Origins

It is a general practice in many Southeast Asian cultures to soak a few almonds in water overnight and drink the water and eat the softened almonds first thing in the morning. This is thought to increase brain power and improve memory. It is easy to see how these tasty nuts full of good fats, proteins, vitamins, and minerals benefit the brain, but there�s some definite evidence to show that almond oil can contribute to better overall neurologic function.

Sweet Almond has been used since antiquity around the mediterranean basin where the trees were first cultivated in and around 3000bc and still to this day it is a very popular choice.
