My goodness, it smells good in here!

Nothing like dropping and breaking a small bottle of essential oil on a tile floor to make a place smell good. I just quickly wiped it up, and left the rest and now wonder how long the fragrance will linger. I guess I should have saved the rag I wiped it up with, to add some intense fragrance elsewhere. (Smelly damp basement comes to mind) I hope I don't get any company soon that is bothered by smelly stuff, as I know 'smells' don't agree with a lot of folks. In the meantime, I'll just enjoy the Hawaiian Mist myself.

Lol* Considering you only need a drop or so of those oils I can only imagine the smell! ;) I bet visitors will smell it days after your nose has adjusted. Lol* Better than having a stinky house!!!

LOL... I've done this before, too! It was a vial of chamomile essential oil which I accidentally dropped and shattered on my bathroom tile floor.

I did actually think to save the paper towel used to wipe up the mess, and I put that very fragrant paper towel into the utility room of my house which is where I keep my worm bin (so it can sometimes get a bit rank in there due to composting)...

Let's just say my worm bin area and my bathroom both smelled unusually nice for several weeks! :)
