Almond oil is one of my favorite oils to use for my skin and hair. Almond oil is known for many health and beauty benefits-- rich in Vitamin E, fatty acids and proteins. From my research, I found that there are 2 types of almond oil. Bitter, and sweet almond oil. The type of oil most used, and the one I use is sweet almond oil. Sweet almond oil comes from the almonds that we consume. Sweet almond oil is used on both skin and hair, and has some amazing benefits! Want to know what they are?
Sweet Almond oil is a very mild oil that can be safely used on infants skin. Man, I wish what I knew about this benefit when my daughter was little. It's one of the best oils to use on infants for smooth skin. Try this oil next time after a long bath for extra smooth and healthy skin!
