Almond Oil

Posted by Chris on 12/24/2007

Hi Ted. I'm really interested in cold shower therapy. Is the Almond Oil one uses the same that aromatherapists use? I imagine it doesn't adhere to the body well though - any techniques? Does one use this for hair cleaning too?

Actually the aromatherapist uses the same almond oil that we normally use, but they can also use a number of other oils besides almond oil, which are often used as carrier oil. In my own practice, I don't use carrier oils as often since it dilutes the effectiveness of healing found in the lavender oil and other oils. Oils are not generally used in hair but used in the body instead. The reason maybe because its generally messy to apply to the head with oils and generally difficult to remove them afterwards.
