Energising and diuretic essential oil

One of the most wonderful oils I use for myself! I use it in a really good foot spa during the summer when my feet are swollen due to the high heat.
I also use it in my blended shampoo with geranium essential oil to promote healthy grow of the hair.
I just love it!

One of my favourite essential oils

It helps ease my muscle pain and tiredness. It also keeps my body warm. Good for my blood circulation.
