or 6 weekly payments from $2.67 learn more
Apricot kernel oil is a light and soothing carrier oil that is easily absorbed on the skin. It is specially nutritious for the skin as it contains essential fatty acids, minerals, and vitamins including vitamins A, C, E, and K. This makes it an excellent moisturiser as it can penetrate into the skin to soften, nourish, and heal - especially ageing, dry, or sun-damaged skin. It also serves as an anti-inflammatory which can be useful on areas of dermatitis or healing scar tissue. Very pale yellow in colour with a light scent.
Different essential oils will have different potencies. As a rough guide, we recommend 4-5 drops of essential oil per 10ml of carrier oil.
This product is intended for external use only. Discontinue use if irritation occurs.
Please store all carrier oils away from heat and light, especially sunlight to prevent the oils from going rancid. Our carriers oils and essential oils are bottled in brown bottles to protect them from sources of light which will help the oil last longer. Please note that most carrier oils can stain fabric and linen.
