Almond Oil is an ideal carrier oil known for the ability to moisturize and nourish. Great for all skin types, this carrier oil absorbs really well and is perfect for use in massage or in any skin and body care products.
Almond Oil (Prunus dulcis), which is also known as Sweet Almond Oil, is a cold-pressed carrier oil that is comparable to Rosehip Seed Oil in both its makeup and usage. Both Almond Oil and Rosehip Seed Oil are high in Linoleic (omega-6) and Oleic (omega-9) essential fatty acids, which are excellent for retaining moisture and revitalizing the skin’s natural oils. Almond Oil is also high in Vitamin D to help reduce redness and puffiness, and protect your skin from environmental elements. What’s even better is that Almond Oil does all of this without leaving a heavy or greasy residue!
Because of the nourishing components within Almond Oil, this carrier oil is wonderful for all skin types, especially for softening dry skin. It makes a good base for custom face and body care products.
To help you further understand the similarities and differences between Almond Oil and Rosehip Seed Oil, check out the table below

Just as a reminder, carrier oils are oils that come from vegetables, nuts, or seeds. Their most common use is to dilute essential oils for topical application. Most carrier oils have therapeutic properties of their own, yet they do not lessen the therapeutic benefits of essential oils. Instead, carrier oils spread essential oils farther and make them easier on the skin.
Combine ingredients in an empty glass bottle or jar. Apply 3-5 drops of the mixture daily to the entire face and neck.
