Avocados have been an integral piece of the Mexican diet for at least 10,000 years, and beginning 5,000 years ago tribes like the Inca and Maya began cultivating the trees which make Avocado Oil. Spanish explorers in the 16th century were the first Europeans to enjoy the avocado, and over the next few hundred years, the fruit spread throughout Central America, South America, and Europe. However, it took until the 20th century for avocados to be commercially produced in America.
The Persea gratissima plant is a tree that is native to South Central Mexico. Also known as the alligator pear, avocados are the tree’s fruit with green skin, a fleshy body, and a spherical pear shape. In order to obtain the oil of the sweet and nutty avocado fruit, cold pressed extraction is used. The flesh is dried to remove moisture, then pressed and placed in a centrifuge to separate all of the oil.
Avocado oil is a rich and heavy oil with vast stores of vitamins A, D, and E, lecithin, potassium, amino acids, beta-carotene, and other essential fatty acids. Since it is such a thick oil, it’s recommended to utilise avocado oil as 10% of any carrier oil blend. This provides all of the proteins, vitamins, and other nutrients without leaving a sticky or waxy feeling on the skin. Avocado oil even has an excellent shelf life and can remain fresh in the refrigerator at least one year after it is opened.
There is a multitude of benefits to using avocado oil alone or as a carrier oil with essential oils. First and foremost, it provides incredible healing properties for the skin including moisturising and healing aged, dried, and dehydrated skin. All of the oil’s vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids can effectively restore and rejuvenate skin, including stretch marks! Many people like to apply avocado oil to eczema and psoriasis, especially when blended with Lavender and other healing essential oils. Read More

What Are The Benefits Of Avocado Oil?
So, what are the benefits of avocado oil in particular? We’re glad you asked! Tribes like the Inca and the Maya understood the benefits of the avocado and its oils over 10,000 years ago – in fact, the avocado was a key piece of the Mexican diet from this time onwards and has maintained its popularity ever since.
You can use avocado oil alone, or as 10% of a ‘carrier’ oil blend. This is because it is a thick oil, which is heavy and rich, and comprises scores of vitamins, including vitamins A, D, and E, as well as beta-carotene, amino acids, lecithin, potassium, and other essential fatty acids. It provides excellent moisturising, anti-ageing, and healing qualities to the skin, restoring and rejuvenating damage such as scars and stretch marks, and has been proved to aid in the treatment of conditions like eczema and psoriasis. When blended with lavender, you can even enjoy extra soothing, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, and sweet-smelling benefits. We at Australian Oils of Nature would love to hear from you, and help you reconnect with this natural world. Enjoy health benefits and feel like a brand new you with our essential avocado oil.
