Almond Oil: Organic Sweet Almond Oil is a great carrier oil. It contains fatty acids and vitamins A and E. It softens and conditions the skin and hair. It is used extensively in body care products. It stores well. Extreme heat will shorten the shelf life.
Jojoba Oil: This rich, golden oil actually seals moisture in; it’s what helps the jojoba desert plant survive long summer droughts. It is a golden liquid plant wax that comes from the beans. It has a mild odor and is more stable than oils. Rancidity is rarely a concern since it is actually a wax.
It is great for the skin since it has properties similar to our skin’s sebum. It also moisturizes skin without leaving any oily residue, effectively cleanses clogged pores, and helps prevent flakiness when massaged on scalp.
Apricot Seed Oil: Organic Apricot seed oil comes from a source of Somah's in India. A wonderful carrier in warmer climates and summer months as it has a light fruity scent that is refreshing. A wonderful carrier oil for children (or adults) as is can soften heavier scented oils that are being used for medicinal purposes. (like Turmeric or Patchouli)
Apricot seed oil is a cold pressed oil with a faint aroma that makes it an excellent carrier oil. Since it is cold pressed and unrefined it is best to store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Shelf life is about a year. Extreme heat will shorten the shelf life. Discard if it becomes rancid or discolored.
The light texture of this oil makes it a great choice in face serums and mixtures to moisturize the face. It does not leave a greasy coating on the skin. It is gentle enough to use on any skin type. It will rehydrate dry skin and is most useful for oily complexions. Organic apricot kernel oil is rich in gamma linoleic acid, or GLA, which comes from essential fatty acid omega-6. This helps skin maintain the moisture balance.
