Sweet almond oil is a carrier oil obtained from exactly the seed of the almond tree that millions of people have been consuming in its raw form. Botanically, the oil is known as “Prunus Dulcis.” The almonds that possess a typical taste are used for yielding Sweet Almond oil; however, there is another kind of almonds that are bitter in taste, and some other trees produce those almonds. America, Australia, Morocco, and Spain are the leading producers of the Sweet Almond oil with variety.
