Macadamia Oil - 1 Litre
Our Macadamia Base Oils are ideal for diluting essential oils before using them on skin. All our base oils are 100% natural pure oil.
The Macadamia nut was first discovered (by Europeans) after the settlement of Australia although they had been eaten and processed by the indigenous Australians for many years. Macadamia Oil is very versatile for cooking, cosmetics and personal care. The oil has long been used in cooking as it is excellent for frying due to a high heat capacity.
It can also be stored for over one year without any form of refrigeration. In cosmetics the oil is generally used in thicker creams due to the oils heavier and more luxurious feel. Macadamia also has some use in blocking the harmful rays of the sun so is often used in sun lotions. Probably most notably, the oil closely resembles sebum, which is naturally produced by the skin to protect itself.
