What is Macadamia Oil?
Macadamia oil is a luxurious and versatile oil that has been used for many years in traditional medicine, cooking, beauty and hair products. Macadamia nuts came from the tropical evergreen macadamia tree, scientifically known as Macadamia integrifolia. The oil is extracted from the macadamia nut. Macadamia trees are actually native to Australia, but can also be found growing in tropical areas such as Brazil, Israel, South Africa, California, New Zealand, Costa Rica, Bolivia, Colombia, Hawaii and Guatemala.
Macadamia oil is extracted from pressed macadamia nuts, giving it a very rich, silky texture. The oil appears as a clear, pale yellow liquid with a mild, nutty aroma. This makes macadamia oil extremely versatile when it comes to crafts such as candle making or soap making, as it is straightforward and easy to work with. Macadamia oil is rich in essential fatty acids and potassium, as well as palmitoleic acid.
What Are the Benefits of Macadamia Oil?
Macadamia carrier oil has a wide variety of benefits for your skin and hair, and it is truly worth adding to your beauty regime. Some of the benefits of macadamia oil include:
Macadamia oil can help with the appearance of moisturised skin. It is found in many skincare products, and some people even choose to mix their own oil into their existing moisturisers and serums.
You can’t go wrong with incorporating macadamia oil into your haircare routine. This oil can reduce the appearance of frizz and can add visible shine to your locks, making it a very popular ingredient in hair care products. However, many people apply the oil straight to their strands, on their mid-lengths to ends. For the appearance of extra nourishment, leave a substantial amount in your hair overnight and wash it out the next morning.
Soap and Candle Making
One of the key benefits of utilising macadamia oil as a carrier oil in crafts such as soap and candle production is its nutty aroma. This makes it an excellent choice for incorporating additional woody perfumes and essential oils such as sandalwood into your goods.
Is Macadamia Oil Good for Hair?
Macadamia oil is great for your hair, whether you’re mixing it in with your shampoos and conditioners or applying it straight to the follicle. Due to its high content of fatty acids, macadamia oil can give you the appearance of nourished and moisturised hair. This makes it a popular ingredient in haircare products.
Lightweight and non-greasy, macadamia oil does not make your hair appear oily or weighed down. So next time you go to give your hair some extra love and care, consider using macadamia oil.
Can I Use Macadamia Oil in My Essential Oil Blends?
Macadamia oil is a carrier oil, making it perfect to use in essential oil blends. Carrier oils are crucial when it comes to using essential oils, as they help dilute the potency of the essential oil – which can often be irritable or far too strong when applied directly to the skin.
Since macadamia oil is lightweight and non-greasy, it is the perfect carrier oil. No matter what you’re using your essential oils for, macadamia oil is there to make it possible. However, always ensure to follow proper dilution guidelines and mix 2-3 drops of essential oil into 150-200ml of the macadamia carrier oil.
