Great essential oil for relaxing before bed!

This is a great essential oil for relaxation as one is laying down for the night. As others have described, it's great to apply right under the nose outside and around the nostrils, as the scent lingers and has a continuous relaxing effect. This essential oil is much thicker than most others, I find that just getting a little bit on the finger tip and applying to the nose that way works best, as it doesn't really drip easily as other essential oils do, due to the thickness of it's consistency. I highly recommend this great smelling and relaxing essential oil, especially when resting for the evening!

This Essential Oil is Essential

I love it! The description above is very accurate and hits the point. I used to put other essential oils oil on my finger and rub it on under my nose topically so as to be constantly smelling it, but all of the previous oils' scent did not last very long because they are thin and watery, which is fine. This essential oil, however, is very thick and viscous. This is great. It lasts longer in the air (under the nose), has a much stronger scent, and ironically smells like it looks: heavy. It is the only essential oil (that I have noticed so far) whose only use is topical, so, like most things which only do one thing, it does that one thing very well.

It smells like how I imagine Earth smells during a Golden Age.
