Product Description
Product Description
First, we cold press the meat of the avocado and we use the fruit that comes from this first press. (Note: The remaining fruit is often mixed with hexane and pressed a 2nd or 3rd time and sold as less expensive oil. We ONLY use 1st pressed oil, not the 2nd or 3rd press, and our oil is never extracted with hexane.) After the meat has been pressed, we chill it slightly so the oil will start to separate from the pressed avocado meat. Next, the mixture is passed through a large centrifuge where the pure oil is separated out from the pressed fruit. It requires multiple passes through the centrifuge to obtain pure oil, but the added time is worth it. Think of the centrifuge like a cream separator. Using a centrifuge extracted process preserves the integrity and high-nutrient content of the oil.

1.0 out of 5 stars Tastes Rancid and has Preservatives, June 14, 2018
Sopranogurl (SF bay area CA) - See all my reviews
This product was not what it claims to be. First, it tastes rancid, even though the expiration date isn't for another year. This may be the bad aftertaste some reviews refer to. Also, I have an allergy to the preservatives BHA, BHT, and TBHQ and I had an allergic reaction. The ingredients don't list preservatives, and while they aren't required to by law, it gives people the sense that this product is better than it is. The paleo diet does not include those preservatives, but this product definitely does have at least one of them in it.

5.0 out of 5 stars I cannot say enough good about this oil!, March 14, 2017
I cannot say enough good about this oil! We use it for our chicken and rice as well as roasted veggies because it is so flavorful. I brush it on the griddle when I cook my homemade tortillas (both kinds) and it makes them taste so much better. I especially like that it has a higher smoke point for sauteing so it is great for browning meats.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for skin applications, July 31, 2018
Have used with essential oils to make a small, easy to carry, rollerball applicator. Also perfect for massage.

When using as a massage oil, a little goes a long way. Provides plenty of "working time" to loosen up muscles. And does not leave behind an oily residue like coconut oil.

Now our go-to oil for all skin applications.

This was very well packaged to protect the glass bottle from damage during shipping. Dark glass keeps the oil fresher longer.

Only area that needs improvement is the screw on cap. Once opened for the first time, the cap will not screw back on tightly and securely; instead it can be turned in endless circles, tightening slightly and then loosening again. So be sure to keep it safely upright.
