Aroma: The aroma is very soothing and has a soft floral and sweet smell that is balanced with a round woody smell. Every time I smell this beautifully made oil, it takes me to a place in my mind that pictures a forest that is filled with the relaxing sounds of birds and other small animals. It is quite the relaxing aroma!
Personal notes: I often utilize this oil to aid in calming the mind during bouts of insomnia with great success. At other times, I have utilized it with Ravintsara to create a wonderfully healing synergy for upper respiratory concerns. It is a perfect alternative to using Rosewood as well.

Usage ideas: Create a soothing and calming diffuser blend to use before bed.
