Peach Kernel Oil

Peach Kernel Oil is one of many popular carrier oils used in massage, aromatherapy, and other body-work treatments.

It is among the most popular carrier oils after sweet almond oil and grapeseed oil, and is chemically and physically similar to both apricot kernel oil and sweet almond oil. In common with these other oils, but in lower quantities, peach kernel oil (from Prunus persica) is extracted by cold pressing the kernels.

Peach kernel oil is almost odourless - which is an advantage for a carrier oil to be used with essential oils, is emollient, nourishing, and slowly absorbed into the skin, and is said to relieve itching skin, such as due to eczema for example.
