Hands down rose and sandlewood! I buy rose absolute, as it is not nearly as pricey, not as fancy, but at least I get the smell.

Lately I've been diffusing jasmine oil and I love it! As it is so expensive though I buy the 10% dilution.

Rose is also a favourite and I like it very much in my skin-care products, but it is so extremely pricey! So if I want a nice floral smell I stick to my good old geranium EO

I don't care for jasmine at all, but I do love rose!!! I use rose hydrosol and rosewater instead of the EO in order to keep the costs reasonable. MMMmmmmm.....

I just found a very yummy smelling dish liquid soap yesterday for $1.99... Mrs. Meyer geranium scent. Mmmmmm.... Can you imagine WANTING to hand wash dishes? AND, I didn't even use gloves because I wanted the scent to stay on my hands..... Ahhhh....

Yes since I also usually add a drop or two of geranium EO to my dishwashing liquid (I put a teaspoon of grated plain olive oil soap into a small bowl and then add hot water and the EO).

And if you use natural soap you'd never have to use gloves again when washing the dishes!

geranium is so nice. i didnt have great luck with mrs. meyers products. the have a little e.o and a lot of fragrance oil. so i got an anaphylactic reaction from it.

but i am glad you like it. mrs. meyers packaging is very nice.

Interesting! Thanks for sharing the details. I was in a hurry when I found it at the discount store and didn't read the label like I usually do. Personally, I have very few reactions these days, but I certainly have had my fair share over the years. I hope others see this who need to be careful.
