Myrtle, Zest Essential Oil

Lemonier than lemon, both zest myrtle and lemon myrtle are here to add sunshine to your day. Zest Myrtle is similar to Lemon Myrtle yet this is a zestier variation in plant chemotype that zaps feelings of cloudiness and confusion. Shift your energy by sniffing the essence of this zesty plant that boosts your body to feel it's best.
"Can you smell lemon myrtle? I'm trying this incense for the first time. It's good for stress. Take a deep breath. That's it. You look like you need a little stress relief, if you don't mind me saying." ~Liane Moriarty, Big Little Lies
