The Buzz ~ Quick Tips: It's all about the Almond


I have been coming across Sweet Almond oil as an ingredient in some brands of hair care daily moisturizers and oils. It features in the Mega Care Grapeseed oil which I bought recently. Sweet Almond oil is a carrier oil and therefore works well with an essential oil of your choice. 
So, what's in an Almond?
The Almond is called the wonder nut due to its nutritional value. Almonds are packed with vitamins, antioxidants and minerals. It is an effective health building food.
A handful of almonds make a quick and nutritious snack. They provide instant energy. They also go well with salads, pastries and cakes.

Technically, the Almond is the seed of the fruit of the Almond tree. Almonds can either be of the bitter or the sweet variety. The sweet kind is flavorful and therefore a good choice for cooking. Sweet almonds can also be thick-skinned or thin-skinned. Literature also indicates that this variety is good for therapeutic massage use. The bitter variety however, can be deadly if consumed apparently even in small quantities. The cyanide must first be extracted before consumption. Once this is done, the oil is safe for human use.

Cooking with Almond oil. 
Almonds are good for persons who are anemic, as well. An almond is a rich source of iron and copper which work together to boost red blood cells. 
Almonds are a great source of calcium. So it is recommended that pregnant women include almonds in their daily diet.
