A clear to pale yellow oil that is extracted by cold pressing the ripe seed kernels of the Sweet Almond Tree.
- Oil soluble so cannot be used in water only products. It can be used in small amounts in water based gels that will hold it in suspension.
- 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 a soothing effect, combine Sweet Almond Oil with Chickweed Oil, Marshmallow Root Oil, Comfrey Oil or St. John’s Wort Oil.
Be aware that this is a nut oil in case you have a nut allergy.
