Good Medicine cabinet staple
Quite a sweet smelling oil from a similar family as tea tree. I do not love the fragrance of this oil as it can be quite musty (like tea tree), however it works very well to treat migraines and is good for its antiseptic qualities. A drop can be dabbed neat on a pimple to help reduce the size or added to your usual face oil and applied to problem areas. Quite drying so use sparingly. Mixes well with orange oil in a diffuser to clear the air, especially for respiratory conditions.
