2002 James Beard Award Winner "Mustards is universally loved by local residents and tourists alike for its smoky, tender, spicy baby back ribs; cornmeal-coated fried green tomatoes; tasty Asian-marinated flank steak; Chinese chicken noodle salad; and, of course, Mustards' always-crisp tangle of deep-fried onion threads. The enduring vitality of this place comes from the fact [that Cindy Pawlcyn] put all the dishes she loved on the menu: country dishes transformed by her sprightly offbeat style and sparkle." —FOOD LOVER'S GUIDE TO SAN FRANCISCOFrom the Hardcover edition.
