Dear Customer,

Due to the rising costs of administering small orders, we are instituting a policy for minimum orders of $100, in our efforts to keep costs to as low as possible and offer the best wholesale pricing in the industry.

For orders less than $100, a small order administration fee of $20 will apply. This policy will be effective February 3rd, 2014. We truly regret any inconvenience that this might cause.

Kind Regards,

Alex B. Thomas

I've been using this oil in combination with argan oil on my face for almost two weeks now and I can't tell you how much better my skin feels and looks. I won't buy any more moisturizer after this combo. I have beginning rosacea- just redness so far- and this combo has really reduced the blushed look. I even forgo the foundation I used to use to cover it up. No breakouts either with just using oils on my face. The black current seed does have a bit of a scent, but it doesn't bother me. I will probably add some EOs that reduce capillaries to enhance these oils. Great product and price. Saved me lots of money on commercial face treatments in the future! More $ to buy goodies from NDA!

I tried a sample size to see if I liked this oil. And after 3 days, I LOVE this oil and am ordering more!!! This oil works GREAT as an anti-inflamatory, anti-spasmatic, and is unbelievably nurturing to the skin. It does have a slightly buttery, nutty, woody smell to the oil, but if applied to the feet or low back during the day - or even the neck and upper back, it would do WONDERS for pain relief. I have mixed it with vitiver and petigrain and the healing properties are AMAZING!!!!!!

This oil is fantastic. Have added it to my normal facial blend and have already noticed a reduction in fine lines and people have commented on my dewy glow. A little bit goes a long way. I highly recommend it. No noticable scent and absorbs well.

This oil has no unpleasant odor, is light yet luxurious, and does not leave a greasy feel on the skin. I use it in my base skin care blend and in massage oils. I will not make any health claims, but it has done me much good.

This oil is wonderful: such a "healthy" addition to almost any formula, and so easily absorbed. There really isn't a detectable aroma, but it is "yummy" smooth anyway. I should have bought a large quantity because it may become one of my staples. Once again NDA always seems to provide a wide array of versatility.
