Description : 
 Nutty-sweet with notes of cherry, our Bitter Almond essential oil is a delightful addition to any perfumer’s aromatic palette. Unlike its cousin the Sweet Almond and the extract of almonds, Bitter Almonds naturally contain traces of prussic acid (also known as hydrogen cyanide) making them ultimately lethal to ingest and a good thing to avoid. Bitter Almond Oil is a colorless or yellowish, clear, thin, and strongly refractive liquid, which have a characteristic, aromatic odor as well as a bitter taste. It is soluble in water at 15° C and in alcohol or ether; also soluble in nitric acid at ordinary temperatures without the evolvement of nitrous vapors. Our Bitter Almond essential oil is steam distilled from the crushed and pressed kernels of the apricot fruit. (it can also be extracted from the kernels of cherries, plums and peaches2), then rectified to remove the toxic prussic acid.

Constituents : Sweet nutty aroma reminiscent of almond kernels, cherry

Uses : Bitter almond oil is used for various purposes like cosmetics, creams and as an essential oil. However it also has some medicinal uses such as, an antibacterial, anti-itch, local anesthetic and muscle relaxant.

Benefit : Sweet almond oil keeps your skin cells healthy, protects your skin from UV radiation damage, and helps your skin look smooth, soft, and free of fine lines. The fatty acids help your skin retain moisture and can heal chapped and irritated skin.

Common Names :  Almond oil, Almond milk, vitamin B-17, sweet almond, amygdalin, laetrile, amygdale amara, almond bitter, oil of almonds, almond volatile oil.

Caution Note: Safe to use during pregnancy. As with all nut based carrier oils, always use with caution on people with nut allergies.
