We hear the praises of apricot kernel oil every day. People love this hard to find oil. Apricot kernel is light in color and has a faint nutty odor that is extremely pleasant. We use it in lotions, creams, soap, lip balm, and massage oils. We are sure that once you try apricot kernel, you will love it too!
