A bit too intense but nice if diluted

Was used to subtle lemongrass oils before, so this one is rather extreme when sniffed from the bottle. Does work nice when highly diluted or mixed with other complementing oils though.

Lemongrass

I personally don't like the smell of lemongrass but my husband is having great relief using it in the muscle rub I make for him. I will be making sure I always have a bottle on hand.

An amazing oil

This is one of the oils I use in my pain balm. It melds well with the other ingredients I use.
