I’m going to return to give a full run-down of this magical oil after I purchase a larger bottle, which is what I’m here today to do. I’d like to re-run the testing I accomplished with the sample. I can say without question, I almost drank this when I first opened it! Move over, Melissa! Moldavian Dragon’s Head is here to steal your thunder! I’ve not compared the COAs quite thoroughly enough to know if they’ve got the same therapeutic properties to be used interchangeably, but my olfactory senses can tell you that this isn’t only a perfect substitute for Melissa EO, it’s *better*. It has an effervescent quality to it, somewhat similar to what Davana or Damiana imparts, except without that almost sickly, boozy facet present in both of those. To me, this is like Melissa’s younger sibling- so much less serious, but no less beautiful. Just more playful, uplifting, and bright. While Melissa goes to college, gets a degree, a suit, a career, married, picket fence, spouse, kids…. Moldavian Dragon’s Head starts off following the Dead, ends up backpacking around South America and then Europe, a year working at a fish hatchery in Alaska, another two living in an Italian coastal village before heading off to Ukraine to help defend against tyrannical invasion. When all is said and done, they settle on beautiful island in the Black Sea, not far from Moldova, but also totally in a no man’s land and writes a future cult classic novel beloved by generations to come. Melissa finds commercial success, and Moldavian Dragonhead fulfills her innate spiritual quest from day to day to day, finding a success of the soul most of us only dream of. I said I wouldn’t go on and on until after I purchased more than just a study sample, and yet, I couldn’t help myself! I am infatuated with this oil, and I’m not sure if I’ll even be able to use it all up after I buy a larger bottle. It’s one I’ll want to hoard and save for that truly special project. I hope I can push myself to just experience it as it is, in real time. Anything else would be contradictory to its very nature, I believe. You want this oil in your life. If you even vaguely love Melissa, and like Damiana, and at least appreciate davana (davana is one of my least favorite oils on its own, but I more than respect its ability to transform a blend), then you don’t want to miss this experience. I’m almost afraid to hit “send” on this review, because I want to keep this little secret all to myself. Yet again, I feel that would be disrespectful to this oil. This oil, which has me placing Moldova, the least visited Europe nation, on my bucket list; an unexpected consequence of doing all I can to understand everything about this precious apothecary and perfumery ingredient. Please, experience this, you won’t regret it, but I beg of you, leave some for me.
