Peach Kernel Essential Oil

Peach Kernel Essential Oil

Recognising which oils are the most beneficial for the skin has been one of the most important historical evolutions in regards to cosmetics and beauty products. Peach Kernel Oil is one of these oils that have long since been used to reduce the appearance of age. Indigo Herbs has acquired a cold pressed Pure Peach Kernel Oil that is subsequently a rare product for its purity. Because the kernels for this product have been cold pressed and not heat treated at all then all the active constituents in the oil have not changed on a molecular level. This results in the best possible oil that can be used on the skin.

Originally from China, the peach tree found its home with the ancient Persians where part of the common name originates. Its spread over Europe is attributed to the Greeks after Alexander the Great defeated the Persians in 300 BC and brought the tree back to Greece. The peach then spread throughout the Mediterranean and now is an important economic staple for many countries. It was the Romans who first recognised the properties of Peach Kernel Oil as a beauty product. They bought vast quantities straight from Persia during the reign of the Emperor Claudius and it has since been used all over Europe for the keeping skin supple and beautiful. In China the peach is considered the most sacred tree in the Taoist religion and has been cultivated there since 2,000 BC. Legend tells of a peach tree that belonged to the gods and only yielded fruit every 3,000 years. Anyone who ate these peaches would be granted supreme health, youth and immortality. The peach is still popular in China today as a fruit that is served during birthdays as a symbol of longevity.

Peach trees like warmer climates but need a period of ‘chilling time’ to survive. Some cultivars can survive temperatures of -30°C but this may result in their being no fruit for that season. The chilling time is very important in the life of the peach as significant chemical changes happen hat help the peach transform and produce fruit. The blossoms of the peach tree are considered very beautiful and significant to Japanese culture and fruiting results after the blossoms have fallen. There are many different species of which are generally split into two categories; freestone and clingstone. These two categories represent whether the inner stone either clings or just falls out. Usually the peach will only fruit after its third year and has a short life span of around 12 years.

Using Aromatherapy in your daily routine is simple, easy and can be enormously beneficial. Pure neat essential oils can be evaporated into the environment and inhaled while products that have already been diluted in an oil can be applied straight to the skin. There are lots of different ways to utilize the pure neat essential oils; these can be made into a room spray or used in an an essential oil burner/ vaporizer.

This is a lovely way to perfume an environment and essential oils are very good at effecting the mood, mind and emotions when evaporated into the air. Adding essential oils to your bath is the best way to ensure the oils are absorbed through the pores of the skin while also inhaling the vapors; maximum benefit can then be had whilst enjoying a soak. Additionally the neat oils can be diluted into a carrier medium. This can be a cream, body butter, face cream, vegetable body oil and bath salts to name a few.

Manufacture Process

This Peach Kernel oil is 100% natural, pure and cold pressed. The cold pressing process ensures that the oil does not reach a temperature where the original form of the oil changes. Heat transforms the molecular composition of most oils and so it is important to keep these intact to keep all the natural benefits of this oil. This Peach Kernel Oil is manufactured in the UK and adheres to GMP standards and is quality assured by Indigo Herbs.
