  • Whew!

    Does it smell?- I opened the bottle and it nearly knocked me on my tail! Oh my! It has a burnt pie, thickly sweet, pungent odor. For me, I nearly lost my lunch. And it sticks with you. For a long, long time. I used it in an insect repellant and even when mixed with other oils it was too much. I couldn't bring myself to put it on my body so I can't attest to the effectiveness keeping bugs away. I'll try again in a much, much lower dose.

  • Very nice!

    This oil is very strong. The less you use, the better it smells. Even more so than any other essential oil I have used. When it is very strong, it has an unpleasant maple smell. When used in tiny, trace amounts, it has an aromatic, sort of woody-minty smell that goes very well with lavender and chamomile. I know someone else is going to wonder like I did: This particular oil DOES attract cats, and it also repels insects. Good tip: Don't wear this as a bug repellant when hiking in areas with big cats.... They like it too. ;)
