10. “Essential what? Well it sounds like the fad of the week to me. Can’t be that essential if we’ve been doing just fine without them up to this point. (Hey honey, where are the pain relievers?)  Alllllrighhhtt go ahead and get some.” -whatever it takes to keep the wife happy.

6. “Honey, I’ve got a headache. It’s cute that you want me to smell your Peppermint but that’s not gonna… Huh, I think that actually helped.”

5. Hmmm I’m out of deodorant but this Cedarwood smells pretty manly. I’ll just rub a couple drops of that under my arms… Huh that’s kind of tingly… ?!?!?!…..”HONEY MY PITS ARE ON FIRE!!! AND WATER ISN’T HELPING!”

4. What in the the world is Heliochrysalis (Helichrysum) and how can it cost three times more for a bottle that’s three times smaller?

2. “Honey, why do you smell like Christmas?”

1. She always takes the Lavender and Peppermint with her. We should get some spares so that they’re always available at home and where is the Frankincense? I hate it when I can’t find my Frankincense.
