I used to burn this oil and it gave the room a lovely smell till I read that the fumes were not good!

I gradually stopped doing this also because a few times I forgot to refill the top part of the burner and the candle was burning and there was nothing to heat, so I figured it could be dangerous to do this.

I now have a patchouli one that I use as a perfume, though the other day when I got in the car, my kids all screamed at me because I "smellt" so strong! I can't smell it for more than a minute or two but I guess when you put it on, you get used to it...

I also put some in the bath tub when I have a bath which is infrequently, but it makes my skin lovely!

No. I am trying to use up all the ones I have that I no longer use. I do put a few drops in a nice hot bath occasionally. I was thinking that I may use them to make room sprays, as it would be cheaper and more natural than anything from the shops. I will have to Google how to do that.
From memory I think that you need a smidge of both glycerine and Isocol (or vodka) to hold the oil suspened in water, if that's any help :-))

Thanks Rice. Got all these oils so might as well use them for something!!!

I use too.
But not now, I just buy the smelly candles, much more simple (for me).
I do like a nice smelling room, I may think about them this year.
Only Tea tree oil.. I use it as an antiseptic
no but my partner does body anburn
I love them but I am tapering off. My well known brand eletric oil burner lost it's mind and singed my benchtop so it got it's cord cut off and went to the place that pyromaniac oil burners go. Then I watched The Checkout trash the reputation of "essential" oils as having no credence at all other than smelling nice and giving us the placebo effect of feeling good. Apparently "essential" means nothing particularly magical regarding oils. I was disappointed :(( Anyway, I'm still going to use my eucalytpus oil for washing and waft my aniseed oil under my nose when I feel like a "hit" of wonderful liquorice that I can no longer have to eat.

I do not use them. I prefer to breath in fresh air,

I bought some about 40 years ago, but they now just sit in the 'medicine' cupboard in the bathroom. We don't have a bath, so I'd like to use them up, somehow, & I've never been into burning smelly oils. How about pouring them over a cake of non smelling soap, or does all soap already have a perfume these days?
