Not everyone sleeps in

I went out to get some washing off the line (as you do when you haven't prepared the night before), I spotted these two well at it.

For those of you who think I have a pervy streak, they're bright orange for heaven's sakes. How could you possibly miss them?

In the garden, 6am

Perfect Potion is a Brisbane success story. Started by an engineer-turned-aromatherapist and his wife, they started selling their smelly little concoctions at the local markets and when demand grew, a shop was opened - in the heart of the city no less!

Now with further success meaning they're stocked in large department stores, prices have rocketed but there are times when one can snatch a bargain from the shelves and inwardly fling themselves about with dollar saving glee.

Thai Fusion is a tart mix of lemongrass, ginger and lime. I often burn it in the kitchen where it lends a lively, joyful smell. Zest is a trigger happy melding of orange, lime and rosemary that revives me after a long day at work. I use it as a room spray by adding a few drops to a spray bottle of water and Castor oil.

So why the glee? They usually sell for $19 but I nabbed them at $6 because the company (yes, they're a company now) has decided to 'go organic' and use 'certified organic' stock so there's nothing wrong with the above, they just don't have that little seed logo that suddenly makes them uber-fashionable.
