Almonds have a long history, dating as far back as the ancient Egyptians. There is evidence that an almond was found in the tomb of Tutankhamun. The nut is also referred to in Greek Mythology, the Bible and Shakespeare.
Organic Almond Oil is a popular professional massage oil. This super light oil helps the hands glide across the skin and has the ideal speed of absorption for performing massage. It stays on the skin long enough to perform the massage, keeping the skin moisturised not oily.
As Organic Almond Sweet Oil is a nutritious and emollient oil, it makes an excellent all over skin moisturiser. It helps nourish the skin and this helps your skin look radiant and healthy. Being rich in fatty acids, particularly Oleic acid (Omega 9) and the natural antioxidant vitamin E, soothing Sweet Almond Oil is an excellent choice for those with mature skin.
All vegetable oils and fats are 100% fat and are generally high in calories (on average about 120 calories per tablespoon).
Vegetable oils are often used in food preparation for salad dressings, cooking, frying, baking, sauces and marinades. As a general guide, virgin and unrefined oils have more of the oil’s natural flavour and lend themselves well for use in cold dishes. Refined oils generally have longer shelf lives and may have a higher smoke point and therefore be better for high heat cooking, but this varies depending on the type of oil.
Each oil has its own distinct flavour and nutrient and Fatty Acid composition, so each oil may be used for different purposes depending on your need.
Sweet Almond Oil is perfect to use on its own or can be combined with essential oils to make a massage blend. Try this warming, spice blend for an uplifting, soothing massage: 2 drops of Cinnamon Bark (#188), 12 drops of Orange Sweet (#105) and 2 drops of Clove (#183) per 100ml of carrier oil. (20 drops approximately 1ml essential oil.)
Almond Oil can be used an effective facial cleanser and make up remover. Its light texture dissolves dirt and make up, leaving your skin clean, soft and moisturised.
Helps nourish and condition the hair. Combine Almond Oil with Coconut Oil (#203) for a deeply hydrating hair mask. Massage into your hair and scalp, leave for an hour then wash as normal.
Use a mascara brush to apply Almond Oil to your lashes and brows to make them luscious, healthy and shiny.
As with any new product always conduct a patch test before first use.
