Radish oil is a golden oil with no odor that is extracted by cold-pressing the seeds of the radish plant (Raphanus Sativus).
If taken internally, radish oil may strengthen the immune system and treat symptoms of a sore throat, colds, and coughs.
Radish oil is a source of essential fatty acids, copper, calcium, magnesium, B vitamins and vitamin C, which make it a hydrating and healing skin oil that can penetrate the skin and make it soft and supple. It may be useful to reduce signs of aging and treat insect bites, wounds, and cuts.
Radish seed oil can be used as a serum to strengthen, hydrate and condition the hair and nails.
Directions for use
Radish oil can be used internally by taking 1 teaspoon per day, but speak to your doctor before consuming.
Use this oil topically to hydrate and heal the skin, nails and hair. Apply it as a massage oil and use it as a carrier oil.
