Apricot Kernel Oil

Made from the seed, or pit, of the apricot fruit, apricot kernel oil is a personal care all-star. It closely mimics natural skin oils, and excels as a moisturizer for dry or sensitive skin without feeling heavy or greasy. It’s also a popular substitute for almond oil for those with nut allergies, and works well as a carrier oil for essential oils or as a base for massage oils.

In the kitchen, apricot kernel oil’s delicately nutty flavor makes it a standout addition to salad dressings and marinades. Apricot kernel oil is also a great substitute for butter in vegan baking.
