What is Sweet Almond Oil?
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 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. 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!
