I just love so many of these oils not because something is wrong. I'm just a fragrance lady....more perfumes than i know what to do with and these are not cheap. I also had my personal fragranced oils made for me by perfumers in Istanbul.

Most of these essential oils are quite delightful, everyone will have their own favourites. Love to dabble a bit on a holder and burn a tea candle underneath which releases wonderful aromas into the air.
