4. Notes of Almond oil

It's a good oil to eat or apply to your skin, but when you buy it, be sure to choose almond oil that suits your needs, edible if it's edible, and skin care if it's skin care.
Another important thing is not to buy too cheap oil, but to stick to the quality!
Not limited to almond oil, cheap oil is extracted by high temperature pressing or solvent extraction using chemicals, so it loses its nutritional value and is dangerous!!
So preferably choose organic oil, extracted by cold pressing!
