Today, I wanted to talk about how almond oil has helped me, in more than one way. First of all, hair-wise, almond oil is amazing when you want to do a scalp massage. Once a week, before I go to sleep, I’ll put about 5 drops on each part of my scalp, (middle, left, and right) and just massage it in.I use the excess on the rest of my hair, especially the ends. Then, I put on a silk sleeping cap, (I know weird), and just sleep with it on. When I wake up, I wash it out and continue with my regular shampoo/conditioner routine. The almond oil makes my hair really soft and after I wash it out, my hair is more glossy than usual. It’s amazing!
For my face, I apply it as a moisturizer every night. I just drop a couple drops into my hands, rub them together, then onto my face. I’ve been using almond oil since November, and it’s really helped my face. In the winter, I usually get dry patches because it’s so cold, but with the almond oil, I was able to keep the dry patches under control. Also, I have a couple dark spots, and the almond oil helped ease them up a little. Any little thing helps, especially with dark spots.
Another thing almond oil has helped me with is my lips. My lips are constantly dry, so I have to keep applying tons of chapstick. Because of that, I do lip scrubs at least once a month, and afterwards I apply almond oil to them. I also apply almond oil to them every night, as well. Almond oil is amazingly moisturizing and my lips always feel nice and plump. When I wake up in the morning, my lips are still moisturized!
The last thing almond oil has helped me with is my cuticles. My cuticles have always been rough and dry, and I had decided to go buy some cuticle oil. But when I saw the prices, I decided not to. Come on, $10 for a little bottle for your nails?! I don’t think so. So when I was applying the almond oil to my face one night, I just used the leftover on my hand for my cuticles. After doing this for a couple months, my cuticles are nice and moisturized. No more dry skin around them!
I basically used almond oil all over my face, hair, and nails. It’s extremely moisturizing and lasts a long time. I bought Sweet Almond Oil from Sally’s Beauty Supply, for about $7. At first, I thought that was expensive, but I still have that same bottle. I bought it in November and now it’s June! It’s only half way done even though I’ve used so much of it, nightly!
Do you guys have any essential oils you like to use?
Thanks so much for reading!
