Safflower Products

Safflower Oil is also known as Thistle Oil and is derived from the seeds of the plant. Safflower is native to arid environments having seasonal rain. It grows a deep taproot which enables it to thrive in drought conditions.

Safflower oil is rich in omega 3 and 6 fatty acids which make up to 80% of the content of the oil. Omega 6 is particularly good for oily skin, enlarged pores and other skin conditions. It blends well with other oils and it is recommended to blend it with softer oils such as Jojoba, Apricot Kernel or Sweet Almond for use in natural skin care.

Indigo Herbs is delighted to offer extremely high quality, cold pressed Safflower Oil - ideal for use on oily skin.

Using Aromatherapy in your daily routine is simple, easy and can be enormously beneficial. Pure neat essential oils can be evaporated into the environment and inhaled while products that have already been diluted in an oil can be applied straight to the skin. There are lots of different ways to utilize the pure neat essential oils; these can be made into a room spray or used in an an essential oil burner/ vaporizer.

This is a lovely way to perfume an environment and essential oils are very good at affecting the mood, mind and emotions when evaporated into the air. Adding essential oils to your bath is the best way to ensure the oils are absorbed through the pores of the skin while also inhaling the vapors; maximum benefit can then be had whilst enjoying a soak. Additionally the neat oils can be diluted into a carrier medium. This can be a cream, body butter, face cream, vegetable body oil and bath salts to name a few. For full instructions go to our How to use Aromatherapy page.

Safflower Oil can be used as a light, non-greasy carrier oil for an aromatherapy massage or bath. Just choose your favourite essential oils, dilute and use for a regenerating and replenishing massage or relaxing and nurturing bath.

Manufacture Process

Indigo Herbs Safflower Seed Oil is extracted using the “cold pressing” method. Plants and plant parts are placed in a spike-filled container and slowly punctured. The cold press machines also utilise centrifugal force to help separate the oil from the rest of the plant pulp and liquid. The puncturing and spinning process releases the oils, which are then collected and bottled resulting in 100% pure, cold pressed oil.
