How is Baobab Oil made?

Baobab Oil is obtained from the kernel of the baobab seed (Adansonia digitata L.).  This is done by cracking the fruit open and separating the seeds from the dry powdery pulp.  The seeds are first hammer-milled to remove the hard outer coat from the kernel and then the kernel is placed in a screw expeller and cold pressed from the kernel. This is similar to how macadamia or grape seed oil is made.  The oil is then filtered for clarity to obtain a beautiful clear golden liquid oil.
