THE ALCHEMY OF ESSENTIAL OIL PERFUMES

The method for extracting the vital essences from plant materials is an ancient one and has its roots in the alchemical sciences. The process of distillation, is a profoundly alchemical process, involving all the elementals. Each element is necessary to coax out the plant's life energies in this process of transformation. We begin with a copper still [metal elemental], into which we add plant materials [wood elemental], and spring water [water elemental]. The still is then heated [fire elemental], to cause steam [air elemental], where the plant material is broken down to release it's essence. The water that is released from the still is the most yin (feminine) aspect of the transformation, and the essential oil that is suspended on top of the water is the most yang (masculine) aspect of the process. Each of these transformed products offer very specific uses. Today we will focus on the essential oil aspects of distillation.

Essential oils are profound plant medicines that interact in very complex ways with our human cells. Essential oils are complex harmonies that nature produces made up of many specific chemical molecules. Their highly potent constitution makes them powerfully attuned and they can behave as chemical messengers, capable of unlocking the receptor sites of cells and communicating with our cellular intelligence at the level of the DNA. 

When you apply essential oil perfumes, you are literally changing your body's chemistry. It is well known that essential oils have remarkable effects on the body organs, the skin, the mood via the limbic system (a complex system of nerves and networks in the brain, involving several areas near the edge of the cortex concerned with instinct and mood), and all other systems of the body. Essential oils are some of the most concentrated natural plant medicines available. Why would anyone want to wear a chemically derived fragrance that can do none of these, and most likely contains toxic petrochemicals? The tell tale sign of a synthetically derived perfume is that it will last on the skin, hair, your clothes for a very long time and the fragrance will change very little. The volatility of pure essential oils leads to perfumes that change on the skin with time, and will dissipate naturally. Perfumes made from pure essences interact in amazing ways and it may be said that the influences of the weather, the heavenly bodies, and the mood and intent of the perfumer all impact these volatile molecules. 

 

While I offer 8 pure oil blends, I also create custom perfume blends. Historically perfumers tended to translate the art of perfume blending to a musical comparative. Perhaps, because of the ephemeral similarity between an essential oil fragrance and a struck musical note, both wafting through the ethers. When it comes to blending musical notes, essential oils, and color harmonies, our human senses are incredibly sensitive and are profoundly effected by the outcomes. Think about each essence as a single note in a song. While each note is simple, it is chemically complex, just as a single note has a very complex vibratory harmony. When single notes are combined and left to harmonize, this creates a cord, or an accord in perfume language. Single notes and accords are blended together to make up a signature scent or perfume.

 

Composition of a harmonious song [finished perfume], is the thoughtful blending of top, middle, and base notes. These complex arrangements in the right combinations make for a lovely fragrance. Top notes are lighter in fragrance and usually dissipate quickly. They are highly volatile, and fast acting. Citrus oils are good examples of top notes. Middle notes give body and balance to a perfume. Mid notes offer a warm and soft aroma to a perfume composition. Green plant materials are typical of middle notes. Base notes are heavier and long lasting, and are intense in character. Base notes encourage other lighter notes to linger. Woods, roots, and resins are characteristically base note in nature. Some essential oils act as fixatives, meaning they stabilize the molecules of a perfume and increase the longevity of the fragrance, especially the lighter molecules of the top notes. Essential oils high in sesquiterpene molecules like sandalwood and myrrh have been used for thousands of years for their fixative properties.

 

 
A perfume can have a focus of top, middle, or base notes, but often to balance a well rounded perfume, the top, mid, and base notes will also be added. When I am customizing a composition for a client I usually begin with the top notes. We smell directly from the bottles the highly volatile notes of blood, sweet, and bitter orange varieties. We take in the subtle differences of pink and white grapefruit, then savor lime, and bergamot for example. Next the middle or heart notes are gathered, enjoyed and selected. Heart notes like clary sage, lavender, ylang ylang, jasmine, and rose geranium are a small sampling of middle notes. And finally base notes like patchouli, benzoin, vanilla, tonka bean, vetiver, frankincense, and rose wood fill out the base aspects of the perfume.
 
Because essential oils are expensive to produce, you will not find natural perfumes on the mass market. It takes approximately 10,000 roses to produce 20 drops of rose essential oil. 

