I have a wide variety of base oils that I use on a daily basis, such as coconut oil, jojoba oil, avocado oil or even hemp seed oil but my all time favourite has to be Sweet Almond Oil. In this post, I’m going to share with you the 5 Benefits of Sweet Almond Oil.
Sweet almond oil is packed with Vitamin E. This protein-rich oil is perfect for massaging aching muscles after a long day or a session at the gym. For optimal rejuvenation, add in a few drops of your favorite essential oil to give it an extra kick. I suggest trying Lavender, PanAway or Peace & Calming. After your massage use a thick hot towel and cover over the massaged area. Leave it on until the towel cools down. By doing this you relieve the muscle tension and extract toxins at the same time.
Flawless & Smooth Skin
Sweet almond oil is a mild hypoallergenic oil – which means it’s suitable and safe to be used on babies as well. This highly potent antioxidant oil is incomparable to other oils. Daily application of this oil can protect your skin and keeps it soft and supple. I like to add a drop of Gernanium (promotes a healthy skin integumentary system and uplifts the spirit), Frankincense (supports the skin and promotes cell regenration and is known as the King of Oils) or Lavender (calms the skin) into my sweet almond oil face regimen.
Reduces Fine Lines & Aging Skin
Every women wants to know the secret of eternal youth. Sorry to burst your bubble but there’s no such thing as eternal youth but you can definitely prevent and feed your skin with natural products. That’s where Sweet Almond Oil comes in. This oil is packed with vitamin E and fatty acids, therefore prevents the sign of aging and makes it possible to stimulate/renew skin cells which lessens fine lines and wrinkles.
If you have beaten up nails like myself then you should try using a few drops of sweet almond oil on your nails daily. This oil has zinc and potassium properties that help strengthen and moisturize your nails leaving them stronger and less prone to breaking.
Or you can try my Nail Growth Stimulating Blend: Simply mix 3 drops of Geranium, 3 drops of Lavender, 2 drops of Lemon, top off with Sweet Almond Oil. Mix well in a Roller Ball Bottle and apply onto cuticles daily.
Natural Make Up Remover
Sweet Almond Oil is lighter than most oils and it penetrates deeply into the skin which allows it to alleviate makeup or dirt thats pikled up in the pores. The oil has a strong Vitamin A component which reduces acne, blackheads and dirt build up.
Simply soak a cotton pad or cotton ball in the oil and gently remove your make up. This oil is so gentle that you can easily use on delicate areas such as around your eyes. I like to add a drop of Lavender essential oil into my make up remover for its fragrant and soothing properties.
