DIY Infused Oil Recipe in Organic Life Magazine!

So unbelievably stoked for this article that just came out in Organic Life Magazine! The profile also includes a recipe on how to make your own floral-infused botanical hair & body oil so be sure to check it out on my blog!

One correction worth mentioning: I was finally able to overcome my dependence on western meds for recurrent (and severe) poison ivy that plagued my northeastern youth with the miracle that is Jewelweed {Impatiens capensis}, also known as poison ivy’s antidote. This herb was one of the first to instill my faith in plant medicine when I drank & doused myself in it before harvesting Hawthorne berries from an ivy patch as part of my first herbal apprenticeship. After having poison ivy twice already that summer [both times in my eyes], I was certain I’d be doomed – but alas! Despite my skepticism, the Jewelweed protected me perfectly. Endless thanks to all of my herbal teachers & schools who are mentioned here ~ this lineage is built on the minds & skills of knowledge keepers that pave the way for each new generation of healers

MORNING PERFUMERY

Morning perfumery, mixing up a blend for a client. Creating custom perfumes is one of my greatest passions in this line of work… Blending is truly an aromatic art, and I believe every perfume should be as unique as the person that it adorns. Processed through an entirely different area of the brain than the rest of our senses, smell has a particular association with our memories – thus giving scents the rare ability to transform us through time & space. I love witnessing reactions to different aromatic materials, and watching olfactory preferences evolve as we grow + change into slightly different versions of ourselves. Thus, the last drops in old vials of perfume can serve as a scented reminder of who and where we were in life when we wore it every day.

If you’re on O’ahu and would like a custom blend, please get in touch for a private in-person perfumery session… Otherwise order here by choosing from any of 30 different essential oils, and I will send a vial encapsulating your one-of-a-kind perfume through the mail!
