Almond oil

Rosaceae Prunus dulcis (Mill.) D.A. Webb

Source: Magness et al. 1971

Oil extracted from almond kernels is non-drying, and is obtained from both the bitter almond, not edible as a nut, and from sweet almond kernels. The oil from the two kinds appears identical. The oil is edible, but is used largely in the manufacture of certain pharmaceuticals.
