Sweet Almond Oil

I recently purchased some Almond Oil for my skin and hair. It's a natural moisturizer and is often used for aromatherapy and massage. Here's some more information about almond oil...

Almond oil has become one of the most popular vegetable oils due to its many uses. However, there are two types of almond oil: sweet and bitter almond oil. Bitter almond oil is extracted from the bitter almond plant, and can actually be quite harmful so consumption is not recommended. Sweet almond oil on the other hand has some wonderful applications and has become more and more popular in the beauty industry. Extracted from the sweet almond seed, almond oil can do wonders for our skin, health and even our hair.

Skin Emollient:
Almond oil is rich in vitamins A, B1, B2, B6 and E, and as a result is great for the skin. Almond oil acts to balance the moisture in our skin and helps to nourish the skin. It is easily absorbed and is most effective for combating dry and irritated skin. Also, almond oil has a fine texture, so as a result it will not leave your skin feeling greasy or block your pores. As a result of its moisturizing qualities, it is now being used in many soaps and moisturizers. It’s great for the complexion and can even help with the removal of dark circles under your eyes.

Healthy Hair:
Almond oil’s properties even extend to having benefits for our hair. Massaging a few drops of almond oil into your scalp adds a healthy glow to your hair. Also, it helps make your hair stronger, thicker, and adds shine as well as nourishing and smoothing hair cuticles. Almond oil has also been known to facilitate hair growth.

I've already used the oil on my locks and it feels and smells great. I can't wait to see the benefits in the long run. I'll be adding it to my skin care regimen as well! I hope this information is helpful/useful to you. Let me know if you start using almond oil and how it works for you.

Inspirations and blessings,

Hi Mica,

I purchased it from a local natural salon in Baltimore. I'm sure you can find it online though!
