"There's a few things I've learned in life:
always throw salt over your left shoulder,
keep rosemary by your garden gate,
plant lavender for good luck,
and fall in love whenever you can."

our innovative mixed oil - when there is a very heavy second bloom of the angustifolia flowers we produce an oil which is a distillate of mixed spica and angustifolia biomasses that has a distinctive aroma all its own and works particularly well in a vapouriser. *qualities and uses*- an energizing and invigorationg aroma with overtones of the sweet angustifolia
