In addition to being an excellent low-cost food supplement, the powdered avocado stone can also be used for curative external applications and in beauty masks.
Here are 6 uses of avocado stone:
1. To relieve muscle and joint pain
To prepare a mixture to be used in compresses and massages on the muscles and painful joints, soak the avocado stone powder in alcohol for 15 days (use 2 finely chopped stones for 1/2 liter of alcohol and a dark glass bottle).
2. To fight acne and pimples
In the case of acne and pimples, you can use the powdered avocado stone in this way: mix it with the yogurt and make a paste; apply it to the affected area; let it act for 10-15 minutes and then rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water.
3. To prevent wrinkles and aging
To prepare a do-it-yourself anti-wrinkle mask, mix the powder with a nourishing cream or a little water and lemon juice; let it act for 1/4 hour and then rinse, always with filtered water.
4. To stimulate the replacement of epidermal cells
Avocado stone powder can also be used as an exfoliating scrub to remove dead skin and body cells.
5. To moisturize and regenerate hair
To make the dried and dull hair silky and soft again, mix the crushed stone with mayonnaise (the best thing is the use of homemade mayonnaise, certainly more genuine and effective than that of industrial production) or castor oil (compared to mayonnaise, castor oil is "sticky" and it is difficult then to wash away). Apply the compress on the hair, wrap the head with the transparent food film, let it act for 15-20 minutes and then rinse with warm water and proceed with the normal shampooing.
If your hair is sticky, do not use mayonnaise or castor oil, but prepare a mask mixing the stone powder with lemon juice and egg yolk or mix it with hair oils and creams suitable for greasy hair.
6. To fight dandruff
If the odious dandruff has made its appearance on your hair, make a paste made of ground stone and castor oil, rub it on the scalp with gentle and circular movements, cover your head with a film, let it in place for about 120 minutes and finally wash your hair with an anti-dandruff shampoo.
