Rating: This is a really nice oil in body butters, creams, and slaves. However, it's slightly thicker than some other oils I've purchased before. It has a faint "refined oil" smell but nothing too difficult to cover up.

Rating: This oil is wonderful for a massage oil. I mixed some frankincense EO with the almond oil. My hubby said "It is very soothing". Great additive to the M&P Goat's Milk Soap as well. Love the price too-Thanks!

Rating: Nice smooth texture and I have purchased this product multiple times. Would love if there was an organic version!
Rating: I add this oil to my shea butter which gives it a soft, creamy texture. I use this mixture everyday and the added almond oil makes my skin feel very soft. It also helps heal chapped lips during the winter season.
Rating: This oil has been used to make lip balms and my very favourite whipped body butter. The smell is faint and when combined with cocoa the two together smell so good you want to eat what you're making.
I've also used to make a shaving "lotion" for my husband and in a cream for my baby boy.
I highly recommend buying this product - the quantity, quality and versatility of its many uses make this purchase well worth your time & money.

Rating: I love this oil. I mix in essential oils and sea salt and it makes a great body scrub and the oil absorbs really well into my skin. It's good stuff :)

Huile fraïche et versatile. Peut être utilisée dans la savonnerie, dans les barres de massage (certains l'utilisent tel quel en massage, en y ajoutant une huile essentielle. Le prix, encore une fois, est fantastique !

By:Christine, Burnaby, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 30-Nov-2008
Rating: Fantastic, light oil - wonderful for massage. Very fast delivery - my first order. I will definately be back for more.
Rating: I was looking for oil mild enough and appropriate for babies and toddlers.
My daughter has very gentle sensitive skin, and this turned out to be the perfect massage oil
for her. Not only it soothes and moisturizes it actually removes irritations due to oil's inherent qualities.
Love the oil, the quality and of course, the price. Thanks ND!

By:Stephanie, Burlington, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 21-Nov-2006
Rating: Sweet Almond oil is a great oil for the hair and skin. It is not too oily. It has a soft silky feel that leaves your hair and skin moisturized.
Rating: I have compared prices and New Directions beats them all- while still maintaining a high quality product!
By:Heather, Ottawa, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 11-Dec-2005
Rating: Almond sweet virgin is more pleasant in my opinion that fractionated coconut, yet it is still cheaper. The only advantages of using fractionated coconut may be the fact that less people will complain of possible allergic reactions to products with which it is made. This is an excellent product if you're not allergic to almonds. it is actually scentless.
By:Sherif, Scarborough, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 27-Jul-2006
Rating: A very high quality Sweet virgin almond oil. This oil is a wonderful addition to soaps and skin care products. The consistent quality of products from New Directions make me very confident to try new things.
By:Trudy, Warkworth, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 15-Jun-2006
