Organic Apricot Kernel Oil
This Apricot oil, made from cold pressed apricot kernels, is a light, pale-yellow liquid with a slight nutty fragrance. It makes a wonderful oil for massaging sore muscles and as a carrier oil for essential oils. It is also nut free so if you have a nut allergy, Apricot Oil is a great substitute for Almond Oil.
This oil has a long list of possible uses but my favorite is as a body moisturizer. I place just a couple of drops in my palm while still wet and quickly rub it all over. I like the way it moisturizes my skin without leaving a greasy feeling.
Another way I have found to use this oil is by adding a couple of droppers in my conditioner. It has helped to calm the itchy spots from eczema on my scalp.
Some of the listed benefits for using Apricot Oil are:
For the Skin:
• As a massage oil because it easily absorbs into the skin, and doesn’t leave a greasy feeling
• Removes impurities and dead skin cells while it moisturizes to soften and smooth the skin
• Reduces skin irritation from dry skin and helps reduce inflammation, itching and redness from eczema
• Substitute for Hand and Foot Cream and helps to reduce the signs of wrinkles and fine lines
For the Hair:
• Helps restore shine to damaged and chemically treated hair
• Helps cure dry and flaky scalp
The label displays the USDA Organic and Quality Assurance International seals. The amber glass bottle protects the oil from light and the dropper cap makes it easy to dispense the amount needed. It should be kept in a cool place and can be refrigerated.
This is a large bottle of oil. It comes in a 4 ounce bottle! Wow..what a great purchase at less than $20 on Amazon and it is sold with free shipping on prime accounts. Grab your bottle (or two) of Apricot Oil today!
