Each of our Blends and Single Note Essential Oils are named after a song that fits both in name and in feeling.

At music festivals people were always asking “do you have an oil to go with that” when purchasing an essential oil necklace. And so from customer demand I went on a quest to find high quality oils at an affordable price.

Cam suggested names from favourite songs. From a cool Autumn day at Clear lake came; Big Time Sensuality, Misty Mountain Hop and Let it Be to name a few. It was more time consuming than you would think but collaborative and fun while we drank wine and whiskey.
