Karanja oil shares similar properties to those of it's more famous relative Neem though Karanja oil has a more pleasant, nutty odour perhaps making it more versatile for topical preparations. In traditional Indian medicine, Karanja Oil is used to treat dry, irritated skin conditions and to assist healing.

Love this oil! It has a pungent earthy sharpish smell, and works on the skin like a dream, I have used it in antiaging and eczema skin blends with really good results!
