My Canadian "sister" Redwings11 can send me her sample of this mist because I love it. To be perfectly honest, it really doesn't do all that much to improve my sleep (heck, melatonin, Z-Quil and even some Rx meds don't help much) but I absolutely love the smell of this stuff and I actually bought it to use as a fragrance. Now, the packaging does say it can cause skin irritation if applied topically but then this is the case with all essential oils or almost all - I think that they make your skin more photo-sensitive and perhaps do other things but I've been applying patchouli and other essential oils and blends for decades without a problem and the same applies to this stuff. I do like the fact that it makes bedding smell nice also. I would love to find a dedicated fragrance/perfume or even a body lotion with this scent because it is lovely, even if it doesn't put me to sleep.
