Our organic Sweet Almond oil is unrefined and deeper in flavor and aroma than the physically refined almond oil that we offer.
The organic Sweet Almond oil is a fantastic carrier oil and also makes a superb addition to body care products. When used in soap making, Sweet Almond oil saponifies easily and yields a mild soap with good lather. It contains fatty acids as well as vitamins A and E and penetrates easily into the skin. It is quite an effective emollient for moisturizing the skin and hair. Stores well under any condition but extreme heat will lessen the shelf life.
Our organic unrefined Sweet Almond oil can also be added to your favorite culinary dishes. It may be used as a cooking oil at low temperatures, and makes a delicious addition to salad dressings and dips, adding a nutty flavor profile.
The 16oz size and larger come packaged in plastic bottles.
