Almonds are my favourite snack! | www.OrganicIsBeautiful.com

I love this one. “Want to boost your memory, eat a handful of Almonds everyday”. This is the
tip that has become a norm.

Botanically speaking, almond belongs to the family of the peach, plum and the cherry. This
species of the tree is a native to Middle East, North Africa and the Indian subcontinent.
However, according to some sources the origin of almond is accredited to Central Asia and
China. In the Mediterranean region specifically in some parts of Levant, the almonds are
considered to be the first to be in the region. You can find their traces in history all the way to
the Bible.

Skin Types and Almonds
It is one of the most amazing things about almond that it is good for every type of skin.

 Oily skin attracts too much dirt and it can be addressed by applying an almond face
pack.
