Took longer than anticipated to arrive (due to supplier), but Jan was in communication with me and very transparent about everything. Also, due to the extended wait she sent me additional product and to be honest, IT WAS WORTH THE WAIT!!! I received my package yesterday and I'm already in love 😍. Smells heavenly!
I am loving the Blue Lotus Absolute, it is soft, feminine and heavenly. Garden of Essences is an extraordinary place to source high grade plant oils. I can't say enough good or positive things about Janice and this well of Life giving plant oils. In the past I was a little irked by some plastic bottle packaging but I just found out you can upgrade to glass in some cases. I understand that is more economical and pragmatic to ship in plastic but I will upgrade to glass when available. I am not an expert in oils but I know I am always receiving a beautiful oil. I also believe that this is a place of integrity. Back to Janice... Wow... what an amazing source of generosity and wisdom this beautiful woman is!
I’m so thrilled to have found this shop on Etsy! I make my own cosmetics—like hair growth oil for scalp massages; anti-aging oil cleansing blend that also treats acne ( I’ve got a teenager who uses all of my stuff...you know, what’s yours is theirs) as well as a post cleansing facial oil serum that follows a spritz w/a hydrosol; ultra-conditioning, ultra-softening, pre-shampoo oil treatment for my hair; deliciously scented bath oil for slathering on after a shower and sealing in all that moisture. As you can imagine, it can get pretty expensive making clean, all-natural products w/oils. These are quality oils at extremely affordable prices! Fast shipping. And the wealth of information in the product descriptions has my creativity in overdrive! I want to buy everything and try it all! I’m in heaven! Thanks!
This is an amazing absolute! I was curious about Blue Lotus; wasn't sure I ever have experienced it. It is powerful so one little drop on the skin will waft beautifully. Wait a bit, and don't smell it up close! Best part: my husband likes it, and he is "perfume-averse". Shipped fast & secure.
