Like her grandmother and mother, Asta, founder of Oil of Iceland, consumed a spoonful of cod liver oil every day from early childhood onwards.
Cod liver oil is a way of life for Icelanders and has been used for ages to improve health and prevent various health problems. Later in life, when unable to find a natural solution for her eczema and allergies, Asta started to experiment with mixing cod liver oil in her ointments. The results were incredible and again the omega-3 fatty acids proved their healing power. The fishy smell, however, was dreadful. Yet, inspired by the cod liver oil, Asta did not give up and finally discovered a perfect blend that would give the oil a much more pleasant smell. Many years and many experiments later – with the support of Lysi,
a 100-year-old cod liver oil producer based in Iceland – Oil of Iceland was born.
