Apricot Oil

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I was wondering if anyone uses apricot kernel oil in their soaps and would be willing to share their thoughts on it.  I just really love apricots-ha!

 

Thanks!

It's a nice addition, but AKO has about a 6 month shelf life, so I tended to stay away from ones that I had to worry about going rancid (even in fridge it didn't keep much longer).   I have used it in scrubs for myself or my family.  Once in soap it may be just fine, I've never tried soap.

Fancy oils with short shelf lives don’t usually offer much in soap other than maybe label appeal. Many short life oils are quite DOS prone oils which is a total a headache in soap.

Good to know!  I haven't really branched out too much beyond what I can get at my local grocery store.

You can make some really nice serums for your face, or add to lip balm, lotion etc.

I put oils like those in a spray bottle with essential oils and use as a body moisturizer after my shower.🌸
