I received a complimentary bottle of this oil blend in exchange for an honest and unbiased review. I have been experimenting with and educating myself about essential oils for the last couple of months, and am really beginning to appreciate the benefits they bring to life. We as a household are also trying to eliminate chemicals and other things from our lives since we aren’t getting any younger. This particular blend by Essence of Cleopatra is absolutely lovely. I usually “poo-poo” exorbitant claims of effects from the literature of different essential oil companies, enjoying them solely for their fragrance, but this is a blend that may have converted me.
The name and packaging claims stress relief, so I stuck the bottle in the pocket of my jacket at work, knowing I had to sit through several meetings yesterday, some of which were on topics that can make my blood boil a little. Every so often I would discreetly take the bottle out, unscrew the lid, and take a whiff. Either I made myself de-stress by taking action like this or the blend really does work, because I could really feel the effects of being able to stay calm and relaxed during these meetings. I will definitely use this oil often in this manner, but also plan to make some homemade body butter with it, because the fragrance is simply divine.
