Sweet Almond Oil Skin and Hair Benefits - Koils by Nature

Anyone who's been on a diet knows almonds are one of your top ‘to-eat’ ingredients. But how about the benefits of almond oil when applied topically to skin and hair? Things just got a little bit more interesting…


Sweet almond oil has an abundance of health benefits for the skin and hair. Many believe it can prevent hair loss, aid shine to hair, tone the skin, cleanse the skin, and when ingested it also has several internal health benefits. But what is almond oil? How can you use almond oil? And what are the almond oil benefits for skin and hair? 


Let’s get learning!


What is Sweet Almond Oil?

Sweet almond oil is extracted from sweet almonds through a distillation process. In some cases it can be extracted from an almond kernel press. And yes, there is a difference between sweet almond oil and your regular almond oil. Sweet almond oil is the oil that is commonly found in cosmetics for its hair and skin benefits. 


This essential oil contains an abundance of monounsaturated, and polyunsaturated fats and fatty acids. It also contains vitamin E, vitamin A (retinol), magnesium and zinc. All these vitamins and minerals aid in strengthening and hydrating the skin and hair. Sweet almond oil works great as a carrier oil when mixed with higher note essential oils or argan oil, and hydrates all hair types and skin types. 


How your hair will benefit from sweet almond oil

As we mentioned, all hair types will benefit from sweet almond oil. 


1.Sweet almond oil has the power to seal in moisture, which is especially important for those of us with curly or coily hair. While a leave-in conditioner should hydrate and nourish the hair, for those of us with drier hair types, you’ll need butter or oil to use alongside your natural leave-in conditioner to really penetrate the hair cuticle and seal in that moisture. 


2.Rumor has it, sweet almond oil can prevent hair loss.The zinc and magnesium found in almond oil strengthens the hair follicle and hair, preventing breakage and excess hair loss. Clogged or weak hair follicles is what leads to hair loss, but when the hair follicles are clear and strong, the hair can grow more voluminous and strong. The vitamin E in almond oil is a part of what keeps the hair follicles in a healthy state. 


3.Treats dandruff. Massaging slightly heated sweet almond oil onto the scalp and then washing off with an all natural shampoo can hydrate the scalp and clear away dandruff. Massaging the scalp will also increase blood flow to the scalp and improve circulation keeping both your scalp and hair in a healthier state. 


  1. Adds luster and shine to hair- the vitamins and protein found in sweet almond oil have the power to bring the hair back to life, especially when hair appears dull and lackluster. Apply Koils by Nature’s Sweet Almond Oil butter after using our all natural leave-in conditioner for softer curls and coils. 


How your skin will benefit from sweet almond oil

Chances are, the essential oils which hydrate the hair, will also safely moisturize the skin as well, what a package deal! 


Replenishes dry skin- the fatty acids and vitamin E found in almond oil will work at hydrating the skin, healing cracked skin around the heels and elbows and soothes dryness. Using a natural body butter which contains almond oil, or applying it directly onto the dry areas of the skin and face can rehydrate and repair the dry, sometimes painful area. 


Soothes puffy eyes and dark circles- dabbing on a few drops of sweet almond oil under the eyes before bed can reduce puffiness and dark circles throughout the day. Rubbing the oil in with small gentle circles will trigger blood flow and soothe puffy eyes or dark circles. Living with nature just got a little easier! 


Our final thoughts on sweet almond oil

Besides for being a nutritious nut to include in your daily diet, the oil of this nut should also become a staple in your medicine cabinet! Why? Well, because of all the awesome benefits mentioned above. The vitamins, fatty acids and minerals found in sweet almond oil make it the perfect oil to soothe and hydrate both the skin and hair, in any climate, during any season!
