It spreads well and has a slow absorption rate so makes for a good massage oil.
Avocado oil is ultra rich and contains high amounts of vitamin A, B1, B2, D and E, as well as amino acids, pantothenic acid, lecithin and other essential fatty acids. It is recommended for those with skin problems, psoriasis and eczema. Because it is rich and thick it can be diluted with other carrier oils.
