Sweet almond oil is a type of carrier oil that is derived from the seeds of the sweet almond tree, scientifically known as Prunus dulcis, through a cold-pressing and refinement process. It is a pale yellow, clear liquid with a mild, nutty aroma and is widely used in cosmetic products, skincare routines and recipes. Sweet almond oil can be abundantly extracted since nearly half of the nut’s weight is oil. 


Sweet almond oil is celebrated for its versatility and numerous benefits for both skin and hair. 

Sweet almond oil is rich in vitamins A and E, which means it’s an excellent moisturiser for the skin. It helps to soothe dry and irritated skin, can potentially reduce the appearance of dark circles and may improve skin tone and texture. The oil’s light texture ensures it absorbs quickly without leaving a greasy residue, making it perfect for daily use.

Sweet almond oil is rich in essential fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals, making it a popular ingredient in skincare products such as moisturisers, cleansers, and serums. It is known for its ability to give you the appearance of nourished and hydrated skin, and can reduce the appearance of breakouts.

In addition to its skincare benefits, sweet almond oil is also commonly used in soap and candle making. Whether you want to enjoy the sweet, nutty aroma on its own or use it to dilute more potent essential oils, this carrier oil is great for getting crafty.

This carrier oil is sometimes referred to as ‘almond oil‘. However, sweet almond oil as a generic term has two types: sweet and bitter. Such are two different sweet almond oil types with different uses and should therefore be not mistaken for the other. 

Sweet almond oil and bitter almond oil are derived from different types of almond trees and serve distinct purposes in cosmetics. Sweet almond oil is obtained from the seeds of the sweet almond tree and is widely used in skincare and haircare products due to its nourishing and moisturising properties. It is rich in skin-loving vitamins and minerals, making it suitable for all skin types. 

Bitter almond oil, on the other hand, comes from the seeds of the bitter almond tree and contains amygdalin, which can be toxic. Because of its potential toxicity, bitter almond oil is typically used for its fragrance in very small, controlled amounts and is not recommended for direct application on the skin or hair. 

Nevertheless, the term ‘almond oil‘ will more often than not pertain to the sweet type of almond oil. N-Essentials stocks high-quality sweet almond oil in a variety of sizes. So whether you want to buy in bulk or try out a smaller bottle, we’ve got you covered. Shop our range today!


Sweet almond oil is a very versatile carrier oil, and there are a wide array of different things that it can be used for. If you’re looking to incorporate sweet almond oil into your everyday routine by mixing it in with products you already own, we have some suggestions for you:

  • BB cream
  • Conditioner
  • Exfoliator
  • Facial cleanser
  • Facial Mask
  • Facial oil
  • Lotions
  • Makeup remover
  • Massage oils
  • Moisturiser
  • Primer
  • Soaps


Our sweet almond oil has many benefits when used for topical application to the skin. When used frequently, it can give the appearance of glowing, moisturised skin. Simply mix 2-3 drops of sweet almond oil into your moisturiser and apply nightly. This carrier oil can help give the look of radiant and smooth skin, allowing you to feel like your best self.


Your hair can also benefit from sweet almond oil for application. Integrating sweet almond oil into your hair wash routine is a great step to improving the look of your hair. When used in conjunction with your shampoo, the oil can help minimise the visibility of loose dandruff chunks, giving your hair a cleaner appearance. Mix 2-3 drops of sweet almond oil into your shampoo and use it to wash your hair.

Sweet almond oil may support the nourishment and strengthening of hair, reduce frizz and add shine. Applying a few drops to your hair can help detangle and smooth out strands, making it easier to manage. Regular use can also minimise the appearance of dandruff.

When applied to the lengths of your hair, the natural ingredients in our sweet almond oil will help to increase the look of hydration in each strand. You can even massage it in and leave it in overnight to wake up with healthy-looking and shiny hair – just remember to shampoo it out in the morning!


Since sweet almond oil is a carrier oil, it can be used with a variety of other carrier oils and essential oils. Some of these include:

WARNING: Although Sweet almond oil is considered safe to use for skin application, always perform a patch test as a precaution, or consult your doctor about this oil if you are allergic to nuts. Apply product to a small area of skin and wait 24 hours before applying over the entire skin.

    Beautiful Almond oil

    Published by Lynnette on 29th Oct 2019

    What can't I say about Almond oil. Low scent, absorbing, great quality, good value. I truly believe this oil is the best oil for nourishing your skin, so when mixed with other amazing ingredients from N Essentials, I'm able to make creams and body butters which are lush, and keep my 63 year old skin soft, supple and wrinkle free. I now have to purchase greater quantities from N Essentials, so I can also make face creams for my daughter who loves them as well.
