Grapefruit Lime ~ "This hero scent is as popular for its story as it is for its rejuvenating aromatherapy properties and is loved the world over. Opening notes of sweetie grapefruit, lime, and basil blend with ambrosial, big hearted notes of green tea and petit grain. Its warm dry down lasts thorugh base notes of bamboo and cedarwood. The scent for women and men blends well with Vetiver Elemi for a signature peace fragrance."

For women and men looking for a new interpretation of the classic note, this scent is as comforting as soothing jasmine tea."
Orange Blossom ~ "Healing neroli (orange blossom) essential oil is known to reduce anxiety and has aromatheraputic benefits. This bright, fresh orange blossom blends gloriously with the lush, juicy freshness of mandarin, tangerine and bergamot. Known as the kind perfume, it comes with a warm heart of jasmine anchored with precious amber as a base note. This vegan perfume is for men and women who want a scent they can wear to work in the morning and layer with a bolder Rose Amber at night."
Patchouli Citrus ~ "This organic, fair trade patchouli essential oil has aromatherapy benefits to reduce tension. It is accented by wildly complimentary heart notes of sweet peony and rose geranium and base notes of sandalwood and amber. This is not the hippy scent of the past, but a modern, sexy rendition that required 25 versions before excellence was achieved. The fragrance is for men and women and blends well with Rose Amber for a sensual and free-spirited effect."
Rose Amber ~ "The rare and precious rose essential oil is famous for stimulating feelings of love, as well as for its aromatherapy benefits.
