About: Hazelnut oil absorbs quickly and leaves skin feeling satin smooth. Excellent for promoting radiant, clear skin, it is especially beneficial for combination skin types. Extremely rich in Omega 9, Hazelnut oil is a great massage oil, alone or in combination with essential oils. When used for massage, Hazelnut warms the body and activates any essential oil combinations quickly.
