Darkness I Will Release
The blue tansy flower is part of the chamomile family and contains chamazulene, a natural chemical compound that turns a deep shade of indigo when heated. This powerful and anti-aging ingredient is known to bring peace to stressed and troubled skin and can help to reduce redness and inflammation, clear up some forms of rash and allergic reactions, and naturally treat psoriasis, rosacea, and acne. Blue tansy has a pretty and slightly sweet scent reminiscent of berries in the field and aromatherapists use the luscious, ripe scent to reduce the overwhelming feeling of being out of control and to ease general anxiety and depression.
Our organic frangipani enfleurage oil is extracted in South America by a small, artisan grower and one of the few remaining operations in the world still producing scents through this labor intensive and ancient process. The revival of the enfleurage technique has permitted extraction of oils from species of flowers whose blossoms cannot withstand steam distillation. Carried out entirely by hand, fresh, fully opened frangipani flowers are placed on glass chassis in fat and the blossoms are changed for fresh ones every day for approximately one month. At the end of the process, the fat is infused with the pure, rich scent from the exhaling flowers and the flower oil can then be separated from the fat using all-natural cane sugar alcohol. What’s left is pure, clean Frangipani flower essence created without heat or harsh chemical solvents. The scent is exquisite and the benefits to skin and soul numerous – a softly aphrodisiac oil, frangipani is relaxing and soothing to the mind and its astringent qualities help to balance the skins production of oil. Known as a powerful moisturizer, Frangipani is anti-aging, antioxidant, and collagen-boosting, and helps to eliminate toxins from the skin.
Our incredible organic honeysuckle enfleurage oil is also produced by just one artisan maker in the world and is crafted by enfleurage because these delicate blossoms are too fragile and contain too little oil to be extracted by distillation or pressing. The oil yield for each batch of enfleurage and its many pounds of honeysuckle blossom are small and precious and the benefits of this intoxicating and nostalgic scent are plentiful. Honeysuckle is an ancient remedy for excess heat in the body and was used to stimulate the flow of energy and clear toxins and poisons. Aromatherapists believe that honeysuckles can free the soul from the past and help one to move forward in life free of the burdens and baggage of regret.
Use Darkness I Will Release as a light perfume, as a facial spot treatment on areas of irritation, or a few drops allover the face as an anti-aging and healing facial oil. Please note that natural perfume oils that do not contain any synthetics or chemicals are lighter and the fragrance will not last as long. This scent is more subtle and is better suited to those looking to intoxicate a lover.
