I can't live without this oil. This is the only oil that helps calm my dematitis. I've added from contact dermatitis for years now and other than really strong hydrocortisone, nothing has helped me. Now to avoid using hydrocortisone, I apply this oil blended into a salve with essential oils and beeswax whenever i get itchy and immediately works! I love this oil!!!

This oil is a pale amber colour, fairly viscous but still fluid enough to pipette out easily. I did not find it had a musky smell as indicated on the product sheet. I purchased the smaller quantity of Andiroba oil, (100mls) to try it out. I have found it is such a versatile and useful oil that I now add it to almost all of my oil blends from body oils, because of its rejuvenating properties for skincare to a joint and arthritis pain relieving oil. It is also reputed to have wide spectrum antimicrobial properties so I put a few drops in my daughter's face oil to help clear up those breakouts. I would definitely call this a must have oil- it seems to make a difference even at low concentrations. I have also made a mental note of this oil because it is one of the few carrier oils that you can use therapeutically on open cuts and wounds. Oh, and I have used it on insect bites too to reduce the inflammation.

I have started ti use Andiroba oil in several oil blends. A little goes a long way and seems to be very healing and beneficial. I now keep this oil as a "stock" item! I would prefer it if it was packed in a 100ml glass bottle and not the wide jar type plastic container.

I am using this Andiroba oil in a wide variety of therapeutic ways for fissured feet, to help heal scarred tissue, and in an anti-acne oil blend. I have also added it to my moisturising facial and body oils! I am delighted with this oil. It is viscous and slightly solid at lower temperatures but dissolves easily in a waterbath. This wonderful healing carrier oil has very little odour too which is an added plus in body oils.

This is an amazing, therapeutic oil. I use it in a very effective first aid oil and have had great success with skin fissures, chicken pox, and eczema. A really remarkable oil.

WOW! I use this carrier oil directly on my contact dermatitis and I haven't had the urge to scratch because they're not itchy anymore! I don't wanna jinx it but this has been the absolute best remedy I've found on my dermatitis on my legs! The brown areas from all the scratching are fading slowly but surely each day!

The smell is heavenly! Between melted butter (the creamy one) and sugary donut glaze, it is absolutely divine! Too bad it does not stay in my CP soaps after curing. The feel of this oil is almost like silk and seems to do a good job blocking out UV rays. I tested this on my skin and went outside to help friends move out. By the end of the day, the patch where I put the oil was lighter in color than the rest of my arm (and still felt pretty soft).

I really like this oil. It showed many great benefits as a stand alone and also in formulations that need healing. The scent is strong, but it doesn't bother me. The main thing is andiroba's uses and not the scent.

My husband loves the muscle treatment blend that I make with this CO. It really does work. Very good for inflammation issues. By the way, this is going to be a staple in my medicine cabinet for bruises too. It speeds up bruise healing time in record time! Unbelievable!

I'm not too sure about this oil. It has a strange, almost sweet/tangy scent that is definitely noticeable when used in high concentrations and not entirely enjoyable. I've used this oil for massages on super tight and sore muscles, and have noticed some improvement, but that could just be due to the massage. The oil certainly heats as it is massaged into the skin. On a bruise I noticed improvement in healing time and pain reduction. In lotions at low concentrations I've noticed nothing.

Wonderful product! It's great on 2nd degree burns. It healed my burn blister in record time. It dried up the blister that day! It's also great for speeding up healing time for a bruise. Just be careful to keep it away from the eyes (it stings and needs to be flushed out with water for 15 minutes per MSDS sheet instructions). Also, it has a bitter taste so avoid the mouth area.

Just received this today. I rubbed it into an injury I sustained on my left leg about 4 months ago. Have been partially paralyzed since and extremely frustrated. Have noticed that my leg has really warmed up since applying. It's usually very cold and hard as a stone where the muscles are numb. The circulation has also increased. I can actually see this because the veins running under my skin are quite pronounced. As in I can see them quite clearly. Will continue to use for the next few weeks and see what the results are. So far though, this stuff seems to start working very very quickly. Will try it on my very dry skin tomorrow.
