Anti-Viral activities/properties :
American journal of essential oils and natural products states that Oil vapours could have therapeutic benefits for people suffering from influenza, and possibly other membrane containing respiratory viruses. In vapour phase Citrus bergamia and Eucalyptus globulus were very active against influenza virus following exposures of only 10 minutes. Pelargonium graveolens and Cymbopogon flexuosus were also very active with 30 minutes exposure. This suggests that these oils in their vapour phases could be potentially useful in influenza therapy.

Thanks for the wonderful review Krupa, we're so glad to hear you like it :)
I toh really liked, I would mix the lemon grass in my shampoo and use it and my hair smelled nice and was shinier and soft.
Geranium I mixed with body cream and used everyday in college. It smelled nice and my skin would feel smooth. Also I thought it might repel insects. I would use all these in hos- tel.
As far as packaging is concerned, it was cute and easy to carry. It was hassle free.
I visited Divine aroma’s podium in Ambiente, Frankfurt with no clue about essential oil’s. I was offered geranium and lavender to try. It has been 2 months since i have been using them regularly. The quality is top of the line, I tried few other big brands to experiment, but none offer the purity as compared to DA’s products. I would recommend DA to anyone who is looking for high quality essential oils.
