Have you ever seen an Avocado Flower ?
Yes I should have known that there are Avocado flowers but the only images I have in my head when talking about Avocados are the actual fruit and seed. So I thought I would share this great picture and also talk about this wonderful fruit. Yes, I also had to look that up before I wrote it as I did not remember whether it was a fruit or a vegetable but it is a fruit. I love how that bee is patiently pollinating that flower and bees are a topic for another day.
avocados have been known to be very rich in vitamins A, B1, B2, D, & E and also in amino and fatty acids which is why you may hear that half an avocado a day is good for your cholesterol. The oil is cold pressed from this wonderful fruit producing a beautiful green oil.
But did you know that avocados are also good for you on the outside of your body as well as inside your body?
Vitamins A, D & E are involved in cell growth and regeneration and A & E also have anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. These attributes make avocado oil a welcome addition to any soap product. Avocado is also very moisturizing and gentle to sensitive skin. The richness of this wonderful oil makes it a welcome addition in any soap bar for those with dry itchy skin. There is some avocado oil in every bar we sell.
My granddaughter ate her first avocado yesterday and she thought it was some kind of delicious.
How aweseome- I love them in salads! 🙂
