Quiet Solitude of the Forest allows me the space to creatively think.
Sipping Beauty Tea and I am working with Anti Stress Serum this morning which is incredibly soothing, calming and uplifting, centering. After a hot morning bath with a special holiday scent of frankincense, blood orange, nutmeg, bergamot, lavendar essential oils, I apply this serum to the bottom of my feet with a lovely light effleurage massage up towards the heart. Over the legs, torso, arms, and neck. I feel this beautiful sense of well being. I recommend this as a daily meditation, and drink the sunlight in as the morning begins. XO A quiet walk in nature is always welcome. This morning I am watching the exotic proteas forming giant buds and ready to bloom here. Think of your potent dreams that are forming, getting ready to bloom.
I am filled with Gratitude from the moment I arise to the moment I arise again, and in my dreams laced with love and ideas.
Testimonials for my Organic Parfums:
I continue to hear at least one person or two a week who come into Slowcoast Airstream store to shop for my perfumes who tell me they haven't been able to wear perfumes in over 20 years until they found my collection.
It always is an interesting conversation about the word ORGANIC which has been obliterated by the large corporations. I read over the weekend that Dr. Bronner's who is an ethical organic soap company and has lead the charge in maintaining organic's reputation has left the OTA (Organic Trade Association) because the definition of organic has been tainted with GMO and so forth.
This is what I always tell my customers: The word organic means not what it used to. For example in Europe the way to be Eco Cert is to have 85% organic ingredients. This is simply unacceptable in my humble opinion. This causes millions of customers to try the organics that are certified by a government process and then announce they can not even wear organics because it is causing an allergic sensitivity issue.
The reason is because the 15% of the product MAY be synthetics or natural isolates which is the molecular identical of the real deal only NOT the real deal.
I am so grateful that some people have been able to enjoy the real head space scents of the flowers they love so much, that this SLOW SCENT path of creating perfumes from Luxe Raw Wild Botanicals is something that I can afford to offer. The slow process of making perfumes this way is akin the process of making wines. It takes a long time. Scent gets better with age, and changes as the nuances of the molecular make up go through a synergistic alignment, which again changes when you put a drop on your skin and it mixes with your organic chemistry.
Not only is LPO Parfum, Beauty & Herb Teas good for your health, it helps form neuroscience scent memories which can help us as we age to trigger memories of places that we remember. If we lasso this consicously as we age, then we can basket the memories in a deeper way, allowing a more graceful aging process including longevity of mind AND body AND spirit.
Everything is made with love in small batches in a clean biodiverse landscape.
Wildcrafted, or domesticated in my gardens and those of friends: the results are much like fine wines: each season's weather, soil, sunshine, rain etc determines the outcomes of each experimental parfum.
Scent Journeys are very healing, and uplifting for people to be introduced to this method of perfume. Not all organic perfumes are alike, in creation. Make sure you know your perfumer, and the methods. So important.
The goal is NOT how long the perfume (sillage) will last on your body.
The GOAL is a few seconds uptick emotionally on the skin, through the bloodstream below the pulse points, and to the brain in 3 seconds on inhalation to create that reset button, a flooding of memories, and then return you back to a neutral palette so you can navigate your world.
