Today I enjoyed my time in the soap shop. I always do savor my time there, but today I was inspired a bit more than normal.
I have been studying natural perfume and soon will be ramping up the testing.
Today I organized the essential oils that I have on hand. I organized by type (base, middle, and top note).
I will be receiving several shipments of new oils this week and am excited to test new recipes.
Of course, I want more oils. I will likely never be satisfied. As soon as I think I have the oils on hand that I will want/need I discover a new one that intrigues me. However, time, patience, and small (layered) steps are best.
Aroma has been a part of me since I was a small child. Perhaps it began during the years we lived in France when I was a young child. I do not know.
Soap was a passion that started at 7 years old.
I am excited to bring the perfume forward for several reasons. First, I find so many perfumes on the market to be obtrusive to the senses. They are overwhelming.
I believe perfume should be a personal thing. You and just perhaps a person close to you should be able to smell the aroma. I do not think perfume should permeate a room.
Perfume should not cause horrible allergic reactions for those that are near you.
That is why I am focusing only on natural perfumes.
More to come on this topic soon. I am enthused, and hoping to share more with everyone soon.
