Definition of Almond Oil

Definition: Almond Oil

Almond Oil (or sweet almond oil as it is sometimes called) is a carrier oil that is made from warm-pressed, sweet-almond kernels. It has a pale yellow color in its natural state, and it contains strong concentrations of vitamin E.

It is frequently added to emollient bases to help soften and heal. That's why we see it in many face moisturizers, body creams, massage oils, ointments, hair and nail (specifically cuticle) treatments. Just be sure to avoid it if you have nut allergies in food; the oil can cause problems topically as well.

i use almond oil in my hair. i like it because you can shampoo afterwards, and i end up with no build-up and really soft, lightweight hair.

Almond oil is nice, but I prefer jojoba oil. I use jojoba oil on my hair.
