" When I started my hair journey I discovered this fabulous product and started using it as part of my daily hair care regimen. I mix it with other natural products and distilled or spring water and use it as a moisturizing hair spray. Leaves my hair soft, shiny and strong. I also use this in natural skincare products, and my body butters. You can also use this for cooking. Has a sweet taste. And it is great for preventing wrinkles in the skin. Great product. "

" I bake with this, I put it in tea, lemonade, and anything else that requires sweetness. It's an interesting product. It has a nice, sweet flavor with no strong aftertaste. I'm glad I tried it. "

" I've never cooked with vegetable glycerin before so this was a new experience. Taste is sweet, and it blends well with herbs & spices to make a great tasting marinating sauce for cooking. "

Excellent buy
 February 12, 2010
" This is an excellent product; however "taste" really doesn't apply. They may want to consider a new bottle. No matter how tightly I close the lid, it seems to always leak. Nonetheless, I'm really pleased with the glycerine. It's great on dry skin, especially heels and elbows. "
