Works, Smells Great, Safe. Order a lot, bottles are small.

It happened, the dreaded lice. My kids age 6 and 7 picked them up at summer camp. Luckily it was not too many, actually we only ever saw one lice, but we found lots of nits in their hair. We use tea tree oil conditioner, but this still happened... ugh ugh ugh ugh gross gross gross gross and more laundry than I ever imagined (so much I had to bring some to the laundromat as I would have killed my machine) This stuff smells great, is really soft, and actually works. BUT the containers are pretty small, so you need to order a lot. My understanding is you need to treat the whole house for lice, as it is likely you all have it. So you need enough for everyone in your household. My son has a crewcut very short hair. My daughter has a bob (hair cut just at her shoulders). I have curly hair just below my shoulders My husband has short hair cut. It took two full bottles to do the four of us. Also, the box only comes with one shower cap, so be sure you have extra shower caps at home - you need a total of two for everyone. So my suggestion is, order enough bottles to keep around to use instantly if needed - I am ordering more to be sure we have them on hand ASAP if needed. Waaaaaay better than the chemical option - highly recommended!!
Great for curly hair
I like the way this holds the curls - I have fine curly hair, and this really makes my hair look nice. I put it on my wet hair and either scrunch it up, or if I have more time make ringlets with my fingers. I like the smell. I wish it came in a pump bottle - that is the only reason I don't give it 5 stars, the tub is really a pain and quite messy.
Slightly healthier alternative
This offers my kids a slightly healthier alternative to other ketchups, and the taste is very good.
British Hubby Loves It
My British hubby needs his English Breakfast tea, and this is the brand I get for him now - he loves it! The box is nice too, but we actually open the box and put all the individually wrapped tea bags in a big jar with other herbal teas on our counter.
Great for snacking and in recipes
We like all of the Now Foods organic salt free and raw nuts and seeds! We use this for snacking, but also in cooking and baking. Nice gentle taste and easy to eat!
Kids loved it, I loved it

As someone else said - don't expect kraft macaroni and cheese, because this is not. The pasta and flavor is great - easy to make and very yummy. My kids just had it for lunch and asked if we could have more for dinner :) The reason I bought it is that I am currently on a wheat, dairy, yeast free diet - which means lots of creative cooking in the kitchen. Even before this diet, most of what we make is fresh and homemade, but I am still figuring out what I can and can't eat, as a result cooking is taking a lot longer and I have had as many failures as successes (maybe more!) This allows me to make a quick meal and eat with my kids. After eating it, I think we will have it as a stand-by even when my diet is over! One packet fed one adult and two children (age 6 and 7). I agree with the poster above, I wish I could just buy the spice mix and use my own rice or buckwheat pasta - then I could make more at a more affordable price :)
A staple in smoothies, salads, raw food
These hemp seeds are a staple in my smoothies, thrown in salads, in raw foods, in homemade chocolate - you name it. Hemp seeds are really soft and easy to eat. Highly recommended as something healthy to add to your current meals.
Necessity in Hong Kong
We use this in our bathrooms in those jars with the 'sticks' to keep a citronella smell and in oil burners. This is good value for citronella oil, and it is nice and thick and has a strong smell.
Moisturizes and smells great
We keep the Avalon Organic, Shampoo, Conditioner and Body Wash in Nourishing Lavender in our guest bathroom. We always get compliments on it, and sometimes us it ourselves too. It really does leave hair and skin soft, and the smell is nice (not offensive like I find other brands that use artificial scents in their products). The size is great as it lasts a long time, and the bottles, labels and pumps look nice too!
No residue, but does not clean it all off

As advertised - there is no residue after using, it is clean and light. But it does not easily remove all of the waterproof mascara from my eyes... I'll finish the bottle, but won't buy again. On other hand, if you wear non-waterproof mascara or have really sensitive skin, then I think this would be a good product for you to try.
Awful, kids and I both agree

My kids are 4.5 years old and 3.5 years old. My kids generally love to brush their teeth and my only concern is they like the toothpaste too much! They started off on the Wedela tooth gel for kids, then moved to Tom's of Maine without fluoride, then with fluoride, then we tried Kiss My Face which they liked, but not as much as Tom's. Anyway, we decided to try this one since the ingredients looked good. OMG, it smells and tastes awful... at first, I thought it was just me (I always try the kds stuff before they use it) Then my kids refused to use it. My 4.5 year old spit it out immediately, and my 3.5 year old tried it then made a face and the next night refused. This is the first time they have ever not liked a toothpaste or refused to have their teeth brushed. We tried for a few days, with no success, I tried it again too, and still thinks it tastes like it went off. Either the tube I got had 'gone off' or this just is not for our family. Anyway, luckily the local store had some Tom's of Maine, so I stocked up. See if you can try this from a friend before buying, I am sorry I wasted my money. Sorry if this sounds harsh, but I have never written a bad review before, and really thought I should share our experience here.
Pure and strong
Very thick oil, we use it on scars and it seems quite effective - but it is very very thick and sticky, so not something for daytime use, more for nighttime.
