EO - Rosalina

Rosalina oil is another relatively new Australian essential oil, it is beautiful, peaceful, calming and another great offering from the continent of Australia, it most certainly has a place amongst other essential oils Australia and most definitely the rest of the world produces.

 

Rosalina Oil is excellent for aromatherapists and masseurs, the oil is gentle, it can be applied neat (1 or 2 drops) to the skin, however it is better to use diluted in a carrier oil.

Having such an excellent amount of linalool (35-55%), the linalool content is calming and good for sleep. A massage oil experience with Rosalina oil or an hour or so of experience under a diffuser or oil burner would be beneficial. Combining a massage and then a separate diffuser experience with Rosalina oil should be highly beneficial.
