It also eases muscular aches and pain, relieves digestive problems and PMT symptoms when use as part of a massage oil blend. It cools sunburn skin and soothes insect bites.
Method of use: Massage, baths, inhalation, compress. A few drops on a tissue can, clear your head, whether you're suffering from a cold or mental fatigue, and relieves headaches or any nausea, from travel to morning sickness.

Essential oils are extracts from plants. These plants may be affected by different climatic conditions, nutrient content of the soil, and water availability. As a result, every batch of authentic essential oil – the true 'essence of the plant' — will have a slightly different chemical profile and, therefore, a slightly different aroma. The properties are the same.
