Bitter Almond Oil 100% Pure Unrefined Pharmaceutical Grade A
Prunus amygdalas dulcis
Almond Oil (Bitter) 100% Pure Unrefined Pharmaceutical Grade is Unrefined, which means it is in the purest form that it can possibly be in.
Almond trees are native to North Africa and western Asia, but have been cultivated historically by countries that border the Mediterranean. Ancient civilizations like Rome used bitter almond oil as a vermifuge, meaning to get rid of intestinal parasites, and to treat intermittent fevers, notes Grieve. Almond was likely introduced into England by the Romans, according to Grieve. In the Middle Ages, people used it as a laxative and a diuretic. It also was historically used as a cough suppressant. Bitter almond actually may possess anti-tussive, meaning cough suppressant, properties as well as expectorant and anti-inflammatory properties, according to Natural Standard.
Bitter Almond Oil is a very popular oil and is suitable for manufacturers, aromatherapists and massage therapists. It is widely used in toilet soaps and in trade as an exceptional lubricant. Bitter Almond Oil also carries many huge benefits including anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal properties.
Our Bitter Almond Oil does not contain cyanide.
HOW ARE PHARMACEUTICAL GRADE PURE OILS USED?
Pharmaceutical Grade Oils are the highest quality oils. The concentration of their Element is at the highest level that it can be. With the Pharmaceutical Grade Products you are getting the best. The Element of each product will be at its strongest potency making it much more beneficial and making its uses much more effective. All of our Pharmaceutical Grade Pure Oils have met Pharmacopeia standards. U.S. Pharmacopeia Reference Standards are highly-characterized physical specimens used in testing by pharmaceutical and related industries to help ensure the identity, strength, quality, and purity of medicines (drugs, biologics, and excipients), dietary supplements, and food ingredients.
Some of our Pharmaceutical Grade Pure Oils can still be used as Carrier Oils for the Essential Oils. Essential oils are volatile, which means they evaporate rapidly and contain the natural smell and characteristics of the plant. This can make them too strong to apply undiluted. Carrier oils do not evaporate or have a strong aroma, making them the perfect pair for diluting especially strong essential oils—reducing the concentration of the essential oil without altering its therapeutic qualities. When you dilute an essential oil with a carrier oil, you can also control its concentration before applying.
First, you have to identify your skin type. Once you figure out your skin type, then it’s a lot easier to narrow down your selection for oils. Carrier oils can vary widely in their consistency, absorption, aroma, shelf life, and other characteristics. Carrier oils can be blended to change or combine their properties, so you can mix and match until you find the blend that’s just right for you!

*It’s important to note that being on this list doesn’t promise that it will work for your skin type. Our skin will decide which oil it likes the most and remember that skin takes two weeks to turn over so anything that pops up between week 1-2 was probably already going to happen.
