The fatty acids increase the natural oil barrier of the skin which helps it to keep hydrated and younger looking. 

Macadamia penetrates the skin better and more deeply than most other carrier oils and leaves no oily residue. This makes it a great oil to use as a base for massage blends with essential oils as it helps to infuse the positive properties of the essential oils into the skin.

Perfect for use with any essential oil which is suitable for use on the skin. Dilution rates vary between different essential oil so you should always check the guidelines for each oil before use.
