      What's in PastTense?

      This blend is comprised of nine essential oils that work together to cool and calm the skin, while also providing a calming aroma.

      Wintergreen essential oil is primarily composed of methyl salicylate, which is widely known for providing a cooling, soothing sensation when applied topically.

      The refreshing aroma of Peppermint is cooling and invigorating. Peppermint has been cultivated for its beneficial properties for thousands of years.

      Frankincense promotes an atmosphere of peace and relaxation, as well as soothes the skin.

      There are four herb oils in this blend: Basil, Rosemary, Marjoram, and Cilantro. Their refreshing, herbaceous aromas contribute to the unique scent of PastTense, and their topical properties increase its efficacy.

      Lavender has a fresh floral scent and is soothing to the skin. As one of the most popular essential oils in the world, Lavender is widely known and used for its calming and relaxing aroma.

      Roman Chamomile is a floral oil like Lavender, sharing similar qualities. Many people find its aroma resembles the scent of apples! 

      How to Use PastTense

      PastTense should be applied to the neck, shoulders, forehead, or behind your ears. After a draining afternoon of staring at a computer screen, hunched over your desk at work, you might apply a small amount to your temples and the back of your neck. At the end of a particularly long, taxing day on your feet, you might massage PastTense into your feet, back, or shoulders.

      PastTense is incredibly potent, so you only need a small amount for it to be effective, and you may want to dilute it with Fractionated Coconut Oil if you have sensitive skin.
