Avocado - Not Just For Guacamole

Hey Y'all!

I hope this post finds you doing well and you had a fabulous Easter weekend! We had a fun filled weekend of volleyball and I am still looking for the driver of the Mack truck that mowed me over. I have finally come to the realization I am no longer a spring chicken. Not really sure if it was the split dive or the hard landing on my rear that gave me the epiphany but I'm a believer now!

Avocado oil is a fabulous ingredient pressed from the pulp surrounding the seed and has been used in skin treatments for centuries due to its therapeutic properties rich in vitamins A, B1, B2, B5 (Pantothenic Acid - which has an effect on healing wounds), vitamins D and E, protein, minerals, lecithin and fatty acids.

Avocado oil has moisturizing, healing and regenerating properties and it is a penetrating nutrient for dry skin. It is great for soothing sensitive skin, treating minor skin irritations, aids in keeping skin smooth and moist and is a preferred oil for products used by suffers of eczema and psoriasis.

You can find avocado oil in our Cocoa Mint Scrub and the new products coming soon, which will include face, body and hair care. Also, let's not forget that avocados make a mean batch of guacamole and are fabulous in a California Sushi Roll!

Thanks for stopping by y'all and have a fabulous day!
