I really like this stuff. The Apricot Kernel is completely imperceptible but has a great viscosity that makes it easy to work with and easy to blend. And of course, can't beat the ND price. As far as carrier oils go, this one is my staple for dilution.

I really love this product, the price is so reasonable and it is quickly absorbed into the skin so it gives relief to dry skin quickly and doesn't have an oily feel.

You have to love the price compared to rosehip oil and it has the benefit of absorbing quickly and not being oily just like rosehip but at a much lower price.

I just used the apricot kernel oil in a batch of lotion and I absolutely love the way it turned out. I was worried at first because of the deep yellow color but it didn't effect the final result at all. Beautiful! I will definitely be ordering again.

Very popular, very inexpensive, long lasting and quickly absorbed into the skin, what more could you want from an oil. I will definitely be buying more of this one.

Great carrier oil with very faint smell, great for essential oil blends. Absorbs well and isn't greasy. Can definitely be used in soaps for skin-benefiting properties. No complaints here!!

This oil is the perfect "filler" oil when you have some space to fill in a recipe. Easily absorbs, not oily at all and my skin digs the feel. Sort of a win-win if you ask me. The price and moisturizing/nourishing aspect make it perfect when stretching your Rosehip or Sea Buckthorn oil in any recipe. Thanks guys

One of my favorite carrier oils! Apricot kernel feels like a "medium weight" oil to me, neither too heavy nor too light, and it's very nearly scent-free, which gives it a lot of versatility. It's very moisturizing and absorbs very quickly without leaving a greasy feel behind.

Wow, this carrier oil is amazing! It's now my new favourite. We got this in a couple weeks ago and had the opportunity to use it on a hot stone massage client last week. It allows you to continue with a nice glide without having to reapply oil often. And NDA offers it at a great price point! As always, fantastic customer service and fast shipping. Thanks New Directions!

Excellent product! I've used it as a massage oil for years with no negative client reaction or comments. In fact, a number of client have asked if they can purchase it for home use on dry skin and problematic spots because their skin felt so good after their treatment.

Great price! It smell nutty and sweet and the oil is light brown. The scent is stronger than what I'm used to get, and usually my Apricot Kernel oil is golden. Great in soaps and lip balms!

I added this to a cold process soap recipe, produced an awesome silky bar and you only need a small % at trace for superfatting. Adds good moisturizing and conditioning to the bar. I love it!

With no scent, this is great to mix with essential oils. Being that this is a little thick and has a darker color, it can wreak havoc on massage sheets. I combine it with the lighter Holly oil and have experienced great results.

Since adding the apricot kernel carrier oil to my massage oil blends I have noticed a healthy glow and wonderful enrichment of the dermis on the back especially. Great product for those of us in the massage therapy field. Thanks for such a great selection of products!

This is a great oil with only a slight scent that does not overpower any EO's that you add to it. Nice massage oil that the skin just soaks right up. Eating apricot kernal seeds is reportedly an excellent cancer fighter/preventer so I'm hoping to also get these benefits from the oil. Highly recommended.
