Almond oil is extracted from the fruits of the Almond tree.

This may not be commonly known but there are two different types of Almond oil; sweet and bitter.

Bitter almond oil should always be avoided as it is considered toxic.

Lavender oil is extracted from the flowers of the Lavender plant.

It’s used in perfumes production.

I personally use it for relaxation and to deal with my anxiety just by rubbing it on a cloth and inhaling the calming notes.

It acts as a natural insect repellent while boasting a great floral scent.
