    This absolutely worked the other day. You told me it could remove goo and it sure does! Now I don’t have to worry when TJ Maxx and Tuesday Morning put sticky stickers in the most tacky spots on my purchases!

    • Kathleen on 02/10/2015 at 12:10 pm

      Yay, Suzy! Plus now your purchases will smell fantastic. 🙂

    I am glad my daughter told me about the oil

  3. Emily Hall on 10/18/2016 at 9:18 pm

    I am relatively new to essential oils/doTerra. I am still a little nervous about ingesting essential oils. What are your thoughts on that?

    • Kathleen on 10/20/2016 at 11:59 am

      It’s good to be cautious and do your homework, Emily. You definitely should not ingest any old essential oil–only top quality therapeutic grade oils. (That’s why I use doTERRA.)

  4. Barbara Gross on 12/17/2016 at 3:00 pm

    My recipe calls for one teaspoon orange extract. Can I use Wild Orange oil and how much?

    • Kathleen on 12/19/2016 at 8:17 pm

      Barbara–I’ve used WO oil instead of the extract before. Start with 1-2 drops essential oil. (And be sure to use a brand that is safe to ingest, such as doTERRA.)

    How do I blend for cranky and moody 8yrs old. Do I need to dilute? By the way I am using Doterra Wild orange oil.

    • Kathleen on 01/20/2017 at 8:35 pm

      Wild Orange is technically safe to use without dilution, but you’d want to use only 1-2 drops at a time. Diluting the oil in a roller bottle would make it easier to apply, and would help to make sure you don’t use too much.

        Thank you Kathleen. I have tried during the weekend monitoring my son on it.

    Does Wild Orange Essential Oils help with dog odor in the house?

    • Kathleen on 04/19/2017 at 7:51 pm

      Hi, Rhonda, Personally, I’d rather smell Wild Orange than dog! 😉 Yes, definitely try Wild Orange for deodorizing your home. Lemon is good, too, as well as doTERRA’s Purify blend.
