Night time calming
When my day and my diet have not been quite what they should, I find this aroma calming. I also like to cut it with almond oil and apply topically to the abdomen to aid in digestion.

Great EO for sleep!
This EO is especially effective if you have difficulty falling to sleep. I add it to Tranquility EO when diffusing and also rub a couple drops from the bottle directly on my wrists. Yes, it is thick...and does not drop from the bottle easily like other EO's. My best recommendation to that is to use a glass dropper in place of the European dropper and lid...works perfectly! (Available online or at a pharmacy.) The smell is not my favorite, but grows on you and is much better when blended for diffusing...love the combination of Tranquility and Vetiver.
Love RMO!

Under appreciated Essential Oil
Love it except for the fact that after a while it doesn't come out & I have to take the inside stopper off each time I use it. It helps me stay calm, no tremors when used twice a day. Have started using it on scars since it's suppose to help heal. Too soon to tell yet though.

Do not like the scent
I hate to given an oil one-star, but scent is a big part of using oils and I simply cannot tolerate the scent of this. Too bad you can't scratch-n-sniff the computer screen!

Randall A on Aug 14, 2017
I bought the 5ml bottle but it is nice. It is super slow to come out so that is a minus but if you turn it upside down for a little bit and then quickly turn it upright and take off the plastic bottle part so that the side you don't see is facing your hand (the part that sticks into the glass), oil will come out that way faster or you can tap it to your hand to have the oil on your hand in a shorter amount of time. If I got the 15ml I might have been able to put at dropper into the top.

I have never been able to get a single drop to come out of the bottle, please tell me how I can get it to come out? I'd really like to use it!

BEST ANSWER: Many components play a part in the viscosity (thickness) of an oil. Because essential oils come from a variety of plants (flowers, leaves, herbs, grasses, tree barks, etc.), they differ in viscosity, scent, and color. Thicker oils typically come from the resin or root of the tree or are extracted with the cold press method. Some oils grow thicker and more potent as they age.

If you’re having problems with your oils dropping from the bottle, here are some quick tips:

1. These droppers also work best when held horizontally (to the side) instead of vertically (upside down).
2. Warm the bottle by holding in hands, placing in a bowl of warm water (to prevent damaging the label put the bottle in a ziplock bag before placing in water)
3. Widen the holes on the orifice reducer with a sterile pin
4. Take the orifice reducer off of the bottle and use a pipette.
