Uses for Ava Jane’s Kitchen Avocado Oil
Ahh, avocado oil! A substance so awesome, it seems like it was gifted to us by a higher power. With the right application, it can help out in just about every area of your life (health-wise!) and makes just about any dish come alive with amazing flavor.
And then we have summer. Warm weather, pools, beaches, sand, fresh salads and foods—summer is the season when the newness of spring has matured. Avocado oil is very useful during the summer months. The better the quality, the more useful it can be, so of course we recommend Ava Jane’s Kitchen Avocado Oil!
The Heat Dries You Out
Let’s face it, summertime can really dry out your skin—especially if you are someone who goes swimming or tanning. Here is one place where avocado oil really shows its worth, in that you can use it to rehydrate the skin of your face and your body, and it is loaded with great vitamins, such as vitamins A, D and E, which are readily absorbed when applied. This is all great for getting your dry skin hydrated and keeping it that way!
Avocado oil is also great as a topical anti-inflammatory due to its vitamins, beta carotene and high levels of antioxidants, so it can also be of great help if your skin gets a little sunburned. The high levels of oleic acid and essential fatty acids in avocado oil can help in the repair of damaged skin. A great way to get the most benefit is to combine Ava Jane’s Kitchen avocado oil with some cold cream and mix in a bit of aloe vera as well. This will create a fantastic after-sun and sunburn relief cream, rehydrating those damaged cells very quickly.
Feelin’ Good Feeties!
Ava Jane’s Kitchen avocado oil is great for the skin, but did you know it can make super-dry skin softer as well? Because of its deep penetrating effects, it makes a great oil to use for foot rubs! If you are fortunate enough to have someone to do it for you, all the better! Nevertheless, rubbing avocado oil on those feet, which tend to get way more dried out in summertime, is a great way to prevent cracked heels and generally make your feet feel much better.
Better Is Better
Not all things are made equal, and this is doubly true with avocado oil. Even when you make a point of using extra virgin avocado oil, some producers aren’t careful during the pressing and processing stages and may use avocado fruits that are damaged or bruised, which reduces the quality from the outset.
On the other hand, when you get a producer who is conscientious and does everything right, you get an oil that is not only super tasty with a plethora of health benefits, but the benefits it has are much higher than could be expected otherwise. Ava Jane’s Kitchen Avocado Oil has a near perfect fat profile and is completely unrefined (exactly how you want it!). Using an oil of that quality will make those health benefits pop!
We are always on the lookout for great uses for avocado oil. Taking a bottle of high-grade with you on your beach retreat seems like a no-brainer (not even counting its ability to grease a squeaky hinge on the boat or oil a stuck lock that won’t open from being rusted).
