After about a week of regular use for an acute condition, this seems like the quality of oil I am used to, and rely upon. Shipping was efficient and bottle arrived well packaged.
Deeply comforting, this oil helped release feelings of anxiety when I used it in a blend recently. It's wonderful for helping to get past negative emotions and uplifting them when needed. Highly recommended!
