Product Rating: 4.8/5 (As per 15 Customer Reviews)
Fortified with Sweet Almond and Jojoba Oils, our luxurious Cream Base provides deep, long-lasting moisture protection that softens even the driest skin. This base has been specifically formulated to be extremely robust. Essential Oils, fragrant oils, botanical extracts and various raw materials can be added in order to customize each product.
Usage: We recommend that no more than 5%-8% or 50-80 ml of any essential oil be added to a Liter our cosmetic bases. Exceeding this amount may destabilize bonds between the ingredients. Over time this may cause our bases to lose some of their luxurious properties including viscosity, smooth feel and rate of absorption.

Rating: This is a fabulous cream - thick but glides on smoothly and is absorbed quickly. Add some EO and you're good to go.

Rating: I usually make my lotion from scratch but decided to try this base! Let me say, I wasn't disappointed 'bout my purchase. I mixed the base with more than 2% additives (including a mixture of fragrance & essential oil) and had NO PROBLEM! The cream turned out beautiful, creamy, with no separation and aesthetically pleasing! My family & clients loved the base and some of my clients have even ordered larger quantity. From now I will be purchasing this base (and in larger quantity). Thanks ND for gr8 product!
Rating: This cream base is great, good moisturizing properties, very thick, I add some vit E and a bit more jojoba clear to thin it out a bit. Takes Fo's and EO's very well. Easy to work with.

Rating: This cream is amazing and at an amazing price. It is very thick so it's perfect for adding eso. However I do use it alone and love it as well. Its thick but absorbs easily into the skin, within 30 secs of applying your skin feels hydrated with no sign of greasy residue.
Rating: I absolutely love this cream base. I am brand new to this and making my own cream with this base and some essential oils was a breeze. It is very rich and I used aloe vera juice to water it down a bit. I highly recomend it especially to all of you out there like me who don't quite know a lot about making creams!

Rating: At first, I put few drops of rosewood and cedarwood and I wasn\'t satisfied with the scent and I just need to put some more to make it my own. But when I added few amount of Rose Geranium Floral Water and strawberry fruit extract, I can\'t beleive that I made my very own cream.. I love it!!
I also been using this on my face and the result is amazing especially this winter season. I have to see how it will go on my face on summer. Love this product so much.
Rating: Very thick but this allows you to add a lot of E.O's which I love. And I recommend adding a floral water to it if you like it a bit thinner. For really dry skin I just use it straight up. Anyway you look at it this is a wonderful lotion is far superior to any other I have tried. Great price too!

Rating: it's a good product. it's really thick. but, remember to add something. I think it's little bit "too raw" to use this one alone.
Rating: I use to work with the formula without almond oil and just loved it. I feel it is too bad NDA is not carrying it anymore, since I have clients allergic to nuts. Also, I work with small children and use this wonderful cream to introduce them to aroma. Too bad I will have to find another product without the almond oil.
Rating: Great Cream if you're looking for something very thick. I use this one when I need something that isn't going to absorb as quickly, but will also leave a nice soft feeling as it does absorb. A little thicker than I was expecting though, this one requires a pump or an upside down bottle as it is very viscous.
