Sorry to disappoint but this oil does not contain any actual Bourbon whiskey! The term comes from one of the regions where Geranium was cultivated - the Island of Reunion which was known as 'Ile de Bourbon' up until its renaming by the French in 1973.
If you need something to lift your spirits up, however, look no further than this oil! It has a seductive, sweet aroma that can help reduce tension, irritability, alleviate symptoms of stress, anxiety, and fatigue, and manage emotional turbulence.
Other than its benefits to your emotional wellbeing, this oil has a wide range of other uses! Diffuse, massage, or add to your personal inhaler during your menstrual period to help regulate your emotions. Dilute to 2-3% for topical application (1% for the face) to help even out skin tone, delay signs of ageing, reduce redness, and give your skin a dewy complexion!

If pregnant or under a doctor's care, consult with your practitioner.
For external use only.
Essential oils are natural, but they are also concentrated. We recommend following basic safety precautions when using your oils:
Essential oils should not be ingested, unless it is under the guidance of a suitably qualified practitioner.
Do not use oils undiluted on the skin, unless the instructions permit otherwise. Many oils can cause irritation when placed directly on skin, particularly on sensitive areas such as the eyes or mouth. Some oils (particularly those in the citrus family) can cause photosensitivity if used prior to going out in the sun - please check instructions carefully.
If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should consult your healthcare practitioner prior to using essential oils. As a general guideline, oils should be avoided for the first four months of pregnancy and never used undiluted. Some oils should be avoided during pregnancy: Bay, Basil, Cedar wood, Clary Sage, Comfrey, Cypress, Fennel, Ginger, Hyssop, Jasmine, Juniper, Lemongrass, Marjoram, Melissa, Myrrh, Peppermint, Rose, Rosemary, Sage & Thyme.
Children can be particularly affected by essential oils. Some oils should not be used in children under the age of 7, and specific dilution ratios are recommended depending on the essential oil and the age of the child. We recommend consulting an appropriate practitioner prior to using oils on children.
