Kukui Nut Oil
Several weeks ago I bought some Kukui Nut Oil. I absolutely love it! My favorite oil used to be Macadamia Nut Oil, but Kukui Nut Oil beats it by a long shot. I've made lip balms, lotions and cremes and even shampoo with it. It is great and my skin, hair and lips have never been softer.
What is Kukui Nut Oil??
The Kukui Nut tree is the state tree of Hawaii. Kukui nut oil is cold pressed from the nut of the kukui nut tree. Hawaiians use it to protect their skin. When used in lotions, creams, ointments and balms, it lays down an emollient layer of lipids. It is readily absorbed by the skin and has been known to provide effective relief from the symptoms of eczema, psoriasis, dry skin and acne.
