Almond Oil


It is an excellent emollient (softening and soothing to the skin) and also helps the skin to balance water loss and absorption of moisture. It is further a great moisturizer, suitable for all skin types, but is especially good for dry or irritated skin. Helps relieve irritation, inflammation and itching, and is greatly lubricating. Because the oil does not penetrate the skin overly quickly, it is a good massage medium to use to help spread the oil and essential oil mixture, while still allowing you time to do a good massage before it is absorbed by the skin. It also helps to relieve muscular aches and pains. Almond oil also protects against harmful UV rays. Shelf life is 12mths.

I have a big bottle of the stuff

I use it:
- as a carrier oil for the massage oils I make
- in my bath with some essential oils
- in some of the skin scrubs I make
- to moisturize my face sometimes - I take a couple of drops and massage it into my skin before bed

I love the stuff!
