What’s Baobab Oil?
Holding a paramount place in African Savanah communities, Baobab oil has been used by women since ancient times to protect and soften skin and hair. The Baobab tree is a very sacred and long-living tree. It normally lives for about 500 years, but it is believed that some trees are up to 5,000 years old. Its lovely white flowers emit the smell of rotting meat, which attracts pollinating insects such as moths, flies, and ants; thankfully, the oil itself possesses a light, nutty, almost floral scent.
Why use Baobab oil?
