Oil Series: Avocado Oil


What is Avocado Oil?

Avocado oil comes from the avocado fruit. It is very rich in amino acids and vitamins such as A, B6, D, E, iron, magnesium, copper and folic acid. This oil is great because it does not leave any greasy residue and can also be used on the skin as a massage and moisturizing oil.

    1. What do you use this oil for? I use it in my oil mix and also if I am going to be out in the sun, I just put some on the canopy of my hair for sunscreen protection. Just wondering how other people use this product.
