Grape seed oil is a by-product of wine making raw materials abundant and cheap. The left over seeds are crushed then pressed using low heat to prevent damage to the oil. The oil is light, penetrating with a non greasy feel making it excellent for massage blends, especially spa massage blends because the oil may not require a shower afterwards.
Grapeseed oil has been a favorite among aromatherapists for its smooth feel and fast absorption qualities. It has very good absorption qualities and is again becoming a very popular choice in massage formula's, particularly those formula's where the benefit comes from the essential oils absorbing deep into the body. Grape seed is fast absorbing leaving no greasy feel.

History: In the past grape seed was replaced by other oils because of the concern over the chemical extraction process and the fear of the possibility of absorbing trace amounts of hexanes into the skin, but hexanes are highly volatile while Grape seed oil is not. This makes separating hexanes from a carrier oil a simple and reliable process. The hexanes will dissipate into the air leaving only pure grape seed oil and manufacturers can guarantee less than 1 ppm hexanes even if solvent extracted.
Caution: Generally Regarded as Safe (GRAS) however, Aroma & More recommends testing on a small area of skin to check for reaction before using on larger areas.
