Almond Oil, Sweet
Organic Sweet Almond Oil is a great carrier oil for body and hair.
- Softens and conditions skin and hair
- It is used extensively in body care products. It stores well. Extreme heat will shorten the shelf life.
We absorb carrier oils with our skin as this is our largest organ: the Epidermis. Adding a favorite paring of Essential oils becomes a decadent experience for the skin, immune system and emotional stabilizing hormones. Using almond oil nourishes and strengthens hair and is optimal for treating hair loss and damaged hair. A few drops go a long way to add silkiness and shine & nourish the scalp.
Almond oil contains healthy ingredients like Omega-3 fatty acids, phospholipids, proteins, potassium zinc, Vitamin A & E and magnesium.
Usage Tip by Somah:
HORMONE STABILITY~I loooooove to use an empty bottle of a skin safe, earthy oil and make a 'mini- blend':
5 mL of Almond oil (a tsp)
3-5 drop Clary Sage (ECOCERT) ~as it has a different scent than the Wildcrafted one
*this is very balancing and grounding. For a touch of uplifting add a SMEAR of Ylang Ylang: either will be perfect. It's a strong oil, so a little goes a long long way.
NOURISHING HAIR TONIC~ I keep a "Somah's hair blend" in my bathroom an use it regularly, just a touch, to smooth dry ends. Or give myself a deep scalp massage with damp hair; leaving oil thick on the ends. Let it stay as long as you can. 5 minutes to 24 hours. ADD SHAMPOO FIRST TO HAIR before water and massage in. Then wet hair and wash as you do.
1/2 oz bottle of Almond oil
3 drops Patchouli for nourishing and repairing dry scalp and hair
2 drops Rosemary, verbenone is best but cineol will do; as a scalp soother
1 drop Jasmine, for luster and yummy scent