 

This should not however dissuade you from procuring a treasure of this nature. Using a natural fragrance, especially one concocted specifically to your unique sensibilities, will literally transform your body, mind, and spirit... Isn't this the definition of ALCHEMY?

Behave | A Brief Homage to Bay Laurel Essential Oil

Featured as a key ingredient in our Behave hair pomade, the essential oil of Bay Laurel is both antiseptic and antibiotic. Bay Laurel can protect wounds from infection, and inhibit the growth of bacteria. The astringent properties are able to prevent hair loss by strengthening the bond between the hair’s root and our scalp. While promoting a discharge of toxins from the body and strengthening your immune system, the spicy and herbaceous scent of bay laurel will promote general wellness. The aroma of Bay Laurel will work to address anxiety, stress, and depression, by calming nervous tendencies.

BEHAVE has many uses as do most of our other products. Because we only use food grade organic ingredients, the aim is to nourish the skin. The organic beeswax provides a hydrating and softening barrier to the skin and hair. We use BEHAVE as a skin conditioner, especially in the dry winter months. It is great on chapped hands and we use it liberally on our elbows and feet.

My Daily Skin Care Regimen


The skin is our largest organ and is certainly reflective of the body’s overall vitality. The body will reflect its internal health in the external organ (skin). Good nutrition and hydration are essential to maintaining radiant and healthy skin tissue. If you have younger skin, taking care of your skin now and slowing the aging process will serve you later. As we age the body’s ability to renew skin cells becomes less efficient. The amount of natural moisture is also reduced. As the skin ages, collagen production also diminishes, contributing to thinner skin with less flexibility.

The outer layer of our skin (epidermis) replaces itself every 35 days, and is replaced from the basal keratinocyte layer. Collagen makes up 75 percent of our skin. Healthy skin is often associated with healthy collagen levels. Collagen is a major structural protein in the skin. It plays a key role in providing the structural scaffolding for keratinocytes. Collagen is created by fibroblasts, which are specialized skin cells located in the dermis. Fibroblasts also produce other skin structural proteins such as elastin (a protein which gives the skin its ability to snap back) and glycosaminoglycans (GAGs). GAGs make up the ground substance that keeps the dermis hydrated. Some herbs are reported to stimulate glycogen production, such as Gotu Kola and Ginkgo Biloba. Vitamin C is also important for collagen synthesis. Gotu Kola enhances integrity and vascularization of connective tissue and skin, and stimulates wound healing. It also is known to improve elasticity of blood vessels. I take 30 drops of Gotu Kola tincture every day, morning and night. Ginkgo Biloba is known to enhance connective tissue integrity. I use 30 drops day and night. Studies have shown that taking Vitamin C (citric acid) with Vitamin E may reduce the sunburn reaction. This may indicate a reduced risk for UV-induced skin damage. I use Collagen C from Standard Process, 1 tablet in the morning and 1 at night, with 1000 IU d-alpha Vitamin E daily. I also take 500mg of vitamin D-3. D-3 is actually a hormone that is synthesized in the skin. The best place to obtain this essential nutrient is from the sun. Sun exposure is actually very essential for the health of our skin (more on my philosophy of sun exposure in a following article). If you live in a northern climate, and/or, you avoid the sun, make sure you are supplementing with this essential nutrient. One last and very important nutrient for aging skin is Coenzyme Q10. This vitamin like substance is found in all parts of the body. It is responsible for energy production in every cell in the body. CoQ10 increases oxygenation to the cells and has vital anti-aging effects. As with many things, its availability in skin cells decreases with age. Our exposure to free radicals causes the body to consume it more freely. As skin cells die, the body must produce enough energy to replace them just as quickly. When we expose our skin to environmental factors, we increase the need for the body to keep up with the demand for creating new cells. CoQ10 is a crucial component in the recovery process, as it is a power house nutrient for cellular production. Studies have shown the ability of CoQ10 to support the production of collagen, and to protect skin cell deterioration from UVA exposure. I take 60mg with my Collagen C and vitamin E combination.

This takes care of the internal care of your skin, now for the topical treatments.

