Description: Apricot oil is good for all skin types. It is very rich and nourishing - particularly in vitamin A.

Common Uses: Apricot kernel is a very popular oil and is suitable for manufacturers, aromatherapists and massage therapists.
Consistency: Typical and characteristic of carrier oils.
Absorption: Absorbs into skin quickly.
Shelf Life: Apricot oil is slow to go rancid; users can expect a shelf life of 6 months to 1 year with proper storage (cool, out of direct sunlight). Refrigeration after opening is recommended.
For food grade oil (not Bianca Rosa), 3 to 5 grams of the sweet-tasting oil support the lungs and large intestines with expectorant, demulcent, and nutritive properties.
The apricot kernel, while highly regarded as a source of laetrile, seems to be used only as a nutritive tonic for the lungs in traditional China. It is not recognized for any of its purported anti-carcinogenic characteristics.
One theory states that herbs seem to have a powerful eliminative property when first taken by someone whose diet and lifestyle are characterized by excess, leading to toxicity and immunity issues. In this regard, many herbs could be of even greater benefit to help improve immunity. However, it is best to help support such a health concern with a strict balanced diet as given in this book as the first prerequisite for use and then using other blood purifying herb combinations as suggested in the formulas chapter.

Bianca Rosa® natural carrier oils provide the perfect medium in which to dilute potent essential oils and "carry" them onto the skin and into the body. These deep-nourishing oils provide even distribution and absorption with light and non-sticky lubrication. Depending on the potency of the essential oil being diluted, generally, adding 1-3 drops of essential oil to every 5 mL (1 tsp.) of carrier oil is sufficient for most massage or skin care needs. Massage gently into the skin with a circular motion. Apply as needed or as directed.
FOR TOPICAL USE ONLY. NOT TO BE TAKEN INTERNALLY.
Should skin sensitivity occur discontinue use. Store in a cool dry place. Keep out of reach of children.
