Sweet almond oil is a fabulous base oil, or carrier oil.
Once you have mastered the basics of essential oils it is a good idea to listen to your body, and start creating recipes that work best for you and your circumstances- because of this many of our customers love to mix their own therapeutic oil blends. The viscosity of sweet almond oil is ideal for absorbing and carrying oils that are best used in combination or in smaller quantities- a carrier oil par excellence.
Do not let the fact that it a base oil fool you however. After all, being good at one thing does not stop you being good others. Fushi’s organic sweet almond oil is marvelous for the skin and the hair, and as it is cold pressed and of the highest quality it can be eaten and even used for cooking.
Sweet almond oil for the skin
Many essential oils are just too volatile or sensitive to be used in great quantities, so you need to catch their essence in a carrier oil. Sweet Almond oil is a real all rounder, and perfect as a massage, skin, and bath, oil base.
It can also be used by itself. It has a very pleasing sweet and nutty scent, and is absorbed quickly and easily by the skin without leaving behind greasy or sticky residues. It’s full of oleic acid and vitamin E which are recommended for healthy skin.
In all, sweet almond oil is a fabulous moisturiser whether used by itself or used with other essential oils.
Sweet almond oil as a food
Organic sweet almond oil also makes really delicious cooking oil. As it heats to a high temperature without too much smoke it is great for cooking, and its nuttiness make it perfect for eastern foods. Use instead of olive oil or sunflower oil when preparing flavoursome dishes. A tablespoon of almond oil also brings a nutty flavour and silky, unctuous, consistency to smoothies.
