Sweet Almond oil is one of the most popular vegetable oils, which is used in the form of a carrier oil or base oil in Aromatherapy. Texture wise, the oil extracted from the seeds of Almond, is a bit oily. The botanical name of Almond is Prunus amygdalusvar. dulcus. Sweet Almond has a very light, sweet and nutty aroma. It is clear with a tinge of yellow. Almond oil is an all-purpose base oil, which is easily accessible from any retail store specialised in cosmetics.
Almond oil is widely used in Aromatherapy for giving body massage. The oil is easily absorbable and serves as a great emollient, by lending a soft glowing beautiful touch to the skin. It balances the moisture in the body. In case of loss of moisture, it helps to restore it. It makes a great lubricant, thus aids in combating itching and inflammation. It is an excellent natural moisturiser that is suitable for all skin types. Owing to the multitude of benefits that Almond oil offers, it is increasingly finding its way in the making of soaps, creams and moisturisers.
Almond oil application is the best therapy for conditioning the skin and reviving its natural glow. It is also known to improve the complexion and give a younger look to the person to whom this oil is applied. It helps a great deal in nourishing the skin. Sweet Almond oil application provides an instant relief, in case of muscle pain. It has a high concentration of oleic and linoleic essential fatty acids. Though, it is mostly used for giving a body massage, but, at times, it is used as base oil and mixed with Wheatgerm oil to give it a longer shelf life.

Excellent for Sports Massage review by Sarah on 07/02/2014
My sports massage therapist tried this on me today and it was suitable. The cream she normally uses was dragging on my skin so this was much better for me. She also said it was better value!

Great quality, rich Sweet Almond oil review by Veronica on 17/04/2013
This Sweet Almond oil is excellent value for money. I never go without almond oil in my house, I use natural oils a lot for me and my little one's too, no other creams or lotions. And I've been buying it, I' m a bit of an expert :)
I can say that i was impressed by the quality of this product: it is a pure almond oil, undiluted, you can tell from the dark amber colour and the lightly dense character, and it smells naturally lovely. Of course, you can mix it with your favourite essential oils. At the moment, i have half a bottle of it mixed with 20 drops of petitgrain, which I use on the body when I want a special, delicate fragrance, and the other half I keep it to use on my hair, which is thick and normally fastidiously fuzzy- not anymore! I rub few drop in, starting from the driest tips and locks, smoothing them downwards. My hair is now slicker, softer, nurtured :)
Thank you mother nature!!! No mainstream haircare product has never done worked this well for me!
Ah, one last thing: sometimes, especially after deep cleansing, if the skin of my face feels particularly dried out, I wet it with lukewarm water and proceed with a quick massage with few drops of this oil. Perfect!!!
