Hi, I've also read that bitter almond has some benefits, but mostly anti-fungal, anti-parasite. Everything you put onto your skin goes into your skin. Lavender is an excellent fungi fighter and it will not make you sick.

Thanks for keep coming back to this site. And I hope you're doing fine too.

Bitter Almond oil which contain amygdalin or benzaldehyde are claimed for cancer remedies. Lebanese use it for skin problems including white leukoderma like skin patch.

And in the middle east, this oil used to alleviate itching. Raw oil from bitter variety can be used to treat acne.

And yes.. I agree with Debs. Lavender and tea tree are the most common oils for skin problems
