Bramble Berry’s Fir Needle Essential Oil is natural and comes straight from Siberian Fir twigs and needles (native to Russia and Mongolia). The steam distillation method is applied to create a colorless to pale yellow oil. It has a smooth, fresh, evergreen aroma that is refreshing and harmonizing. This essential oil has top notes of pine, a sweet and fruity middle note with a woodsy finish.This winter fragrance is believed to be emotionally vitalizing (I keep a little bottle at my desk for an occasional pick me up). According to the ‘Natural Healing Guide’, it also naturally acts as an anti-inflammatory so it’s perfect for aches and sore muscles.

I can totally smell this from your description! And I think it'd be a great addition to the cleaning products that I make to use at home.
My smart-aleck son, however, wishes to point out that the scientific/Latin name should be either underlined or italicized, and that only the genus should be capitalized, not the species. (It's at once annoying and exhilarating to live with a kid like that.) =}
Kat, Grapefruit EO has a low flashpoint so it tends to not smell too great in candles. Any essential oil with a low flashpoint should be tested to make sure it smells okay and should never be used in gel candles. Gel Candles, remember, have a base that has a lower flashpoint than a traditional soy, beeswax or paraffin wax so the low flashpoint with a gel candle coupled with a low flashpoint essential oil can make for flare ups. So, keep that in mind when making gel candles.
Maureen, Yes, you could add the Bramble Berry fragrances into vinegar. Try a small bit first (like 1 ml in 1 Tbsp) to make sure the fragrance mixes in well. If it doesn't, you may have to use Polysorbate 20 or 80 to solublize the fragrance so that it mixes in cleanly and clearly with the Vinegar.
Thanks for stopping in.
Please forgive the off topic question. I didn't know where else to put it.
I have several BB fragrances and I was wondering if I could add some to the vinegar I have started using at cleaner. I would love it if I could make it smell better than basic vinegar.
in the last two days i have been looking for essential oils for christmas! yay!
we need look no further!
i only have 1 question; heard recently pink grapefruit eo cannot be put in candles? is this true?
what about other eo's with low flash points?
