These oils combined in our silky smooth massage base can help awaken and refresh, whilst clearing the sinuses and the mind. Applied to the soles of the feet before bed may also help to ease congestion and ensure a pleasant nights sleep.
All three herbal extracts are used for the upper respiratory tract, to help ease congestion and clear the sinuses. The oils are similarly used in rubs and balms for the chest and sinuses as well as being inhaled to help improve concentration and focus.
