You are in the car and lean over to grab something. When you lean back to your seat, you get a whiff of something, and it's not pleasant. It's like a musty, sweaty or sharp smell. Where is it coming f...

This nutrient-rich oil is derived from the crushing and pressing of grape seeds. It is chock full of antioxidants and oligomeric proanthocyanidin complexes (OPCs).

Grapeseed Oil is light and is quickly absorbed and utilized by the hair, so it is a great alternative for people with sensitive skin. It can help prevent breakage and smooth the hair’s cuticle, re-balance the scalp’s sebum and encourage growth and length retention. So it has MAJOR benefits for your hair as a carrier oil for anti-dandruff remedies and conditioning mixes.

For soft, sheeny, supple hair, pour some grapeseed oil into a plastic bag and steep in hot water until it’s very warm (not hot) and apply to your hair and scalp. Cover and leave it on for 20 minutes, then shampoo and rinse out. This is a great treatment to do every 2 weeks. It will moisturize your hair and scalp, reducing split ends, tangles and brittleness and breakage.

Use it on your ends daily to help guard against split ends.


The best properties of grapeseed oil for your skin include anti-aging, suppleness, and evening out of your skin tone (vitamin C active). It is moisturizing for most skin types, but if you have oily skin, please steer clear. It is a very inexpensive way to keep your skin soft.

To use it as a moisturizer, just rub plain grapeseed oil on your skin once or twice per day. Another option is to put a few drops into your skin creams to enhance it. It will leave your skin moisturized all day.


Grapeseed oil rivals vitamin C in the potential for evening out your skin tone. Vitamin C serums are popular for getting a clear, even skin tone. Instead of using a pricey serum, just apply plain grapeseed oil on your face before bed. If you have dry skin, you should also use it in the morning, preferably just as you exit a warm shower.
