"Five tender apricots in a blue bowl, a brief and exact promise of things to come." (Frances Mayes)
Hi everyone! Welcome to www.earthessentialsbyerica.com and thank you for stopping by!
What poetry ... a lush orchard, apricot trees, full of sweet and juicy ripe fruit. A real treat!
Apricots are the ideal snack on hot summer days, they are fresh, appetizing, full of benefits, and low in calories.
Their sugary flavor with a sour touch makes them one of the most popular fruits. The woody and brown core contains a seed called armellina, characterized by a bitter taste as it contains a substance called amygdalin.
Rich in potassium, vitamin A and E, they are an excellent help in reducing "bad cholesterol", regulating heartbeat, protecting eye health, and producing melanin! How many benefits in such a small fruit, right?
The history of the apricot tree is very ancient, think that it has grown wild in China for about 4000 years!
The ancient Romans who made it known in Europe called it "the Armenian apple", believing that it came from Armenia, not knowing that its origin was much more exotic.
It thus becomes a fruit loved by everyone, from the East and the West! The velvety peel ranges from pale yellow to orange-red and its fragrant pulp is rich in vitamins and minerals essential for health.
Today, we will talk about the oil obtained from the apricot kernels, ready? :)
Organic cold-pressed unrefined apricot kernel oil is extracted from the kernel of the apricot. Apricot kernel oil is a light-weight oil that quickly absorbs into the skin and gives you a satin-like feel. It is abundant in Vitamin A and E. It helps promote skin softness and elasticity. Vitamin E helps improve the skin’s ability to retain elasticity by protecting cells from damaging free radicals (like environmental pollutants), promoting a healthy and radiant complexion.
