A good quality and fresh product
Had a bad experience with rancid carrier oils from a different brand. Heritage products have always come fresh and unspoilt.
Didn't really moisturize my skin. In fact, it gave me a couple of clogged pores. For my skin's chemistry, I find hemp seed oil is a much better skin conditioner. However, for carrier oils, please don't buy Nature's Alchemy, I bought a couple of carriers to make my own cleanser, the Avocado oil as well as the Hemp seed oil came rancid. Smelling fishy. Both!
Smells stale, mouldy
I ordered this at the same time as the Ylang Ylang by Nature's Alchemy. Even accounting for difference sources, this product smelt stale in comparison. Also it did not have the correct consistency for a pure essential oil, it was very viscous as though it was mixed with a much heavier oil like a carrier. Coupled with the very stale, faint, ylang ylang scent, I was too highly suspicious of this product to use it in my facial oils as I planned to. Would give no stars if I could! Please buy the Nature's Alchemy one if you are hesitating between the two brands.
3rd bottle in 3 years!

Took me awhile to appreciate how to use this cleanser. On my normal combination slightly sensitive skin, i only need a tiny little drop mixed with water, it foams up a lot and cleanses/rinses really thoroughly without the squeaky tightness. Anymore than a drop my skin start peeling. Used this way it is super cost effective and one bottle actually lasts me a year (scary). The exfoliating properties of this wash is also not exaggerated. Prolonged usage (weeks/months) actually clears your skin. As long as I remember to use it, my back is totally clear, this works like no other body/face cleanser has for bacne. I've tried other Abra products but by and large this is their best one.
I love this scent! I use it for almost everything!
I love this! I love the size and the price. I adore the scent! I use this on my face daily! This is the only moisturizer that I can say I look forward to applying simply for the scent. It's not a very heavy moisturizer and rubs in quickly, does not leave a sticky after feel. All great for the humid climate I live in, but I can see this wouldn't be a good one for dry wintery climate. When I'm in a pinch I use it like cold cream to remove my makeup.
A Winter Forest!
Nature's Alchemy EOs always come to me so fresh and so much more herbaceous smelling that any other brand's essential oils. It seems a shame for me use the burner, I'm often tempted to buy a proper EO nebulizer because of the high grade of these oils!

You can see and smell chunks of (liver? pancreas?) in this powder. My dog has colitis/IBS and after switching him to a diet he was not allergic to as well as adding fiber (psyllium husk) his stools were I would say 80% firmer. But this particular item got his stools to 100%. I would recommend this to any dogs with digestive issues/old age.
Giant boost in energy levels!
It's so good! Better than caffeine the boost is large, it is quick, and it doesn't have side effects like migraine and GERD (caffeine does that to me). Still waiting for this to come back in stock! It's forever out of stock. I thought about buying all the ingredients individually but this combination is more convenient and cheaper.
No effect on skin. Relieved body aches greatly. Love the peppermint flavour.

Didn't do anything noticeable for my skin. BUT my body aches disappeared totally! I didn't even know I had aches before. So so so good. And I love the peppermint taste of the capsules, I actually look forward to skin eternal pill popping time!
For mineral makeup. This is great for everyday wash and wear look.
Great colour match for me. NC 30. Sensitive skin took awhile to acclimatise to this though. For the first week, my face itched a bit after application, which is weird because this product doesn't have bismuth oxychloride, which is the common itch causer in mineral makeup. But after awhile, I didn't itch anymore. I can sleep in this without clogging my pores. And I have personally seen redness on my face lessen after using this foundation. That being said, it isn't an excellent foundation as foundations go, as it tends to be patchy (mineral makeup) and it photographs badly (as a natural sunblock, it can't photograph well). It's better for everyday, sun protection, wash and wear, walking the dog kind of complexion. If I know I'm going to be photographed, I usually go for something super preservative-laden, yet lasts like forever and photographs like great skin e.g. Make Up For Ever Face & Body.
Helps my middle age miniature schnauzer bounce back from a year-long battle from misdiagnosed colitis/IBS.
Really revs up my skin natural exfoliation rate! Stings though.

I don't know what is the magic ingredient in this, but it works wonders on my skin as well as skincare regime. Even though I am used to using 20% AHA Glycolic formulations, a fortnightly application of this (only 6%) goes a long way to revving up my sluggish skin turnover rate. Skin is smoother, pimples become less inflamed, generally improves my skin's condition both superficially and for awhile after. It does a sting a little so don't use it on broken skin.
