Do not use on the skin full strength. Always dilute in appropriate carriers before use.  Not for internal use.  If pregnant or suffering from serious medical conditions, consult a qualified health professional, experienced in the use of essential oils.


Useful Information

Very strong woodsy aroma. I refer to this oil as the masculine lavender.   May be more suited for those who dislike the aroma of lavender but want the healing properties. Very easy to blend with most oils, enhancing most mixtures.



Essential oils are not meant to be a replacement for traditional medical treatment of diseases and conditions. When in doubt, please consult a physician.
