Can someone tell me if Peach Kernel oil is the same as Palm Kernel oil. I just ordered it thinking it was but now I'm not sure.

Nope! They are two very different oils!

Peach Kernel Oil is a conditioning oil used mainly in leave on products like lotions and creams.
Palm Kernel Oil is used mainly in soap for its cleaning and bubble qualities and hardness. HTH's! :wink:

Oh, okay. That's funny. I ordered from New Directions Aromatics and they didn't even have Palm Kernal oil listed as one of their products, so I assumed the Peach Kernal oil was the Palm KO. DuH!!!

Thanks for that info.
