Description

Almond carrier oil can be a wonderful choice for nearly everyone, making it the perfect option for those who want a great multi-purpose carrier to use in their projects and for blending. Almond oil is a light carrier oil that absorbs easily and doesn’t leave a greasy feeling on the skin.

 

What is carrier oil?

A carrier oil is a vegetable oil derived from the fatty portion of a plant, usually the seed, nut, or kernels. Carrier oils also have their own different therapeutic properties, and your choice of the carrier oil should depend on what therapeutic benefit you’re looking for. A carrier oil is used to dilute essential oils before they’re applied to the skin. Carrier oils are VERY important when using essential oils because essential oils are never supposed to be applied undiluted to the skin.

 

If you dilute your essential oils with a carrier oil before applying them to your skin, the carrier oil helps prevent the essential oil from evaporating, enhancing their usefulness. That means you’re getting more of the essential oil absorbed into your skin. And the therapeutic properties of the essential oil are strengthened and enhanced by the carrier oil you choose.

 

What nutrients does almond oil have?

  • Vitamin A: The retinol in vitamin A has the ability to stimulate the production of new skin cells and smooth fine lines.
  • Vitamin E: This nutrient has antioxidant properties that may help prevent cell damage and help reduce ultraviolet (UV) damage to the skinTrusted Source caused by the sun.
  • Omega-3 fatty acids: These nutrients may help prevent premature aging and safeguard against sun damage.
  • Zinc: This is an essential nutrient for healing acne or other facial scars.

 

According to some clinical studies and anecdotal evidence, applying almond oil to the skin may have the following benefits:

  • Reduces puffiness and under-eye circles. Because almond oil is an anti-inflammatoryTrusted Source, it may help ease swelling of the skin.
  • Improves complexion and skin tone. Due to its emollient propertiesTrusted Source, almond oil has the potential to improve both complexion and skin tone.
  • Treats dry skin. Almond oil has been used for centuries to treat dry skin conditions, including eczema and psoriasis.
  • Improves acne. The oil’s fatty acid content may help dissolve excess oilTrusted Source on the skin, while the retinoids in the oil may reduce the appearance of acne and improve cell turnover.
  • Helps reverse sun damage. Animal studiesTrusted Source have shown that vitamin E, one of the nutrients in almond oil, may help reduce damage to the skin caused by UV exposure.
  • Reduces the appearance of scars. In ancient Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine, almond oil was used to reduce scarringTrusted Source. The vitamin E content may contribute to helping smooth the skin.
  • Reduces the appearance of stretch marks. According to a 2016 study, sweet almond oil may be an effective treatment for preventing and reducing stretch marks.

 

Well suited as a carrier oil for aromatherapy blends. Also useful as a bath or massage oil; excellent addition to lotion bars, sugar or salt scrubs and balms.

 

When used as a massage oil, Almond carrier Oil can be amazing in reducing muscle fatigue and tension. Since it is a protein-rich oil, it quickly rejuvenates tired muscles and gets you back on your feet faster after that tough workout or anytime you’ve over done it! Try this recipe for your sore muscles: To 1/3 ounce, or 10 mL of Almond Carrier Oil, add 1 drop Lemon, 3 drops Marjoram Sweet, and 5 drops Frankincense Carteri.

 

Nothing is nicer than having a warm bath and leaving with silky soft skin! Add 3 drops Chamomile oil and 10 drops Lavender to an ounce of Almond Carrier Oil, and add a 1/2 teaspoon to your bath along with a handful of Pink Himalayan Salt for seriously soft and scented skin!

 

For use in your Oil Cleanse Method – massage into the skin of the face for several minutes, cover with a warm, damp face cloth for a minute or so, then wipe away residual oil. You can combine with essential oils if you wish, or simply leave it plain.

 

Directions:

Topical only – Use at full strength as a carrier oil or as an ingredient in aromatherapy projects

 

A good rule of thumb is to use one drop of essential oil per teaspoon of carrier oil for a 1% dilution. For a 0.50% dilution, because you cannot measure half of one drop, increase the amount of carrier oil used. If you are unable to add more carrier oil, round down to get a whole number for you essential oil drops. For example, 1.5 drops would become 1 drop. Use the dilution chart in product images.

 

Almond oil is generally considered safe to use on your skin. However, there are some safety precautions to keep in mind.

  • If you’re allergic to nuts, avoid using almond oil on your skin.
  • If you’ve never used almond oil on your skin before, do a patch test before applying to your face.
  • You can do a patch test by dabbing a small amount of almond oil on the inside of your wrist or elbow. If there are no signs of redness, itching, burning, or swelling within a few hours, the oil is likely safe to use on your skin.

 

Please note: 

  • Made from almonds (a tree nut). Although our expert states skin reactions to nut oils are rare, those with nut allergies should consult their medical practitioner before coming into contact with sweet almond oil.
  • Massage therapists: note that this oil may stain linens.
  • Users can expect a shelf life of 12 months under proper storage conditions (cool, out of direct sunlight). Refrigeration after opening is recommended.
