"There is always something" is a quote from Lemony Snicket's "A Series of Unfortunate Events". We are all suffering at the hands of forces unseen which undermine our health. Our health care system is failing to protect us and encourages further problems in many cases. Nutritional therapy, herbs and aromatherapy are my "something" I use to tackle these complex problems.
Not complaining here as helichrysum is very hard to find and quite expensive. I am very happy that iherb is providing any version of this essential oil. What is disappointing here is that it is a blend but Aura Cacia does not say what the essential oil concentration in the blend is. That makes it hard to know how much to add to other formulas for use.
I have used this oil to help with urinary track infections. I have found that using this oil appropriately in a massage oil dilution along with drinking pure cranberry juice have helped when I have had flare ups.
This lipstick applies nicely and has moisture. The color is great. Nice blend of a rose/red and brown shades without being so warm it won't complement a cool palette.
The convenience and pricing for this is great here at iherb. I generally have to use an extra drop or two of this in my formula than other brands to have the same effect. Scent is decent and not as weedy smelling as other brands. I have used this oil in particular to help with menstrual cramps and is the best of all the essential oils in my opinion for relief. I have also likewise used it to help relax tense muscles. Nice as an addition to romantic massage oils as long as it is used sparingly.

Jasmine is hard to find and expense. This is a great way to experiment using Jasmine without paying exorbitant price. Very good for use in a diffuser for romance. This is an absolute so it is extracted by solvent. For this reason use only two or three drops max in tbsp of carrier oil.
Pure Frankincense is hard to find. I love that this is undiluted and allows me to play around with various massage oil applications. I have used this oil to help with insomnia and nightmares. It is so great for my fair skin and I apply it to any area where freckles are getting uncomfortably dark. I have also diluted it into body butters and applied to areas of keratosis. Very nice when diffused along with other complementary oils for a nice romantic evening.

Another good qualtiy oil from Now Foods. iHerb has a better price on Majoram than wholesalers.
I have used Palmarosa to help with rosacea and it is also a nice addition to romantic scents when used in combination with other compatible oils.
This is a great all-around castle soap. I use it for making various personal home cleaning recipes as well as great hand soap. I even use this to wash firm skinned produce which often covered in waxes. I rinse the produce very well of course afterward. I also use it as a base to make my own homemade shampoos. The shea butter makes it nice and not so drying.
I have used this oil in cleaning formulas to kill black mold. Also great for diffusing when colds are in play to cleanse the air. Cinnamon is harsh to use on the skin in massage oil formulas. If used in this manner don't exceed a drop or two but is wonderful diffused.
