Peanut Oil is primarily an edible oil due to its pleasant yet mild taste
and its high smoke point. It is one of the most popular staples in Asian
cuisine for wok and deep-frying, and is rich in oleic and linoleic fatty
acids. It is also used in the preparation of shortenings, margarines,
Peanut Oil is thought to have a stimulating effect on skin tissue, and
therefore is widely used as a base in numerous products including soaps,
baby preparations, hair grooming aids, quick-dry nail products, shampoos,
night creams, and as a solvent for ointments and liniments. Peanut Oil
can also found in paints, machinery oil, and is used in the making of
nitroglycerin and in diesel fuel for specifically modified engines.
Used by Holistic Health Practitioners, Peanut Oil is claimed to help
with a variety of conditions such as constipation, skin diseases, asthma,
arthritis, and as an aid in healing stomach and intestinal ulcerations.
