Caution: Possible sun sensitivity due to citrus essential oil (lemon) as one of the blend’s ingredients.
German Chamomile: German Chamomile has a calming aroma that can help dispel anger, stabilize emotions, soothe and clear the mind, and create feelings of peace and patience. It can be diffused, directly inhaled or applied topically “neat,” without a carrier oil.
