We were thrilled to be featured in the September 2011 Fall Fashion Issue of In Style Magazine as a favorite of Salma Hayek, in the June 2012 issue of Everyday with Rachel Ray, and in 2014 on the front page of Xovain.com.

We test on a variety of free range humans (including some with chemical sensitivities and allergies), but since people vary widely, we encourage patch testing for those with especially sensitive skin or other sensitivities.

You can use our extraits full-strength or diluted in your favorite unscented lotion or a carrier oil (such as almond or jojoba). This is a great blog article wearing perfume oils: http://tinyurl.com/jd96usk
