I bought a sample vial of the Tantrika anointing oil, and I absolutely love it. I've been integrating The Tantrika oil into a long-term project of strengthening my root and sacral chakras, and I can say with certainty that this oil is strongly supporting my work. Thank you for creating this and for being in the right place at the right time!
