An interesting fact about seal oil is that it has applications outside of nutrition. Seal oil has been used for millennia by indigenous peoples of the North in various ways. In fact, from my little knowledge of their cultures, I know that indigenous peoples are very frugal. They do not throw anything away, such as when they hunt an animal. They have a special connection with nature, and every part of an animal is used. This is no different for seals. The pelt, the bones, the meat, and the blubber are all used. But not only is the blubber used, it is used in various ways, including as oil for lamps, as well as for nutrition.
I came across an article in which a young indigenous boy studies seal oil in its application as a source of fuel. It is worth checking out. Seal oil is a truly versatile element!
