HOW TO USE IT

Cold-pressed sweet almond oil is oil-soluble and inappropriate for use in water-only products. However, small amounts can be used in water-based gels, where the oil is held in suspension.

This oil is heat tolerant and can be used in the fat stage (stage 1) of creams, lotions, balms and more.

Sweet almond oil can be used alone or with other carrier oils.
