Apricot kernel oil for skin is a light, gentle cold pressed oil with a slight aroma.
- It is moisturizing but light and ideal for normal to oily skin leaving it soft and fresh.
- It is useful for balancing hormonally effected skin.
- It is nourishing because it’s rich in GLA (Gamma Linoleic Acid) and vitamins A and E which help to slow aging and reduce lines and wrinkles.
- Apricot kernel oil is also Anti-inflammatory which means it’s great for calming inflamed aggravated skin.
Apricot kernel oil makes a fantastic base for light lotions, moisturizers and facial serums. You can create a light moisturizer using adding beeswax and distilled water or aloe juice. To make heavier moisturizers include other oils like macadamia, olive oil, evening primrose, wheatgerm or sweet Almond oil. Extra virgin coconut oil is another very moisturizing oil that can be added to apricot kernel oil for acneic or irritated skin.
It’s easy to make a very nourishing apricot kernel oil for skin serum or cream boosted with essential oils like carrot seed, borage, frankincense, argan, lavender, neroli or many others to create a special high potency blend to suit your specific skin type and condition.
You can treat all links of skin conditions like:
- Fine Lines
- Red Veins
- Dark Circles
Here is a simple apricot kernel oil for skin serum recipe:
2 tablespoons apricot kernel oil
3 to 5 few drops of any of the following; carrot oil, argan oil, macadamia, evening primrose, avocado or olive oil.
Blend these oils together and apply the serum to your skin as a moisturizing treatment under moisturizer or on its own.
NOTE: You can also make a simple apricot kernel oil moisturizer by quadrupling this recipe and adding 1/2 teaspoon of melted beeswax to the warmed oil blend (should be the same temperature as the beeswax). Whisk it together well, then allow to cool.
