    @shazran -- MakeMineIrish posted that in 2013, so it's been awhile, and fragrance oils come and go. The best way to find out if SweetCakes still carries this dupe is to visit to the SweetCakes website and check.

    One of my faves is really simple. Sandalwood FO (because I cant afford the EO) and Lime EO. It is a great unisex scent.

    My absolute all time favourite EO mix is equal orange and cinnamon. Trouble with that combination is that both EOs have a high potential for skin contact allergies. When I first got my EOs I saw the warning right there on the bottle warning me not to place it directly onto the skin and thought, "Huh, what do they know" and immediately placed the oil combination on my pulse points (yes, at school I was THAT child who could not resist a dare.) I smelled wonderful but within about 2 minutes I had hives at each place I had put the EOs and my skin was burning and itchy. Since then I have been afraid to use either of these in soap in case I end up with an all over skin reaction. I would like to mix them with a carrier oil and use them as a "perfume". Any thoughts on the ratio of carrier oils:EO's I might be able to use for a "perfume"? I did look at using a FO but apparently FOs for cinnamon also have the same potential for skin allergies :(

    One of my most popular mixes taht I also love is Patchouli, with a hint of Peppermint and just a couple of drops of Lemongrass. I love peppermint and patchouli so I use them in almost equal parts, but the patchouli is meant to be the main focal point of this blend but mix it up as you wish!

    Another combination I really love, and it's a great calming, natural blend is Lavender, Cedarwood, and Tea Tree. It's so great!!!

    I like Cilantro and Peppermint or Cilantro and Lime or Lemon or Orange. I find people either love it or hate cilantro.... And most hate it

    I like Lavender and Yuzu. 4:1 or 3:1, I can't remember what it is.

    Eucalyptus, mint, and bergamot. Helps my stress and headaches, but for some reason when I made a shower fizzy that was 50% eucalyptus mint and 50% bergamot it smells like a marshmallow. I love the effect, and I am keeping it, but it threw me for a loop.

    I wanted to share a blend I make. I call it balance. It is calming and refreshing at the same time. Into a 500 ml bottle I weigh:

    2.5 oz. Lavender
    2.4 oz. 5 fold Lemon
    1.7 oz. Egyptian Geranium
    1.2 oz. Lime or Key Lime
    .8 Pine
    .4 Rosemary


    I use it mostly in CP soap. When I first started making it I privately called it UNbalance because I hadn't been making soap for very long and wasn't used to all the smells. I just wanted to get outside. But my family now tells me my nose is fried.
