Vegetable oils

Hazelnut

Hazelnut vegetable oil is dark yellow in its colour and has a strong hazelnutty smell. Like many other vegetable oils made from nuts, it’s a thick and nutritious oil which is slowly absorbed in the skin. 

Usage

, , , , , , , , ,

Skin care

  • Suits any skin type, especially dry to normal skin.  Takes a while to absorb, so it can be combined with for instance grapeseed oil, jojoba oil or safflower oil for quicker absorption.
  • Can be used as a nutritious face oil or body oil.
  • Is a great ingredient to use when making lip balm.

 

Hair care

  • Apply a few drops to the ends after washing your hair, or mix into a hair mask for shiny, nourished hair. Especially good for damaged hair.
