I had a delightful day yesterday in our #SLOWCOAST Pescadero store at 251 Stage Rd, next to Norm's Market and Cindy's Country Store.
I was able to share and talk some about how I use the #LPO Libby Patterson Organic Line of Soliflore Parfums that I create.
I really like the uptick of vibration that happens when I spray some of ORANGE HONEY BLOSSOM, LAVENDAR, JASMINE SAMBAC, or ROSE BULGARIAN Soliflore Parfums.
I don't design this part of my line for a long sillage, meaning the length of time it lasts on the skin.I really am partial to being returned to a neutral palette soon after the energy vibrational uptick has occured. It takes the brain about 3 seconds to respond when inhaling organic essences. All the cells communicate with each other immediately when you touch the essence to your skin, and the brain is informed, and can change your life that fast.
I love to use perfume in just this way. Then I want to be returned to a neutral palette. I will explain further. Synthetic scent clings to us, the molecular configuration can not be easily shaken, and there is a rancidity for me, when I smell the synths, and I get a headache.
What causes that? Well, the number of molecules that make up a the organic botanicals is usually varied and many more than science can synthesize, thus causing us to have a reaction when our olfactory bulb gets involved.
Back to how I like to work with the scents. I have a lot of scents around my home, in boudoir, in kitchen, next to door where I can spray when I leave house, on a desk where I work on computer, and so forth. In bath, on shelf in bathtub/shower room.
I really like to just give myself a small dose of a scent to cheer, move the energy, and reset my focus, concentration, or give me a small break from task at hand, before I return to work.
I will spray above my head, so that the molecules will float down into my etheric body, and into my hair, then I will spray or roll on my inner palms, molecularize by rubbing my palms together, and lightly drag my hands across my forehead, around my face, temples, over my cheeks, nose, mouth, very very lightly just off the surface, then through my hair, onto the nape of my neck and around the sides of my neck so that it goes into the carotid, a major pulse point, close to the blood and gets it moving through the entire system quickly, including through inhalation, skin, blood carriers, to brain, and entire system. I use a light effleurage motion on top of my hands to pull the scent lightly onto my arms, both inner and outer, touching inner wrist pulse point, inner elbow, all the way up like opera gloves, i touch lymph area under arms, and continue, under breasts, then behind knees, and finish on arms of what I am wearing: hoodie, or cashmere sweater.
The scent lingers long enough to give me a fresh feeling, and then I like to be returned to a neutral palette because I believe we can maneuver better in our lives from this place.
I don't know any other perfumer who share my position. I do not wear perfume as a way to scent myself, but merely as a way to change my emotion, to heighten it, raise it, vibrationally as plants are most definitely aligning us with nature's intelligence.
Once we are aligned, that bond has been made, and we are there. If I need to reapply, I do. I like it this way. I don't want to smell the same way for 8 hours, or longer. I want to feel my world as it is, all the scent nuances can inform our brains if our environment is safe, dangerous, or if it stinks, and we need to take out the trash, take a shower, etc.
From a neutral palette the brain can work free and clear to make the decisions. When we have clingon synths attached to our skin and clothes, it dulls the ability to make a clear decision about our lives, does that make sense for you?
I have customers, fans of LPO from time to time, ask for longer lasting sillage. Yes! I do love to design scents with vertical, horizontal accords that have longer lasting quality to "wear" as perfumes. They are much more expensive, and are in a category all by themselves. If you are looking for something like this that is all organic please message me so I can guide you to find something from my collections that will fit your needs. My main design focus is the energy vibrational uptick, therefore I am known for designing aphrodisiacs. They mainly work internally on us to feel good, so we then just naturally attract what we want simply because we are vibrating at that level.
Just in this article I am sharing my deeper philosophy of how I design and why. I do have some of my deeper parfums that last longer, because they were designed that way, w base notes that stay stay stay as a dry down. These are from my Couture part of my collections and are more expensive, can be worn as perfumes.
The Soliflore line is strictly what I use for these small petite energy upticks, to also kill bacteria, and so forth on surfaces. The Lavendar Solflore I have used successfully for spider bites, bee stings, mosquito bites, and on my sheets, pillows, pillow cases, and comforters to help kill mites, and keep them clean and mattresses in between changing the sheets.
If you would like a scent that lasts, we can talk about a collection from my couture line, there are always times when you want that scent to wear as a parfum, and to last, for special occasion. Thank you for all of your support, for a woman owned all organic and wildcrafted botanical business.
