WARNINGS – POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS

  • After excessive use, some have reported negative effects on their thyroid gland. Take note, this could affect you… Please use moderately.
  • AVOID USE DURING PREGNANCY. There’s a possibility it could affect hormone levels in your body. Don’t roll the dice!
  • If you chose to cook with babassu oil be warned. It’s basically 70% fat. Use in moderation or you may notice some weight gain!
  • Finally, of course some may be allergic. This is a natural oil after all and skin can be finicky… Always start using any new skin product via a small “patch test”!

WHERE TO BUY BABASSU?

PipingRock.com is where I snagged my jar of babassu. Prices range on PipingRock.com since they constantly have awesome sales… I paid $12 for a 7oz. organic jar. It’s a little more expensive than a good quality, coconut oil, but so worth it. (Cook with it like coconut oil too)

Now that babassu’s getting popular in North America. I’m seeing it pop-up for sale more and more, including on FromNatureWithLove.com (one of my fav place to shop for high quality DIY skincare ingredients)!

CONCLUSION – TOP 7 BENEFITS OF BABASSU OIL

Clearly, babassu should be concentrated on your face or hair. That’s where it’ll work its best magic. Filled with rich, fatty, oil – it goes deep into skin to lockdown moisture (minus a thick lasting, greasy film…)

I’m not claiming babassu is the fountain of youth. If that existed we’d all be buttering ourselves. But hey, every little bit helps- and this stuff will. Although, I will confidently say: babassu has been touted to be one of the best and most affordable skincare oils!
