As an herbalist and natural living expert I have had the challenge of learning as much about essential oils, herbs and the lifestyle that surrounds this exquisite path. One thing I will never forget is the experience I have had whilst trying out essential oils from the company known as Hollow & Ridge. I received 3 small bottles (5 ml) of essential oils that were blended masterfully with lavender as a base and a hand full of the best essential oils i have ever had the chance to experience in my life.
Simply put, although quite expensive, Hollow & Ridge essential oils called, Arouse, Calm and Balance are just top of the line oils that can even be classified as therapeutic grade oils. Owner Issa Dixon, got her passion as a child, she has been making these oils by hand in small batches and has not forgotten about quality when making the oils. I did try all three oils a few times and tried them out on other members of my family as well as a friend of mine. Everyone that tried these oils was impressed to say the least.
A friend of mine was quoted as saying that the Balance formula made her feel quite calm as opposed to the product actually called “calm”, which made her feel more relaxed as well, but not as much as the Patchouli blended “Balance” oil. I used the oils on the skin and loved how they left no lasting negative effects, they actually made my skin feel warm and soft. The oils wore off themselves but not for a very long time and they scents were left where ever I was.
I believe these are the finest oils money can buy but I must admit, at $38.00 a bottle for such a small bottle, I am in no position to afford this product and never will be. However, if you are into essential oils, natural healing and natural medicine, I would say that you get what you pay for. That means these oils are the real deal, not some watered down stuff you will not benefit from. Over all, I have to say 5 stars is downgrading these 3 essential oils offered by Hollow & Ridge but on a scale that reaches maximum at 5 stars, they hold these stars strong.
