About Prickly Pear Botanical Oil
Prickly pear botanical oil has become one of our best selling botanical oils. It has a wonderfully emollient quality, and makes a wonderful facial treatment all on its own. It is very good for the following uses:
- Reducing spider veins
- Softening skin
- Moisturizing skin
- Reducing dark circles under eyes
- Reversing the effects of aging on skin–wrinkles, creases, and lack of tone
Many aromatherapists are combining argan botanical oil with prickly pear botanical oil as a facial oil treatment for mature skin, to regenerate and nourish the skin daily. This combination may be more effective than either of the two oils alone.
It makes a wonderful base for cremes, herbal facial treatments, and body oils. It is also very nice as an over night oil treatment for the face. It blends well with other botanical oils, as a carrier or for making cosmetics and aromatherapy blends.
