Almond oil is such a light and gentle oil that it is even suitable for baby's skin. It is rich in oleic and linoleic acids, vitamins and minerals, especially vitamin E and magnesium. Almond oil has a unique consistency and a light and non-greasy feel, yet it is not immediately absorbed by the skin, which means that a little oil goes a long way. Its softening, nourishing and revitalising properties make it an ideal base for soothing massage blends and home-made soaps.
In Greek mythology almond trees embody the princess Phyllis and are a symbol of eternal hope and undying love.
