Cold pressed from the fruit of the avocado, avocado oil is a dark green color with a dense texture. It lacks any discernable scent, making it an excellent carrier oil for any topical essential oil preparation. Provides deep penetration with a long-lasting moisture barrier to help the skin retain its natural hydration. Excellent for extremely dry, dehydrated or aging skin, or in the presence of extensive sun/elemental damage. Contains high levels of vitamin A and E, making it an excellent choice for use in skin or hair preparations, though if applied too liberally, it can leave the skin feeling slightly waxy or leave a heavy buildup on the hair. For maximum shelf life, it is recommended to store away from heat and light.

It is often mixed with other carrier oils like Sweet Almond or Jojoba due to its oily residue. (10% Avocado oil to 90% Almond oil) Essential oils are often too strong to apply undiluted to the skin and evaporate rapidly. This is where a good carrier oil comes into play. They do not evaporate or have a very overpowering aroma and so blend well with essential oils making them less volatile. This combination is perfect for all forms of body massage.
