You Maybe Thinking: Like what? Give Me an Example!

Ok! Sweet Almond Oil is a perfect example of the bounty Mother Nature has for our health and nutrition. This simple oil comes from the almond (prunus dulcis) tree. The almond is actually the edible seed of the fruit of the almond tree. Cold pressing the almond extracts pure, extra virgin oil that contains the highest potency for maximum health benefits that help repair and maintain the body, inside and out! Sweet almond oil is rich in Vitamin E, B vitamins, and Vitamin K, as well as in many Omega fatty acids. The antioxidants and fatty acids of Vitamin E protect the cardiovascular system and have a positive influence on regulating blood pressure, as well as cholesterol and blood sugar levels. The largest organ of the human body is our skin, and our skin LOVES sweet almond oil! Because it is both mild and hypoallergenic, sweet almond oil is safe for all skin types, including sensitive and even baby skin. Remember the old adage “You have to fight fire with fire?” When it comes to blemishes, blackheads, and acne, sweet almond oil works on that very same principle! The chemical composition of almond oil matches the skin’s natural oil, so when the skin is cleansed by applying almond oil, clogged pores release excess oil and debris to the surface and can be rinsed away gently and completely. Then the antioxidant-rich almond oil protects the natural skin barrier, preventing dehydration and damage from free radicals, harmful UV rays, toxins, and chemicals, leaving skin hydrated, supple, and youthful.

How do I Incorporate Sweet Almond Oil Into My Daily Life?

  • Cleansing: Moisturizing: Before or after showering or bathing, apply a few drops of sweet almond oil to the fingertips and massage into face, neck, hands, elbows, feet or anywhere on the body for cleansing and moisturizing, sealing in hydration.
 
  • Makeup Remover: Sweet almond oil dissolves the oils in makeup, allowing it to be gently removed without scrubbing skin, and leaves skin hydrated and protected from environmental damage and UV rays.
 
  • Acne: Blackheads: To assist in decreasing breakouts of acne and blackheads, massage sweet almond oil into the skin, then rinse with warm water to remove the debris and dead skin cells released by the almond oil. Pat skin dry gently. For extremely oily skin conditions, it is not recommended to leave sweet almond oil on the skin as a moisturizer, and is recommended that you confirm its use with your dermatologist or physician.
 
  • Eczema: Psoriasis: Linoleic acid in sweet almond oil helps reduce inflammation and itchiness, providing relief for skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis.
 
  • Anti-aging Support: High levels of Vitamin E provide maximum support for aging skin, including wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin. The antioxidants in Vitamin E protect skin against free radicals, photoaging or premature aging from UV ray exposure, and oxidative stress, leaving skin more supple and youthful. The Vitamin K in sweet almond oil reduces age spots, dark circles, and undereye puffiness.
 
  • Exfoliation: Create a simple sugar scrub, using sweet almond oil and fine sugar. Store in a jar and use as a scrub to smooth, polish, and hydrate skin. You can even add a few drops of your favorite essential oil for a sensory aromatherapy experience you will love! Citrus oil is great to invigorate you in the morning and lavender oil is ideal for before bedtime for restful sleep.
 
  • Stretch Marks: Apply sweet almond oil to the affected areas, gently rubbing in a circular motion. Sweet almond oil can reduce itching and irritation from stretching skin and may help reduce stretch marks from forming or growing. Bruised skin: Sweet almond oil contains Vitamin K, which is helpful in faster reduction of inflammation and discoloration in bruises and wounds. Massage: Massage practitioners love to use sweet almond oil because it is mild and hypoallergenic for their clients. It also creates a smooth surface for massaging motions without creating friction on the skin, yet absorbs fully into the skin, providing hydration and supple feeling without leaving a greasy residue. For home use, massage sweet almond oil into arms, legs, neck shoulders, and feet to relieve tension. Apply to skin for a more comfortable monthly home breast examination.
 
  • Hair: Regular use of sweet almond oil hydrates the scalp and hair shaft, reduces the occurrence of tangles, split ends, and hair loss, and restores shine and strength to hair.
 
  • Dandruff and Dry, Itchy Scalp: Sweet almond oil helps remove dead skin cells from the scalp.  Massage warmed oil into the scalp and cover with a towel or shower cap. After 2-3 hours, shampoo and rinse using cool water. Dry, Brittle Hair: To add shine, hydration, and healthy conditioning to hair, massage a few drops of sweet almond oil into hair from root to tip after shampooing and towel-drying hair.
 
  • Nails: Put a drop of sweet almond oil on the base of each nail on fingers and toes, massaging into cuticles and nails for reduced breakage, splitting, chipping, and dryness.
 
  • Food: Sweet almond oil can be added to smoothies and protein drinks, drizzled on salads and cooked foods, or even eaten plain on a teaspoon! Adding sweet almond oil to your daily diet benefits the cardiovascular and digestive systems, and supports the health of skin, hair, and nails from the inside out!
 
  • Blood Sugar: Sweet almond oil helps manage healthy blood sugar levels in diabetes and pre-diabetes, lowering glucose levels and providing greater insulin response Cholesterol: Adding sweet almond oil to the daily diet raises HDL (good) cholesterol and reduces LDL (bad) cholesterol levels, resulting in lower systolic blood pressure readings, assisting in weight reduction, and improving cardio risk factors.
 
  • Digestion: Sweet almond oil has been found useful in reducing renal and colon-related conditions and has also been shown to help relieve and prevent constipation in children and adults.
  Now you know that sweet almond oil is great, and you know how to use it.

What Customers are Saying About Sweet Almond Oil - Reviews and Ratings

Sweet Almond Oil Review "Sweet Almond Oil Helps with stretch marks: I purchased this when I found out I was pregnant to use on my belly for stretch marks. I massage it on my thighs, stomach, and chest every night. I am currently 34 weeks pregnant and have gained 36 lbs. and so far no stretch marks. I know that there is no miracle cream to prevent stretch marks and they are mostly genetic. My mother has a ton and my sister also has a few. Neither of them used sweet almond oil as a preventative measure. I still have a few more weeks to go before I am in the clear, but I really feel like this oil has helped to keep my belly moisturized and stretch mark free. UPDATE: My babe is now 21 months old. I am happy to report that I did not get any stretch marks!"
  Almond Oil Review  
"Has Many Uses: I am very happy with this purchase. I've discovered many uses for it. I use this oil on the ends of my hair to take away frizz. I use it as a nighttime face moisturizer. When I apply it all over after a shower the results are amazing. I really like to massage it on my cuticles. A very small amount goes a long way. My doctor recommended massaging almond oil into my scalp because I was losing my hair rapidly, due to an illness I had recently."
Sweet Almond Oil Review  
"Goodbye to psoriasis elbows!: Dry skin and psoriasis don't mix. Since I've been using this oil, my elbows no longer have the tell-tale white marks of psoriasis. This oil is light and absorbs easily into the skin (unlike coconut oil). The trick is to use about half a pump, spread it on both hands, and lightly brush your hands on your skin then after the excess is off your hands, go back and spread the oil to cover more skin; enough of the oil will be absorbed after 5-10 minutes and you won't need to be concerned with getting oil on anything you touch or wear. One to two pumps should be enough for your entire body so this bottle will last months."
