- A Favorite.... Review by Michele
- One of my most favorite oils from Eden. Very rich and smooth, almost edible quality. I love blending a few drops into my massage oil products (Posted on 2/28/13)
- Delectable Base Note Review by Gorosheeta
- This Balsam of Peru Oil has a creamier, sweeter vanilla-like scent. Since ordering and receiving it, it has become my go-to base note when I want to create a foody fragrance with a round finish. It has a light finish that sticks around for hours. (Posted on 2/20/13)
