    Absolutely love this oil. So many uses.
    I recently bought a new pale pink handbag and the dye from my dark blue jeans rubbed onto my handbag and ruined it. Well that was until I rubbed a little of this oil onto the stained parts of my bag and it instantly took the dye off without harming or damaging my bag. Great for insect bites and freshening up a musty room. I even add a few drops to the cats litter box and my washing machine.

    I have had to switch my laundry to being hypoallergenic. I use Aware Laundry Liquid and add a couple of drops of Niaouli in – washing my clothes in a university laundromat, the in laws or any other washing machine that isn’t mine, my clothes come out clean, smelling great and my body is free from allergic reactions.
