PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A clear to pale yellow oil with only a slight aroma that is extracted from the organically grown ripe seed kernels of the Sweet Almond Tree.

  • Heat stable so can be used in Stage 1 (fat stage) when making creams and lotions.
Sweet Almond Oil blends well with all other vegetable oils and works very well with Beeswax and Rice Bran Wax when making balms and ointments.
 
For itchy skin, combine Sweet Almond Oil with Chickweed Oil, Marshmallow Root Oil, Comfrey Oil or St. John’s Wort Oil.

HOW TO USE IT

Skin Care
  • Sweet Almond Oil is effective on dry skin. Use it in products for dry skin but it is suitable for all skin types, including eczema prone and psoriasis prone skin.
  • It contains glucosides, minerals and Vitamins A, B1, B2, B6 and E as well as plant sterols. This makes it a very nutritious and functional oil for all skin types.
  • Sweet Almond Oil is very protective on the skin.
  • Blend it with drier oils like Rosehip Seed Oil and Chia Seed Oil if using it on oily skin.
  • It is commonly used for massage. It gives good lubrication and does not sink in too fast. Ideal to use in body wraps and scrubs that need some slip and slide.
  • Sweet Almond Oil is excellent to use in baby care as just a few drops will go a long way. Use in gels, creams and lotions.
  • An excellent choice to use on dry skin in daily use creams and lotions.
  • It is also effective to use in balms and ointments. It softens the skin and any wound crusts keeping the skin more flexible.
  • It does absorb UV rays so has a natural Sun Protection Factor but it should not be used on its own for this purpose as the SPF is not high enough.
Hair Care
  • Sweet Almond Oil promotes moisture retention in the hair and stimulates the growth of thicker, longer, stronger hair.

A really lovely base oil.

I am using the oil to experiment with, combining with calendula and a variety of herbs. I am using it all the time and am truly pleased with how it performs and feels on the skin. I will certainly re-order.
