    Pistachios oil in this scrub is an interesting idea. I`ve heard a lot about it`s positive qualities. I wonder how often should this scrub be applied in order to receive the best effect?

    I Haven`t heard anything about pistachios oil and I don`t even know where to buy it, that is why I substitute it with other nut oils.

    Pistachios oil is very nourishing for skin. It has moisturizing effect and it perfectly reduces pores. It can be bought in the pharmacy or ordered through the internet.

    It must have wonderful odor, isn`t it? I like to make different cosmetic products and it should be great to add it into some facial creams.

    I also add it in homemade body creams and it works great. And patchouli oil is also very good, because in combination with other oils it gives very nice aroma.

    I should really try both these oils, because I am really intrigued. My skin is too dry so I hope they will help me.
