Sweet Almond Oil

Sweet Almond Oil (Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis) is one of the most popular nut oils used for giving body massage. Extracted by cold process from the edible nut kernels, sweet almond is a mild, lightweight oil, rich in unsaturated fats and essential fatty acids, making it an excellent skin-softening oil. This awesome almond oil is one of the best therapies for reviving the natural glow of the skin. Sweet Almond Oil contains olein glyceride linoleic acid and is rich in minerals, vitamins (especially Vitamin D) and proteins. Since it is a moderately-priced, good, all-purpose carrier oil, aromatherapists often use it as a base oil to dilute and/or extend the highly concentrated essential oils.
The rationale of using oil in a massage is to facilitate ease in gliding over the massage receivers’ skin. One of the most popular (carrier) massage oil is Sweet Almond Oil. A form of almond oil, sweet almond oil is used mostly external therapeutic purposes. It is a light, sweet and slightly nutty oil. Sweet almond oil is inexpensive making it the most commonly used carrier oil by massage practitioners and aroma therapists.
Organic almond oil is one of the most versatile and beneficial elements available. Of the 2 types of the almond plant – sweet or bitter – almond oil is culled from the nuts of the sweet almond plant. The sweet almond’s kernels actually hold the oil and emulsion.
Almond oil is friendly to sensitive skin, since it’s naturally hypo-allergenic and has a mild, unobtrusive scent.

Almond oil is the preferred carrier for essential oils used in aromatherapy and aromatherapy massage. It contains oleic and linoleic essential fatty acids (EFAs), so it’s easily absorbed into the skin. Immunity boosting and anti-hepatotoxic properties help protect the skin