Let’s start with morning cleansing. If you are in the habit of just rinsing your face with water in the morning, you are leaving up to 35% of dead skin cells and sebum buildup on your skin. Our skin is exposed to free radicals (charged chemical particles that are destructive to organic substances like the protein in our skin) that should be removed from the skin daily. Not all face cleansers are the same. Some are harsh cleansers and will cause the skin to over produce oils to compensate. I developed LUSTER as a very gentle and mostly nourishing facial cleanser, and it can be used daily for even the most sensitive skin types. LUSTER gently washes away impurities and deeply nourishes in the process. Aloe Vera, and vitamin E, contribute anti-inflammatory and healing qualities, coconut oil helps to retain moisture and soothes irritated skin. COQ10 is a powerful natural antioxidant which is important as an anti-aging treatment. This nutrient increases cell energy, boosts skin cell repair, and regeneration. Hyaluronic acid is an incredible moisture boost to the skin. Oats are well known for reducing skin irritation and aids in healing damaged skin tissue. Oat also helps to stimulate collagen synthesis and is a natural skin moisturizer. Panthenol is added to help reduce redness and irritation. Decyl Glucoside (a natural cleanser derived from coconut and corn fatty acids), cleanses without causing dryness. Lactic Acid gently exfoliates the skin, aids in cell renewal, and improves collagen and elastin synthesis. Frankincense essential oil is used to prevent collagen degeneration and to soothe damaged skin tissue, by increasing leukocytes in defense against infection. Lavender essential oil is added for its ability to promote tissue regeneration and to speed wound healing. Rose Geranium essential oil is added to help balance sebum, it helps to cleanse oily skin, and improves blood flow. Carrot Seed essential oil aids dry skin conditions and is known to diminish fine lines in the skin.

To use LUSTER: Moisten skin with warm water; put ¼ pump into the palms and work into a lather. Gently and in circular motions massage the face and neck area. Rinse well with cool water.

 For a daily spa like facial, mix ½ teaspoon RADIANCE with ½ pump of LUSTER in the palm to form a paste. In circular motion gently rub the paste into the face, neck, and chest, for 2 minutes. Let the mask rest on the face for another 2-5 minutes. Rinse with warm water. RADIANCE will leave your skin bright and soft. The herbs and the clay combination detoxifies the skin, tightens the pours, and very gently exfoliates dead skin cells. RADIANCE can be used daily, morning or evening, as you wish.

Now your skin is ready for hydration and protection.

LUSH is a powerful healing cream in a little jar. LUSH will balance combination skin, help heal blemishes, and has great anti-inflammatory ingredients. LUSH is soothing and healing without feeling sticky or greasy. It absorbs into the skin very quickly. LUSH was formulated to balance, tone, and protect young skin, while supplying topically what is needed to support collagen production (vitamin C, COQ10), and moisture (vitamin E, hyaluronic acid, aloe vera, coconut oil, glycerine, rosehip seed oil, and oat) in aging skin.  A very tiny amount of LUSH combined with a few pumps of HYDRATE is all you need for your face, neck, and decollete. LUSH on its own is a rich, nourishing cream. Use it by itself if you have dry or aging skin. If you have younger skin a few sprays of HYDRATE will thin it to your needed level of moisture. I have oily skin so I use enough to cover just the tip of my pinky finger, blended with a few sprays of HYDRATE.

For my evening moisturizing:

NECTAR is an oil serum that deeply nourishes skin tissue.  Argan oil is rich in antioxidants, giving it the ability to regress the signs of aging. The unsaturated fatty acids and squalene in Argan oil mark it as a very effective free radical fighter. Free radicals result in oxidation (seen as age spots) like the rust that builds up on metal left out in the elements. Sea Buckthorn oil contains carotenoids that are precursors to vitamin A, which is an essential nutrient for the eyes and skin. It contains compounds that have beneficial effects on inflammation and other mechanisms associated with dryness. Clinical trials have shown the effects of this special oil on addressing dry skin. Measurements of skin hydration, elasticity, roughness, and cutaneous thickness were taken before application. After 1 month use, the results showed dramatic improvements. Sea Buckthorn oil has an orange hue from the high concentration of carotenoids, please take care to protect from fabric. Rosehip seed oil contains natural Tretinoin a derivate of Rentinol (vitamin A), which replenishes and rebuilds skin tissue. Vitamin E is a fat soluble nutrient that is essential for healthy skin. I use a mixed tocopherol (most abundant form of vitamin E). Vitamin E is the most abundant lipophilic (fat loving) antioxidant found in the human skin. Vitamin E absorbs the energy from ultraviolet (UV) light and is important for protecting the skin from sun damage. Essential oils of Carrot seed, Rose, and Lavender add a deeply healing element not to mention a heavenly aroma to this special serum.

