“Essential” means these fats are essential for human health and cannot be made by the body, so must be consumed daily in the diet, just like the vitamins and minerals in food.

Fushi’s UK grown Flaxseed oil is freshly made in small batches only from premium seeds from an English grown source, due to understanding the importance of preserving the potency of freshly produced, organic Flaxseed oil (not just for optimum effectiveness, but also for its great taste). Fushi’s Flaxseed oil has a smooth, mellow, creamy, nutty flavour which makes it a delight to consume. The seeds are freshly cold pressed at a temperature of 36C to preserve maximum freshness and potency and is packed under nitrogen (i.e. the oil is kept at the right temperature and prevents rancidity). Once the oil has been freshly pressed and bottled, it is refrigerated prior to despatch, helping to preserve optimum freshness and potency.
This is a non-standardised, unrefined and natural oil. Each batch varies and displays a set of unique characteristics. Sediment or natural particles of the ingredients may be visible in the oil. This is simply down to oils never being refined, deodorised or filtered and as organic, may vary slightly per batch (as natural).

Cooking with Flaxseed oil
Fushi’s cold pressed Flaxseed oil has a wonderful taste, which is smooth, mellow, creamy and nutty which makes the oil easy to consume by incorporating into everyday foods and cooking routines. Omega 3 is delicate and so important when cooking with Flaxseed not to cook at hot temperatures. The organic oil should only be heated gently, like with all unsaturated oils. It is extensively used as a dressing/oil for foods and useful as a thickener in sauces without needing to be cooked. You can use Flaxseed oil for baking, gentle cooking, drizzling over salads, vegetables, soup or porridge.
Flaxseed Salad Dressing
Mix in equal parts (3 tablespoons each) of apple cider vinegar, white wine vinegar, or lemon juice with organic flaxseed oil, adding a tablespoon of freshly cut herbs like chives and parsley, with a pinch of dried herbs like oregano. If you want add a little more, add finely chopped garlic and half a teaspoon of mustard too.
Apply topically to the skin to hydrate, seal in moisture, restore elasticity, firmness, tone and texture by massaging into the affected area daily.
1 teaspoon can be added into a warm bath, together with other essential oils as required.
Flaxseed oil’s anti-inflammatory properties reduce irritation and redness of skin, helping to heal rashes or sunburn plus antioxidants in linseed also offer skin protection.
Flaxseed oil can help boost condition of the hair and rid dry scalp due to the anti-inflammatory properties.
It can also preserve vitamin E, fibre, and omega-3 fatty acids in the hair plus improve it’s strength and shine due to the high Alpha Linoleic Acid content in flax seeds (even more concentrated in cold pressed like Fushi’s). Brush Flaxseed oil through tangled or tired hair, or use as hair mask before washing as normal. For a more intense treatment, apply a Flaxseed hair mask once or twice a week.
Applying a Flaxseed hair mask
Wet hair and dry off excess water so hair is damp. Pour a small amount of Flax oil into the palm of your hand and gently massage all over the scalp. Brush hair and wrap into a towel (better effect if the towel is warmed) leaving oil in for 15 to 20 minutes. After this, simply wash your hair with a light shampoo and you may not need conditioner, as the Flax oil will have conditioned hair, often leaving it softer and shinier than conventional conditioners can.
