Almond oil: The ‘Miracle oil’ used for your skin, hair and sex
You may have heard about the amazing health benefits of almonds, but what about almond oil?
Jam-packed with vitamins and nutrients, adding almond oil into your daily life is one of the smartest choices you can make.
In addition to being one of the best anti-aging oils, it’s also very good for:
- Reducing puffy bags under the eyes and dark circles
- Skin Whitening
- Hair Growth
- Stretch Marks
- Burn Scars
- Sexual lubricant
- Weight Loss
Almond oil for skin
Sweet almond oil is one of the most effective oils for your skin and will work just as well as an expensive bottle of the latest big-brand moisturizer.
It contains Vitamins A & E that help reduce wrinkles, fine lines, sagging skin, and age spots. When applied regularly, it tightens the skin and closes pores that delay the signs of aging.
For people who suffer dark circles under their eyes, you should know that almond oil is your best ally! Thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties, it’s often referred to as the ‘miracle oil’ if you are trying to lighten the dark circles.
Simply massage 1-2 drops of under and around your eyes (until fully absorbed) before bed and leave it on overnight. Or you could massage the oil in the morning around the eyes and rinse it off after 20 – 30 minutes with cool water.
For maximum benefits, apply the oil twice a day, in the morning and before going to bed. Make sure you wash your face with a mild cleanser before applying the oil and don’t use any other creams or lotions.
If you do this twice a day, then you should start to notice results within 1 week.
Almond oil is also effective in reducing the appearance of acne, and burn scars. Regular application on any scar makes it lighter over time. The older the scar, the more time it takes to remove it.
You could also try mixing tea tree oil with almond oil for acne.
Almond oil for stretch marks
Almond oil is also good for stretch marks that are caused by your skin stretching as you put on weight during pregnancy.
Some women are prone to stretch marks because of their genes. Usually, their mothers got them. If you know that you have a possibility to get stretch marks, use almond oil from the beginning of your pregnancy.
Massage the oil over your body especially on thighs, breast and abdomen areas twice a day. You should also use it after the child’s birth as well, for at least 6 weeks.
Massaging almond oil containing rosemary essential oil and fennel oil is very effective in cellulite treatment.
Simply mix 3 tablespoons of almond oil with 2 drops of rosemary oil and 2 drops of fennel oil and rub the blend into your skin twice a day to increase blood flow which can help reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Benefits of Almond oil for hair
Conditions such as scalp psoriasis often result in hair thinning and loss.
Almond oil is an amazing ingredient to treat hair loss but it needs to be used together with Castor oil and Garlic Juice.
Simply extract the juice from 6-8 garlic cloves and mix it with 1 teaspoon of Almond oil and 1 teaspoon of Castor oil.
Gently rub the blend over the scalp so that it absorbs and leave it overnight for best results.
Apply this remedy 2 times a week before bed and leave overnight up to 1 month to see visible results.
Almond oil as Lube
Most women have used a personal lubricant at one time in their life. During sexual arousal, a woman’s vagina typically becomes lubricated, making it wetter and ready for sex.
But sometimes a woman may experience vaginal dryness leading to pain or discomfort when having sex.
However, many lubricants sold at your local grocery or drugstore are filled with nasty ingredients like parabens which are known toxins.
Dr. Maggie Ney, a co-director of the Women’s Clinic at the Akasha Center in Santa Monica, believes when it comes to lubricant, we should be using edible goods instead of “super toxic” shop-bought versions.
In a Q&A interview with Dr. Ney which was published on goop.com , Dr. Ney said:
When it comes to lube, if it is safe to eat, it is generally safe to apply. If a lubricant is needed, I recommend organic coconut oil, olive oil, aloe vera gel, or almond oil—they are free from preservatives and are safe alternatives to conventional lubricants.
Oils, however, do compromise the integrity of latex, so don’t use oils with a latex condom.
You can also use almond oil for a penis massage which will stimulate the blood vessels, thus allowing the increase in size. Massage should last 2 to 3 minutes if you want to get your troubled small penis bigger!
Almond oil can also be used for:
- Lighten your lips: A few drops of almond oil can make your lips soft and pink
- Ear: Can be used to clear a plug of earwax
- Nails: Can be used to strengthen weak and brittle nails, and whiten nail tips.
