Oh, the aroma of coffee, I just love smelling a freshly brewed pot. Funny thing...I really don't like drinking coffee. I have always thought the smell was better than the taste, I would rather drink tea. When I found out there was coffee essential oil, I knew I had to try it.
Coffee essential oil lets you recreate that magical eye opening scent. It perks up the senses and evokes alertness. It's a great one to diffuse in the morning while you are getting ready for the day.
If you are a coffee lover or just love the aroma of a cup of coffee, you will absolutely adore coffee essential oil.
