Macadamia Nut (Macadamia Integrifolia) Oil comes from the pressed nuts of the Macadamia Tree. Macadamia Oil is very beneficial for the skin, enhancing the skins own restorative and protective properties and helping to support the skins ability to heal itself. It is rich in nutrients and essential fatty acids and has exceptionally good absorption properties. Macadamia Nut Oil has historically been used for scars, sunburn, minor wounds and other skin irritations. It is particularly popular as a facial massage oil in beauty salons and is also good for adding moisture to the décolletage after sun exposure. Macadamia Nut Oil has an exotic scent which works well with robust, woody aromatherapy essential oils such as Sandalwood, Cedarwood and Frankincense.
Professional Tip: Due to its scent and viscosity the experts at Base Formula recommend diluting it with a lighter carrier oil at 5-20% depending on skin type.
Hair Oil for Dry/Brittle Hair
Mix 10ml Macadamia, 10ml Argan Oil, 2 drops Patchouli essential oil, 4 Ylang Ylang and 4 Geranium. Shake well. Pour a small amount in your hand (it’s a very rich mixture), massage thoroughly into your hair after it has been washed, concentrating on the hair shaft and ends and avoiding the roots. Brush well to ensure the oil reaches as much of the hair shaft as possible. Your hair will then feel shiny, manageable and less tangly.
Rejuvenating Face Mask for Dry/Mature Skin
1 egg yolk
1 tbsp natural plain yoghurt
1 tbsp clear honey
2-3 tbsp pinhead oatmeal
1 tsp Macadamia Nut Oil
2 drops Neroli essential oil
3 drops Lavender essential oil
2 drops Frankincense essential oil
1 drop Rose essential oil
Gently warm the honey until it is runny (not until its hot!) – then whisk in the egg yolk. Add in the yogurt, the oils and the oatmeal. Stir well until the mixture is light, smooth and creamy. Do a skin patch test - dab onto inner arm and leave for 10 mins – check for reaction. If none, proceed.
To use, wash face with hot water to help open the pores, and allow maximum absorption of the nutrients. Dry face and apply the mask, using facial brush or finger tips. Be careful not to get the mixture too near the eyes. Leave on for 10 minutes. Gently remove with a flannel, and then wash the face with cold water to help close the pores – sealing in all that lovely nourishment and moisture.
Facial Treatment Oil For Dry/Sun damaged/Mature Skin
This is a rich, once a week treatment oil to feed your skin cells deeply with a highly nourishing blend of base and essential oils.
Mix 20ml Apricot Kernel Oil, 5ml Argan Oil and 5ml Macadamia, 2 drops Rose essential oil, 2 Neroli, 2 Benzoin, 2 German Chamomile and 6 Lavender. Shake well before use, then remove make-up and splash face with warm water. Massage a few mls of this blend into your face – remembering the forehead and neck area. Relax for 20 minutes then wipe off any residual oil that has not been absorbed. Finally splash the face with warm and then cold water.
