We’re back for another unboxing of the Plant Therapy Oil of the Month club! This month, the essential oil that lucky Plant Therapy VIPers got to get their hands on was Finger Root, and I’ll be honest… I love this scent.
It’s in the same family as ginger, but it has a very sweet and earthy smell. Considering its relation to ginger, it does have a similar “burn” when you sniff it, but it’s not overwhelming. Personally, I think I might have found a new favorite scent! Plus, its benefits are also pretty great, including reducing nausea, relieving dry and itchy scalp, and can help reduce congestion.
If you aren’t signed up for the Plant Therapy Oil of the Month Club, the bottom line is I think you guys missed out this month. This scent and this oil is going to be a huge hit with essential oil lovers, I can just imagine it! So, let’s just go ahead and move on to the stuff y’all likely want to know regarding this oil: the product details.
