Hemani Sa’ad oil, also known as tiger nut oil, is cold-pressed from the small tuber of the nutsedge plant native to North Africa. It has a golden color, nutty flavor and many nutritional benefits from polyunsaturated fatty acids, vitamin C, vitamin E, and phytosterols.
Taking sa’ad oil internally may help to improve cholesterol levels due to its fatty acid profile and high levels of antioxidants.
This oil is beneficial for the skin as it is a hydrating oil that can treat dry skin, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, stretch marks, sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines and other signs of aging.
It can be used on damaged hair to hydrate, condition and nourish the hair fibers. However, many people use it on other parts of the body to slow down hair growth after waxing.
Directions for use
Sa’ad oil has a pleasant taste and can be taken internally as an addition to food, or by taking 1 teaspoon per day as a supplement.
Apply this oil to the face and body to treat signs of aging, dry skin and skin conditions. Massage it onto the legs, underarms and other body parts after a waxing or epilating treatment to slow down hair growth.
