Question Of The Day

Image
What's the nicest thing a stranger has done for or said to you? I posted this question on my Plurk.com account.  I have some wonderful wonderful friends there that I chat with all the time and I posted this question on there and got some very interesting answers back. Just when you think there aren't any nice people anymore, then you hear all these lovely things that people have done or said to you was just touching. So touching that I decided to post it here to see what you guys would post.

I would really love to hear others answers to this question. This could be recent or in the past. Please feel free to leave a comment if you like. Not only for me to see but for others to see too. :-)

Thanks

Essential oils are powerful anti-oxidant concentrates. These come from raw plant material such as flowers, leaves, wood, bark, roots, seeds, and peels. These plant ingredients are put into a distiller and placed over water. As the water is heated, the steam penetrates the plant material and vaporizes the volatile compounds. 

These vapors then travel through a coil and condense back to a liquid which is collected in a receiving vessel.
