What it does
Sweet Almond oil is bursting with health-giving goodies: essential fatty acids and Vitamins A, B and E. These penetrate the skin, increase moisture and reduce inflammation.
It’s a must-have oil for overall skin health. It reduces signs of ageing and prevents damage from nasty free radicals, which cause your skin’s collagen layer to deteriorate.
Chemical-free, it’s also gentle on sensitive and delicate skin, and perfect as a massage oil or daily moisturiser.
Rich in Vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant, it works to heal sun damage, fade scars and guard your skin against UV radiation damage.
Sweet Almond oil is also the best buddy to your hair and nails, with Vitamin B-7, or biotin to soften, strengthen and protect.
Almond oil is as a carrier oil, and can “carry” other essential oils deeply into the skin. Essential oils are highly concentrated and can be too strong when applied directly. Blend Sweet Almond Oil with other skin-saving essential oils: Lavender, Rose, Geranium or Frankincense.
