I've been obsessing over scent. You may not know this, but even full time artists need hobbies, and for the last year, mine has been playing with essential oils. In the evening times, after the studio has been shut down, after the brushes washed and the torch extinguished, I often play with scent. Mixing pure organic oils, dabbing them on wrists and spritzing them through the house. There is something so clean and rich about using true essences that I always feel a little wild and fresh when they mingle in the air around me.
Now you may already know this, but the trees are my church. The lonely mountains, the untamed fields, the ocean shores, they are my sanctuary. They are the places I feel the truest, the places I allow my feet to sink deeply into the earth while lifting my heart to the heavens. They are the places I remember that I am whole. And so for months now, I've been working on bottling the very essence of being in the wilds. I mist the studio with this scent to transport the deep, pre-verbal recesses of my mind to the way I feel on the mountaintops. I spritz it throughout the house to bring nature into this urban home. I breathe and pause and feel myself becoming a little wilder. And in case you need a dose of the same, I'm offering a limited number of bottles to you.
These are pure essential oils, no synthetic anything, mixed with witch hazel and distilled water. The blend is woodsy and bright, like the forest after a storm. Notes of cedar and juniper, followed by the citrus tang of bergamot and the earthy sweetness of lavender mingle together in one long cool breath, wrapped up with my hand-carved Grace stamp. It's my delight to offer them to you!
You can find a limited number of bottles in the etsy shop right now! Breathe deep you beautiful souls!
