**Here is a sneak peak into the creation of STILL:
"In an experiment to blend traditional botanicals with fresh modern oil extracts, the base of the fragrance was inspired by oils used traditionally in ayurvedic medicine to balance the seven chakras, while the top notes chosen were fresh and lighter. We tested each version of the blend on skin, yoga mats, meditation pillows, and in incense burners most often only to find that it would need one more drop of clary sage, or one less drop of rose oil. Floating in a base of Italian sweet almond oil, apricot seed oil, and castor oil — for final version of ‘Still’ we blended egyptian geranium, a beautiful extract used throughout history both medicinally and in fragrances for its sweet aroma believed to lift the spirit and ease nervous tension. Next we added clary sage from Bulgaria for its uses as a cleansing and calming herb to decrease anxiety and promote stillness of body and mind. To balance these heavier aromas, two drops of mandarin was used to add a softer and warmer version of citrus while notes of frankincense to give a warm balsamic aroma used for hundreds of years to encourage deep breath and focus. One of the oldest oil extracts, smoky vetiver, a luxurious oil that comes from a grass acts as a mild sedative in traditional medicine and gives a rich aroma. To add a layer over the masculine tones of vetiver and frankincense, we added one drop of Indian Rose to give the tone of a very subtle aphrodisiac effects helping to promote openness and generosity."
