Why I Love Sweet Almond Oil So Much


This post is a little long, but bare with me please. It is worth it.

Okay I have made no secret of the fact that I am crazy about Sweet Almond oil. I know many may wonder why, especially since there are more popular oils like Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Argan Oil, Jojoba Oil, Flaxseed Oil, Hazelnut Oil, etc. I do mix these other Oils in my Oil mix but the most important oil in the mix is always Sweet Almond Oil, why? I am sure you are dying to ask. Well relax, the reasons are simple enough and I’ll explain them in my usual, I hope, concise way.

Why I love Sweet Almond Oil

The most important reason to me is the fact that Almond oil is very light and non-greasy, which is not the case with most of the other carrier oils. I have dry skin and want moisture without grease, Sweet Almond Oil provides this. Sweet Almond Oil can also be used as facial oil for cleansing because of its delicateness.

I have to point out that Sweet Almond oil is not the only light carrier oil around but unlike others it is not expensive. Take Argan Oil for example, a very light and effective oil for skin and hair but expensive. You can enjoy Sweet Almond Oil without worrying too much about cost. When whipping your body butter or for so many home-made beauty products you can be generous with this natural oil as it costs less than other carrier oils.

Hair that lack lustre can be woken with Sweet Almond Oil, it promotes shine without Oiliness. Rubbing Sweet Almond Oil into your scalp will rid you of Dandruff.
