Flaxseed oil, also known as flax oil or linseed oil, is made from flax seeds that have been ground and pressed to release their natural oil. Much like flax seeds, flaxseed oil is loaded with beneficial fatty acids that can reduce inflammation and make the skin look younger. Filled with omega-3 fatty acids Flax Seed Oil is reputed to be an excellent oil to use on sensitive skin.
