Mustard Seed Oil: It's Not Just for Veggie Dogs

Those of us that grew up on the Prairies will quickly recognize this plant - Yellow Mustard. Running through beautiful fields of this yellow flower, blooming in the late spring, brings back memories of my childhood. Not until I started researching locally available plants did I realize that this popular crop is great for more than just condiments.

Mustard Seed Oil oil has high levels of vitamin E, which helps improve skin health. It can help protect the skin against free radical damage from ultraviolet light and pollution, and can even help reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Additionally, these high levels of Vitamin E can act as a natural sunscreen during the summer months.

Mustard Seed has also been shown to help lighten freckles and sun damage making them a natural alternative for skin brightening products. Currently I'm making a Mustard Seed glycerite extract for use in the spring line up of Apotheca Borealis skin serum, which will be available for purchase by late March.

On a side note - Green Tree Beauty will be handling all my online orders from now on so I can focus 100% of my effort on creating beautiful, natural skin care for all of you. Jennilee is the owner of Green Tree Beauty. She's a highly skilled make-up artist and extremely helpful when it comes to educating her clientele with the latest information on natural skin care and make-up products. You and your orders will be in excellent hands!

Wishing you all a wonderful week end!
