Time for more lip balms and more

Well, it's time to get cracking on more lip balms and finish up one of my latest perfumes. It's not quite done yet and I am still deciding how to bring it all together. This is an oil based perfume so this is a quick pic of one of many strainings which take place during the process.

Right now it is patchouli, vetiver, myrrh, lavender absolute, jasmine sambac, fresh ginger, folded tangerine and orange with lots of vanilla oleoresin and amber resins!
Maybe some bergamot, orris root or rose absolute. Decisions to make.

Where's my dropper....

Give Us Your Poor

I think this is fantastic!

I love Natalie Merchant and what she stands for in the world of human rights.

Why is it when I have other work to be done - all I want to do is create essential oil perfume blends? I am so addicted. My dropper is my best friend these days.

My Golden Champaca, lavender absolute and seabuckthorn co2 have arrived and I can start mixing soon. Hopefully I will find time this weekend to make organic sugar scrubs, lip balms and soaps to restock.

I can't help myself

I just ordered .25 oz. of Golden Champaca CO2. It was 52 dollars for that tiny teeny bottle, but I can't wait until it gets here. I have previously used a sample sized vial in perfume and I fell in love.

I am also going to work on something soon with Seabuck thorn CO2 I hope.

Lately I am enjoying some fabulous soaps from Patti!
