The best oil for sleep, bar none. Blends best with florals and spices. Tends to overpower…use sparingly!
I can't think of one essential oil that I have received from Miricle Botanicals that I haven't loved.
Excellent for relaxation! Works great in a sleep blend with Catnip, Chamomile, and lavender.
Cats also love it. Use very sparingly mixed with Catnip and rub a tiny amount on cat toys. Crazy happy kitties!
I had never smelt this oil before. It was so bad I had to remove it from the box with all my oils and wrap it in its own plastic bag In not sure of all Valerian smells thin badly but it had my looking for something that had rotted when I discovered it was the oil. Hopefully I’ll get brave enough to blend it and diffuse it
