The Apricot Seeds
were Historically used to treat tumors
as early as AD 502. It was used against tumors and ulcers in England in the
1600s. Arab doctors where known to recommend the oil extracted from apricot
stones to cure hemorrhoids, aching noses and earache. They also used it to
help to regulate, moisturize and restructure the skin. Apricot kernel oil
has moisturizing, nourishing and revitalizing properties and it is
particularly helpful for dehydrated, delicate, mature and sensitive skin,
and it helps to sooth inflammation. This finely textured oil spreads easily
and is particularly rich in both oleic acid and linoleic acid.
Fruits are eaten fresh and dried, made into jams and jellies, preserved,
and used to make juice.
Fruits are used to make brandy and liqueurs.
Apricot juice can be used in place of water when making pancakes. Juice can
be poured over cooked oatmeal. It can also be used in place of water when
cooking curried lamb and salted rice.
