Buriti Carrier Oil
Buriti Carrier Oil: Mauritia flexuosa
Known as buriti palm oil, the Amazonian plant and oil have been used for centuries throughout South America and Brazil. The Brazilians call this plant the "Tree of Life." This rejuvenating carrier oil has nourishing qualities that make it ideal for use to cleanse and soften areas of skin. Blend with your favorite emollient essential oils to moisturize hair and skin for a radiant, healthy glow all over your body.
Our buriti oil is sustainably wildcrafted. The Apothecary Shoppe works closely with the distiller, Eduardo, who confirms that the harvesters climb the trees to collect the bunches that are used to create this wonderful "life giving" oil––no trees are ever cut down in this process.
