SHIPPING ORDERS PLACED ON: OCT 25, 26

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
President

incredible price and incredible healing properties when used in dilution. a powdery and spicy note, not sure if i'd use much of this in natural perfumery, and whoever said something about 'curry balth salts' I find pretty weird!

I'm currently using it in a blend with chili seed, ginger, and black pepper. Absolutely awesome for arthritis aches and pains!

An interesting smoky, woodsy smell that's affordable. Would work great in soaps!

Turmeric is very good for the skin. Use sparingly in your masks and face creams to get rid of acne and brighten the complexion.

A very difficult odor to describe, entrenched in history and mystery and very personal reactions. Try a tiny bottle to start, and if you love it, buy more. Interesting in recreating ancient recipes and in grassy or floral blends, in high dilution. Treat as you would say, blackcurrant bud absolute or violet leaf: in fractions of a drop.

This is a deep, rich, peppery fragrance. I don't know what I was hoping for, but this definitely exceeds my expectations.

I use this essential oil in curry bath salts and tub truffles for its grounding properties and spicy, aphrodisiac scent.

Also wanted to mention that this seems to have a bit of a powerdy note to it once it mellows.

This is another one of those really interesting oils that gradually change over time while wearing. It mixes very well with many other EOs and when combined with Ylang Ylang OR Cananga and Sandlewood EI it is blissful!
