    That's fair. Most everything on the web has conflicting opinions. That's why it's just best to do your own research and testing. But it takes time. Any info on pets is hard to pin down since they can't talk. Not trying to be smart alecy. It's just the nature of the beast.

I honestly bought this walnut oil from Soapers Choice more than 10 years ago and never used a lot of it. I made...
