Organic unrefined Avocado oil is a choice carrier oil to penetrate and moisturize dry skin. Very high in Oleic acid (C18:1) responsible for moisture retention benefits for skin.
Avocado oil is excellent for pregnancy related tight belly skin and stretch marks. Expectant mothers can blend Avocado and Rose Hip oil
with organic Tangerine
essential oil (see our Dilution Chart
to help make blending calculations). Avocado is highly emollient, moisturizing and touted to regenerate skin cells. Combine with Rose Hip for scars and stretch marks.
Avocado is a thick oil best blended at 10-15% with other carrier oils. We do not recommend cold storage (refrigeration) for this oil. Proper storage should be cool (not cold) and dark. When unrefined Avocado oil is exposed to cold temperatures it will thicken and require warming at room temperature or a warm water bath to liquefy.
