I prefer sweet almond oil. I like the way it feels on my skin and in my hair.

My son gave me some Walnut oil to play with, so far I like it in combination with coconut oil for my dry Winter skin.
Walnut oil also makes an awesome salad dressing oil.

I have a fantasy of getting a press and pressing my own walnut oil! It still remains in the fantasy stage.

most canola oil is likely gmo but it is not as a rule gmo.. it is "hybridized" I'm rather certain.. a process not completely dissimilar to genetic modification as the ominous practice of Monsanto etc.. but actually most fruits and vegetables or produce today are hybridized though only a handful of products are gmo. canola is one, along with soy, corn, cotton, tobacco, zucchini, summer squash, papaya, even apples but not most varieties. but not every item from the list is always going to be gmo, just most of some depending where you are. Hyridized food is made when they mess with the genes and stuff but with genetic modification it's pretty likely the do gene splicing and add evil microbes and stuff such as with the process of corn where they pretty much inject gut exploding bacteria into every cell of the future plant by the seed. I'm not sure about the other gmo processes but hybridizing is not ideal but not as bad as all that. Heirloom variety is the best meaning it's not been tampered with.

yeah what Kezzie says about olive oil being impostered is an important fact to consider but there are brands that are trustworthy. I don't care for olive oil that much though since I started using other oils because the smell bothers me. We use grapeseed oil for cooking all the time now though an issue with that is it's not commonly organic. I've only experimented with making a few infusions and used coconut oil because of its solidification factor

Lady A - look to California for your pure, unadulterated olive oil. There is no sense buying what is passed off as imported from Italy. Often enough those bottles don't even have olive oil in them. Just a blend of other oils from other countries that the wording of the law allows to be passed of as olive oil. It is also very often quite outdated when it arrives on our shelves.
The California olive oils I have tried are amazing, and organics are very available.

Are there any brands that you would recommend?
