I waited a few months to review my whole shopping cart just so I could know if everything really was good and really worked.... let me tell you!!!! My skin is loving my entire shopping cart, this Abyssinian oil specifically! I have oily skin, and this does magic as it does not make my skin super shiny (unless I smother a bunch on) but I love it. Has a nutty smell and is a great price.

I bought this oil to use in hair products, as a moisturizer and substitute for silicones. I've only just received it, so I haven't had a chance to use it in any products yet but I immediately tried it neat on the skin and hair. It's got a smell to it, but nothing overpowering. Applied directly to the skin, this oil is thick and spreads easily, with a very nice cushion and glide. It sinks into skin almost immediately and leaves absolutely no greasy residue or shine. In fact, you almost can't tell an oil was applied, it's completely weightless and skin is just left feeling softer than before. It's similar to Dimethicone in consistency and skin feel during application, but more like volatile Cyclomethicone in the after-feel. This would be great for a light facial/body oil, or anything where a moisturized, weightless feel is desired. Applied to the hair, it leaves a nice shine, without being as heavy or greasy as other oils. This oil is exactly what I was hoping for!

This has become my favorite carrier oil for herbal infusions, with the long shelf life, heat stability (like jojoba), and NDA's fantastic price making it affordable. Even without being infused, the oil itself is helpful for my chronic pain/inflammation issues (I believe due to its levels of erucic acid). Bonus- it feels great on my skin. I never go without my Abyssinian oil :)

Used this oil with some coffee grounds as a facial scrub. Massaged in gently for about a minute and let sit for another five minutes. Rinsed with cool water pat dried and used just a drop to moisturizer after. My skin is acne prone but was not oily afterwards stayed moisturized all day and I feel it does not clog my pores. No break outs as of yet! Compared to the cost of argan oil this is a steal!

I blended this with coconut oil for a deep conditioning treatment for my hair and was very pleased with the results. Leaves my hair glossy and manageable. I also use it in my OCM blend. Great price point.
