In 2013 Barham Avocados welcomed a vintage olive oil press to Horseshoe Bend and Tim began making avocado oil, experimenting with our different varieties to get the combination and method just right.
After lovingly massaging and squeezing each precious avo for hours on end, Tim has created a product fit for the gods: Barham Avocados Avo Oil. It’s a decadent greeny-gold oil concentrated with the flavours of our carefully selected avocados.
Barham Avocados Avo Oil is a nutrient-rich and versatile ingredient. It has a high smoking point, which makes it a super-healthy option to use for frying. With a naturally deep flavour, it works just as beautifully as a simple dressing on salads, drizzled over a carpaccio or ceviche, or as a simple accompaniment to crusty bread.
Avo Oil not only tastes incredible, it’s also incredibly good for you: rich in vitamin E, A, B1, B2 pantothenic acid, lecithin, and essential fatty acids. With a potent combination of monounsaturated fat and antioxidants, avocados can help reduce stress and anxiety, while nourishing the skin from the inside out.
Its enviable health benefits also mean it is a beautiful natural beauty product, perfect to use as a moisturiser, bath oil and hair treatment. Katrina and Tim use a couple of teaspoons of Avo Oil every bathtime for Daisy and Chester, and as massage oil for little Poppy. It has also worked wonders on Daisy’s eczema!
Try mixing Barham Avocados’ Avo Oil together with a little avocado flesh, lemon juice and salt for a beautiful exfoliating and cleansing face mask. Or simply combine it with a squeeze of lemon juice for a fabulously enriching hair mask.
Barham Avocados Avo Oil is available to buy in the shop, from select grocers, and farmers’ markets.
