Rose, lavender, black pepper, cedarwood, coriander seed, pine, spearmint and orange.
Part of plant used: unripe fruit

Precautions: Can be skin irritating, so a low dosage is recommended. (a little goes a long way) Dilute well; Tisserand recommends a dermal maximum of 1.75%. A patch test should be performed before use for those with sensitive skin. Add drop by drop to your blends until the desired effect is achieved. Avoid in pregnancy, breast feeding, endometriosis, estrogen-dependent cancers, and children less than five years old.
