Hazelnut oil is known for its astringent qualities. Because of this, it is best used for those who have oily skin but do not want to abstain from using oils. We should also highlight that this makes a lovely carrier oil for those of us who want to add its benefits to our essential oil experience. Keep away from fluctuations in temperature, and to not expose to direct light. This form of hazelnut oil is fairly stable.
