It has excellent moisturising, anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties and is good on overheated, sensitive, irritated, sunburned or dry skin. Massage into the skin on a daily basis or mix 2-5% with some cream, lotion or other carrier oils or essential oils.
The name pomegranate derives from Latin pomum (meaning apple) and granatus (meaning seeded). This has influenced the common name for pomegranate in many languages (e.g., German Granatapfel, seeded apple). In early English, the Pomegranate was known as Apple of Grenada - a term which today survives only in heraldic blazons.
