    The trick to using body oil without having it feel too greasy is to apply it right out of the shower, while skin is still damp. I love the oils from Aura Cacia...I've used this one and the apricot kernel oil. They are both fantastic at keeping my skin moisturized and they are fragrance-free, so they don't interfere with my perfume.

    I was really not impressed by this product. The initial moisture was great, but within 3 hours my skin was completely dry, and even ashy looking. I tried it one more time to see if maybe my skin was just extra dry that day, but had the same results. Coconut oil is much better...and even tropical-smelling. =)

              I have not begun to use this one because I buy two different oils.But the other one works well for massage and I believe this one is supposed to be good too.

                  Definitely good for over dry skin or to be combined with sea salt for a weekly scrub. Not recommended as a day time moisturizer since it's a little thick.

                  Comments about Aura Cacia Natural Skin Care Oil, Nurturing Sweet Almond, 4 fl oz:

                  I use this oil for massages and find that it goes on smoothly, provides good glide and isn't overly greasy. The downside of not being overly greasy is that it absorbs a little too quickly and requires additional application during a massage, but I love the scent and it leaves my partner's skin (and mine) soft and moisturized. It also doesn't stain the sheets.

                      Comments about Aura Cacia Natural Skin Care Oil, Nurturing Sweet Almond, 4 fl oz:

                      First, I thought that it would smell lovely (sweet almond oil..?); however, like one of the other reviewers, I guess I didn't read the fine print well enough. Plus, I haven't found an essential oil that I liked well enough to add to it. Nevertheless, I got it for winter dryness and continued to use it as it worked fairly well. I have to admit that it didn't absorb as well as L'Occitaine's almond oil which I was comparing it to.

                      The worst part is that two days ago I put on a sweater that I hadn't worn in a few weeks. Now, granted, the sweater needed to be washed as I had worn it a number of times on cool days in the spring. WOW!!! I put it on and all I could smell was rancid oil!!! It was the only thing that I had not washed since wearing the almond oil and I immediately put it to soak with plenty of soap. The odor has disappeared but the idea that I am putting this on my body is absolutely disgusting! I still have 2/3 to 3/4 of a bottle left and it is going in the trash.
