Bitter Apricot All Over Body & Hair Oil

revitalize. nourish. balance.

A true multitasker for face, body, and hair! We LOVE this most as a post shower body oil! Light, nourishing and quick-absorbing, it smells as delightfully fresh as it sounds.

A phytonutrient rich oil of Himalayan bitter apricot kernels, cold-pressed in a traditional wooden vat ‘ghani’ at the source. Rooted in the wisdom of generations, its origins are a sacred remedy offered by the indigenous Himalayan womenfolk we work with.

Hand filled and housed in our beautiful violetglass apothecary bottles to protect the bio-active energy of this 100% pure, single botanical, multi-tasking oil.

Apply onto damp clean skin after shower, or apply all over the body as desired. Massage well all over the face, lashes, lips and brows as a face cleanser to loosen makeup and grime. Wipe away with a warm damp cotton face cloth. Massage hair and scalp or work a few drops into hair as a leave-in treatment serum. Men love it as a beard or pre shave oil.

Empowered with high levels of vitamins A, E, and essential fatty acids. Apricot oil is excellent for acne-prone, sensitive, or congested skin as well as mature dry skin. Light and easily absorbed, it nourishes and strengthens your skin naturally. Super safe for babies and pregnant mums too. Leaves skin toned and supple while hair is left strong and lustrous.

A true multitasker for face, body and hair! Light and quick-absorbing, this fair trade oil from bitter apricot kernels is stone ground, hand pressed or cold pressed in a wooden vat ‘ghani’ at source by women self - help groups in the Himalayas.

Love this

I have been using the Bitter Apricot Oil on my body for years. I have tried other oils from different companies but I keep going back to this one. In the winter, I layer it with a heavier cream. It is a must try!

Look no further

Things happen to a women's body mind and soul when they reach their 40s!!. From being a crazy skincare fanatic who had a 10 step beauty routine and somewhat being an irresponsible consumer, I embraced a holistic and a minimalist approach towards my choices as a consumer, in my late 30s. Hit by a autoimmune and a thyroid condition, I gave my almost all skincare products and makeup. Just used coconut oil and moved on with life. My skin and hair was unimaginably ruined due to the prolonged health issue. After I had the condition under control, it was time again for me to reintroduce some skincare that integrated with my life's philosophy of holistic simplicity. I researched for ethical, sustainable, plantbased skincare and Purearth stood out like a gem. The ingredients are pure, there was kindness and compassion infused when the products were made with love. So I gave Purearth products a try as this was also a way to contribute towards empowering humans who are doing the right thing by preserving nature, traditions and also bringing the sacredness of the Himalayas in a bottle. 2 bottles and about 8 months later, my skin and hair has been rescued. It used to be red, flushed, dry, dull and inflamed. Hair was lifeless,dry and brittle. Today I look at clam and relaxed skin and hair that looks healthy and nourished. Bitternut oil, being a such an all-rounder, I will not look any further and truly recommend it for anyone who's looking for a simple and luscious Skincare routine. Give it a try for your self and also feel grateful for giving back to Earth.

when OILINESS feels "right" on your face

Having used endless amounts of high end products over the last 25y, I put myself through a complete detox with my skincare products for more than one year. In the past, having a 10 step beauty routine every morning and night and then going to zero steps and just using basic coconut oil was a massive transition for me as I chose a minimalist and a holistic life as I reached my 40s. Then it was time for me to upgrade my cleansing routine with just one magical product that simplified the process and also brought ease and joy. I bought Bitter Apricot Oil after much research (plant based, non toxic, not tested on animals, ease of use, packaging, and mostly having access to plant medicine in a bottle with simplicity) I was very selective about what I was bringing back in to my life after a long retreat. I was mostly drawn to the philosophy and the kindness behind the products at first, and it felt right in my heart to give Purearth a chance. As I started using the product, from the very first application, I felt the difference in my skin (Especially recovering from Thyroid issues, my skin was extremely dry and lifeless) As I kept using it for massaging my face as well as a cleanser, the puffiness under my eyes completely went away. My skin used to feel very warm for no reason and often looked flushed (possibly early signs of menopause as well) and since using the oil I felt that my skin is relaxed and less inflamed. I look forward to cleansing and the aroma of the oil is so invigorating. I have gone through two bottles already and I am certain that Purearth products are going to stay in my life for a long time. This product is an all rounder and I have experimented this plant portion on my hair, lips, add to exfoliating products, dry spots and does absolute wonders. If you are inspired to pamper yourself with something gentle to the earth and kinder towards a community and then also look beautiful inside out, then Purearth Bitter Apricot Oil is the right gift you can offer to your skin.

I really love this oil. I mainly use it after showering & love the scent of it as well how soft my skin feels afterwards.


This sounds wonderful I LOVE multi tasking products


Love the Apricot body and hair oil. My skin and hair is so soft. Incredible aroma. So special!

My favourite products from Purearth are the Bitter Apricot Oil and the Mitti Clay Mask.

am truly infatuated by the smell of the oil and the mask, because they smell of nature and not like the generic pleasant clean scent of most of the cosmetic products. When using, I feel like I'm feeding my skin rather than putting a topping that makes my skin look good for that particular moment. Apart from the high quality packaging and the general product experience, I have witnessed major improvement from using these 2 products. In the midst of dry Irish climate, thanks to these life-saving products, my redness levels are reduced and my skin feels way more hydrated and soft than before.

Absolutely love their products.

The oil I purchased from Purearth has worked wonders on my mother who is currently battling with Brain Tumor (last stage).

Perfect body oil for the summer!

I had dry patches and dehydrated skin from being under the sun and the Bitter Apricot Oil worked wonders in smoothening and nourishing my skin. Beautiful packaging too!

I've been using the Apricot Hair and Body Oil for a month now.

It leaves my hair feeling soft and silky without that greasy feeling . So Every morning I pour some on my hands, massage my face and neck and run my fingers tips through my hair nourishing every strand. I've been blessed with great hair. Now I'm blessed with great hair care. And It smells delicious too!

The Bitter Apricot Oil has been my absolute fave and is something I see myself returning to as a must-have.

As someone with problem skin, this product has visibly improved my skin. It helped moisturize without being sticky as most moisturizing products and body oils can be. I saw definite improvement in skin tone - while applying to the rest of my body I would also apply some to my face as well before bedtime. Over time I have seen fading of scars and uneven skin tone, especially acne scars. Cannot recommend enough!
