Atlantic Aromatics Sweet Almond Oil is a rich, nourishing base to which other essential oils are added for use in body massage. It is both colourless and odourless and may offer relief for dry and itchy skin. It may also serve as a good emollient, by lending a soft glowing touch to the skin and balancing moisture in the body.
Sweet Almond Oil is naturally rich in vitamins such as Vitamins A, B1, B2, B6 and E. It is easily absorbed by the skin and offers nourishment and soothing care. Aromatherapy oils like these can be used in vaporisation. This is achieved by putting between five to ten drops of the oil (depending on the size and ventilation of the room in question) in a water-filled burner over a tea candle. Please note that tea candles should never be left to burn unattended. Sweet almond can also be used in aromatic baths, for inhalation and as body massage oil.
