This golden oil is extracted from the seeds of the vibrant and cheery sunflower plant, and it is the lightest of our base oils—in color, texture, and scent. Generally considered tridoshic, Sunflower Oil is balancing for pitta because of its subtly cooling nature, it is also good for vata, and it is one of the few oils suitable for naturally-oily kapha dosha due to its light texture. Wholly organic, expeller-pressed, and refined using a natural process, our sunflower oil is emollient, hydrating, nourishing, and glides smoothly over the skin without leaving an oily build-up. As a carrier oil, it is an excellent team player—which is why we use it in Kapha Massage Oil, Pitta Massage Oil, Daily Massage Oil, and Sleep Easy Oil to name a few. Whether you want to combine it with your favorite essential oils or just use it straight from the bottle, your smooth, happy skin will thank you for it!
Sunflower Oil is great to stock up on, especially if you have a pitta or kapha constitution or imbalance. If you're planning on ordering one of our larger sizes, consider adding an oil pump to your bottle for a spill-free experience. Pumps are available for 34 and 128 fl oz bottles.
Why the price increase?
Most of the world's sunflower oil is sourced from Ukraine, and the ongoing war there has significantly impacted the supply chain. Global supply is in short demand, and all sunflower oil, including ours, has seen significant spikes in production cost.
