    Best Press substitute question

    Here is a thread that has me thinking ....

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/main-f1...s-t169267.html

    what if I can't find the Lavender oil - or the ones I do find are ssssssooooo expensive

    so my questions are :
    1) do I have to use the Lavender Essential oil
    2) can anything else be used instead ?

    Thanks for your help

    I found my lavender oil at the grocery, in the organic section. I think it was 6.99 or so. I have had the same bottle for years, so I think the cost was reasonable.

    I don't know why you couldn't use any extract, like from the baking section? It's mostly alcohol. Orange or lemon would smell fresh! Or leave it out all together. I'm sure some people don't like the scents.

    Lavender oil is just for the smell, it should work perfectly without it.

    I use my Sta-flo without any 'smelly' stuff in it. Working in an allergist office it is frowned upon with scents....
