Although most of the sunflower oil on the market is highly refined, the warm-pressed version is easy to obtain, and is usually labelled 'Sunflower Seed'. It is golden yellow with a slightly sweet, nutty odour and a fine texture. The unrefined oil contains useful amounts of essential fatty acids and a high level of vitamin B. Sunflower seed oil is popular in beauty care. In the past, it was taken internally as an expectorant to ease complaints such as bronchitis, laryngitis and even whooping cough.
Percentage in Blends: Can be used as a base oil, 100 percent.

Bianca Rosa® natural carrier oils provide the perfect medium in which to dilute potent essential oils and "carry" them onto the skin and into the body. These deep-nourishing oils provide even distribution and absorption with light and non-sticky lubrication. Depending on the potency of the essential oil being diluted, generally, adding 1-3 drops of essential oil to every 5 mL (1 tsp.) of carrier oil is sufficient for most massage or skin care needs. Massage gently into the skin with a circular motion. Apply as needed or as directed.
FOR TOPICAL USE ONLY. NOT TO BE TAKEN INTERNALLY.
Should skin sensitivity occur discontinue use. Store in a cool dry place. Keep out of reach of children. May cause some sensitization.
