I get my inspiration for making products by reading folklore on alchemist wisdom that has been passed down for generations in different cultures.
Each ingredient calls to me for one reason or another, and I jot it down in my journal for further investigation.
Once I am in my studio, my intuition guides me, and the end result is a fusion of living ingredients that together are greater than the sum of their parts. It’s a skincare symphony, and the end result is my magnum opus.
I never make more than I can personally use, and after the last drop is dispensed, it lingers in my mind like a great bottle of wine which defines a celebratory moment in my life.
This year was different. For better or worse, I spent many more hours in my garden, pouring my heart into planting a perfume garden. Gardenias, jasmine, roses, and lilies. It’s almost as if they knew I needed a distraction this year because they grew in abundance.
Picked at their peak, flowers are like herbs, their volatile oils and sugars are highest before photosynthesis and heat convert them to starch.
So on a crisp spring evening on the full moon in May, I thanked each flower for their service and added them to an already potent Ayurvedic blend I was working on. The vibration from the herbs, combined with the fresh flowers has created an accidental masterpiece. My only regret is that I didn’t make more.
It’s too special not to share, so I am offering this alchemy elixir from my personal collection as a one time only purchase with two caveats: 1. Limit 2 bottles per person (to allow as many people access to it as possible) 2. You must use it within three months of purchase.
