  • kp30 - Quick ship, expected better product from seller

    The formula was shipped rather quickly, which was good and kudos to the seller on this. The only problem that I have is that the product expires August 2012. Not that it's expired but it will soon expire. If I hadn't opened this specific one next (I had a few tubs that I just got from Target earlier in the week), there would have been a good chance that it could have gotten pushed back in the cupboard. With a food product, I think the seller should have stated that it was to expire soon and that is why the price was only $15 (tho shipping was $5+ - so I didn't really save that much money by going through this seller). I will be hesitant about purchasing from this seller again.

  • Gerald - Not the original recipe

    I know nothing about essential oils, much less the quality of this one, but I do know that while it may be "inspired by" a recipe from the Middle Ages, it is not that recipe. The Black Death swept Europe in the 14th century. Australia wasn't discovered by outsiders until the 16th century, and Eucalyptus radiata occurs naturally only in Australia. So the original oil did not contain Eucalyptus radiata oil, while this one does. And over $40 for 15 mil? I'd say the oil is well-named.
