You're all going to laugh at this one  Cheesy

I'm just starting to make bath/body supplies for my personal use.  I have managed the easier ones but now I've come to stock up on supplies for oils/creams/butters etc... I've found a problem with sourcing (that was till I tried ebay  Roll Eyes )

I have here some 'almond oil'.  I'm not sure though whether it is sweet or bitter, it was from my local grocers.  I'm worried about this as I've seen all nasty things about cyanide in bitter almond oil since I've been trying to figure it out  Shocked

Is there any way to tell?

Oil is very pale colour and very viscous.

Please don't laugh :p

Aybe their scent is defferent. I have sweet almond oil, and it has a light nutty smell. Like when you open a pack of sweet almond. Maybe i could not even tell that it's almond if i didn't know. Hope that helped. Any latin in the ingredient list?

Please don't be shy about asking questions... that's what this place is about!

Sweet Almonds have a bland taste, so the oil should be light and clear... as a quick test patch test it on the back of your hand... it should get absorbed in less than 30 seconds.  I'd suggest going back to the grocers and asking around for the actual ingredients.  Here is a link with the basic info so you can make sense of the information they give you.


hope that helps!
