At Ossa we use The Tallow to roast, cook and fry but also as a natural emollient for the skin.  The team often make homemade body balms with this jar of gold mixed with our favourite essential oils.

Tallow can be seen to mirror the structure of our skin cells and with fatty acids also considered the building blocks of these cells, fats like the tallow have been shown to help aid skin repair and regeneration (Weston A Price Foundation).
