Our Macadamia Oil is a non volatile oil extracted from the Macadamia nuts harvested as fully ripened from the Macadamia integrifolia, a native tree to Australia. Macadamias are be found growing in the warm climates of the north eastern states – mainly Queensland in the rich organic soils of the rain forests, near waterways.
The nuts are abundant with oil which is a triglyceride oil containing monounsaturated fats – higher than Canola and Olive oils which makes Macadamia Oil super nourishing in skin and body care.
Macadamia Oil is lightly amber in colour, this beautiful vegetable oil contains a high concentration of palmitoleic acid – a fatty acid popular in fish oils.
Popular as a carrier oil for blending with many essential oils for either massage or for skin and body care products.
This beautiful oil is popular as a hair oil due to its moisturising action in the hair follicles, adding shine and assisting in creating stronger, healthier hair strands. Useful specifically for long hair or for those who swim often massage into the hair after a dip in the ocean or a lap swim in chlorine to keep the hair well nourished. Even in dry climates, a little Macadamia oil would help keep your hair looking good.
Macadamia Oil is also used blended with other vegetable oils for a rich and nourishing massage oil.
In Aromatherapy, Macadamia oil is well known for being a useful oil which sinks into the skin quite rapidly due to it’s fine composition.
Keep your Macadamia oil in a cool place, preferably in the fridge below 30° and it will last longer.
Love this vegetable oil as a carrier and if you are lucky, the nuts lightly salted are full of food value. A true Australian delight. Safe to be used by all the family anywhere, any time.
