This is a marvelous teacher and healer. This being the first time that I use the essential oil as opposed to the whole root I was a bit hesitant. I found that one drop is as powerful as a chew of root. Definitely dilute well and a small swish suffices. Less is always more with nature. Great product. Respect her..

I had a hard time finding this oil. I am glad I was able to find it here. It was also a much bigger bottle than I anticipated. Thank you for being a one stop shop for the majority of my needs.
