Almond (Sweet) Prunus amygdalus, P. dulcis: Sweet almond oil is obtained from the nut of the tree, which is native to Asia and the Mediterranean. This oil is a favorite carrier oil for essential oil aromatherapy blends, although it s often used by itself for moisturizing skin. The oil has no scent and is a great nutrient for softening and conditioning the skin. It's been known to be especially suitable for eczema, itchy, dry and inflamed skin. Since it contains glucosides, vitamins and minerals, it makes a fabulous massage oil.
Sweet almond oil is widely used in lotions, lotion bars, balms and soap; it saponifies easily and produces a mild soap with very good lather. This oil can be used as a large percentage of the fats or as an oil added at trace. It s recommended that you add just one ounce per pound of fats to the soap batch. Some users find that this oil goes rancid quickly, others feel they have no problem with the shelf life of almond oil. Sweet almond should be stored in a cool place or refrigerated. SAP value: 192.5. INCI: Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil.

Perfectly Light Scent
I use this oil in my face creams and lotions because the light scent doesn't alter the scent of the finished product. It does not discolor any of the soaps, salves or creams I have used it in, but blends in innocuously and discreetly, perfect for any moisturizing application.

Lovely Price, Great Oil
I love this sweet almond oil from Camden Grey. It is a great price and you can buy it in convenient packaging sizes. I use it in all my soaps and bath & body products. It is of great quality and feels so nice on the skin.

Great Value and Quality
I use this in cp soaps, body butters and bath fizzies. It is one of those staple oils you just need at all times. Works great, absorbs in the skin nicely. CG has great quality products and their almond oil right on par. Thanks!

Good price, quality oil.
Love this for my face serums and body lotions. It does tend to go rancid sooner than other oils if not either refrigerated or i just add a few drops of vitamin e oil to it.
