Even though the order was very fast and always on time, the lemongrass oil doesn't smell like lemongrass at all, more likely doesn't have any smell. All other oils i ordered were ok though
I ordered few times from here, and the first time the scent of the lemongrass was fine, last time however was nearly without any smell, and i ordered 1 liter also which was very disappointing. Everything else was fine, the order was on time, other oils were ok, but this lemongrass should have strong distinctive smell, which it doesn't.
I can say, this oil was having such a strong odor profile that I only need to put nearly 60% of what i was using from a local supplier, I can see the difference your oil is a lot better , thankyou , you made my soap such nice...
Nice product affordable price, friendly customer support and smooth shipping process- Thanks
Today I got my 2 bottles of 33.3 Oz order , it was pretty fast with delivery. it was my first order with you and surprised to see your quality at a good costing! , I use about 20 liters a month for my soaps. I think we will good business in coming months. Cheers !!
