Rating: This is one of the most remarkable products I have purchased. It is an excellent healer for eczema. I've been using it for about three weeks, twice a day and the sores are drying up well. After trying so many medications and home remedies, it's a relief to have an effective remedy, I absolutely recommend this oil.

Rating: I love this oil, I was so desperate to find something that can help my children's eczema without all the chemicals. and this oil brought much needed relief to them. My son is into football he came home with a swollen finger, I mixed this oil into some hemp butter and some Tea tree EO and he felt relief almost immediately the swelling went down that very day and three more applications his finger healed. Thank you NDA for carrying wonderful products.

Rating: This oil is very cooling to the skin-- although one has to remember to shake it before using it! I was using the top of the jar for two days and didn't notice much of a sensation-- but after I shook the jar it was like having a cool ice pack on my skin after application!
I don't find the smell to be bad compared to other oils-- the scent reminds me of Tamanu (musky/earthy?) but not as strong. It seems user-friendly in that one can use at work on irritated skin without stinking up the place. My skin issue seems to be improving as I use it, too. I think the cooling sensation is a big huge bonus!
I wish it had come in a glass bottle instead of a jar- but, I'll still give 5 stars!
Rating: I really like this oil. It showed many great benefits as a stand alone and also in formulations that need healing. The scent is strong, but it doesn't bother me. The main thing is andiroba's uses and not the scent.

Rating: My husband loves the muscle treatment blend that I make with this CO. It really does work. Very good for inflammation issues. By the way, this is going to be a staple in my medicine cabinet for bruises too. It speeds up bruise healing time in record time! Unbelievable!

Rating: Very thick oil like coconut. Do not get in eyes. Stings like crazy. It reminds me of tamanu oil in that you can really feel it doing whatever it does immediately after you put it on. Kind of tingly. Will probably not use it straight on my face again, just in spots that need intense healing or mixed in smaller percentages with other oils. Strong smell, but not necessarily unpleasant.

Rating: Wonderful product! It's great on 2nd degree burns. It healed my burn blister in record time. It dried up the blister that day! It's also great for speeding up healing time for a bruise. Just be careful to keep it away from the eyes (it stings and needs to be flushed out with water for 15 minutes per MSDS sheet instructions). Also, it has a bitter taste so avoid the mouth area.

Rating: Just received this today. I rubbed it into an injury I sustained on my left leg about 4 months ago. Have been partially paralyzed since and extremely frustrated. Have noticed that my leg has really warmed up since applying. It's usually very cold and hard as a stone where the muscles are numb. The circulation has also increased. I can actually see this because the veins running under my skin are quite pronounced. As in I can see them quite clearly. Will continue to use for the next few weeks and see what the results are. So far though, this stuff seems to start working very very quickly.
Will try it on my very dry skin tomorrow.
