July is the month of the Full Buck Moon. Bucks begin to grow new antlers at this time. This Full Moon was also known as the Thunder Moon because thunderstorms are so frequent during this month.
This month we are heading for the full moon on JULY 19th.
It is a very exciting time. Below I will expound on some of what I am currently working on. I would like to say that my OCEAN SUMMER WELLNESS BROTH is amazing, and can carry us into healthy zones. Use it as a base for bouillabaise, veggie soups, teas, and much more recipe ideas, even as a broth to serve over grilled fish in summer, w zucchini.
More popular summer teas are all stocked at all SLOWCOAST locations.
The Summer Scents that I love now: WHITE ROSE SOLIFLORE that is a soft comfort in the boudoir before bedtime for a smooth restful meditative rejuvenation, Orange Honey Blossom which I love for that glow on my mattress when I change the sheets, and exudes in mornings in the boudoir, Lavendar Soliflore is a must in my purse, for a refreshing uplift any time of day. There are so many more.
I created a beautiful essential oil blend for summer that is blood orange, cedar, carrot seed, and many other essences. I use it in baths, and in my Anti Stress Serum when dressing before my day and after my evening shower or bath before I cook dinner, to meditate, and feel smooth energies.
In the perfume studio I am working on a few new scents. The #SLOWCOAST SCENT garden for #LPO is doing very well this summer, becoming much more established. It can now be utilized as a good resource for perfume making. We like to harvest in mornings when the dew has dried.
I have some new green coloured parfums in the making.
One is almost done and will go for review to a private client. She is in Germany.
I can give you the exclusive on it.....shhhhhh:
She had a friend send her a blog entry describing what David Bowie smelled like and she wanted to share it with me. We decided to create a scent for her music blog based on that description.
She writes a cool hip music blog in German/English.
I met her here at Slowcoast, a few years ago where she bought my BIG SUR PARFUM and came back again for more, LPO. I gave she and her friend a private scent journey in my perfume studio.
That was super fun.
The new perfume is green and has been in the making for months and months now. It is almost ready to fly to her for approval. :)
It has a soft entry of violet, forest floor, with spruce and fir, then opens into a smoky hay, roasted seashell, cade....and a dry down of attar of floral sandalwoods.
This would be a fun feature as AUTUMN begins, and people could choose the scent as a rock star style that embraces nature, and fireplace coziness.
I am working on a LAST CHANCE Parfum also, which encompasses my home land now. This is a place that backs up into a giant nature preserve here called Big Basin. Main scent is a meadow lavendar, and apples: 27 heirloom varieties, citrus, plums, and apricots, roses, and tree barks, pine, hay, much more, growing up at 905 feet above sea level overlooking the ocean.
So that is something else, in the composition phase now. It should launch for SPRING 2017 is my best guess.
Then I have a MILLEFLEURS 2016 that will be a capsule of summer scent garden, that I am currently working on which is where the SLOWCOAST LPO garden is. This is being composed of an entire seasonal cycle of what we have growing this summer.
Perfume Camp 2017 will be announced soon. That will be a good intro or expansion for students, and perfumers.
For those interested in studying, creating, composing, foraging, learning, expanding, please feel free to reach out and book private study time with me. I am very excited to get things going for you, so we can make some headway on your expressive and creative genius.
