One of the best, most popular essential oils for skin and hair is almond oil. It’s loaded with antioxidants, polyunsaturated and mono fatty acids, and vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, D, and E. These work together to help you have beautiful skin and to grow strong, healthy, luxurious hair.

What are the benefits of almond oil for my skin?


Almond oil is great for most skin types. It is rapidly absorbed and doesn’t block pores so you maintain a healthy level of moisture in the skin. Also, because it is rapidly absorbed, almond oil is able to moisturize better and deeper. It’s best if applied right after a shower to seal moisture inside of the skin.


Have dry, itchy skin? Almond oil is very soothing to skin irritations and rapidly hydrates even the driest of skin, leaving skin softer and smoother. It has been used to slowly heal dry skin conditions and also cures chapped lips and rashes.

Delays Signs of Aging

Almond oil renews skin cells, which in turn can prevent or reverse the signs of aging. It rejuvenates, leaving skin looking younger, fresher, and more radiant.

Reduces Dark Circles

Simply apply a little bit of almond oil under your eyes before bed and allow it to work its magic while you are asleep. Dark circles will be gone within a matter of weeks!

What are the benefits of almond oil for my hair?


Almond oil prevents drying and dandruff by nourishing your scalp and conditioning your hair follicles. It has a high level of vitamin E, which is helpful in conditioning hair. Just simply massage almond oil into the scalp to increase circulation, and then wash with shampoo.

Reduces Scalp Inflammation

When used regularly, almond oil reduces inflammation. Almond oil has a high content of fatty acids, which increases blood circulation and moisturizes and softens the scalp. This all helps reduce inflammation.

Prevents Split Ends, Breakage, Frizz, and Flyaways

Need to fight split ends? Massage almond oil into the hair to keep them from splitting. This will help fight split ends by locking in moisture in each strand of hair for longer periods of time. When applied to the hair, almond oil will also smooth the hair cuticle which leaves your hair healthy, shiny, nourished, and helps prevent breaking, frizz, and flyaways.
