Smells divine. So refreshing in a diffuser or combined with Epsom salts in a foot bath. Mixes well with orange oil or lavender. Fantastic for nausea and headaches. Great when used in a homemade room freshener with 50% witch hazel, 50% distilled water, plus a couple of drops each of lemon oil, scotch pine oil, orange oil, eucalyptus oil and myrrh oil. This mixture is supposed to have great antibacterial priorities and can also be used to clean surfaces. Also works well when used as a wart treatment, dabbed neat onto the area with a tiny piece of cotton wool soaked in a carrier oil such as almond on top - sealed with a band aid. Repeat twice a day for abut 2-3 weeks for best results.

This is such a fresh and uplifting oil. I usually blend this oil with Tea Tree Oil and use it in my Pilates studio to spray down the mats after use. Keeps them fresh and clean and my clients love that their are no chemicals used in class.
Smells like Summer!
