hope you get this one back in stock soon, want to get some eventually. sounds like a really good carrier oil. again love the oils i have gotten from you.

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!!!!!!
Loyal Customer Since: 2010
Love it! It's a great addition to facial formulas...heals, smooths and makes skin incredibly soft! Thanks for another one NDA!
Loyal Customer Since: 2005
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.
Loyal Customer Since: 2008
Black Currant Seed Oil is a great product as a hair stylist I us it in my client hair for poor blood circulation in the scalp but it does have a strong smile I will keep buying this product
Loyal Customer Since: 2008
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.
Loyal Customer Since: 2007
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.
