I stumbled onto this product after searching, (believe it or not), for organic pesticides. I have some spider lilies infected by mealy bugs. Turns out, neem oil, mixed with water, is a great natural pesticide. While I was reading up on neem oil, it mentioned it is also great for the skin- notably for acne. When I went to buy neem oil on iHerb, this mask popped up. My daughter had wanted to buy a clay mask, this adds the neem angle, so I bought it. I'm quite skeptical the effectiveness of masks; but when it was Sunday night, my husband had a huge red shiny nose due to a pimple that wouldn't surface, and was desperate for solutions before going in to office next day, I suggested he try this mask. He skin cleared up IMMEDIATELY. We were seriously impressed. I couldn't believe it actually worked! My daughter is using it as well, and her face has cleared of the tiny bumps she had. It also seems to be working on the chronic low-level breakout I get on my chin. Very pleased with this product, and will definitely purchase again.

My doctor tested me and my estrogen was 4 times what it was supposed to be, with the side effects that come with that. I have been taking this for a couple of years, and have not been re-tested, but I do feel less angry and prone to fly off the handle. I don't know why other reviewer have said this product 'tastes bad' or 'smells funny'. It's a gelatin capsule- you don't chew it, you swallow it! It's fine to me, I haven't noticed those things and I am focused on the benefits.

I bought this oil to try oil pulling, (particularly for a morning after a night of drinking to try hangover prevention), but I didn't know that the most wonderful use we found (quite by accident) was that it seems to have cured my husband's shingles related skin condition. He has been having flare ups in the same place for over a year or two, which seemed to never go away, and had led to scarring of the area. The doctor told him it was viral, and any medicines would be purely for symptoms. The oil sits on our bathroom counter, and I guess out of desperation, he started putting it on his afflicted area. He has been amazed that the infection subsided, and even the scarring has been dramatically reduced. His skin looks normal! I had no idea why, but after reading the review by Leione in April, I suspect it must be these qualities that led to his results. I'm so pleased he doesn't have to suffer this discomfort anymore- and without having to use pills and medicines.

I prefer extra virgin olive oil, and finding a nice big bottle of organic extra virgin olive oil isn't easy. Nice big bottle that pours well.

I was having hot flashes and other unpleasant symptoms, and went to my doctor. She prescribed this as a natural way to gently stimulate my estrogen production without artificial hormones, or some other supplements that are a substitute for your own estrogen. It helped immensely and my hot flashes dissipated completely after a few weeks.

I've seen the other reviews saying this deodorant is very hard to apply. Well, I live in a hot climate, and don't run the a/c except in the bedrooms at night, so my bathroom and hence my deodorant is in a hot place. This deo doesn't go on hard, it goes on gummy and with little globs of baking soda or something. It is also white on my clothes, so I only use it when I am wearing machine washables, nothing that needs dry cleaning. Texture aside- it works very well. Sad, I really wanted to love this product. I love baking soda idea as well as the scent of ylang ylang, but the scent alone won't have me purchase again.

This stuff is great. I only bought one to try and I'm now buying a second for my husband, who also is very happy with it. Will last a LONG time from what I can tell, too!

My spider lillies were infested with an insect, (can't remember name). I did some quick research online that said that neem oil- just a tiny bit- mixed with water works wonders sprayed on plants. I'm here to say it was true. I'm now buying a second time.

I bought a box of these and my kids (15, 11) won't eat them. I tried them and they are quite sweet and just not very good. I am eating them so they don't go to waste, but would not buy them again. My colleagues tried them and questioned my sanity.

Really like the seven levels of crunch, from the chia seeds to the almonds it really is a wonderful textured nut butter. Very yummy!
