Just a few days ago I had ordered Clary sage oil from Natures Natural India. I have just started making my own lotions and soaps and this product is perfect for both. My first few attempts at making these lotions and soaps were not so good and were really sloppy, but eventually I got the hang on it. The good part is that the quantity in the bottle is more than enough to make trials and finally get the right mix. I am very happy with the product and I would definitely recommend this product to others. Will buy this product again!
