Sweet Almond Botanical Oil


Sweet almond botanical oil has a light texture.  It easily absorbs into skin, and makes a very nice massage or carrier oil.

It can gently dislodge debris from deep within skin pores and follicles, and also  helps to prevent acne and breakouts because of its high vitamin A content.

To create a natural facial scrub,  use a couple tablespoons of fine sugar mixed with a little sweet almond oil, and a drop or two of your favorite essential oils.  This recipe is safe even for those with sensitive skin.

Dark circles under the eyes can easily be lightened.   Apply a few warm drops of sweet almond botanical oil beneath your bottom eyelid before going to bed.  In the morning you can expect to see brighter, lighter and less puffy eyes.  For even more lightening effect, try adding a drop of lemon oil.

Applied evenly over the face, sweet almond botanical oil can also regenerate signs of aging as it renews the cells of your facial skin.

This oil is used as a makeup remover, to treat chapped lips, and to reduce undesired layers of tanned skin.

It is also a great hair conditioner.   Use fingers to  work a few drops through your hair as a substitute for leave-in conditioner.

Because of its very mild aroma, sweet almond botanical oil makes a wonderful carrier oil for essential oil blends.  Its thin consistency insures easy skin absorption for blends.
