I know it seems a bit pricey for something we could probably make ourselves but somehow the stuff I buy always works better. The bottle is sweet too, reusable for other things, and fits nicely, looks good on a shelf. The strength is just right and it last a surprisingly long time. I don't mind that it's a bit heavier on the citrus side. The sandalwood comes out later. I can spray just enough for a room to smell pleasant, natural, and not bother the cats.
