Almond Oil – Sweet, Virgin
Almond oil is obtained from cold-pressed fresh almond kernels. It is an excellent emollient (softening and soothing to the skin) and also helps the skin to balance its loss and absorption of moisture.
Non-greasy, perfect for massage
Sweet almond oil is one of the most popular carrier oils, since it is non-greasy, spreads easily and also is great for nourishing the skin. It is a great moisturizer suitable for all skin types, helps relieve irritation, inflammation and itching, and is greatly lubricating and because it is not an overly fast penetrating oil, it is a good massage medium to use to help spread the oil and essential oil mixture, while still allowing you time to do a good massage before it is absorbed by the skin.
Makes Skin Healthier
Almond oil is rich in vitamin A, B and E, which are great for skin health.
- Improve the complexion and retain the glow
- Moisturize deeper and better
- Soothe skin irritation and skin inflammation
- Relieve dry and irritated skin
- Nourish skin, making it softer and smoother

Treat Skin Rashes
Skin rashes are very common in the nappy area of young kids wearing diapers. In adults too, skin may become inflamed from constant rubbing against hard materials, including underwear. Skin to skin friction also can result in chafed skin. This type of contact dermatitis can result in soreness and burning sensation. Doctors usually prescribe zinc-based ointments to reduce the inflammation.
Almond oil is a better alternative to these creams. For one thing, you don’t have to worry about the chemical substances contained in commercial products irritating the skin further. Also, almond oil with its rich store of zinc is as good as any store-bought creams or lotions available.
Application is simple enough. Just dip three fingers in the oil and gently dab the oil on the affected area. Leave it on until all the oil is gradually absorbed into the skin. You can safely use almond oil on chafed skin anywhere on the body, even on baby skin, as long as you don’t have a specific allergy to this oil.
Reduces Dark Circles
If you are looking for a natural solution to get rid of dark under eye circles, almond oil is most suitable. Simply apply the oil before going to bed and allow it to work while you sleep. For optimum results, follow this beauty regimen regularly for at least a couple of weeks. This treatment will help you get rid of dark circles as well as reduce dark eyelids and crow’s feet.
Delays Signs Of Aging
Almond oil is excellent in reversing and preventing signs of ageing by renewing skin cells and invigorating the skin. You can get younger, fresher and more radiant skin by applying almond oil regularly.
Removes Impurities And Dead Skin Cells
The skin tends to look dull due to accumulation of dead skin cells. These skin cells originate due to external factors like pollution, dirt, sweat, etc. In order to get rid of these dead skin cells and brighten up the skin, make a pack by crushing 4-5 almonds, a teaspoon of milk, a few drops of lemon juice and gram flour. Combine the ingredients and apply the mixture on your face. Keep it on for at least 30 minutes before washing it off with water. Alternatively, a scrub can be made using a tablespoon of almond oil and a teaspoon of sugar. Massage this scrub on the face in small circular motions to get rid of dead skin cells and blackheads.
Good Solution For Psoriasis And Eczema
Almond oil helps in reducing inflammation, itching and redness of the skin. Make a mixture by adding 2 tablespoons of almond oil, 5 drops of German Chamomile oil, 5 drops of lavender oil and 3 drops of vitamin E oil. Apply the mixture on your skin several times a day to ease the symptoms and get rid of cracked skin and other skin problems.
Due to sun exposure, many parts the face and body tend to get dark and tanned. To remove the layer of tan, make a paste of almond oil, honey, lime juice and milk powder. Apply the paste on the affected area and leave it on for 20 minutes. Wash it off with water. This will help get rid of the tan and also restore the lost moisture of your skin.
Ideal Makeup Remover
Almond oil acts as an ideal makeup remover as it is lighter than and not as greasy as the other available options. Almond oil effectively opens up the pores and ensures that all traces of makeup are properly removed. Moreover, it averts the occurrence of acne and pimples and can be used for all skin types.
Substitute For Shine Enhancers And Leave-In Conditioners
Almond oil is light in texture and makes a great substitute for shine enhancers or leave-in conditioners for hair. Almond oil has high moisturizing properties due to the essential fatty acids it contains. It is, therefore, especially good for those who have dry hair.
Wrinkles And Fine Lines
Are those fine lines and crow’s-feet spoiling your look? Pamper your skin with a weekend almond oil massage. Getting rid of wrinkles is one of the most known benefits of almond oil. Massaging your skin with this oil will help in improving the blood circulation and tighten up your dull, aged skin.
Heat 2 teaspoons of almond oil. Add 2 drops of Vitamin E oil to it. When the heat is bearable, start applying this oil on your face and massage gently with your finger tips in a circular motion. Continue this process for about 10-15 minutes and wipe off your face with a soft towel or tissue.
Splash water and pat dry. You’re done. This facial massage repairs skin and eliminates those wrinkles and fine lines with regular use. It also moisturizes and nourishes the dry skin.
Leaves Hair Shiny And Soft
Make a mixture of mashed avocado and almond oil and apply it to the hair as a hair mask. Leave it on for about 30 minutes before shampooing it off. This will give you shinier and softer hair.
Reduces Scalp Inflammation
Our scalp is exposed to dust, heat, pollution and chemical styling products, which leads to inflammation. And ignorance of this problem can lead to dandruff, scalp infections and hair fall. Almond oil should be regularly used on the scalp to reduce the inflammation. Due to its high content of fatty acids, it moisturises and softens the scalp tissues and improves the blood circulation. This helps in reducing the inflammation.
Promotes Healthy And Strong Nails
To get healthy and strong nails, massage them with a few drops of almond oil daily. The potassium and zinc content leaves the nails stronger and more hydrated, making them less prone to peeling or breaking.
Long Flirty Eyelashes
If you always dreamt of having long flirty eyelashes then make sure you apply almond oil on your lids. You can simply use an old mascara wand to apply it. Dip it in the almond oil and apply the oil on the eyelashes, just like applying mascara. Repeat it a few times and ensure that all the eyelashes are covered in oil. You can do this before sleeping or whenever you have some leisure time.
For Muscle Aches & Fatigue
Relieving muscle pains and soreness is one of the main traditional uses of bitter almond oil. The same benefits can be obtained from sweet almond oil, but without the poisoning risk associated with the former. Massage this protein-rich oil into tired muscles to rejuvenate them. Aromatherapy uses almond oil to relax knotty muscles.
For best results, warm the almond oil over gentle heat until it becomes nearly unbearable to touch. Apply this hot oil to the aching muscles and massage it in well. Wet a thick towel in hot water, wring it, and then use it to cover the massaged area. Leave it on for at least half an hour or as long as you can. This treatment relieves muscle fatigue by drawing out toxins.
