Wish it came in a glass bottle. No plastic, so the plastic chemicals wouldn't be leaching into the high quality expensive organic oil. Seems to defeat the purpose of buying /using the clean oils.

I found this oil hard to be absorbed by hair, the hair will stick together after applying, make the hair look like dirty and oily. However, I used it for face and body, it is good. The smell of the product is natural oil smell, should be no addictive.
