Thieves' Oil (again)

A couple of people have asked if I will sell that Thieves' Oil blend on Etsy --

Upon doing a little research, I think I can price it competitively and not lose money.  These are ESSENTIAL oils, not fragrance oils, therefore somewhat more costly.  To put the pricing in perspective, I've seen it online for anywhere from $27  to $42 for a half-ounce.

There are approximately 600 drops in one ounce of EO, so figure 200 for 10 ml and 300 for 15 ml.  This will help you figure if it's worth the price per application.

Poll #1352607 Thieves' Oil Market Research

I would buy an undiluted bottle at a price of

$12 + $3 shipping (10 ml, 1/3 oz)
6(85.7%)
$17 + $3 shipping (15 ml, 1/2 oz)
1(14.3%)

I would pay (x) for a 15 ml (1/2 oz) bottle diluted for use on skin

$8 + $3 shipping (jojoba)
5(62.5%)
$7 + $3 shipping (grapeseed)
1(12.5%)

I would use this payment option:

PayPay CC/DC
