Our products have been created to provide you with a simple way to incorporate healing, mind lifting essential oils into your days.
Sweet Almond Oil as a Base Oil
Sweet Almond Oil is considered a wonderful “base oil” to be infused with essential oils. Base oils are usually seed, nut, or vegetable oils that are infused with essential oils and/or other ingredients for easier application. Essential oils tend to be highly concentrated and can evaporate quickly, so infusing them into a carrier oil allows the user to cover larger areas of the skin while still reaping the benefits of each ingredient. Sweet Almond Oil is an ideal base oil due to it’s lighter consistency, pale color, and mild smell.
Beneficial Properties of Sweet Almond Oil
Sweet Almond Oil is ideal for all skin types. It is particularly helpful for relieving dry, sore, and itchy skin. It contains several vitamins and minerals, including vitamin E, which is known to be an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent essential for skin health. Sweet Almond Oil is also high in fatty acids, which work to easily penetrate into the skin. It is also ideal for cleansing, as almond oil helps penetrate the skin to release dirt and dislodge other impurities that may clog pores. Moisturizing with Facial Oils are one of the best, natural ways to care for your delicate facial skin.
Sweet Almond Oil Uses
When infused with essential oils, Sweet Almond oil is ideal to be massaged onto the face and body. Zeeta offers several different blends infused with essential oils and other beneficial ingredients that offer a wide range of therapeutic effects depending on the recipe. My favorite Zeeta oil blend is Clarity, which is infused with clary sage, lavender, and grapefruit essential oils in an effort to promote mental clarity and ground the user.
Zeeta sugar and salt scrubs are another ideal way to reap the benefits of almond oil for the face and body. You can cleanse and exfoliate the skin and moisturize all at the same time, because every Zeeta scrub is created with a base of Sweet Almond Oil infused with therapeutic grade essential oils. No need for lotion or creams or any other moisturizers when you're done, either, which saves you time and money. For smoother, softer skin, use at least once per week — and don’t forget to breathe deeply for the aromatherapy experience we lovingly place in everything we make!
