Patchouli and Petitgrain is one of my favorite essential oil blends! I have used it to make perfume-and it's a big hit with people who experience it in person. But that's not really what I'm posting about.
I was at a nursery and went into the herb section to see what they had. They had some Patchouli plants. I was always under the impression that the plant was not the most pleasant smell-boy, was I WRONG! I bought one for myself and a friend at work who adores Patchouli. We are excited!
I also got some really gorgeous smelling Petitgrain oil today. It's very sweet and even more Neroli like than the Bigarade grade. And it's from Paraguay-I was pleasantly surprised.
I have been working A LOT and I have gotten mildly behind in orders, and since my hubby was out of town for 3 weeks we are massively behind on yard work. I dread it but I refuse to put out mulch on Memorial weekend. i have been working 6 days a week and working overtime and even working double time all month. I intend to relax for the 3-day weekend!
If it ever quits raining I will be getting more flower essences done. I have arnica, roses, lavender and valerian blooming but it ain't looking good next week. Maybe this weekend............
