Almond Oil General Information
Almonds are one of the few alkaline nuts used in Ayurvedic medicine. They are used to relieve phlegm and coughs and to lubricate the intestines. Called Ba Dan Xing Ren in Chinese, Almond oil has an ancient history with the Chinese as a local anesthetic and muscle relaxer. Almond kernel provides one of the best facial scrubs mother nature can offer, as well as providing skin smoothing properties. Early American settlers claimed that intoxication could be slowed if you were to eat 5 or 6 bitter almonds before drinking an alcoholic beverage. Global production of Almonds is around 1.5 million tons, with a low of 1 million tons in 1995 and a peak of 1.85 million tons in 2002 according to Food and Agricultrure Organization (FAO).

History of the Almond Tree The Almond (Prunus dulcis, Prunus amygdales or Amygdalus communis) is a small deciduous tree belonging to the subfamily of Prunoideae of the family Rosacae. An Almond is also the fruit of this tree. The fruit lacks the sweet fleshy outer covering of other members of Prunus (such as plum and cherry), the Almond has a leathery coat, called a Hull. The Hull contains the edible kernel, commonly called the nut, which is inside the hard shell. The wild form of the Amond grows in the Mediterranean region in parts of the Levant. Almonds must first have been taken into cultivation in that region. Before cultivation and domestication occured, wild Almonds were harvested as food and were processed by leaching or roasting to remove their toxicity. Domesticated Almonds appear in the Early Bronze Age (3000-2000 BC) of the Near East, or possible a little earlier. A well-known archaeological example of Almond is the fruits foun in Tutankhamun's tomb in Egypt (1325 BC), probably imported from Levant.

Recent scientific studies suggest that Almond Oil may help prevent heart disease. Other studies have shown that Almond Oil is beneficial in reducing cholesterol levels as well. The kernel is thought to help alleviate coughs, flatulence, and heartburn. Almond butter is a rich protein substitute for peanut butter and can be well tolerated by diabetics. When Almonds are pounded in water, the oil unites with the fluid, a milky juice-Almond Milk - a soothing pleasant drink, which then can be used as a vehicle in a medicinal preparation in acute diseases. Pure Almond Oil cannot be used for it can turn rancid in a short amount of time, therefore, by mixing the oil it lasts much longer.

Herbalist Culpeper (17th Century) writes, "The oil of both (bitter and sweet) cleanses the skin, it easeth (makes easy) pains in the chest, the temples being anointed therewith, and the oil with honey, powder of liquorice, oil of roses and white wax, makes a good ointment for dimness of sight".

Almond Oil Safety & Interaction Information
Although no specific mention has been seen for this species, it belongs to a genus where most, if not all members of this genus produce hydrogen cyanide, a poison that gives Almonds their characteristic flavor. This toxin is found mainly in the leaves and seed and is readily detected by its bitter taste. It is usually present in too small a quantity to do any harm, but any very bitter seed or fruit should not be eaten. In small quantities, hydrogen cyanide has been shown to stimulate respiration and improve digestion, it is also claimed to be of benefit in the treatment of cancer. You can take to much though, it can cause respiratory problems or worse. Please follow the directions on any product you are using. If you have any questions pleas ask your Doctor/Health Care Proffesional for more information.
