Love this oil for its skin nourishing benefits! I use it in almost all of my soap recipes. So sad to see that its being discontinued.

I love this oil! I use it in a facial cream in place of Neem Oil {another oil I love} since it does not have as strong an aroma as the Neem but still delivers similar benefits. It is very emollient. I highly recommend this from NDA!

Haven't had a chance to really use this oil yet but I want to share my thought on the smell. It's a very nutty, green smell to me. Reminds me of summer when I help shell lima beans. It's not an awful smell, but it's certainly not a smell I'd seek out. Still, I look forward to finding different uses for this stinker!

A bottle of your oil was given to me to use on a dog with skin irritation. This dog had this rash for over 2 years and seen a vet countless times not to mention the thousands of dollars it cost me. It never cleared up. Using a little of this oil straight from the bottle on a q-tip for seven days and it was gone. I was never so impressed. After ten days of twice daily therapy my dog is clear now for over 3 months and enjoying life again.

I used this product in a lotion bar designed for eczema relief. So, the benefical factors should outweigh the scent factor. It is well diluted, but still noticible. I am advising users of my lotion bars to use the product as a nighttime regimen for their hands with cotton gloves. The scent isn't real bad, but it is noticible if you have your hands hear your face.

I purchased this product for the benefits of the oil. I was worried about the scent. To my surprise, after my soap set up and was cut, my soap had a slight sweet smell like peanut butter. I have tried it twice and both times it came out with the same scent. I really love it and no one has disliked the smell after being incorporated into the soap. I did not use any other scents, but I had used a little beeswax pellets in it. Not sure if that is why it is sweet like that, but I have used beeswax in other mixes and it has not had that sweet smell.

Karanj oil has proven to be very useful. I use it on my three dogs as a natural flee medicine, and none of them have had flees since using this oil. The smell is not so bad- it smells like used coffee grounds to me. Very good price on this oil, I haven't even found anyone else who carries this EO.

I have just started using Karanj Seed oil. I use it straight from the bottle on a small spot of cancer on my face instead of the strong chemical that a doctor gave me. It has been a short time but I am sure it will help. the spot is less red and a bit smaller. It feels good to use it.

Karanj Seed oil is one of my favorite oils to use in salves & balms, but it's also a very beneficial addition to lotions, creams, and even soap! I have to admit that the scent is not at all pleasant to me, but the oil's properties make the scent seem unimportant. I blend it with a variety of other healing/soothing oils and the scent diminishes to the point it's hardly recognizable. We use Karanj oil straight when the kids get a scrape or cut. It has some minor pain-relieiving properties which they love!

From my limited research this oil is similar to neem. Not only good at replelling insects from both humans and pets but also soothing to the bitten skin! karanja oil is insecticidal and antiseptic. Can be used also for biliousness, eye ailments, itch, leucoderma, rheumatism, skin diseases, worms, and wounds. The aroma is woody and musty. Not offensive but not great as scent goes but medicinal qualities are great!
