Len Price writes that Apricot Kernel Oil is excellent for skin protection, since it is both emollient and nourishing. Its light texture causes it to be readily absorbed by the skin. It is beneficial in relieving the itchiness caused by eczema and is most suitable for sensitive skin or dry and aging skins. I use it as part of my “basic blend” for skin care, and it is one of my favorite carrier oils for mature skin. Can be used 100% strength but normally used at 10–50%.
