Wheatgerm oil is very nourishing and is high in essential fatty acids and vitamin E, a natural antioxidant. It assists in promoting circulation and formation of new cells to improve the appearance of skin and to repair sun damage to the skin. It can be applied externally to soothe various irritations including roughness of the skin, cracking, chafing and wrinkling. Wheatgerm oil may be too sticky to use on its own so it as a massage oil, but it can be mixed with other carrier oils for a smoother blend.
