Almond oil has been used for thousands of years, and was introduced by Ayurveda more than 5,000 years ago. In India, those specializing in Ayurveda began using almond oil to aid nearly every type of skin condition as well as in relaxation treatments. Almond oil is loaded with vitamins and minerals that are good for your body’s surface as well as internally. Vitamin E is the most prevalent vitamin found in almond oil, and it also contains rich amounts of calcium and magnesium.
