Blend together then add to bath water once filled and swirl into water with hand. Be cautious getting out, tub may be slippery.

Have chapped skin from frequent hand washing? Try our Lavender & Orange Blossom Foaming Hand Wash, followed by several drops of avocado oil massaged into hands.

2. Promotes Healthy Cuticles and Nails

Avocado oil can help with nail and cuticle health. Dry and brittle nails can use the nourishing fats and vitamins that are in this carrier oil.

Get healthy hands with noticeably stronger nails with our Nail & Hand Revitalizer: Add 6 drops lavender oil, 4 drops of frankincense oil and 2 drops of tea tree oil to a 1 oz dropper bottle, fill rest of bottle with avocado oil.

Is avocado oil a carrier oil?

Avocado oil is extracted from avocado fruit and is commonly used in kitchen as a cooking oil. But avocado oil can also be used as a carrier oil. This means it can be used to reduce the strength of potent essential oils that are too strong to use on their own and make them safe for topical application, such as treating skin irritation.

It also provides emollient properties that help skin retain moisture, heal quicker and remain soft. In addition, avocado oil contains proteins, fatty acids and vitamins, which can help solve other skin problems like dry scalp or cracked feet. So if you’re looking for a skin care solution that packs some extra nutrients - avocado oil is definitely an excellent choice!

In addition, avocado oil is packed with vitamins and fatty acids that can help nourish the skin, making it beneficial for any number of uses in topical treatments.

As well, avocado oil does not break down when exposed to air or heat, meaning it has a long shelf life that makes it an even more desirable option for anyone looking to use avocado oil as their preferred carrier. All in all avocado oil is an ideal choice as a carrier due to its numerous qualities and benefits.

Can I use cooking avocado oil for skin?

Avocado oil is a great all-rounder and can be used for both cooking, as well as skincare. This natural oil is rich in fatty acids and antioxidants, making it nourishing and hydrating for the skin. It also has anti-inflammatory benefits that make avocado oil effective in treating irritated or dry skin.
