Love almonds? Many people do and they should since almonds are one of the superfoods that are rich in nutrients. Almonds help regulate cholesterol and are a rich source of calcium, magnesium, vitamins E, D and B and, dietary fibers. But while there’s no denying almonds are packed with nutritional punch, there is one glaring misconception about them. They are not nuts! They actually are the seed of a fruit, which therefore makes them drupes. “A drupe is a type of fruit in which an outer fleshy part surrounds a shell (what we sometimes call a pit) with a seed inside,” explains Serious Eats.

And when it comes to even more goodness from almonds, just consider what almond oil can do for skin.  Among its many benefits, notes New Health Guide, almond oil traps moisture in the skin to keep it moisturized. The vitamins in almond oil help delay the appearance of wrinkles. And almond oil also can help reverse skin sun damage.

Almond oil can be used as carrier oil in aromatherapy. It has a fine texture, is easily absorbed, and helps to leave the skin soft and satiny smooth yet it is non-greasy and easily absorbed.

You’ll find almond oil in BIOTONE Dual Purpose Massage Creme with its silky, non-greasy feel; Revitalizing Massage Oil and Deep-Tissue Massage Lotion.  Also offer your clients to the benefits of almond oil with the following treatment:
