Wheat-germ oil is derived from wheat germ, which is considered the “heart” of wheat since it is found at the center of the wheat berry. This rich emollient is a powerhouse for natural Vitamin E which provides a rich source of antioxidants, something your skin can never get enough of.
Wheat Germ Oil is one of the best oils to support collagen production and fight the cruel signs of aging. It repairs and heals skin conditions and is one of the best oils to prevent scarring.

What is a Carrier Oil?
Carrier oil is any oil used to dilute essential oils before being applied to the skin. It is a vegetable oil derived from the fatty portion of a plant, which is usually from the seeds, kernels or nuts.
Application & Recipes
Apply to melt & pour soap base, liquid soap base or skincare recipes. It can be applied directly to the skin with the choice of essential oils. Dilute 1-2% of essential oil to 30ml carrier oil. Do a patch test on your skin prior to use.
Skin Lightening Blend
Mix 1 tablespoon of Wheat Germ oil with 2 tablespoons of Jojoba oil. Pour the mixture into a glass bottle for storage. This oil blend is best used before sleep.
Mix 4 to 5 drops of Almond oil and Wheat Germ oil with 2 drops of Vitamin E into a bowl. Massage your face with light strokes for about 10-15 minutes. You will find this mixture not getting readily absorbed as it is oil-based. Since I have very oily skin I used a mud mask after massaging this gel so that extra oil maybe absorbed. Before massaging I even steamed my face for about 5-7 minutes to open my pores followed by scrubbing.
