Scent Suggestions for Homemade Flax Seed Gel needed

I made my own flax seed gel yesterday (blog post will be here by tonight) and I like it a lot, but I wasn't happy with the way the sweet orange essential oil smelled. I think it didn't play well with the agave nectar smell. So I'm looking for suggestions for other essential oil scents, especially some that play well with agave nectar :mrgreen:

    I used lavender, but not everyone likes that smell :) I found that one or two drops was enough. Its also good because it has antiseptic properties.

    I've used Solidgolds in the past and she uses some kind of mint. It smells very good.

    I use a mix of lavendar and rosemary....it seems after it sits a while it gets a little bit of a sweet smell......I like this combo.

    I used lavender in my homemade FSG. I made it before I ordered grapefruit seed extract and vitamin e (which I plan on putting in my next batch). I read a lot of other curlies' FSG didn't last too long in the fridge... I must have made it over a month ago and it's still good (in the fridge of course).

    I use vitamin E oil in mine. I guess I'll have to give lavender a try :)

    How about vanilla EO? I like ylang ylang.

    It's really nice and my hands always smell like lavender afterwards :) (well I put WAY too much in mine, everything is a learning experience I guess lol)

    I need to try it again on wet hair... I was using it on second day hair and I was getting super frizzy by the end of the day.

    My favorites are spearmint (sweeter than peppermint) and grapefruit -- very mild.
