Sweet Almond Oil is pressed from the seeds of the sweet almond tree. It spreads easily, absorbs fast and is a great ingredient for body care and soap – one of the most popular carrier oils. It has a great slip and glide, making it a wonderful ingredient for massage and skin care products. Applying this light, mild and emollient oil, with or without Essential Oils added, is a great alternative to lotion. Commonly used to relieve itching, dryness or inflammation, Sweet Almond Oil is excellent for all skin types. It is rich to the touch and leaves the skin feeling protected and nourished.
WHAT IS A CARRIER OIL?
A carrier oil is a vegetable oil derived from the fatty portion of a plant, usually from the seeds, kernels or the nuts.
If applied to the skin undiluted, essential oils, absolutes, CO2s and other concentrated aromatics can cause severe irritation or reactions in some individuals. Carrier oils are used to dilute essential and other oils prior to application. They carry the essential oil onto the skin.
Each carrier oil offers a different combination of therapeutic properties and characteristics. The choice of carrier oil can depend on the therapeutic benefit being sought.
Natural lotions, creams, body oils, bath oils, lip balms and other moisturizing skin care products are also made using vegetable (carrier) oils. From a simple essential oil/carrier oil blend to a more complex natural lotion, your choice of carrier oil can make a difference in the therapeutic properties, color, overall aroma and shelf life of your final product.
