Kalahari Melon oil (or Citrillus Lanatus, if you prefer its botanical name) is a highly beneficial oil, indigenous to South Africa. The essential oil is derived from the Kalahari melon which grows in the Kalahari Dessert. Kalahari oil is also known as Ootanga Oil or Wild Watermelon Oil.

This miracle-working oil has many benefits; we’ve shared a few of them below:

  1. For Your Hair

Kalahari Melon oil has been referred to as thebest kept haircare secret. The high level of omega-six essential fatty acids found in this natural oil aid in strengthening and caring for your hair. An added benefit of Kalahari Melon oil is that it helps to make your hair look extra shiny without any greasy after-feel.

There are many different ways that the oil can be applied to your hair. Some of the most popular methods include either blending it into your conditioner or to massage it directly into your hair. The oil has the added benefit of helping to reduce frizz and protect your hair from the damage often associated with heat styling.  

  1. For Your Skin

Kalahari Melon oil is also a very good source of Vitamin E, as it has a high phytosterol content. The polyunsaturated linoleic acid it contains also allows the oil to soak into the skin more easily.

The oil especially helps protect your skin from the negative effects of hot, dry climates. It is also widely known for its anti-aging qualities, as it is able to penetrate deeply into the skin. As a result, it reaches the dermal layers of the skin, effectively increasing its elasticity.

Scatters Oils’ Kalahari Melon oil is an indigenous oil that is wild grown and non-sprayed. We’re dedicated to providing you with the best oil to  meet your unique hair and skin needs. For more information, click here.

African essential oils have become very popular in South Africa. We have all come to know and love the many wonderful benefits of these oils. As organic essential oil suppliers, we love supporting our community with the best tips and tricks for optimal use, to ensure you reap all the wonderful benefits from these oils.

We know that you have done extensive research on the health benefits of the essential oil you want or need. You’ve bought your essential oils, and you’re ready to apply it to your skin and to witness all the miraculous results. One step is missing though… the carrier oil.

Carrier oils are very important mediums for applying essential oils to the skin. Carrier oils are vegetable oils that protect the skin from irritation, burning, redness, rashes and, in some cases, other reactions that result from applying undiluted essential oils directly to the skin.

The type of carrier oil you use will have an affect on the therapeutic and health benefit achieved. So be sure to choose a carrier that matches and compliments the essential oil you are coupling it with (we’ll help you identify the right solution and supply it too).

It is essential that you choose a high-quality carrier oil that will not negatively impact or lessen the beneficial qualities of the essential oil. A good quality carrier oil will enhance the benefits of the essential oil and allow your skin to absorb it, free from irritation and complications. This ensures a pleasurable and favourable experience.

We offer a wide range of carrier oils that are all naturally produced, using no chemical refining processes. Visit www.scattersoils.com/products to view our wide range of carrier oils and butters.
