Laurel Berry Oil
Our organically crafted Laurel Berry Oil is a specialty carrier oil that is produced from the berries and seeds of the Laurus nobilis shrub that is native to the Mediterranean, particularly Greece and Turkey. Widely know for it's unique skin care properties, Laurel Berry Oil is ideal for making luxurious soaps and a wide variety of skin rejuvenating cosmetics.
Laurel Berry Oil should not be confused with Laurel Leaf Essential Oil that is steam distilled from the leaves of the plant. Our Laurel Berry Oil is produced through a time-honored, traditional process of boiling handpicked Laurel berries until the seeds and pulp separate. The nutritive oil then floats to the top of the water and is carefully collected to maintain the purity and integrity of this traditionally produced, nutritive oil which is the main source of income for many villagers in the growing region. Because Laurel Berry Oil is abundant in beneficial unsaponifiable components, the oil is thicker, opaque and more aromatic than most commercially available vegetable oils.
