The Oils We Love to Hate: Patchouli, Geranium, Ylang Ylang and Fennel

At The Apothecary, we can’t pick favourites — at least not officially. We know that every essential oil has its place and its known benefits, and we value each of them for what they are. However, off the record (until now), there are a few oils that are fairly contentious among our staff. We know that these same oils are divisive among our customers as well. We’re talking specifically about patchouli, geranium, ylang ylang and fennel, and we know that with each of these, you either love it or hate it.

Build Your Zero Waste Kit: Six Essentials

What is a Zero Waste Kit? It’s simply a small collection of essential, reusable, everyday items that — without taking up much space — make a huge difference in your daily contribution to the waste stream.

By carrying these items with you in your backpack, car or while travelling, you can save plastic grocery bags, paper coffee cups, paper napkins, plastic utensils and plastic straws from going in the trash while you’re out and about! Add a couple of glass or metal containers if you have the space and use them in place of takeout containers to make even more of an impact.
