What is almond oil?

This amazing oil is extracted from raw almonds. It owes its benefits to the generous amounts of monounsaturated fatty acids, vitamin E, potassium, proteins, zinc, and a number of other vitamins and minerals it contains.

What are the different types of almond oil?

Technically, there are two kinds of almond oils — bitter and sweet. The bitter oil is extracted after pressing bitter almonds. They contain amygdalin that turns into toxic hydrocyanic acid after processing (1). Despite its medicinal properties, bitter almond oil cannot be ingested. This oil can be used for topical application only. Whereas, sweet almond oil is made from edible almonds. This oil is used extensively for skin and hair and for culinary purposes too.

Now that you have a fairly good idea about almonds, why not learn about their uses? So, how does almond oil help keep your skin and hair healthy? Read on.

In an age where appearance is everything, who wants to look like a zombie? Blame it on the harsh sun, dirt, and pollution our skin loses its charm and glow. Covering yourself from head to toe is neither an option nor feasible all the time.

But hey, don’t lose heart for here’s a natural solution in the form of almond oil — one of the many miracle oils that truly help in enhancing the complexion and tackling skin problems. Here’s how it works.

1. Makes Skin Healthier

Achieving healthy and glowing skin is not an expensive or time-consuming task anymore. Try almond oil. It not only clears complexion but also imparts a warm glow to the skin. It nourishes your skin and makes it smoother and softer.

Enriched with vitamins E, A, and B, this miraculous oil seals the moisture in the skin and also improves absorption, thus ensuring the pores aren’t blocked (2), (3).

2. Reduces Dark Circles

Pandas are cute, but having panda-like eyes isn’t cute at all. I’m talking about those under-eye circles that give you a weird and mysterious look. Taking refuge in concealers is no way to hide dark circles. Besides, branded cosmetics cost a fortune.

The solution? Go natural.

A sure shot remedy to get rid of dark circles is to massage almond eyes under your eyes before you hit the sack. The vitamin E in the almond oil will rejuvenate the skin, and with regular use, lighten the skin under your eyes (4). Regular use of almond oil will also reduce wrinkles and crow’s feet around the eyes.

3. Delays Signs Of Aging

Sagging skin. Baggy eyes. Dullness. These words are an absolute horror for us girls. Remember the spooky story of a queen bathing in the blood of young women to lock her youth forever? No, I’m not asking you to take such drastic measures. You don’t need to, especially when you have the elixir of youth handy.

Trust me, regular application of almond oil on your skin makes your skin feel younger and fresher within no time. The vitamin E and fatty acids present in this oil reverse and prevent signs of aging. It not only helps skin renewal but also fights wrinkles (5).

Hair Benefits Of Almond Oil

I hate oiling my hair because of its greasy and sticky nature. I do support regular oiling sessions, though. Thankfully, I was introduced to almond oil a few years back. It has all the qualities that make it a perfect hair oil, with the added benefit of being super light and aromatic. It also adds an intense luster to your hair, making it look healthy.

Here’s a peek into the benefits of almond oil for hair.

11. Long And Healthy Hair

Regular use of almond oil on the hair improves its sheen and texture.

A rich source of magnesium, almond oil prevents hair fall to a great extent (11), (12). No wonder it is used in a wide range of hair care products!

What You Need To Do

Apply almond oil once or twice a week to moisturize your scalp. After you massage your scalp, soak a towel in hot water and wrap it around your head. This will reduce hair fall and improve hair quality.

Back To TOC

12. Gets Rid Of Split Ends

Unhealthy hair is never a good sign. But the dirt and pollution, along with our busy schedules, make it worse. Regular massage of hair with this oil can prevent split ends too.

Mix almond, castor, and olive oils in equal proportions and massage your hair with this mixture. Apply it once or twice a week, and feel the difference.

We all know that all these three oils incredibly benefit the hair as they are loaded with essential nutrients that promote hair growth and strengthen hair. Almond oil specifically has antioxidants, vitamins, and essential minerals that restore and rejuvenate the hair follicles.

