One of the most popular uses of Sweet Almond Oil, also known as Almond Oil, is diluting essential oils for topical use in skincare, natural beauty, haircare, wound care, and more.
To avoid potential irritation or sensitivity, pure essential oils need to be diluted before you can apply them to your skin. Diluting with carrier oils also prevents the oils from evaporating too quickly and losing their therapeutic benefits due to early oxidation.
By using essential almond oil to dilute other essential oils and blends, you can absorb the full plant compounds in the essential oils without skin irritation or inflammation. Diluting with carrier oils like carrier oil almond also makes oils safer to use on children and certain pets.
Almond Carrier Oil also helps you get more applications from every bottle of essential oil. When it comes to essential oils, remember that a little goes a long way! Using undiluted, pure essential oils or blends does not mean you’ll receive more benefits or see faster results. Always dilute with carrier oils, like sweet almond carrier oil, to ensure your safety.
