Rating: This is a new favourite and will become a staple for me. I very much loved this scent. Definitely a keeper.

Rating: This smells exactly like Boylan's Birch Beer. It's an amazing scent on it's own but for fans of root beer, it will remind them of a soda pop. I love this scent mixed with other essential oils or all by itself. It's nostalgic for an older generation which I suspect will be good for sales when I add this to some of my products this summer.

Rating: I've bought many EOs over the years from NDA and loved them all. This Sweet Birch Oil, however, is the first item I've felt compelled to write about. This oil is AMAZING for overworked muscles and general soreness. I use it in a massage butter I amke and people are amazed by the instant relief they feel before I even get into their massage. I use it on myself, as well, and I LOVE IT!

Rating: Surprisingly a bit minty while still being slightly woodsy. Fabulous on its own, remarkable blended with other EOs. I especially love it with lavender & cedarwood:)

Rating: Nice sweet scent. When mixed with CP soap it turns soap pure white and hardens within minutes. Highly recommend it for its properties and soap results.
Rating: I cannot wait to try this oil. I am placing this on order ASAP. I am glad that it is finally back in stock. I am looking forward to trying this oil for muscle treatment for my husband. My husband hates medicine-like smells. Wintergreen-like scent sounds great to me!
