My man and I were both overdue for a massage, so we gave each other one with this excellent lavender oil. It was so relaxing and sensual - we used before some really hot morning sex, but would also be great at night, or right before bed to help get to sleep. I'm also going to incorporate it into yoga sessions for the end of class. The smell is authentic lavender, it is a favourite scent of mine so I always appreciate when it's natural and the real thing. Will be buying it again for sure!!!
