We love oils, whether they are for the face, body or taken orally. We don’t leave home without incorporating at least one into our daily routine. At The Amazing Blog, today we are featuring one of our preferred brands Fushi - an ethically sourced health and beauty brand. Previously, we’ve featured their Bio Vedic Skincare range and Fushi Pomegranate Oil, here we’d like to introduce you to one of their latest products, the Sea Buckthorn Oil.

Fushi’s Sea Buckthorn Oil has marvellous benefits and is 100% pure, virgin, organic and cold-pressed; it’s composed primarily of rich berries sourced in Germany. One of the things that we liked the most is that it is food grade. Its bright orange colour tells us how rich it is in lycopene and carotenoid.  Sea buckthorn oil is also incredibly rich in Omega-3, 6, 7 and 9 fatty acids and vitamins B, C and E. These ingredients help to heal, form collagen, nourish and act as anti-ageing factors for your skin (i.e. with sunburn it immediately helps with skin repair). Another little-known fact about this oil is also very beneficial for your nails, hair and scalp. Mainly because it is so rich in antioxidants, it strengthen your nails by stimulating the production of collagen and nourishing the cuticles. It will also hydrate your hair making it grow faster and healthier combating breakage. Even more surprising, is that it is much richer in vitamins than most fruits (such as oranges), it has omega 7 which contains vitamin A and contributes to enhancing eyesight, maintaining good skin. And let’s not forget the blood, brain and even supports the digestive system! This really is a super food.

In fact, this is a powerhouse amongst all oils with its endless benefits. To take it, just ingest 1 or 2 teaspoons on a daily basis with your meals or directly massage it onto your skin. This is definitely a gold mine for a radiant skin and body. As the saying goes, you are what we eat, so don’t miss out and get your 50ml Fushi Sea Buckthorn Oil here for £25.

The Groovy Food Company's Omega High Five Cooking Oil

At The Amazing Blog we love cooking  and everyday we gather around the dining table to have lunch, and we can't help but to try each other's food and judge our colleagues' cooking skills. In my attempt to eat healthily, I realized that not only the ingredients of the final dish should be of a good quality, but the base ingredients aswell. Using the right oil or butter is essential, not only for the taste but for your own health too. When I came across with The Groove Food Company's Omega High Five Cooking Oil, I felt that my mission of leading a healthy lifestyle was being accomplished little by little.

Tagged as a "nutritious oil", the Omega High Five Cooking Oil is the perfect blend of five virgin fruit and seed oils rich in omega acids 3, 6 and 9 and vitamin E: camelina, avocado, virgin olive, oleic sunflower and toasted sesame seeds oil. The final result is a luxurious cooking oil that keeps its flavour and goodness even at high temperatures. We've tried the Omega High Five Cooking Oil with nearly everything: pasta, rice, salads, fries, meat dishes... and even though its taste isn't the one you'd expect from a cooking oil (you can definitely tell it contains sesame seed oil even though the taste is subtle), the final dish is tasty and contains no processed or bad quality added oils.

The Groovy Food Company's Omega High Five Cooking Oil is suitable for everyone but it does however, contain sesame seeds. This fabulous and nutritious cooking oil is widely available at Tesco, Sainsbury's and at select healthfood retailers for £6.99 the 500 ml bottle.
