Description: Meadowfoam seed refined oil is a light, golden oil that is extracted from the seeds of the meadowfoam plant (Limnanthes alba). It has a mild, nutty aroma and a slightly sweet taste. Meadowfoam seed oil is a good source of erucic acid, an omega-9 fatty acid that has been shown to have a number of health benefits.
Meadowfoam seed oil has the beneficial properties as:

Meadowfoam seed oil and Flax seed oil can be used for many of the same purposes, including:
- Moisturizing and nourishing the skin
- Conditioning and protecting the hair
- Massage therapy
Both oils are also good sources of omega fatty acids, which have a number of health benefits.
However, there are some differences between the two oils. Flaxseed oil is a richer source of omega-3 fatty acids, while meadowfoam seed oil is a richer source of omega-9 fatty acids. Flaxseed oil also has a lower smoke point than meadowfoam seed oil, so it is not as well-suited for high-temperature cooking.
Here are some additional tips for using meadowfoam seed oil:
- Use it as a leave-in conditioner, shaving cream, beard oil, or carrier oil for essential oils.
- Add it to your bathwater or smoothies.
