Deep intense smell

I absolutely love the cardamom essential oil, it is definitely up there as one of my top 5. This is a very deep intense smell that I often use when feeling stressed, I find it helps calm me. It is great when mixed with sweet marjoram essential oil, often I use both of these infused with bath salts


This one is very, very interesting oil. I did read in some book it was author's favorite perfume and reminds me of ginger oil a bit. Well, out of curiosity I had to buy it. It became my 'sniffing oil'. Each time I would be in any stress, I would grab the bottle and sniff it. It became some natural habit- I did not even mean to use it that way, it just had that natural effect on me. It is refreshing aroma, really reminds of fresh ginger a bit, yes, different, of course, but if to compare with something- that would be almost close enough.
