Throw out the coconut oil... avocado oil is the new MUST have for health and beauty

It's the superfood that keeps on giving.

Pure avocado oil... it's 100% organic and people are going mental for it. We've traditionally been firmly on the coconut oil bandwagon so we were slightly wary. Although we're also avocado people.

Okay so why is it so good? It boasts a wealth of health benefits, oleic acid is the big one it's the same stuff that won olive oil it's fame back in the day. It's known to have several positive effects including lowering the risk of some cancers, preventing flare-ups of auto-immune diseases and wound healing.

Sounds good to us!

If you're bloated and gassy (which happens to us all ladies) or suffer from heart burn, then avocado oil could be the right choice!

These problems all amout to a digestive issue, and the fatty acids in avocado oil will help the digestive tract to process food at a better pace, you won't see results straight away but stick with it.

It's not just used as a cooking oil, some people are using it as a face moisturiser. The people over at SuperFoodProfiles believe that avocado oil has an immediate and positive impact on your skin. They claim that it's not only good for acne and blackheads, it hydrates and smoothes your skin and it's also good for wrinkles.

Is it expensive? Avocados are known to be a little on the pricey side, so how much will this wonder oil set us back?

Natures aid avocado oil is the one we've been using and so far so good, you can get it at pharmacies nationwide such as Allcare and Lifepharmacy, it retails at €10.95.

It is a little pricey, but with all the health benefits we're convinced this stuff could be 100% unicorn blood.

We'll take it all.
