Ylang Ylang Hydrosol

Cananga odorata

Ylang Ylang Hydrosol

Overview

This floral hydrosol is a subdued version of the essential oil, sweet and intoxicating, yet not as strong. Considered a calming and emotionally uplifting floral, ylang ylang makes a unique base for aroma blends for bedtime. In skin care it is prized for its balancing toner effects for combination or oily skin and irritations.

Ylang ylang blends well with lavandin, geranium, and lemon balm hydrosols. Essential oils to blend with this hydrosol include bergamot and other citrus oils, basil, other floral such as geranium or rose, ginger, lavender, vetiver, vanilla, and jasmine.

Our Ylang Ylang Hydrosol is produced via water-steam distillation of Cananga odorata flowers.
Suitable for cosmetic use

The 3oz. and 8oz. sizes come in an amber glass bottle with a mister top. 16 oz. and 1 gallon bulk sizes come in plastic bottles without misters.

Douglas Fir Hydrosol

Douglas Fir Hydrosol

Overview

With a soft forest-like aroma that has green and slightly balsamic undertones, Douglas fir hydrosol will transport you to the forest, encouraging deep breathing and meditation. This purifying hydrosol is ideal for cleaning products and creates gender neutral fragrance blends and body care products.

Forests notes, like Douglas fir, compliment most other hydrosols in different ways depending on personal preference. For a more feminine aroma blend with rose or geranium, to bring out the masculine notes of the fir blend with helichrysum, lemon verbena, or peppermint.

Our Douglas Fir Hydrosol is produced via water-steam distillation of Pseudotsuga menziesii leaf tips or needles.

Clary Sage Hydrosol

Salvia sclarea

Overview

Our clary sage hydrosol is gentle and calming with a pleasantly herbaceous and bittersweet floral aroma. It is reminiscent of the essential oil, but has a much softer scent that is more grassy and almost tea like. This astringent hydrosol is often used in women’s formulas and utilized as a fixative for top note essential oils. It is emotionally calming, and some consider the aroma to be very sensual.
Clary sage hydrosol is mostly made up of esters and alcohols. It has similar constituents to lavender, which are often used together in formulas. Clary sage also blends well with citrus oils and other floral notes such as rose and jasmine. Our Clary Sage Hydrosol is produced via water-steam distillation of Salvia sclarea leaf and flower. Suitable for cosmetic use

Packaging

The 3oz. and 8oz. sizes come in an amber glass bottle with a mister top. 16 oz. and 1 gallon bulk sizes come in plastic bottles without misters.

Happy Leap Year Day!

Happy-Leap-Day 2016

Leap Day
comes in quiet like some ordinary day
the rising tide of light
washes up on the shores of morning
now indigo . . . now easter blue
spirit returns from the adventures of night
and leaps into—rock, deer, tree, you, me.
Our fiery star leaps
up onto the ridge
throwing the glow of life
all over everything
giving us one more chance
to leap
from everyday mind into
the wonder of being!
Rub the sleep
out of your eyes
leap into your body,
your life
into this very day
where there are
a thousand ways
to know love
and Spring is a promise
that will be kept.
© Cathy Casper 2008

To the Rose upon the Rood of Time

To the Rose upon the Rood of Time

Red Rose, proud Rose, sad Rose of all my days!
Come near me, while I sing the ancient ways:
Cuchulain battling with the bitter tide;
The Druid, grey, wood-nurtured, quiet-eyed,
Who cast round Fergus dreams, and ruin untold;
And thine own sadness, whereof stars, grown old
In dancing silver-sandalled on the sea,
Sing in their high and lonely melody.
Come near, that no more blinded by man’s fate,
I find under the boughs of love and hate,
In all poor foolish things that live a day,
Eternal beauty wandering on her way.

Come near, come near, come near-Ah, leave me still
A little space for the rose-breath to fill!
Lest I no more hear common things that crave;
The weak worm hiding down in its small cave,
The field-mouse running by me in the grass,
And heavy mortal hopes that toil and pass;
But seek alone to hear the strange things said
By God to the bright hearts of those long dead,
And learn to chaunt a tongue men do not know.
Come near; I would, before my time to go,
Sing of old Eire and the ancient ways:
Red Rose, proud Rose, sad Rose of all my days.

— William Butler Yeats, from The Collected Poems of W.B. Yeats

The Valentine

Roses

The Valentine

The rose is red, the violet’s blue,
The honey’s sweet, and so are you.
Thou art my love, and I am thine ;
I drew thee to my Valentine :
The lot was cast, and then I drew,
And fortune said it should be you.

— from Grammar Gurton’s Garland, or The Nursery Parnassus

W is for Warts, Withdrawal, and Wrinkles

Most all of us get warts at some point in our life. To treat a wart, the essential oil must be placed directly to the wart, while trying to avoid the healthy skin surrounding the wart. The essential oil should be neat, (Undiluted, No carrier oil needed, Straight from the bottle). I use a clean q-tip dipped into the essential oil. Essential oils to try for getting rid of warts include: Lemon or Tea Tree. Use one essential oil, four times a day, for one week. If you do not get results, try the other essential oil. One of them should do the trick.
For very stubborn warts try the following recipe:
Mix together the following essential Oils (No carrier oil is needed):
6 drops Lemon
6 drops Tea Tree
3 drops Thyme
Swirl gently until all oils are thoroughly mixed.

Do you, or a person you know, often become withdrawn emotionally from social activities and/or life? Try the following recipes:
