Organic Apricot Kernel Oil by Renewalize - Review

Those of you that follow my blog regularly will know by now that I am a huge fan of oils.  I love using essential oils, coconut, argan, rosehip among others.  I make homemade cold process soaps and homemade sugar scrubs.  So I am always using different oils around here for all sorts of things.  One oil that I have not had much experience using until now, is Apricot Kernel Oil.  I have heard that its great for skin so I wanted to try some.  I got a bottle of pure Organic Apricot Kernel Oil from Renewalize.

Like I said, I have read that Apricot oil is great for skin and this came just in time.  I haven't had much dry skin lately now that spring and the sunshine is finally in full swing.  My skin has gotten through its awkward winter to spring transition where it goes all hay wire.  My skin has been looking good lately but I happened to be out doing some gardening in full sun recently and actually got my first sun burn of the year.  I massaged a bit of the apricot oil on my burnt shoulders and after a few hours I noticed a definite difference.  There was a reduction in the red color and my burns didn't feel as sensitive to the touch.  So this definitely helped sooth my sunburn.

I also used this as a massage oil on my feet.  My feet do need a bit of TLC since I tend to do all of my gardening barefoot.  So my feet do get worn and dry and a bit beat up.  Summer time is not a pretty time for my feet.  My feet do get really dry after I come in from gardening and have to do so much foot scrubbing to get the dirt off.  So this made my feet feel great!  They were soft and moisturized which is definitely not normal for this time of year.  Its USDA certified organic and unrefined cold pressed virgin oil.  I will definitely keep this on hand from now on.  You can order this Apricot Oil on the Renewalize website!

I was provided with a sample free of charge to facilitate this review.  All opinions are my own.
