Sweet Almond Oil

Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis 

Sweet Almond Oil

Western Asia, North Africa

Sweet almond oil is a pale, tan-colored or colorless oil extracted directly from almonds. It is one of the most common and adaptable oils used for beauty products and massage. Although sweet almond oil is used in a wide variety of products, most fall exclusively into the beauty realm: bath oils, soaps, lipstick, cleansers, moisturizers, and sunscreen, to name a handful. The healthy fats and fiber present in almonds also make sweet almond oil useful in lowering cholesterol and managing glucose levels.

The use of sweet almond oil originally came from the ancient Hindus, who created a paste out of crushed almonds to use as body cleanser.

Given its popularity and adaptability as a body oil, sweet almond oil is used in everything from skin exfoliants to moisturizers. In pure form, the oil contains calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, and vitamin E. These essential nutrients promote softer, nourished skin when applied topically. Almond oil is also included in many beauty products to reduce fine lines, soothe chapped skin, and relieve itching. The healthy fats, fiber, and minerals in almonds are able to help reduce cholesterol, and lower the risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
