Latin Name: Macadamia ternifolia – Replenishing and easily absorbed
This is the oil from the macadamia nut, grown in new South Wales and Queensland. It is high in palmitoleic acid (18-25%), a monounsaturated fatty acid that does not occur in any other plant oil but is found in sebum. . Fairly stable, the unrefined oil is a soft pale creamy-yellow with a lovely thick texture and a hint of an aroma. Palmitoleic acid in sebum diminishes progressively as we get older and macadamia oil may help replenish this in older skin. It is highly emollient and has anti-ageing properties. Nourishing to a dry and/or mature skin, it has been found useful in sun preparations - it is used in France as an aid against sunburn. When taken internally it is an effective laxative. It is usually blended with sunflower in a 5 - 15% blend, and will keep for up to two years in a cool, dark place.
How to use?
Apply directly to affected areas of the skin or use 15 drops of essential oil in 50ml for massage.
