Even in ancient times, Almond Oil was considered a valuable gift of nature, valued as a non-irritable, soothing unscented skin oil. The term sweet refers to the type of almond oil rather than a scent. True Sweet Almond Oil is unscented.
Product Description: Almond oil is pressed from the ripe, shell-free seeds of the almond tree. The kernels contain 40 - 50 % fatty oil. Pressed Almond Oil is a yellow clear, viscous liquid of characteristic mild odor and taste. Main cultivating countries of the almond tree are the USA (California) and to a minor extent Spain.
