- Sweet almond oil: Certified Organic Almond Oil is a pale yellow oil that comes from the kernels of almonds. Full of minerals and vitamins such as A and E, it is an all-purpose, affordable oil. Because it is calming for all skin types, this versatile oil is commonly used in essential oil recipes. It doesn't absorb into the skin too quickly, and it can be used without diluting, making it perfect for massages. Almond oil stores well in most conditions, but avoid storing it in hot places.
