We infuse raw organic jojoba oil with the finest wild sacred tree resins + its essential oil to create our Aromatic Sacred Resin Oils. These holistic aromatic oils are imbued with the qualities of the whole resin and may be used as a personal fragrance (lasting 2-4 hours) or as a part of your self-care ritual.
