Almond oil had been used extensively for its health benefits and as a beauty aid much before science caught up with the goodness of this seed oil.
Almond oil is a light carrier oil, and very easily absorbed by your skin. It serves to dilute the essential oil before applying it to your skin. It acts as the base for “carrying” the essential oil that is being mixed into it. Compared to essential oils, you’d use a greater amount of the carrier oil to make sure you properly dilute the essential oil.
Mix 3-6 drops of essential oil in a half ounce of sweet almond oil to create a massage oil.
Dilute 8 drops of essential oil in half ounce of sweet almond oil to disperse in bath water to create a soothing bath experience.
Mix 4-5 drops of essential oil in sweet almond oil and add to a warm basin of water. Soak feet for 20-30 minutes.
