Shirley, as an initial guess: is it possible that someone in your household mixed your patchouli essential oil with orange EO? Sweet orange essential oil blends well with patchouli and is a somewhat common combination.
Thanks, Gretchen! :)

Wow - thank you for sharing your story. It's important for us to spread the word and share our stories so that those who plagiarize others will think twice and take the time to understand the consequences to themselves. Robert Tisserand mentioned on my FB that a company in China has taken and created a "Robert Tisserand" brand without his consent. It's amazing all the many ways that unscrupulous individuals find to fraudulently profit from other people's intellectual property and outstanding reputations. It sounds like they took the entire Green Valley Aromatherapy site and were reselling it as an actual site template? Protecting our intellectual property including trademarks is an essential part of business. Thank you for sharing the search tip! lol, I do cringe every time I do particular content searches as I know I'm likely to find yet another site that has lifted my work. I'm pretty numb to it all by now, but I still dread the time that's involved.
Thanks for your comments, Sandra. Ginger is already becoming my favorite essential oil this autumn. I'm finding myself cooking more often with it as well. Oatmeal made with Red Mill rolled oats and cooked with a little grated fresh ginger, and topped off with a bit of ground cinnamon, clove and nutmeg. It's heavenly on a chilly fall morning.
I get them from time to time as well, Tiffany, and I couldn't agree more. Lavender and spearmint are my personal faves when I find a headache coming on. Thanks for your comment. I'm looking forward to checking out the healthy lifestyle tips on your blog. -Wendy
Hi Marlene, I'm glad that you enjoyed the tincture post. I'm a huge fan of mint as well! You might enjoy my post "Growing and Enjoying Peppermint, Spearmint and Other Mint Plants:" Thanks for your comment! -Wendy
Hi Deanna! What an interesting story, and I love the lively and humorous spin of how you share it. I couldn't agree more about how wonderful it is to be able to use more gentle, natural ingredients like lavender essential oil instead of toxic ones. I'll take lavender essential oil anyday over the harsh, toxic aroma of chemical-based insecticides. Thanks so much for sharing your story and experiences! -Wendy
Thanks for stopping by and for your kind comments, Elise! I am in the midst of peaking at your blog, and am quite intrigued. I find the beauty, fluidity, poise and devotion of ballet to be quite extraordinary. I look forward to learning more through your posts and interviews. Take good care, and keep in touch.
Thanks, dM - It's always a pleasure to work with and keep in touch with you. :)
Thank you for your comment, Miika! I am glad to know very little about ant infestations. In my situation, the essential oil spray took care of my problem. -Wendy
An absolute yes on the ginger! :) Overall, I was quite pleased with this blend when I diffused it yesterday, and the ginger sets the blend off perfectly. Thank you for your lovely wellwishes, Marge. You are such a sweetheart. I am thrilled at the sensitive, open-minded, creative, funny and intelligent young woman she is becoming. For the gift of even having a small role in the person she is blossoming into, I am indeed beyond proud. (And as parents, we all know that our ability to influence is challenged by the time our teens spend with both good and not-so-good teachers, friends, musical preferences, the television, computers, smart phones, and so on). ;)
Oh my goodness, Marge... my personal "stash" of Lemon Balm (Melissa) Hydrosol is out and I haven't replenished it for awhile. You are so right about its benefits to oily skin, and am glad you pointed that out. To elaborate further on Lemon Balm, I much prefer the hydrosol for facial use, but those who grow it can make a tincture using AromaWeb's Herbal Tincture Recipe:
