The apricot kernel has been used for centuries for health, and also for beauty. Today, we cold press apricot kernels and extract their oil for amazing skin and hair benefits. Each drop of our organic apricot oil contains moisturizing, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and antioxidant properties. This, as a result, makes it ideal for a variety of skin types and needs.
Use apricot oil on its own as a richly moisturizing face lotion, or combine it with your favorite ingredients for a soothing and also nourishing DIY preparation. Lightweight and delicately aromatic, this oil is also a perfect choice for massaging sensitive skin. Babies, in addition to the elderly, can benefit from its ability to moisturize and nourish without risking adverse side effects.
Our Apricot Oil is 100% pure, unrefined, cold pressed, and USDA Certified Organic. Therefore, you never have to worry about fillers, phthalates, parabens, or other junk. Instead, you can enjoy apricot oil as it should be, in all its pure and nourishing goodness.

How to use Apricot Oil
Drop 4-5 drops in your hands and apply directly to the skin. If you whip it into one of our luscious body butter recipes, apply as you would any other cream. We recommend you use a wooden or plastic spatula or spoon to dip into your lotion or cream container.
Use Apricot oil to treat dandruff, stop hair loss and tame frizzy and unruly hair. For scalp and hair loss, warm the oil then rub on scalp and roots at bedtime. To tame and nourish hair, scrunch into or run over your hair to moisturize, smooth and shine.
As a makeup remover and razor burn protector, drop onto a cotton pad and gently run over your skin and eyelashes, it’s very good for under-eye skin. Rinse or leave in place.
