A new Sandalwood, Santalum Album, 2012 distillation from Tamil Nadu. I hadn’t planned on more Sandalwood this year, but this specimen entranced us all.
We’re selling off Orange Blossom and Melissa to make room for new. We are SLASHING the prices of our existing stock of Orange Blossom Absolute 10% dilution (only 5 and 2 mls left) and English Melissa (and its 10% dilution.) Prices have never been this low. Save 40 to 50%.
We haven’t had much time for blogging so far this year… only four articles in the entire first quarter.
- I wrote a blog about a caller who said one of our oils couldn’t possibly be real, because their dealer charged almost 8 times as much. It Can’t Be…
- Dena and Christi blogged about Dena’s first experience with our Dalmation Sage.
- A helpful article about another way to deal with solid (or very thick) essential oils.
- A cautionary article about a truly bad experience with internal use of essential oils.
- In answer to a question: how to further dilute our 10% dilutions and anointing oils for full body use.

Facebook and LinkedIn Snippets:
From Facebook — Tension Headache suggestions shared by our friends:
Jennifer Chase recently wrote: I just want to quickly share a mix people may want to explore for tension headaches. Meeting fiscal year deadlines on top of the early spring pollination was literally knocking me down with tension headaches. I went through me treasures (books and EOs) and came up with a mix that has worked extremely well for me. I used jasmine, lemon, roman chamomile, and rose abs. in a base that part Arnica CO2 (in coconut oil from Nature’s Gift ) and grape seed oil. I apply a few drops to the back of my neck and within minutes I get complete relief from the headache. If I do this in the morning before work and in the evening when I get home, I have a much more pleasant day overall.
A blend I’d never have thought of, but I can see how it would be effective…and smell like perfume as well. Wondering about adding a few drops of Cape Chamomile, or using instead of the Roman…for us it is THE de-stressor.
Arnica and Heli
My friend and mentor Colleen K. Dodt wrote on Facebook:
“Marge Clark I have once again relied upon the magic in your Arnica/Heli oil! My daughter came home from Fla. with a badly sprained foot. Rest and only 2 applications of this lovely blend and you can see healing. Thank you! ♥ The scent makes the healing double as I feel it as well.”
Facebook is also the place that we post “low stock” alerts if we are about to run out of something; where we will ask for feedback on changes we are contemplating, where we announce spur of the moment special sales and give-aways, and, of course, the first place we announce new or back in stock products. If you really don’t want to become involved in FaceBook (and I can understand that!) most of our FB posts are also shared on Twitter, and featured on the front page of our website. We don’t want you to miss out on the excitement, the fun, or, most of all, the BARGAINS!
Links shared on our FB page
Katharine Koeppen at Aromaceuticals shared HER go to stress blend right now is Cape Chamomile and Frankincense (a boswellia carterii). (If you are in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area and looking for a “face to face” practioner, I highly recommend Katherine. Her level of expertise is amazing.)
We shared a formula for Skunk Spray from the Essential Herbal Blog. We are reminded “tis the season.”
Robert Tisserand wrote of recent research proving that, contrary to much hysteria in the press a couple of years ago, Lavender, and its essential oil, are NOT estrogenic.
An article showing recent research indicating that Triclosan, common ingredient in “antibacterial soaps” is not only not effective, but is actually harmful to those who use it.
Teri Roberts wonderfully comprehensive blog article about Aromatherapy for Migraines. Teri was kind enough to recommend us as the supplier of everything she mentioned!
We shared a wonderfully comprehensive series of articles regarding aromatherapy and the Chakras.

Lawn Chemicals are linked to Canine Lymphoma…an article from The Whole Dog Journal.
Quote of the Month
April is a promise that May is bound to keep. — Hal Borland
A gush of bird-song, a patter of dew, A cloud, and a rainbow’s warning, Suddenly sunshine and perfect blue—An April day in the morning.
— Harriet Prescott Spofford
The lyric sound of laughter Fills all the April hills The joy-song of the crocus, The mirth of daffodils.
— Clinton Scollard
