Almond oil, also called sweet almond oil, is the most popular carrier oil used for facial and body massage because its excellent emollient properties help the skin to balance absorption. It is a great moisturizer that is suitable for all skin types, helps relieve irritation, inflammation and itching, and is fantastic when used for lubricating because it penetrates slowly.

Almond oil is a good massage medium to use to assist the spread of the carrier oil and essential oil mixture, while still allowing you time to do a good massage before it is absorbed by the skin. Not only does almond oil help protect the surface of the skin, but it is a wonderful emollient, skin soother and softener, conditioner of the skin, and it promotes a clear, young looking complexion. Almond oil is suitable for all skin types but is especially good for dry or irritated skin.
