Apricot Kernel Oil

Apricot Kernel Oil (Prunus armeniaca) is one of the most important carrier oils! This wonderfully light base oil is fabulously absorbent, nutritious and non- irritant. Not only is it light in texture but it is also a rich emollient, full of essential fatty acids – GLA, linoleic and oleic. It contains vitamins A, C and E and is therefore highly nourishing, and gently soothing. It is especially suited to mature, dry, sensitive and inflamed skin (including eczema) and is even safe to use on babies and children. Always do a skin patch test before regular application to sensitive skin.

Apricot Kernel Oil is perfect as a massage base, but as it’s so rich in nutrients, it is advisable to keep it in the fridge once opened.
