Because I obtain such a small amount from my artisan distiller, I have elected not to have this batch tested so that the cost will remain where it is for my clients benefit.
Aroma: This is a well crafted oil that is has a light earthy but herbal smell that is toned by a sweet honey aroma in the top notes. I rather enjoy the smell of this oil over others that I have worked with in the past.
Personal Notes: I use this essential oil frequently for skin conditions where there is significant irritation, bruising, inflammation, and itching. I find it to be very supportive in assisting with the appearance of decreasing skin concerns whether they are scratches, bruises, eczema related, or other conditions. I do find that I use this more topically than any other method of application.
