Africa’s Best Ultimate Herbal Oil Review

Weekly Cheap Secret:

I love a multi-purpose product. And I love a multi-purpose product that retails for under $2. Africa’s Best Ultimate Herbal Oil is a must have for me. It is a super rich blend of oils and herbs multi-purpose oil. I use it as a cuticle oil, a hot oil hair treatment, and I just use it as a body moisturizer. It is great to have around in the winter when my skin gets ashy and itchy. It’s an oil so yep, it’s greasy. I love oils. Nothing makes my skin feel better. And the oil medium makes me feel like a goddess anointing my body.

It has a slightly powdery fragrance that reminds me a bit of Egyptian musk or a headshop musk oil blend. The scent doesn’t bother me but I could see it bothering others. It blends nicely with the musk oils that I own, ranging from no-name oil blends and Tom Ford Private Collection Musks.

Oh, yeah. I do use this an occasional hot oil treatment for my hair by applying a bit to a microwave safe dish and microwaving and the applying to my hair and rinsing it out. And I use it for those beachy, tousled waves. I add about 1/10 of this oil to a spray bottle filled with water. I shake it and spray onto damp hair. I either braid it or do a pin-curl variation and let it air-dry. I then get the perfect beachy waves.

An 8 oz. plastic bottle goes for $1.99 and it can be bought at most drugstores and Target. And since it is an oil, a little bit goes a long way so this is an incredible deal. I seriously can’t get over the price and what is in this stuff. Ingredients include: walnut seed oil, sweet almond oil, sesame seed oil, olive oil, carrot seed oil, ginseng, comfrey and tons of other natural ingredients. This stuff would retail for like $50 if Aveda marketed it. But, people are stupid. You don’t have to be stupid.

  1. I am wondering if this product has an expiration date. I have had mine for about 3-4 yrs and I have read a few things online. There is no visible date on the bottle and it still smells awesome just like it did when I first bought it.

    1. I don’t know if it does. But, it’s an oil base and has fragrances, so I like to think of it as a perfume. I think if it is kept out of humidity and direct sunlight that it should keep its fragrance and not go “bad”. We still have oil-based perfumes from ancient Egypt. 😉
