Plant Therapy Cold Pressed Apricot Oil

If you’re looking for a lightweight carrier oil to incorporate into your aromatherapy or skincare practices, apricot kernel oil may be exactly what you need. 

Apricot kernel oil is extracted from — you guessed it — the kernel that lies inside apricot pits. This oil is extracted using a cold-pressing process and then refined. It has a fatty acid profile similar to sweet almond oil. It’s rich in oleic and linoleum acid, as well as vitamins A, C, and E. It also contains anti-inflammatory phytosterols. 

  • Botanical Name: Prunus armeniaca
  • Extraction Method: Cold pressed from apricot kernels and then refined
  • Aromatic Scent: Apricot Kernel carrier oil has very little scent, characteristic of most carrier oils
  • Consistency: Typical of many carrier oils

Because apricot kernel oil is so lightweight, it’s one of the most popular oils in skincare — particularly facial care. You can use it as your primary nourishing facial oil, or even as a cleansing oil to remove makeup. It is safe for sensitive skin, doesn’t clog pores, and absorbs very quickly. 

Apricot kernel oil is particularly helpful for dry, mature skin and sensitive skin types. It’s mild yet highly moisturizing and is rich in antioxidants that fight free radical damage in the skin. This action can work to help reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and other visible signs of aging in the skin. Because it is so mild, you can even use this oil on irritated, itchy, reddened skin.

Suggested Use: Topical – Use at full strength as a carrier oil or as an ingredient in aromatherapy projects. 

Quick Recipe for Haircare

Rub several drops of Apricot Kernel Oil between your palms and massage into desired areas. For dry hair, place several drops into the palm of your hand and work into hair strands. 

Cautions: Do not use this oil if you have tree nut allergies. Keep out of the reach of children. For external use only.
