oils

Postby AnnetteandBen » Wed Jul 04, 2007 6:05 pm

Hi all,

I know this has probably been brought up a thousand times before, so sorry but,

I like using lavender oil - put some in the washing machine and occasionally in the bucket. I also have some tea tree oil which I can't really stand the smell of - its not just a preg nose thing, it was also before I was preg. I added some to my bucket last week, and the nappies still smelt of it after their time in the machine and a whole day outside on a windy day (just to remind me it was actually dry last week for nearly a whole day :? ) and that's why I don't like it, for me it always seems to linger in the fabric whereas the lavender doesn't.

So what other oils could I try and where do you suggest I get them from?

Thanks fountains of all knowledge :D

You could try Neroli oil which is nice. Or I think someone said they had lime oil the other day, may have been Em. I got my last oils from a Mumzmall shop but I can't for the life of me remember what it was called, they were really good and I can't find it. Will let you know if I do.

It was probably me saying about lime. I love it so much i'm using it in all the washing! It smells really fresh. Grapefruit and manadarin are also nice

I do like the neroli I got...but not as much as the lime at the moment

Was it Incensed you bought from Annette? *incensed.me.uk*

That's the one - they were really good.
