{Week 5} There's Always 1 Nut in the Family :: What's In It? Series | Smell Good Spa™

A large percentage of ingredients in bath & body care are transdermal. Overtime, those ingredients will enter into the bloodstream.  What's In It? Series is a 5-week series informing you of the ingredients used in our recipes. Helping women (and their families) to live good, feel good and smell good, wholesomely.

{Week 5} Sweet Almond Oil (INCI: Prunus Amygdalus)

Sweet Almond Oil is extracted from the delicate, white flowers of the almond tree.  A native of the Middle East, this nutty gem is a relative of the peach tree. 

Why We Use It:

  • Conditioning Emollient: Rich in oils; omega-9 and omega-6, Sweet Almond Oil is a go-to for conditioning dry, tough skin.  This emollient works double as a humectant, preventing moisture loss. 
Sweet Almond Oil is found to contain more olein than olive oil, making it an excellent remedy for relieving dry, itchy and inflamed skin.

This concludes the 5-week series.  My hope is that you'll welcome our products into your home, and use them with even more confidence.  

Be whole,
