I love diffusing this alone or with other oils.
Another great Jade Bloom oil. Wonderful citrus fragrance. Great diffused. Might be my new favorite!
This bergamont seemed to be lacking the umph pleasant scent that bergamont usually delivers. It is one of my favorite citrus scents. Not this one. But it also has the benefit? of lacking the alleged ingredient that causes sun sensitivity that most citrus oils are guilty of. Maybe that is what causes the loss scent-wise. If using the oil for its chemical constituents vs it scent capabilities, you should be fine with the oil. It might be a trafe off.
This oil is a keeper
I love the scent in my diffuser all day. I also added to vinegar as a fabric softener. Even Spray on Linens mixed with purified water.
Another great oil
I love diffusing this alone or with other oils. Very delicate scent and uplifting and clean. I recommend to anyone.
Has a light lemony scent. I've used this for colds:)
