I have never smelled this oil before, so I ordered a sample. I love it so much! It smells divine. Now I just have to figure out what to use it for, besides a drop on my diffuser jewelry!
Having never smelled Rhododendron essential oil, I wasn't quite sure what to expect. I generally am not a fan on florals as they tend to be overpowering to me, but this oil is actually quite beautiful. It is delicate and inviting and also slightly sweet.
I didn’t really know what to expect from this oil, so I was pleasantly surprised by the crisp, light floral scent. I diffused this on a day when my breathing was bad and this scent gave me a boost, making my breathing easier and just made me calm. I have a weakened immune system which affects many aspects of my breathing and anytime I can find something that really helps me, I am very Happy. This is one oil I will not want to be without.
This oil is unlike most other floral oils I've used. I often find florals overpowering, sickly sweet with a scent that lingers in my perception for far too long. This floral however does not have any of those qualities. It is soft, slightly sweet with woody undertones. Like smelling flowers in a dense forest.
Subtle yet uplifting. This rhododendron imparts a sense of peace and tranquility. Recently I have been using it before bed and have slept more soundly that I have with any other oil or blend. It also intensifies dreaming I have found. I tend to use oils mostly for mind, emotional and spiritual support and this rhododendron enhances all three.
Rhododendron is a very delicate floral with woodly, almost spicy, base notes. I've never smelled anything similar to it! It is my go to for emotional support now. I've never had an oil flip a horrible day so drastically and quickly! I happened to get my order on a very stressful day and I felt myself relaxing as soon as I opened the bottle and smelled it!
