The Almond Tree grows well in North Africa, Southern India, The Middle East and the Mediterranean regions of the world. Its more scientific name is Prunus dulcis. There are 2 common varieties of Almonds, bitter and sweet. The bitter variety is actually toxic when ingested, but is found in many cosmetic and skincare lines on the market. Reportedly, 65% of that which we put on our skin is absorbed into our bodies via our pores. Organically grown Sweet Almond Oil boasts internal benefits for heart, nervous system and blood sugar related conditions.
At Sweet Life Spa, we only use non-toxic and edible Organic Sweet Almond Oil for its high levels of Vitamins A, E, B2, B6 and D providing amazing skin, nail and hair benefits.
