This oil scent was different (again) to my past Myrtle experience. I've always known we connect scents to our memories, establishing our moods etc...each time I think "ugh, this doesn't smell like my..." - I end up loving it for what it is...loving the differences & I love as my "collection" just seems to grow with many choices.

I bought this oil to use for many of the ways listed in the description. I have not used it for all of the things that it says it is useful for but so far it has been great for bedtime calming and it smells great. I was pleasantly surprised!
