Almond oil is a cheaper alternative to jojoba, and a pricier alternative to grapeseed. These are the top three choices for most massage therapists and the decision between them is mainly based off personal preference. The majority will prefer sweet almond since it doesn't have much of an odor at all. The only drawback with sweet almond is the fact that it is derived from a nut, so those with a nut allergy should steer clear. Again, this works for the skin just as efficiently as grapeseed. I purchased this cute spray bottle, l'amande douce in the image above, from Monoprix in France.
