Editorial notes

Bergamot oil[edit]

Can have adverse side effects (and not just people not liking Earl Grey tea).

Some essential oils do have actual uses (especially if used in sufficiently small doses), and many of them 'smell pleasant and put you in a good mood as a result.' (talk) 21:33, 30 May 2017 (UTC)

This would be a sufficiently authoritative reference for the bergamot reference above. Anna Livia (talk)


anyone care to explain the citronella candles at point 8 here? Anna Livia (talk) 16:59, 26 June 2019 (UTC)

Citronella candles are known for repelling mosquitoes. I guess it's to encourage infestation of these pests? Maybe it's to encourage evil cult members to live as literal lord of the flies? This is despite implying that such candles come in the shape of cute animals and such is counterproductive to the the evil cult cause thing. Anyhow, the rest of that list is very strange. Why do you think the citronella candles,of all things, are the ones that most need explanation? --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 17:08, 26 June 2019 (UTC)
Links to 'essential oils.'
If you want to be amused read some of the linked pages/Evil Overlord lists/Things I learned at the Movies sites. If you are into writing (fan)fic you come across such sites. Anna Livia (talk) 20:14, 26 June 2019 (UTC)
