Baobab (Adansonia digitata) is quick absorbing and excellent to use all by itself as a facial oil for dry skin. It has a lovely nutty and sweet aroma with a golden yellow color similar to golden organic jojoba wax. Choose Baobab oil for blends to target:
- improved skin elasticity
- relieve inflamed skin (anti-inflammatory action)
- eczema and psoriasis
- skin tissue regeneration (also helpful in relieving burnt skin)
