It just sounds spring-like, doesnt it But you don't have to wait; stock up on this oil now. Sunflower oil has a light taste and appearance, which makes it a versatile ingredient and cooking oil. It has a high smoke-point so it stands up well to heat, says Cording. It can also be used in low-heat cooking methods or in a sauce or as an ingredient in sunflower seed butter. It makes a great all-purpose oil to have in your kitchen. On the benefit side, sunflower oil is higher in antioxidant vitamin E than any other oil, so drizzle this to employ some free-radical-fighting powers.
Pro tip: If using for frying, you can pour oil into a spritzer bottle and spray lightly but evenly onto a pan or skillet, says Cording. Easy peasy.
Other uses: Again, you can keep this one on hand for skincare woes, too. Sunflower oil is sometimes used as a massage oil or as a topical treatment for wounds, psoriasis or arthritis.
