  1. Is it safe to use a 3 -5% dillution for a facial serum? I thought it was 1% for all facial uses? Just looking into this before I get mixing.

  2. This is one of my favorite oils and allies. Like many, I put it in skin care blends. But it really is miraculous for issues of inflammation anywhere. I mix it with German Chamomile and diffuse it, or palm and inhale it, or apply to my throat and chest.

  3. So bummed I missed the spotlight sale 🙁 Unfortunately my payday didn’t line up. Oh well on my wishlist it goes and hopefully I can get it later.

  4. Have been really impressed with this EO for its effectiveness on scar. Have made it both for my sister and a friend who both were very happy.

  5. I’ve heard so much about this oil, but it’s hefty price tag made it just wishful thinking until I saw the spotlight sale and snapped it up! Can’t wait for it to arrive and try out these recipes and blends!

  6. I have had my eye on this oil for quite a while now. I am going to take advantage of the 15% off this week and finally buy it. I am hoping it will help my daughters with their acne and me with age spots.
