Abstract: Chuli, the wild apricot, growing abundantly in trans-Himalayan Ladakh yields bitter kernels called Khante which are utilized primarily for extraction of apricot oil by the aboriginal communities. In remote villages, apricot oil is used for cooking, religious, cosmetic and medicinal purposes. The paper describes the traditional method for extraction of Chuli oil. One kg apricot kernel yields about 35-37% oil. The oil is light yellow in colour and has a typical apricot odour.
