A gift for my friend

Reminds me of Mediterranean holidays!

I chose this more for a mindfulness escape. It fits the bill perfectly. Along with some meditation breathing, I can transport myself back to the Mediterranean, even though I'm in a chaotic household in the Lake District! A quality oil as always.

Great quality

As ever with Neal’s Yard products, this oil is really good quality and blends beautifully with the other NY oils I have. I always trust Neal’s Yard and am not disappointed - they may be a bit more expensive than others but worth every penny.

Smell of Yuletide

Absolutely divine. Love it in my diffuser, it’s Winter and Christmas together!

Amazing for urinary problems

Sent a review which wasn't published...don't know why. Anyway, as I said in former review this is wonderful for urge/stress incontinence bedwetting, adults or childten. A drop in carrier oil gently massaged clockwise on navel bladder area just before sleeping. It has helped so many people.Do a search..you will see

Amazing result

This is brilliant for stress incontinence or bedwetting in children or adults. My family have benefited greatly. A remedy which is well documented if you do a Google search. Just rub it gently clockwise on abdomen and navel over bladder area right before sleep. Use two drops in carrier oil. Wonderful results.

wonders for restless legs

I'd read cypress was beneficial for restless legs. I combine it with ylang ylang and it really has helped. Restless legs of an evening practically a thing of the past. Still have restless legs at night but no where near as bad as it had been. Definitely getting a better nights sleep. Have also tried sweet majoram but for me cypress seems to work better.
