Properties and Benefits:
The apricot tree is the member of the rose family originating from Central and East Asia. The fruit, rich in vitamins is used to produce the pleasant smelling Apricot Kernel Oil. Apricot Kernel Oil is a very mild natural oil, often used in baby products because of its fine gentle nature.
Apricot kernel oil is cold pressed and refined from the dried kernels of the apricot fruit. It is light in colour with a pleasant nutty odour and used in the manufacture of creams, balms, lotions and cosmetics.
Sought out for its high vitamin E content and skin softening properties, apricot kernel oil is known for its ability to penetrate the skin without leaving an oily feel. Due to its moisturizing, nourishing and revitalising properties, apricot kernel oil is widely used for massage therapy and it is used as a carrier oil to dilute essential oils for aromatherapy.
Rich in essential fatty acids like oleic and linoleic acid, apricot kernel oil is high in vitamin A. Since it easily penetrates the skin, it is a good oil for prematurely aged, dry or irritated skin. The excellent softening and moisturising properties is great for the face, hands and hair. Vitamins A & C are good for mature dry or sensitive skin. The apricot kernel oil helps skin retain elasticity, clarity, and suppleness. Crushed Apricot Kernels are commonly used as a facial mask to soften the skin.
In addition, Apricot Kernel Oil helps to calm the inflammation / irritation of eczema and dermatitis. When combined with an equal amount of St. John's Wort Oil, it acts as an anti-inflammatory ingredient and has a cooling effect.
For nourished, soft and supple skin, rub apricot kernel oil on your body daily.

Clay Face Mask for Dry Skin
Mix the clay, cornflower, wheat germ oil, apricot kernel oil and some lavender water until you have a smooth creamy substance that will stay on your face without it running. Massage and/or spread the paste gently and equally with your fingertips on your clean face and neck whilst keeping the eye area clear. Now lie down, relax and leave the mask on for 15-20 minutes. Then rinse it off with lukewarm water and end with a splash of cold water. Pat your skin dry with a clean towel. Finally apply a moisturiser, this way you "seal" your skin to keep the water inside.
