Avocado Oil is rich and green in colour with deep moisturising properties.
Latin Name: Persea americana
This carrier is pressed from the dried avocado fruit and can often appear cloudy. If the oil is deep green, then the skins and the fruit have been pressed, as the green comes from the skin. Avocado contains vitamins A, B and D and is rich in lecithin.
Avocado Oil has a reputation for having a higher degree of penetration into the epidermis than most carrier oils.It is beneficial for dry, mature skin and eczema. Usually, because avocado oil is quite thick and deep green in colour, it is diluted in sunflower oil and can form up to 25% of the total mixture.
Avocado is fairly stable and will keep for 2 – 3 years in a cool, dark place.
How to use?
Apply directly to affected areas of the skin or use 15 drops of essential oil in 50ml for massage.
Store in a cool, dark place
