Baobab Oil – A Unique Natural Oil
The baobab tree is a symbol of wisdom from Africa and is one of the oldest trees on the planet.
Traditionally called “Tree of Life”, it can provide shelter, food and health benefits to humans and animals living in the African savanna.
PILANI Baobab Oil is cold pressed from the baobab fruit seeds and thus preserves all its richness of essential minerals, nutrients and proteins.
The BIO-certified (Bioagricert) oil is of highest quality, containing natural antioxidants and anti-aging, skin tightening, moisturising and nourishing components.
PILANI Baobab Oil has a distinctive fine texture. It is rapidly absorbed and brings a light satiny veil to skin. It relieves the tired body during massage, intensely nourishes and moisturizes skin, improves skin elasticity and has anti-ageing properties. It strengthens and protects dry hair and brings shine to it.
How to apply :
Apply in small quantities and gently massage into skin.
Ideal for body and scalp massage.
When applying on face, avoid the eye contour area.
When applying on hair, use on dry hair.
PILANI Baobab Oil is an excellent carrier for essential oils. It is almost odorless and thus adapts to the finest fragrance.
Add a few drops of your essential oil for use in aromatherapy.
How to store : Ideal storage is at room temperature: 15 – 25 °C .
At lower temperatures, baobab oil can slightly solidify and form white clouds at the bottom of the bottle.
The oil readily dissolves at higher temperatures, however it is not recommended to store the product at lower than 15 °C for a prolonged period of time.
Buchu Betulina Essential Oil
Buchu is a small evergreen shrub belonging to the Rutaceae family.
It bears white, star-like flowers. The essential oil is extracted from its small, 1cm long leaves by steam distillation.
Buchu is a native South African plant and was traditionally used by the indigenous Khoi-San for medicinal purposes. In traditional Khoi-San healing, massage and touch therapy played an important role. They were referred to as “people who anointed their bodies with bushes”, because of their habit of massaging with powdered aromatic bushes. In this precise case, the Khoi-San mixed the Buchu leaves with the sheep fat as an ointment to treat wounds and for perfumery/fragrance application.
How to use Buchu essential oil:
Buchu as a fragrance is a bouquet of scents ranging from minty to fruity and herbal.
