Cautions:

"A sweet, sticky oil that is a great fixative and does not shy away from sticking in your lotions and soaps. When mixed with Egyptian Vanilla and Pink Sugar it presents itself as a heady, perfume like Aroma.

Absolutely, must keep this in stock at all times as the possibilities of mixing are out of this world."
This oil is VERY thick so dont even bother with the dropper. I removed mine and extract the oil with a toothpick when adding to recipes. Lovely smell, and very healing for cracked skin or chapped lips.
I like this stuff and I am using it as a natural preservative for my soaps that have flowers and food as exfoliaters. With all the crap you can have that is fake in soap, I feel proud to add this in the soap! It is awesome and the smell is nice too! Like others have said, it is thick!
I love this...syrup. a little goes a long way and I find reasons to use this sweet stuff all the time. A deal.
Once you figure out how to use this oil, its beautiful light exotic fragrance will take away your "winter blues."
Tips: It is a sap consistency- I put it in "hot water"
For a few minutes to thin it out. "Do not put the
Bottle in boiling water it will crack and break."
Just soak it in "hot tap water."
Use tongs to get it out of hot water.
Use a disposable "eye dropper" to transfer the oil.
This stuff is sticky!!! I clean it up with vinegar and baking soda.
Try not to get it on anything because it is, so sticky.
I hope this helps when using this oil. It was a bit frustrating to use at first but, after some of school of hard knocks I love the fragrance and its properties.
love the oil, but its very hard to work with because its so thick, anyone have any suggestions of how to thin it out a bit?, other than that i love the smell, its intoxicating, any help would be appreciated though Lisa p. Miller
Such a sweet fragrance, so reminiscent of vanilla at a much lower price.
