Long day. Long.

The children were unusually rude. Which is saying something, generally they achieve rudeness optimum and level off. They're easily distractable, the little darlings. Thank God.

I have been wondering for a long time now..where my zest in things has gone. I think it went away, and it took my spare bottle of aspirin with it. I have looked for three days and I still can't find the blessed thing.

On the other hand, I have been bewildered by a deluge of intricate and multilayered dreams. It's almost as if all the things that made me alive, and creative have been funnelled into keeping me entertained while I snooze.

Bah.

Good news..let me see..

My nose is no longer out of joint. I actually think I've solved the rose absolute problem. And I think that I am coming closer to solving the mystery of the Smaragadine smell. Second round of experimentation, and yes, thank you Jesus, I am keeping records. I found a supplier of patchouli who has given me some lovely, thick, thirty year old stuff, but it's a pain in the arse to try to oxidize to get some sweetness to it.

Bah. Dilution. I need jojoba oil. Or spirits of grape. Either or. I don't like using alcohol, particularly since it limits the medium into which the scent can go, but I suspicion me so does oil. Well..crap.

One thing at a time. I'll get the jojoba. And maybe from now on, buy my absolutes in bloody dilution.
  • Hey, Nikki, go to Raven's Nest Herbals for those oils and absolutes. You can do a Search for those things, and she works with people via email. I've worked with her for years at our Renaissance Festival, and with her in opening a brick and mortar shop this fall.
