Words by Anny Schneider

Beyond its high concentration of amygdalin and laetrile or B17, the essential oil or bitter almond extract has been used for millennia as an adjunct aromatic in pastries.

Given its exceptional aromatic power, use by singel drop, very parsimoniously, and always diluted in a plant based oil.

Origin of this essential oil

This sweet and nutty smelling essential oil from Morocco is steam distilled from the kernels of the apricot tree.

Suggestions for use


To be used in food in very small doses.


Keep away from children, air, heat and light.

Do not ingest for.
Do not use in diffusers.
Do not use pure on the skin.

More information

It comes from the almonds of the apricot tree, a small fruit tree (4 to 5 meters high) with a spreading habit, reddish-brown bark and pinkish-white flowers, native to Central Asia, cultivated in temperate regions and regions with a harsh climate Mediterranean type.

Bitter almond essential oil is mainly used in cosmetology.

Its gourmet and captivating smell will bring a floral touch to cosmetic compositions.

Its aromatic power being very strong and the fact that it contains cyanide, it is recommended to use it very sparingly, by the drop, always diluted in a fatty substance.

To be used in food in very small doses.
