We use almond essential oil in our products for its conditioning effect on skin, and for the nutty, fruity and cherry notes it gives to a perfume. Almonds are traditionally regarded as having some special healing and protecting properties, soothing the skin while also softening it.

Description

Description

There are two types of almond: sweet and bitter. We use sweet almonds (Prunus dulcis) to make almond oil, but almond essential oil is distilled from the kernels of apricots and bitter almonds to make a perfume material. 

Almond crops are susceptible to climate, thriving in sunny conditions such as the Mediterranean, California, the Middle East, and North Africa. Part of the plum family, the white-blossoming tree is botanically a fruit and an ancient ancestor of large stoned fruits, such as apricots, peaches and plums.
