PRICKLY PEAR OIL
Meet the Miracle Oil
Prickly Pear (Opuntia Ficus) is a member of the cacti family and is found in various arid and semi-arid regions of the world, including Morocco. Known for its rare ability to organically flourish even in times of drought, the plant has been affectionately dubbed the “miracle plant”…and a miracle it is.
One of the richest and most expensive oils in the world, Prickly Pear Oil requires an intensive and meticulous four days to extract. After separating the seeds from the pulp of the fruit, the seeds are dried and then cold pressed. With each seed yielding only a delicate amount of oil, it requires a half a ton of fruits and up to 60 pounds of seeds just to deliver 34oz. of this powerful oil.
