Virgin Plum Kernel Oil is one of my favorite new additions at From Nature With Love. Aside from Plum Kernel Oil bursting with skin loving benefits, it posesses a delicate aroma that is quite rare in Carrier Oils. The sweet, sour, and slightly bitter scent of Plum Kernel would make it a marvelous addition to all natural massage oils, scrubs, or fresh creams. Though the scent would be unlikely to survive saponification or complex formulation, it would carry very nicely in simple recipes.
To add to its allure, Virgin Plum Kernel Oil is as pleasant to use at is to smell. It contains a huge portion of Oleic Acid, and plenty of Linoleic Acid, making it wonderful for use in mature or dry skin formulations. It has a relatively light texture, and absorbs into the skin very quickly. This makes it a great for use in body oils, balms, and butters. A rich bounty of vitamins A and E top off this amazing ingredient with a nutritive kick.
