    I use it, too, for cooking and salads! I love the taste–it’s slightly sweet and slightly nutty at the same time. It’s very light. Maybe I should use it for my roseacea? ^^

      Sophie, it sounds lovely. I need to buy a bottle and use it too cook too.

      Canola Oil doesn’t do much for skin, apart from moisturizing it. It can help repair the skin’s protective barrier when it is damaged, but I don’t think it will help treat rosacea. At least I couldn’t find any studies claiming it works for rosacea yet.
