How to consume Sea Buckthorn
Sea Buckthorn oil has been used for thousands of years in folk and traditional medicine, with, it would appear, to have little side effects. In addition to taking it in oil form it can be consumed raw (although quite acidic and can taste similar to a lemon) as a juice, in jellies, jams, syrups or sauces.
