Aroma: The aroma is sweet with spicy and comforting notes that give the feeling of warmth and comfort – perfect for the holidays! It can work as a base to middle note in blends and doesn’t require much to be used.
Aromatherapist notes: This is another wonderful oil to use as an alternative to cinnamon. It’s one I use in personal antiviral blends for its high eugenol content. It also has a density more than water which is pretty interesting and works great as a middle to base note in blends.
Recommended applications: Diffusing and topical application using safe dilution ratios.
Blends with: Buddha Wood, Black Pepper, Black Spruce, Blood Orange, Virginia Cedarwood, Cinnamon Bark, Clove Bud, Copaiba, Douglas-fir, Ginger, Ho Wood, Alligator Juniper, Red Mandarin, Nutmeg, Sweet Orange, Patchouli, Scotch Pine, and Vetiver

A couple of months ago, our good friend, Lola King completed her final inventory for Be Kind Botanicals. It was both a blessing and bittersweet. She worked for close to a decade to provide the best oils she could find, even if it meant processing the plant material herself and having a distiller obtain it through distillation. When Marge heard the news of her closing Be Kind Botanicals, she jumped at the opportunity to snag some of her finest inventory before it was gone for good. We are delighted to present to you our “Be Kind” Collection, so that you can experience what Lola and Marge find to be some of the most exquisite offerings of essential oils from around the globe… New Zealand Lavender may be the top of the list. These are in limited supply and will only be sold in retail sizes.
