My All-Day, Everything Oil

Updated: Sep 4, 2019

Sleep and slumber or the daily work grind, this oil is the ONE oil I use all day long. I diffuse it in my office and I use it in my sleep roller with lavender and Freddie's diffuser at night. It's literally my staple.


And... it's perfect for this fall season.


This month the oil we are featuring is Cedarwood.
