Plant Habitat: A native to a continental climate with cold winters the apricot is more cold hardy than the peach. Spring frost, however, can kill the early blooming flowers.

This oil is great for lotions, lip balms, or soaps. It makes a very mild soap which is great for sensitive or baby skin. Use a 1-2 oz per every pound of oils in recipe.
