Rating: I really like it. High quality and very smooth. However, i really dislike the smell. Smell strong and nutty. I think the product itself is high quality and good deal. Just not to my liking. I love camellia seed and jojoba. Will stick with others.

Rating: I just got this like 2 wks ago and have used it on my hair, eyebrows and face. It is a great quality oil especially for females with thinning hair or eyebrows - caused by high DHT.
The price is great and love the quality. Will definitely buy again once my 16oz bottle finishes.
Rating: I really like this oil in hair products.Gives your hair a soft shine and it feels great.The smell is not too strong.The smell is hard to describe but isn't strong at all.I do plan to use it in a lotion.This will be staple product of mine.
Rating: Absorbs very quickly without leaving a greasy feel behind. Smell is a bit strong and not to my liking. I bought this one over the organic one because the organic one comes from China where as this one comes from the USA.

Rating: Man this stuff is Nice! Very light, doesnt leave a oily feeling on skin after applying. Does have a nutty smell to it, but doesnt bother me at all, I will add a FO or EO and use as body oil after the tub.

Rating: Ohhh I love this oil! It's light feeling on the skin and a very mild scent that doesn't over power your creams and soaps. I love using this around the holidays in my pumpkin soap and creams

Rating: Lots of fun, and because it's a more local product, I will be trying it out in a variety of recipes where a nouriushing oil is required.

Rating: A delicious, nourishing local oil, especially when blended with food-y and spicy essential oils.
By:Tracey, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: A nice thick and dark oil chock full of nutrients and minerals. It does have a distinct aroma and may be too dark to use in CP soap unless you want a very natural looking bar. A very popular skin care ingredient in Europe, and I am planning to include this oil to my products to nourish and treat my mother's mature skin!
By:Christine, Burnaby, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Wonderful! This is a highly rich and emollient oil that is great in bath and body products for dry skin.

Rating: The thing I love best about your website is how informative each product description is! It helps me to formulate new recipes by showing me exactly what properties each botanical has, its shelf life, scent, etc. As a certified aromatherapist, your site is invaluable to me. It is easy to navigate and place an order. I have always received my shipments promptly and my staff say it's like Christmas every time we get a package!
Keep up the good work
