The almond tree originates from Central Asia and is commonly cultivated in Mediterranean countries and in California. Its fruit generally contains a single seed, the almond, from which the oil is extracted.
Sweet almond oil has high quantities of oleic acid, which has emollient properties. It makes the skin soft, supple, and more radiant.
Historically, almond oil had been used in several traditional schools of medicine to treat dry skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema. It has regenerating, restructuring, and moisturising properties, and it is recommended for dry and delicate skin; it soothes rough and irritated skin.
Sweet almond oil is a popular all-purpose carrier oil. Widely used as a base oil in massage and aromatherapy and as an ingredient in a vast array of cosmetic and personal care products.