Apply NECTAR to the face nightly for a deeper and more nourishing treatment.

BRIGHT tooth polish

 

INGREDIENTS: Organic raw coconut oil, clay, organic untreated sea salt, peroxide, natural baking soda, essential oils of cinnamon, peppermint, tea tree, myrrh, and clove.

Teeth are very porous and the tiny microscopic holes in them make them susceptible to bacteria. Contrary to popular belief, sugar does not cause cavities per se, rather, sugar, and foods high in phytic acids, demineralize the body, making teeth more susceptible to bacteria causing cavitation. We have formulated BRIGHT tooth polish with the finest ingredients to support a healthy mouth.

Teeth are living and can therefore heal and repair. Baking soda promotes tooth re-mineralization, acts as a gentle polishing agent, neutralizes odors, and helps create an alkaline environment. The debate over the benefits of fluoride, used in conventional tooth paste, is on-going. Current science overwhelmingly shows fluoridation has little to no benefit in preventing dental caries. We are exposed to many sources of fluoride and it is cumulative. Studies have shown the connection of fluoride toxicity to impaired thyroid function, immune system function, diminished IQ, and many more adverse symptoms.

Clay is a mineral product that is nourishing and highly detoxifying. It is used as a gentle tooth polish. Natural clay is high in silica, magnesium, iron, calcium and potassium.

We use organic, raw, and unrefined coconut oil in our BRIGHT tooth polish. Coconut oil is anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, and anti-viral. Coconut oil improves circulation, and prevents periodontal disease and tooth decay. Coconut oil also improves calcium and magnesium absorption and supports the development of stronger bones and teeth.

EAA uses untreated, unheated, solar dried Mediterranean and Hawaiian sea salts. These sea salts are high in minerals and trace elements. Natural sea salt has anti-bacterial properties, is naturally antiseptic, and has been known to reduce pain.

The essential oils used in BRIGHT were selected for their anti-microbial and healing properties. Cinnamon is highly anti-microbial. Research has shown cinnamon oil to be highly effective in addressing streptococcus mutans and lactobacillus platarum. These bacteria are responsible for tooth decay and gum disease. Clove oil is also highly antimicrobial and is the most concentrated antioxidant known. Myrrh essential oil is both anti-septic and soothing to gum tissue. Tea Tree oil is also anti-microbial, immunostimulant, and analgesic. Peppermint oil is anti-bacterial, and analgesic. Peppermint oil can enhance or restore the sense of taste because it stimulates the trigeminal nerve.

USE: Because we use pure and natural ingredients in our BRIGHT tooth polish you may notice a change in its consistency due to temperature fluctuations. Use desired amount on either a wet or dry tooth brush. Brush gently for 2 minutes, morning and before bed, daily, to keep teeth clean and bright.

THE ALCHEMY OF ESSENTIAL OIL PERFUMES... and their healing properties

THE ALCHEMY OF ESSENTIAL OIL PERFUMES   

Essential oils are, by their very nature, alchemical. The extraction of the vital essence of plant materials for the purpose of their elixiorative substances, extends deep into ancient history.

These alchemical solutions contain very complex molecules that contain in their very essence, healing properties. It is well known that essential oils have remarkable effects on the body organs, the skin, the mood via the limbic system (a complex system of nerves and networks in the brain, involving several areas near the edge of the cortex concerned with instinct and mood), and all other systems of the body. Essential oils are some of the most concentrated natural plant medicines used; as antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, detoxifying, hormone balancing, agents. 

Essential oils are very profound substances. They are complex harmonies of hundreds or even thousands of different chemicals. Their highly potent constitution makes them powerfully attuned and they can behave as chemical messengers, capable of unlocking the receptor sites of cells, and, communicating with our cellular intelligence at the level of the DNA. To quote David Stewart PhD, “… even though inanimate, creation does not speak in words, its voice resounds everywhere, to be heard and understood by the spiritually attuned. “

The names of EAA perfumes I borrowed from my Grandfathers native Greek language. Each of the 8 perfume names speaks of qualities both spiritual and physical. I hope you enjoy these transformative perfumes meant to be unisex and to be blended for even more complex aromas.
