Benefits of Apricots
Typically produced in large quantities, apricot oil is readily available at natural health stores and pharmacies both in store and online. Prices vary, depending upon factors such as how the oil is extracted from the apricot kernel and whether it s food grade or not. If you have a personal or family history of nut allergies, apricot oil provides a texture and color similar to that of the comparably priced sweet almond oil without its propensity for producing allergic reactions. As a rule, apricot seed oil tends to have a longer shelf life than other commonly used oils.
