Like many other carrier oils, you’re likely familiar with Avocado from the shelves of your local market. As with the fruit itself, Avocado oil is packed with properties that are beneficial to your body. A high content of vitamins A and E make this oil good for skin concerns such as acne and scarring. Avocado oil nourishes and restores dry, dehydrated and mature skin due to the aforementioned vitamins and its high antioxidant content. It’s also loaded with oleic acid, which can help reduce inflammation and speed the healing process of small cuts and scrapes. Reducing inflammation is beneficial in relieving muscle and joint pain as well. Avocado oil is rich and heavy, so we recommend combining it with other carrier oils.
