Recipes & Impressions - Yours  


Isabelle G.: In diffusion "I love Rosemary, Ylang and Grapefruit at first sight".  

Simon F.: "Small synergy in diffusion this morning at the beginning of my last study session: 6 drops of Ylang-ylang and 3 drops of Rosemary verbenone. It's a very nice blend. Ylang-ylang calms me down, anchors me in the present moment, while Rosemary verbenone brings a freshness and therefore gives me energy. The best of both worlds! " 

Philippe N.: "Ylang-ylang EO and Patchouli EO. There is also Black Pepper EO. I use them mainly in diffusion, in the shampoo or on my body, diluted in jojoba oil, as a perfume."  

Ginette H.: "For the bath: rose geranium, ylang-ylang, rosemary."
