Apricot Kernel Oil is quite similar to Sweet Almond oil in its properties however it has a fairly light consistency in comparison. It's a good choice as a carrier oil in Aromatherapy and is used frequently during facial massages. It contains a variety of nutrients including Vitamin A and E which are beneficial to the skin in general.
Gamma Linoleic Acid (GLA) can also be found in Apricot Kernel Oil and this is useful as a moisturizing agent and to tone the skin. Any dry or chapped skin conditions can greatly benefit from the application of Apricot Kernel Oil and after massage it leaves the skin feeling soft and silky.
