A little strong but eases up after a while. Works great

I'm being tested for a painful medical condition that leaves it hard for me to rest/sleep some nights. I have tried sleeping and pain pills to no avail. The first night I used this, applied a little to my top lip and was gently off to sleep. The product has a mild scent, which is good, because a concern was that it would be overpowering. It's packaged beautifully and was delivered a day earlier than was expected!
Nature-Made, Hand-Blended, Little Girl Inspired.
More about me: I'm a master's degree-holding librarian who craved something creative in her life. Herbs and essential oils were always a curiosity for me, but I was too busy being a single mom and full-time employee.
Then, in January of 2013, my beautiful, creative daughter Aliyah died at 7 years old from previously undiagnosed Type 1 diabetes. My husband and I were devastated. I had to do something to channel my grief through creativity, so I decided I would take up essential oil blending again. Aliyah loved making "potions," and she loved purple, anything that sparkles, things that smell good, and all things girly. Aliyah also loved to help others, and with these natural blends, I'm excited to help you and those you love have a more relaxing, more comfortable-in-your-own-skin life.
All items listed in my shop are natural and made when you order them for maximum freshness! The essential oils are of the highest quality available, purchased from reputable oil suppliers only. No added chemicals are used in the making of any of these items, beyond those already present naturally in the ingredients, and all of my items are made with love.
A portion (5%) of each sale will go to a nonprofit organization, 4 Paws for Ability, that helps kids with Type 1 diabetes attain diabetic alert animals (http://4pawsforability.org/).
I'm also happy to make custom blends, and I can make pretty much anything! Please message me and let me know what your needs are. I'd love to work with you!
THANK YOU for reading, and THANK YOU for looking. <3

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders
Q: Do you do custom blends?
A: ABSOLUTELY! Many essential oils have similar properties, so if you would like to modify an ingredient, simply send us a message with your request. We'll strive to make it a reality.
Q: Why does my product say, "store in a cool, dark, dry place?"
A: Essential oils are biologically active, which means that they're "alive," in a way. We take every precaution to make sure your item is as fresh as possible when shipped, but excessive heat and light degrade the "alive" properties of the oils, making them less therapeutic.
Heat and light will also make your blend go rancid faster, since we don't use any synthetic preservatives. Room temperature or cooler is perfect, and if you're worried that your room temperature could be too warm, refrigeration is fine for most blends.
Q: Do you make large quantities for wholesale prices?
A: We are a small company. That having been said, we certainly welcome inquiries about larger quantities, and may be able to offer a small discount. For example, if you would like to order several packages for guests at a wedding, we would be delighted to accommodate that request. A convo and ample advance notice would definitely be in order to arrange the details.
About essential oils
Q: What are essential oils?
A: Essential oils are potent, concentrated substances that, when inside the source plant, act as some part of the plant's immune system.
For example, lavender oil has a powerful healing ability because that's its job when the plant is injured.
As many as 1,000 plants (or more!) can be used to make a tiny bottle of oil! (That's strong stuff!) That's why we properly dilute the oils in a less-potent base, such as olive or jojoba oil, aloe vera, or beeswax.
