Pure Organic Sweet Almond Oil (Prunus amygdalus dulcis) is a great vegetable oil that is one of the most used carrier oils in Aromatherapy massage. A member of the Rosaceae family and a relative of the Peach and Apricot, the Almond tree is native to Barbary but cultivated in the Mediterranean and California. It bears soft cream blossoms with yellow centres, which appear before the leaves. Sweet Almond Oil is obtained from the dried kernels of the almond tree – this is the most widely used carrier oil. For external use only. Not to be used by individuals who suffer from a nut allergy.
