    Oooo what a lovely idea, I'm forever burning incense sticks so don't know why I didn't think of this! I'll be interested to hear a few ideas as well! :D

    I know I'm not supposed to be here, but I do like to lurk!

    In the Birth Skills book I'm reading, they talk about the above-mentioned essential oils on tissues and also lemon and peppermint oils. If I can think of other ones they talk about, I'll post them.