13. Can Substitute Shine Enhancers And Leave-In Conditioners

Every time you wash your hair, you could gently massage in a few drops of this miracle oil. It will condition your hair and keep it soft, hydrated, and shiny.

Almond oil’s light texture makes it a great substitute for shine enhancers or leave-in conditioners (13). It also has amazing moisturizing properties due to the presence of essential fatty acids and vitamin E.

14. Treats Dandruff

If dandruff is stopping you from wearing your favorite black dress, it’s time you gave yourself a warm almond oil head massage.

Almond oil effectively cures dandruff by removing dead cells. It also nourishes the hair and keeps hair troubles at bay. We have already established the fact that almond oil is a great emollient that cleanses the skin and removes dead cells. This quality also helps almond oil fight dandruff and keep the scalp clean (14).

A mixture of powdered amla and almond oil applied generously on the hair and left for about 30 minutes, followed by a hair wash, is sure to soothe the scalp and ensure dandruff-free hair.

Back To TOC

15. Reduces Scalp Inflammations

Our scalp is frequently exposed to dust, heat, pollution, and chemical styling products. All of this can lead to inflammation. If ignored, this inflammation can cause an acute case of hair fall and dandruff.

Need a solution? Go for an almond oil massage and see the results for yourself.

Its high content of fatty acids moisturizes and softens the scalp tissues and also improves blood circulation. This also soothes inflammation (15).

If you thought the benefits of almond oil are confined to just hair and skin, you are mistaken. It can be used in cooking too. Curious much? Read on.

We all know the health benefits of eating almonds. However, the benefits are not limited just to the nuts. Almond oil too can provide a multitude of benefits when included in our diet.

Although it is a tad expensive, foodgrade almond oil is slowly taking over the culinary world. Trust me, it is totally worth every buck. Here’s why.

16. Prevents Heart Ailments

Almond oil is loaded with monounsaturated fatty acids. These fats boost heart health and prevent cardiovascular diseases (16). Sweet almond oil is rich in folic acids, unsaturated fats, protein, and potassium – all these have been proven to be beneficial to cardiac health.

17. Regulates Blood Pressure And Maintains Cholesterol Levels

Almond oil helps keep Type 2 Diabetes at bay, restores liver health and maintains a healthy heart (17). It also regulates blood pressure and maintains the cholesterol levels. Impressive, isn’t it?

Regular consumption of almond oil makes the body stronger and helps it fight common infections. It also proves to be an effective laxative and aids digestion.

Almond oil can also loosen stools, ensuring better cleansing of the system (19). Now you know why it is used as a salad dressing!

19. Boosts Memory And Strengthens Nervous System

They say if you eat five almonds a day, your memory improves. Almond oil is even better!

It is a great source of omega-3 fatty acids and also contains a good measure of potassium. Almond oil is known to nourish the nervous system.

Add a few drops of the oil to a glass of milk and drink this every night before you go to sleep (20). Perhaps you will not forget your keys the next time you step out of the house!

Back To TOC

20. Enhances Blood Circulation And Baby’s Bone Development

Almond oil is a great source of vitamin D that is required for the absorption of calcium in the body (21). And obviously, calcium is extremely vital for a newborn, as its bones need to develop and strengthen.

Massaging a baby’s joints with almond oil improves blood circulation and prevents skin problems.

21. Relieves Pain And Muscles Stress

Any massage is therapeutic, and one with almond oil can relieve muscular aches and pains.

Almond oil has analgesic properties that help in easing the pain and stress from strained muscles (22). A few tablespoons of heated almond oil, when massaged into the affected area, almost instantly relieves joint or muscular pains.

22. Promotes Healthy And Strong Nails

Long nails look beautiful only if they appear healthy and not brittle. If you tend to bite the edges of your nails, it’s time to strengthen them with almond oil (23).

For healthy and strong nails, massage them with a few drops of almond oil daily. The potassium and zinc present in the almond oil strengthen your nails and hydrate them, making them less prone to breaking.

23. Rich Source Of Vitamins And Minerals

There is a reason almond oil has hit kitchen shelves across the globe.

