Technically a seed, walnuts have a distinctive nutty flavour, and walnut oil makes a great addition to salad dressings, smoothies and especially baking. Primal cure walnut oil is 100% acquired by cold pressed methods, then filtered and left unroasted. Walnut oil has a high level of linoleic acid (omega-6), a powerful antioxidant that has benefits in the body and on the hair and skin.
As with other nut and seed-based oils, walnut oil is best used at room temperature in dressings, smoothies and baking, rather than as a cooking oil.
Walnut oil makes an excellent massage oil, either on its own, or as a carrier oil to blend with other oils. Benefits for the skin include aiding inflammatory-based skin complaints such as eczema, as the anti-inflammatory properties help counter inflammation.
Walnut oil is also a significant source of alpha-linoleic acid (omega-3), which helps creates a barrier on your skin to retain moisture. The benefits of omega-3 and 6 also have benefits for your hair, including retaining moisture in your hair and improving its elasticity.
- Massage into your scalp, wrap your hair in a towel and leave for 30 minutes or overnight and wash and style as normal

- Use as a massage oil, either on its own, or blended with your favourite essential oils
