This oil is exceptional. This is my first order from Wild As The Wind, having finally discovered a company that not only supplies 100% pure essential oils but is ethically responsible in it’s entire approach. I have previously purchased oils that claim to be pure, but which I’ve since discovered, are not! I use essential oils in a diffuser, mainly for stress, anxiety and insomnia. Previous ‘fake’ oils have not even emitted a scent, never mind anything else! I put just 4 drops of Wild Is The Wind’s citronella oil in 140 ml of water and the smell emanated throughout every room in my home! It has the most clean, fresh and invigorating lemon zesty smell which I find uplifting and refreshing. It definitely upped my spirits and I can’t wait to try the other oils I purchased. I also received a hand written note from Rachel with the order, which was such a lovely personal touch. I will be purchasing more products without a doubt.
