Use a combination of Pine, Lemon and Sweet Orange essential oils measured out to around 15 ml. There doesn’t have to be an exact measurement for diffusing oils, so we recommend using your own scent preferences to determine which essential oil you would like to stand out most in the blend.Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download
