It may also protect against acne outbreaks, help ease the inflammation from eczema and psoriasis, and delay the appearance of aging skin as it renews the skin cells.

Quick Tip #1: Warm up a spoon in some hot water. Add 2-3 drops of Sweet Almond oil to the warm spoon and drop it into the problematic ear allowing it to slide down the ear canal.
Quick Tip #2: To treat frizz, apply a bit of sweet almond to the palm of your hand. Rub your hands together and then smooth through the hair. Be careful not to use too much or your hair will appear oily. You only want enough to smooth the hair into place.
