Macadamia Oil Characteristics:

A thick and viscous consistency, similar to Almond oil.


Pure Macadamia Oil is highly prized for containing approximately 22% of the omega-7 palmitoleic acid. This makes it a botanical alternative to mink oil, which contains approximately 17%. This relatively high palmitoleic acid content, coupled with macadamia’s high oxidative stability, make it a desirable ingredient for cosmetics, especially skincare.

Human nutrition research in Australia show macadamia nuts help to lower total and LDL cholesterol levels.

Extraction and Farming Method:

Macadamias are Australia’s only native plant grown in large scale plantations, for mass food consumption, its oil is an additional product from the kernel production. Today Australia produces nearly 40,000 tonnes of Macadamias in shell.

The trees are grown conventionally in plantations and the nuts are mechanically harvested and processed (nut cracking of the hard woody shell). The nuts are stored until they reach the correct moisture content, then they crushed or pressed to extract the oil.

History –Macadamia:

Traditional Usage

The nuts were a prized food by indigenous people for centuries in the subtropical rainforest regions of Australia. Around 1860’s an indigenous leader became well known to white settlers in the southern Brisbane region when he began to regularly trade Macadamia nuts with them.

Early European usage

The Macadamia nut was first eaten by white settlers around 1858. By the 1880’s a small plantation was established around Lismore in New South Wales.

Present day usage

The Macadamia industry is quite important to the northern New South Wales rural economy and is cultivated in plantations. On average, a commercial macadamia farm has around 2,000 trees per property in northern New South Wales.

    I only received this oil today so have not tried it yet. But again I have not found Macadamia oil anywhere else so I am excited to use it. Received A Guide to Australian Native Essential Oils today with my order. A great help to know what all the Native Oils can be used for and for future ordering.😊
