Grapeseed Oil: Uses, Benefits, and Blends

Grapeseed Oil is one of the most beloved carrier oils for massage because of its slippy, easy-to-use texture. It is nourishing and conditioning to the skin, hair, and nails.

Grapeseed Oil Product Details

As you know, we take sustainability extremely seriously when sourcing our oils. Since Grapeseed Oil is a byproduct of the wine-making process, as long as you continue to sip the odd glass of vino,  we should be all OK! 

After the fruit pulp has been mashed down, grape seeds are left behind. Whilst new vines can be propagated from seeds, for the most part, it is a very slow process, so cuttings are the usual choice. It’s wonderful that the beauty and health industries have found so many ways to use an otherwise obsolete product. 

There is some controversy over Grapeseed Oil because it can be extracted fairly cheaply by solvent extraction. However this is an intrusive process, and the hexane solvent residue emitted into the atmosphere is classed as an air pollutant. At VINEVIDA we only stock cold-pressed Grapeseed Oil which uses no chemicals and simply creates a lovely pure oil. 

Nutritionally, Grapeseed Oil has tremendous potential for heart care in particular but when used topically, its best effects are for skin conditioning and wound healing. Compared to other carrier oils,  Grapeseed does not have a very strong shelf life so, if added to home treatments, is best used in smaller dilutions. 

Add it to creams and lotions, lip balms, shampoos, masques, and hair conditioners. Grapeseed acts a little like a physician botanical seeming to support and increase other botanicals’ healing effects. 

Grapeseed Oil Benefits: For Face, Skin, and Hair

Grapeseed Oil for Face

Grapeseed Oil is particularly good for oilier skins that may not respond well to heavier oils such as Rosehip or Avocado. It is non-comedogenic so it won’t block pores, but is extremely thin and absorbs easily without adding sheen to the complexion.

Bursting with omega chain acids and vitamin E it is suited to treatments for eczema, psoriasis, scars, and acne. It is also restorative, protecting against premature aging and hair loss.  Grapeseed Oil evens out skin tone and reduces hyperpigmentation.

Grapeseed Oil for Skin

Grapeseed Oil’s rich supply of polyphenols makes it fabulous for skin conditioning and wound healing.

Grapeseed Oil for Hair

Grapeseed Oil softens and smoothes the hair and is reputed to promote hair growth when used regularly for scalp massage.

Grapeseed Oil Uses: For Wholesale Purposes

Grapeseed Oil Uses for Aromatherapists 

Grapeseed Oil Aromatherapy

Clearly, Grapeseed Oil will always be one of the first choices for massage - not only for its easy slip but also for the properties of other botanicals very well, and as such makes a wonderful base for maceration and making lipophilic extracts. 

Using Grapeseed Oil to Enhance Botanical Preparations

One such reason to do this is to leech healing properties from plants that would not otherwise produce an oil, or that do so but at a much higher cost than to make it effective. Consider how you could add Melissa, Jasmine or Rose to a blend, integrate even more properties to a product, supplementing just a drop or two of the essential oil. 

Likewise, only oily constituents and relatively small molecules pass through distillation. Boswellic acid, in Frankincense Essential Oil, for example, or the cannabinoids from cannabis plants do not find their way into Essential Oils.  Macerations have different chemical compositions to essential oils.

Calendula Officinalis, for example, is wonderful for skin conditions like eczema and donates well and cheaply to macerations made with fixed oils such as Grapeseed Oil.

How to Use Grapeseed Oil to Make a Botanical Maceration

The best practice is to cut your blooms or herbs and then let them dry for a week or so. Moisture in oils can make them go rancid. 

Place half of your dried plant matter into a double boiler and cover it with Grapeseed Oil or similar. 

Gently heat for at least an hour.

Run the concoction through a coffee filter (or press through a sieve or cafetiere) to separate off the oil from the botanical. 

Return the infused Grapeseed Oil to the double boiler, repeating the process with the other half of the botanical matter. 

Strain off, this time using a double filter paper to ensure a pure solution and leave it to cool. 

Decant into sterilized containers and label carefully.

Oatmeal, Milk, and Honey Soap Recipe

This soothing soap is lovely for sunburned or winter-chapped skin.

Method of Preparation: 

Heat the Lye and water separately from the Oils.

When you have reached 125 degrees c temperatures, combine the lye/water mixture and oils and stir well. 

Bring the mixture to a trace as above and add in the dry oats and warmed honey. 

Mix the dried milk into a runny paste with a little oil then add to the mix. You may find the mixture turns slightly Yellow or Orange because of the milk. Don’t panic, it will lighten up later. When everything is combined, pour into your molds and leave to cool and set for 24 hours. Unmold or cut into smaller bars if you used a large mold, then leave to cure for 3-4 weeks.

Precautions: No specific contraindications.
