Like coconuts and oatmeal, almonds produce milk when soaked in water. Oil-rich and full of vitamin E, the milk soothes, softens and moisturises the skin and hair.
Almond crops thrive in sunny regions such as the Mediterranean, California, the Middle East and North Africa. The almond tree is part of the plum family (Prunus), and its fruits are very similar to those of the same family, such as apricot or peach. In the soft flesh hides a very hard pit, which reveals a tender almond when broken.
Almond milk calms down itching and symptoms of skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis. It is therefore perfect for soothing the skin and scalp, especially irritated ones.
