This is the third bottle I've purchased in the past few years. I like to blend it with Lavender and Spikenard as my favorite sleep blend. I blend it with tangerine, orange oil, bitter orange, Ylang Ylang, sandalwood and other essential oils as a mood elevator that also relaxes me. Snow Lotus essential oils are in my opinion the best oils I've ever used.
Nice Vetiver aroma although it doesn't last long on my skin.
I was impressed by this product, and I received it right away. I will buy more products in the future.
Wonderfully grounding when combined with Lavender and placed on KI 1 point.
I absolutely love this! I apply it to my ankles before I do yoga and it really puts me in the zone.
