Contains: glucosides, minerals, vitamins A, B1, B2, B6 and E. Rich in protein.
Uses: Helpful to all skin types. Should be part of a base oil toolkit for dry skin and itching. Especially good for eczema. Helps relieve itching, soreness, dryness and inflammation. Useful against burns and thread veins.
Very lubricating, but not penetrating, which makes it a good massage oil, and protectant. Goes rancid quickly (although Shirley Price says it keeps reasonably well because of its vitamin E content). Can be used 100% strength. If you’d like to increase Sweet Almond Oil’s shelf life and washability, consider adding it to our Fractionated Coconut Oil.
