Our Organic Sweet Almond Oil is produced using premium quality certified organic almonds harvested in Sicily.
Almond trees are native to the Middle East, but are cultivated in many regions including Italy.
Almond trees, Prunus amygdalus dulcis, are deciduous trees that belong to the Rosaceae plant family. The trees produce beautiful pale pink blossoms that grow to become drupes after pollination of the blossoms. Although typically classified as nuts, almonds are more properly classified as drupes or seeds because they are enclosed in a hull and hard shell.
Our Organic Sweet Almond Oil is expeller pressed, filtered and carefully packaged to protect the nutritive benefits and purity of this superior quality oil. It is 100% natural. As with all our organic ingredients, it is certified organic by CCOF.
