Aromaleigh v1’s Hot Stuff

This is a bit more coral than “red”. I was actually mentally anticipating a red, based on the site photo of this color. When I opened my final Aromaleigh order and saw the color in the jars, I honestly wondered if she hadn't run out, then mixed a batch that was somehow lighter than previous batches.
