AVOCADO UNREFINED OIL
The lush and sensual Avocado fruit belongs to the fruits of Venus, goddess of love and beauty and even now enjoys a reputation as a 'love food'. This association was not lost on the ancient Aztecs, who revered this tree for its sensuous fruit. In their eyes they resembled testicles, which is reflected in the nahuatl name for this tree: 'Ahuacuatl'.
This thick and lush, dark green, slightly fragrant oil derives from the avocado fruit. It is highly nutritious containing scores of vitamins: A, B, C, D, E, H, K, PP as well as proteins, lecithin and amino acids. Despite its thick texture, avocado oil is easily absorbed by the deeper layers of the skin. It makes a great addition to nourishing lotions and body creams as it is an ideal moisturiser and makes a good addition to base oils and healing salves.
