Recently I purchased Avocado Oil for cooking. This was a couple months back. Avocado Oil can also be used as a base oil for work with essential oils. This oil is very healing for dehydrated skin. The best Avocado Oil is dark green. It should be very aromatic. A small amount can go a long way. This oil contains protein, Vitamin A, and Vitamin B. This makes it an ideal oil for vegan cooking. A vegan diet has reduced protein. Avocado Oil is one source where protein may be found.
