  1. Packaging! Finally Proud of Sniffies

    Beautiful job! And those bottles look like they're easier to open than most sniffie vials.
  2. Supplier for Lavender EO 40/42

    Yes, Lime Margarita!
  3. Supplier for Lavender EO 40/42

    I heard that their Margarita is really good --maybe even better than Sweetcakes'. It's on my list to try from them if I ever get around to ordering.
  4. Week/end plans?

    If it's any consolation...I live near Seattle, and we would think we'd been raptured if we got sunshine on any kind of regular basis. Last winter was SO dreary (worse than usual), and this one is turning out to be much the same. Oh, and we get lots of drizzling rain with the grey/white skies too. However, our temps are higher than yours. Still, don't wanna do anything outside when it's so wet and there's no sun (+ cold). I think we all (up here) need to have our heads examined.
  5. My First Sundae Candles

    Those look delicious! Bet they smell delicious too.
  6. E/O Blends for Hormone Balance

    Thanks for sharing this, Candybee. I had no idea there was something herbal you could take to help tinnitus. My son has a mild case of it. You said you eventually stopped taking the Ginkgo...did the tinnitus stay away then?
  7. FO in a diffuser?

    Hi all, I was just wondering if anyone here has tried using fragrance oils in a diffuser. Until just now when I read a review about someone putting some in their diffuser, I had thought they were for EO's only. Probably a stupid question.
  8. Lavender Sage?

    I was recently at Hobby Lobby, and I sniffed a candle there (can't remember the brand) called Lavender Sage. It was very pleasant, and I could smell both scents equally well. I knew I had the Pure Fragrance Oils Lavender Sage at home, and after sniffing it later, I was disappointed that it wasn't near as nice. I think the candle I smelled had more of sweetness to it, and wasn't so "astringent" smelling, for lack of a better word. So, I decided to try and sweeten mine up with some brown sugar FO. Then, I had some Frank and Myrrh sitting there that I'd just made soap with, so I thought I'd put some of that in too. I ended up with a pretty good smelling manly scent. But it was nothing like that candle! Anybody have any ideas for how to sweeten up the Lavender sage besides brown sugar? Is there a white sugar FO out there? LOL. Or maybe I need to start with a really sweet smelling lavender. Is there such a thing?
  9. Rose Geranium

    Yep, that's usually the case. Some places also sell Honeysuckle EO, but there is no such thing. Only honeysuckle Fragrance oil.
  10. DOLLAR TREE JARS? yay or nay?

    Where do you get your lids for the DT jars? I haven't seen any at DT.
  11. Displaying Candle Tins at a Show

    Nice! Not often you see amber jars. What kind of lids do they have (can't quite tell)? I'm also curious about how they burn when the wax gets low...being taller jars, does the flame struggle to get enough oxygen or has that not been an issue? I'm a newb at chandling.
  12. Satsuma FO

    Wow, that's a bummer!
  13. Satsuma FO

    TT, did you try the one that OT carries? They don't have a Satsuma, but they do have Satsuma Guava.
  14. Colonial Candle

    Hey folks, Colonial Candle has some good deals right now in their clearance section, plus you can get an extra 25% in clearance this week with the code CleanOut17. Thought this might be of interest to those of you who see the need for some R & D. ;-) Oh, and shipping is free after $30. Among other things, I bought 10 of their "French Quarter" Simmer Snaps (2.4 oz) at only .30 ea. after the code).
