Chokeberry Seed Oil

Add to Personalized Shopping List

Chokeberries are the small fruits produced by the Aronia melanocarpa shrub. When consumed raw, the berries are extremely tart, thus lending to its chokeberry nickname. The Aronia melanocarpa shrub produces small chokeberries that are encased in a skin that is dark purple to black in hue. These astringent, flavorful, polyphenol-rich berries are commonly used in jams, syrups, wines, juices, tisanes, flavorings and other culinary applications.

Our Chokeberry Seed Oil is expeller pressed from dried chokeberry seeds. The oil is then carefully filtered to produce an amber oil that has a lovely texture and sweet, mild aroma. It is meticulously handled, stored and packaged to maintain the purity, freshness and beneficial properties of this extraordinary oil.


Uses:

Chokeberry Seed Oil absorbs rapidly and serves as a versatile, nutritive oil within a wide array of cosmetic, personal care and aromatherapy applications.

Customer Testimonial

"I just wanted to write to say thank you. I have been purchasing products from your Web site for quite a while, namely rice bran, seaweed powders, camellia oil, dead sea salts and most recently, shea butter. I have very sensitive skin, and there aren't many products on the market that I don't develop a nasty rash from. I'm a research chemist, and many ingredients in mass market products are petrochemically derived. Although the by products may be trace, it is still enough to agitate my skin. It is also important for me to select products that do not have a vile effect on the environment. I ran an online search for rice bran to use as a gentle face wash and stumbled across FNWL. I was absolutely delighted with the delicate cleansing and calming effect it had on my face. Most recently, the shea butter I purchased has completely healed the eczema on my knees. I wanted to say thank you. Your product quality and prices are absolutely superb. "