Almond oil is high in flavor and a rich source of essential vitamins and minerals. Calcium, potassium, magnesium, vitamins E and D are found in great quantities in sweet almond oil, making it integral to healthy living (24).

24. Has Anti-Inflammatory Properties

We always have this misconception that fats are harmful. However, not all fats are bad. Some of them are essential for our well-being (of course, only in the desired quantity – excess can lead to obesity). And since our body is incapable of producing these essential fatty acids, we often depend on outside sources. This is where almond oil can help.

The linoleic and linolenic acids present in almond oil can help reduce inflammation (25). They also reduce the levels of LDL-cholesterol in our system.

Back To TOC

25. Provides Instant Energy

Are you feeling drained of energy? Just drizzle some almond oil over your salad for instant energy.

Almond oil is a great energy booster due to the presence of manganese, riboflavin, and copper, which help in generating energy in the body (26).

26. Prevents Cancer

Adding almond oil to your food can prevent colon cancer. Almond oil is full of fiber, which helps in proper movement of food in the colon (27).

27. Excellent For Pregnant Women

Pregnancy is a period where everybody tries to give you unsolicited advice. And if you have been at the receiving end, you must have surely heard about why almonds are good for you, right?

Many gynecologists recommend regular consumption of almond oil to expecting mothers. Almond oil is rich in folic acid, which reduces the chances of birth defects in newborns.

30. Promotes Long Flirty Eyelashes

If you always dreamt of having long, flirty eyelashes, ake sure you apply almond oil on your lids (31).

Almond oil strengthens the hair follicles and imparts a beautiful shine to your hair. Our lashes are not very different from the hair on our scalp. Therefore, the same nutrients that benefit the hair on our head can do wonders to the lashes too. The magnesium, vitamin E, and fatty acids present in almond oil make it a great salve for the lashes as well.

You can simply use an old mascara wand for application. Dip it in almond oil and apply the oil on the eyelashes, just the way you would apply mascara. Do this just before you go to bed or in your free time. Watch your lashes getting thicker and prettier with time.

How To Make Almond Oil At Home

32-Amazing-Benefits-Of-Almond-Oil-For-Skin,-Hair,-And-Health5 Pinit

While we can easily find sweet almond oil manufactured by several brands, a few of us would rather make our own oil than trusting what’s available in the stores .

No worries there, we have come up with the perfect process with which you can extract pure almond oil in the confines of your kitchen. Here’s how:

What You Need
  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 1-2 teaspoons olive oil
  • Glass jar
How To Make

1. Take the dried almonds and crush them using a blender. You need to keep on changing the speed of the blender from low to high. Stop the blender every 5 minutes to prevent them from sticking to each other.
2. Grind until they are reduced to a smooth paste. Add olive oil and turn the grinder on again for the last time.
3. Transfer the paste into a glass jar and let it rest for 2-3 weeks at room temperature.
4. After some time, you will be able to separate oil from the residue.
5. Strain and store in a glass bottle for future use.

A Word Of Caution

Just like many other ingredients, using almond oil under certain conditions can be quite risky to your health. We have compiled the most important ones. Keep them in mind before application.

  • Any consumption of oil is good only when its intake is limited. Don’t go overboard with almond oil. Consult a nutritionist or a physician before you consume the oil.
  • It is imperative that you be aware of which almond oil you consume. Make sure you pick sweet almond oil only. The bitter one is toxic.
  • Avoid taking almond oil if you are on a magnesium-rich diet.
  • Using almond oil in excess can lead to Vitamin E overdose, which further leads to diarrhea, blurred vision, dizziness, and weakness.
  • As almond oil carries fat, its overconsumption can even make you gain weight.
  • Many people are allergic to almonds, so check before you start using almond oil.

Takeaway: Use almond oil for healthy skin sans wrinkles, blemishes, and dark circles. This amazing oil can make your hair healthy and shiny. Almond oil has also proved to be effective in curing cardiovascular diseases, inflammation, colon cancer, cholesterol, obesity, constipation, and joint pain.

Wow! That’s a whole lot of natural goodness in one tiny bottle of oil. So don’t forget to add almond oil to your shopping list the next time you head out to the supermarket.
