Hair absorbs scents easily, as you well know if you’ve been in a room with cigarette smokers or cooking smells!

You can tuck a small bottle of this fragrant formula in your purse and apply a few drops directly to your brush or comb, a helpful suggestion for travelers. The essential oils are invigorating, versatile, and pleasing to body, mind, and spirit. We also include a terrific gift idea!
A note from Annie and Cait: Many of us are sensitive to artificial fragrances. We encourage you to use only pure essential oils, diluted and with caution. Pregnant women, and those with serious health problems, should always consult a physician before using essential oils.
