    Yes, very interesting, but I don't use 4 gallons of ANY of that stuff daily... I do gasoline.

    As for the water, get a Brita and be done with it! ;)

    good point, but still fun.

    they sell essential oils. Rose goes for $208 per 5 ml. That's $41.60 per ml.

    There's 3785.412 ml's per gallon.

    that works out to $157,473.14 per gallon.





    course I failed several math classes.... ;)

    I've never had to use more than a half gallon of Nytol to get through a shift, but I have to drive all day.

    Yeah but what would you charge if you had to squeeze rose bushes hard enough to get oil out of them? (or do they stomp them like grapes for wine?)

    Those thorns hurt!
