Favourite 😍

This is one of my favourite essential oils. I add some to almond oil or balm and rub on my skin after my shower for a good night's rest. Also really nice in a diffuser. Mix it with a little lime essential oil and it adds an extra burst of freshness.
For those who are new to is woody but yet fresh......a little like vetiver.

Essential oils

I recently ordered some essential oils to help with post surgery recovery. I have used them for many years after completing an aromatherapy course. The benefits are wide ranging which makes them a worthwhile product to keep in my stock cupboard . The quality of the oils is excellent as well which is a big bonus. Many thanks Neal’s Yard
