I use this along with other essential oils & use it as a face moisturizer. My skin loves it! I break out from everything but not this. I was scared to use an oil on my face but since using it my skin is soft & glowing!

I am just beginning to experiment with my own recipes for skin and hair care. I found this product to be a great moisturizer for hair and skin...without a lot of fragrance.

I use this to remove make-up and moisturize my skin. Sometimes I add a drop or two in my hair conditioner. Light oil that absorbs quickly. It would get five stars if it was in a glass bottle (the oil dissolves plastic and plastic is not the best possible thing to get on your skin).

I bought this for my hair and it leaves it so soft. I like the way it smells. Only thing about it that's bad is that if you put too much it won't absorb properly. At times when I put it in my hair it would glide down the back of my neck.

I use this as a face and body moisturizer. Only a couple of drops needed every time so it lasts forever. Good price too. However, I tried to use it for my hair but it doesn't seem to make it any better. Olive oil/coconut oil works better.

I adore apricot oil. I use it as a body moisturiser, face moisturiser, makeup remover, hair treatment. It absorbs really well and doesn't leave me greasy. This brand is great value, too!
