|How to Use||
place a few drops of this therapeutic blend in a warm bath or massage into skin to nurture the body while enhancing energy, relaxation and a natural glow.
The scent smells a little bit like moonflower, but mostly like freesia at the beginning. (To be clear, it's real freesia and not the cloying artificial freesia. Think florist, not body wash for an example of freesia like this.) I don't like floral scents and this one is okay– not cloying and not "busy".
I very much wanted it to smell more like moonflower and palmarosa and sandalwood, which is why I gave four stars.
Be aware that the scent is light and fades during the day, even in the first hour or two. However, when I pull off my sweater at the end of the day, I can still smell the scent lightly and pleasantly there.
Looking forward to trying red flower's other aromatherapy oils! (Posted on March 14, 2017)
