General Information on Pure Almond Oil
It is an excellent emollient (softening and soothing to the skin) and also helps the skin to balance water loss and absorption of moisture.
It is further a great moisturizer, suitable for all skin types, helps relieve irritation, inflammation and itching, and is greatly lubricating.
Because the oil does not penetrate the skin overly quickly, it is a good massage medium to use to help spread the oil and essential oil mixture, while still allowing you time to do a good massage before it is absorbed by the skin.
Not only does almond oil help protect the surface of the skin, but it has great value, acting as an emollient, skin soother and softener, while conditioning the skin and promoting a clear young looking complexion. It also helps to relieve muscular aches and pains.
Almond oil is suitable for all skin types, but is especially good for dry or irritated skin.
