The Baobab tree is native to Africa and South Asia. The seeds produce an oil that native women have used for countless years to protect their skin and hair from harsh weather conditions. Baobab Seed Oil is an excellent source of fatty acids, including Linoleic Acid (omega-6) and Linolenic Acid (omega-3). It also is a rich source of Vitamin A and Vitamin E. Baobab oil therefore claims to have many benefits such as softening and reconstructing the skin, improving elasticity of the skin and encouraging the regeneration of cells.

Description

Use

As a Massage oil

Baobab oil has a really different texture that most other oils. One can use it as massage oil to get silky, smooth skin. The massage is easily facilitated because of this oil. Massage with this oil is good for dry, damaged skin. It helps the skin restructure and heal itself. This way, it can help heal dry skin patches. It is quickly absorbed into the skin.

Treatment for Stretchmarks

Baobab oil is a nice remedy for stretchmarks. Regular application on area affected by stretchmarks reduces the appearance and depth of these marks. It is possible that the oil stimulates collagen and elastin synthesis under the skin to heal the stretchmarks. Similarly, it can be used to heal wound scars, like post surgical scars.

Chapped Lips

Baobab oil is naturally great for chapped lips. Just a small amount of oil applied to the lips gets rid of the chapped lips condition.

Hair Conditioner

Baobab oil can be applied on the scalp for an oil conditioning. Cover with a shower cap for a few hours and then wash it off. This leaves the hair soft and noticeably silky. It also adds some volume to the hair. Applying Baobab oil to the hair protects them from damage by sun and free radicals which leaves the hair separated, damaged and frizzy.

Nail Care

Soak the hands and feet in baobab oil. It makes them soft and easy to take care of. This is helpful in mild ingrown toenail as well, as the nail becomes soft and easy to pull out. This nail treatment prevents them from unwanted breakage.
