We are cheating today and double reviewing lavender and eucalyptus essential oil by Artizen, which I use in my diffuser and as a cologne. I chose the Artizen brand because of their high ratings and reasonable prices. A few months ago, another brand of Eucalyptis spoiled, so I am leery of buying too much. Artizen sells a one ounce bottle, which I purchased, but they also sell four ounce bottles.
The eucalyptus oil creates a relaxing spa atmosphere while the lavender produces a calm feeling. The eucalyptus doesn’t seem to be as potent as the lavender. I add 10-15 drops of lavender and it is noticeable. The eucalyptus requires 15-20. Since they are different oils, this makes sense.
Essential oils are superior to chemical air fresheners. They produce a natural, healthy scent and are a calm, positive addition.
I dislike the artificial smell of colognes, so I use the oil on my wrists and neck as a substitute. People often compliment the fragrance. I sometimes apply at night to help me sleep. The label suggests diluting, but I take the risk and apply a miniscule amount. I sometimes apply at night to help me sleep. The ingredients contain the oils and nothing else, so in my non-Chemist opinion, a small undiluted amount is as safe as perfumes and colognes.
They are packed in a small box without bubble wrap and include a glass dropper. I was surprised they didn’t include wrapping, but mine arrived intact, so the risk must be low. Their seller page claims the bottles are UV resistant and they seem to be.
