I have purchased Thyme Oil, Tea Tree Oil and a glass dropper bottle. All were of excellent quality, and very low cost. Shipping was very fast.
This essential oil smells fantastic! I cannot wait to use it when I make "Brown Windsor Soap". WF Med consistantly offers THE best prices on essential oils anywhere - and the quality is fantastic. Thank you!
