Our Abyssinian Oil is derived from the tiny seeds of Crambe abyssinica, considered a crucifer. Originally native to the Mediterranean region, Crambe abyssinica is now grown in several other regions of the world.

Abyssinian Oil is a highly stable oil that is regarded for its significant content of Erucic Acid, a monosaturated Omega-9 fatty acid known for its ability to act as a natural lubricant for massage, skin and hair care applications.

Our Abyssinian Oil is sustainably produced using rigid and demanding standards that ensures that the Crambe abyssinica crops are closely monitored and that production of the oil complies with all quality control standards. The oil is then carefully packaged to maintain the purity, freshness and beneficial properties of this nutritive oil.


Our Abyssinian Oil is a highly stable, versatile, emollient oil that spreads easily and is well suited for a wide range of natural cosmetic and personal care products. It can be used to disperse colorants and other nutritives within a formulation. Its long chain, unsaturated fatty acids are conditioning for both skin and hair. It hydrates the skin while balancing the tone and texture. Its lubricity makes it helpful as a detangler in hair care products. Abyssinian Oil offers excellent slip and spreadability without drag, making it useful in massage applications.

Comments: Was one of the free items with purchase, which was great cause I wanted to try this oil. Nice glide on my skin. I know it says faint aroma but I can really smell it. The smell does dissipate quite quickly, and it probably won't be noticeable mixed with other oils or butters.

“Your company is top notch!”

“I just had to write you and tell you that your company is top notch! I inadvertently used the wrong zip code when I ordered my products. however, you caught the error and delivered it to the correct location. I cannot tell you how grateful I am, because I really needed these products today. This is my first order from FNWL. Your packaging is superb. Nothing is leaking or torn and no product is wasted (which is something that I cannot say about all suppliers). I will be placing another order next week, and just wanted you to know that I appreciate a great business supplier that will take the time to ensure quality to their customers. Thank you!!!!”
