I still have to take my allergy medicine. However when I get those times of break through nasal running ,stuffiness and sneezing , the lavender essential oil is great. I just put a few drops on a cotton ball and inhale. Within seconds the sneezing stops and also the runny nose stops. The stuffiness goes away in just a couple of minutes. I use it at night too to keep sinuses open. I plan on getting a diffuser very soon to use in bedroom with the lavender oil. I would and will buy this again if only for the allergy relief.
Beautifully-scented lavender. Visited a lavender farm a few months ago and this oil smells just like the one they extracted at the farm. Pure and long-lasting lavender scent! This is my 2nd oil from this seller. I first bought high-quality tea tree oil that eliminated my daughter's eczema within a week. Excellent customer service and high-quality products! Same quality as Young Living or other brands but a quarter of the price!
Very disappointed with this bottle of lavender oil. I have purchased this in the past with good results. Unfortunately not this time. I knew immediately something was off when I took the cap off. The oil has a strong very unpleasant woody smell. Smells almost like sting bug (sorry this is the closest description I could relate the awful smell to). I am in the process of returning this bottle for a refund and searching for a new company to purchase my lavender oil through.
The oil shipped quickly, and was of great quality. I used it to scent satchels for storage drawers, and also to use with diffuser necklaces... that I gave as gifts to 5 Lovely ladies... My friends raved about how long the oil continued to put off a scent from their necklaces. We will definitely be ordering from this company again.
The first time I ordered this, I was pleased with the smell. It smelled very similar to the Young Living brand. I just reordered it and the second bottle smells nothing like the first. It was a weird chemical like smell...very unpleasant. I’m getting a refund and won’t be ordering this again due to the inconsistency in the product. Very disappointed since I really enjoyed the first bottle 😕
I absolutely love the smell of lavender! I used this before bed in my essential oil diffuser. 2-3 drops were plenty to make the whole room smell like lavender. The smell itself has a very calming and relaxing effect on the body, so it's great to use before bed to calm the nerves and erase the day away. The bottle is similar to other essential oil bottles and although it looks tiny it will last you a long time. It's .33oz, but at only 2-3 drops per use you can get months out of it. I also like to use this when cleaning. I usually put a few drops on a cotton ball and put it in the vacuum cleaner. It makes the whole house smell like the essential oil, I love it!
Well I don't know why people are saying this smells like cat piss, but however my bottle does not smell like that. It's actually a very pleasant scent. That is, if you could actually smell it. This is definitely really diluted. It's very weak. Even with this in my small bathroom with a diffuser I cannot smell it unless I stick my nose up to it.
Lastly it doesn't even have a dropper, but a very crappy unreliable drip top.
Although it smells good if I stick my nose right up against the bottle or the diffuser. This oil does not so it's job. It's very very week smelling no matter how many drops I add it doesn't increase the scent output.
It would be a good product if it wasn't stupidly weak smelling.
Bought this for my pregnant wife to use in a home-made stretch marks lotion, to overcome the strong cocoa butter smell. Plan was to use a few drops with the lotion.
However, straight out the bottle itself, the fragrance wasn't strong enough. It seems she would need to add a lot more of this to get the promised Lavender smell, which is not how the item description is. Unfortunately, per doctor's advice, using too much is not recommended in her state and hence this is useless for us.
May be we got a bad one, I do not know. Waited 6 days to get this, and wife still has to deal with the Cocoa butter smell. Will search Amazon for a different one.
Feels like we just wasted money and time on this. :(.
UPDATE: Initially I gave my honest opinion about this oil. Then I received a phone call *voicemail* stating that Healing Solutions was sending me yet another bottle of this stuff and asking if I would like to call back and discuss my review. Ok, I thought fair enough, send another bottle just in case there was something wrong with the one I bought. Well, I got the second bottle and there is no difference from the first. It is the same weak, stinky urine like scent as the first one.
Then I get yet another call *voicemail* asking if I received the second bottle and for me to give my honest review of this second bottle. Really? Was there some question as to the honesty contained in my first review. Look, I hoped that the first bottle I bought was bad because of some possible distillation issue or whatever, but then I got the second bottle. And, well, it stinks just like the first. It is just as weak and just as nasty. This is not French Lavender -unless by french you mean having harvested it out of the sewers of Paris.
I looked on both bottles to see exactly what type of lavender was contained therein and found absolutely nothing mentioning the type other than "Lavender oil" huh? Lavender oil, what is lavender oil? Do you mean Lavender essential oil or some type of carrier oil with a hint of lavender in it or possibly some synthetic enhancement? Seems your ingredients list is pretty vague. KIS and Plant Guru at least list the botanical names and my regular supplier lists the origin of the essential oil. Not only that but take a look at the photo that you, Healing Solutions, show for the product and the photo of the actual product I received. Notice a little difference? Mine only says "Premium Lavender" Theirs says "Premium French Lavender". So one thing is advertised and another thing is sold. Not good.
The oil I purchased from Healing Solutions as well as the second bottle of oil I received from Healing Solutions both stink. The scent is bitter and weak. French lavender should be a sweet floral scent not one that reminds me to check and see if my cat's potty box needs cleaning.
Please, Healing Solutions, no more phone calls. I cannot give any more honest reviews than these. Your product is lacking and I am very disappointed that I purchased it. Lesson learned. ________________________________________________________________________________ ORIGINAL: This is not a good scent. It seems to have a faint urine like odor with just a tiny floral note and no green notes at all. It fades quickly. I'll stick to the French lavender I usually purchase even if its price is higher.
