Almond Oil is extracted from raw almonds. It has many benefits due to the amounts of monounsaturated fatty acids, vitamin E, potassium, proteins, zinc, and a number of other vitamins and minerals it contains. Almond Seed is a species of tree native to the Middle East, the Indian subcontinent and North Africa. The fruit of the almond is a drupe, consisting of an outer hull and a hard shell with the seed, which is not a true nut, inside. Shelling almonds refers to removing the shell to reveal the seed. Almonds are sold shelled or unshelled. Blanched almonds are shelled almonds that have been treated with hot water to soften the seedcoat, which is then removed to reveal the white embryo.
There is a slight difference between Almond Sweet Oil & Almond Oil. Basically, there are two kinds of almond oils — bitter and sweet. The bitter oil is extracted after pressing bitter almonds. They contain amygdalin that turns into toxic hydrocyanic acid after processing. Despite its medicinal properties, bitter Almond Oil cannot be ingested. This oil can be used for topical application only. Whereas, Sweet Almond Oil is made from edible almonds. This oil is used extensively for skin and hair and for culinary purposes too.
