HOW TO USE IT

  • Use 1% to 100%.
  • This product is oil-soluble, so it can’t be used in water-only products. However, small amounts can be used in water-based gels that hold it in suspension.
  • Organic sweet almond oil is heat stable, so it can be used in stage 1 (fat stage) when making creams and lotions.
  • This oil blends well with all other vegetable oils. When making balms and ointments, it also works well with beeswax and rice bran wax.
  • For itchy skin, combine sweet almond oil with chickweed oil, marshmallow root oil, comfrey oil or St. John’s wort oil.

Organic Sweet Almond Oil Benefits in Skin Care

  • Suitable for all skin types but especially effective when used in products for dry skin.
  • A highly nutritious oil — contains glucosides, minerals, plant sterols and vitamins A, B1, B2, B6 and E.
  • Calms, nourishes and protects the skin.
  • Commonly used for massage, leaving the skin smooth and soft without feeling greasy.
  • Ideal to use in body wraps and scrubs that need some slip.
  • Fantastic for use in baby care, with a few drops going a long way.
  • Has its own natural sun protection factor (though this isn’t high enough for sweet almond oil to be used for sun protection on its own).
  • Blend with drier oils like rosehip seed oil and chia seed oil if using on oily skin.
  • Use in gels, creams, lotions, serums, cleansers, balms and ointments.

Organic Sweet Almond Oil Benefits in Hair Care

  • Smooths and softens hair, making it easier to comb through.
  • Promotes moisture retention in the hair and stimulates the growth of thicker, longer and stronger strands.
  • Use in shampoos, conditioners, masks, hair oils and scalp scrubs.

A really lovely base oil.

I am using the oil to experiment with, combining with calendula and a variety of herbs. I am using it all the time and am truly pleased with how it performs and feels on the skin. I will certainly re-order.
