Brazil Nut Oil Pure & Natural Essential Oil Brazil Nut Oil is cold pressed from the oily seeds to yield a lovely smelling, clear to light yellow coloured oil. The seeds are roughly 70% oil and contain more selenium than any other seed. The oil is high in oleic acid and linoleic acid with stearic, palmitoleic and palmitic acid in smaller quantities, plus vitamins A, E, C and D, copper, zinc and phytosterols. Botanically, Brazil nut belongs to the Lecythidaceae family and is known as Bertholletia excelsa. Brazil nuts are also known as para-nut, castania and chestnuts of Brazil. Brazil nuts are native to South America, found mainly in the Amazon forest. They are also found abundantly in Brazil, Peru and Bolivia. The nut is encased in a thick, brown shell. The kernel features a buttery nut with brown skin that peels off easily. The nuts are smooth in texture and have a sweet and earthy flavor. Brazil nut is a staple diet of the natives residing in the Amazon forest.
