Baobab Oil is AMAZING!

Baobab (Adansonia Digitata)

Derived from the seeds of the Baobab tree, which is native to eastern and southern Africa, Baobab oil has been used for centuries and is often called one of Africas best kept secrets. A rich, golden oil with a nutty scent, Baobab Oil has high concentrations of essential fatty acids. It absorbs quickly without leaving an oily residue and can help to restore the skin’s elasticity and radiance on the face and body; it can also alleviate chronic skin conditions such as psoriasis.

As if the tree is not beautiful enough, it gives us delicious fruit AND an oil with wonderful properties!

Use it for:

Hair – Baobab oil can be a soothing solution to dry, brittle hair as well as for dandruff or itchy scalp. It’s inherent moisturizing qualities, plus vitamins A, E and F help to regenerate and heal broken hair, while soothing and healing itchy, irritated scalp.

You can apply it alone after shampooing your hair as a conditioner and then rinse it out after a few minutes. You can also just add a drop or two of baobab oil to your regular hair conditioner. It can also be used as a leave-in conditioner. Just rub a few drops in your palms and then apply throughout your hair for gloss and conditioning. Works with my hair! It does not make it greasy.

Nails – Baobab oil strengthens the nails, giving them additional shine.

Body – This oil is a natural moisturiser that improves skin elasticity and prevents wrinkles stimulating cells regeneration. I found it so useful to combine it with my normal day moisturiser. For a luxurious bath, add a few drops to running water. My skin feels so silky afterwards!


You can purchase it on, it costs R160 for 100ml, but will last a looooong time!
