"Where better to care for the soul than in the details of our daily lives?....The soul has an absolute, unforgiving need for regular excursions into enchantment. It requires them like the body needs food and the mind needs thought... An enchanted world is one that speaks to the soul, to the mysterious depths of the heart and imagination where we find value, love and union with the world around us. As mystics of many religions have taught, that sense of rapturous union can give a sense of fulfillment that makes life purposeful and vibrant." ~ Thomas Moore.

Update on Jasmine Enfleurage and Jasmine Wine !

They both worked ! For the Enfleurage.....such a simple process to put blossoms in a jar of oil and remove them, and have a wonderful scented oil!
I removed the petals from the oil today, April 30th, and the smell is divine! It's just like wearing the blossoms in my hair. Its delicate yet enough fragrance as I rub the oil into my skin. The Rice Bran Oil is delicate in itself and is so divine to rub into the skin, but the added Jasmine fragrance is sublime! It also picked up a nice golden/green color.
I was rubbing it into my hands as I walked over to my neighbor her and she could smell it. 
Now I just have to keep adding more jasmine petals to the oil for another 3 or 4 days to strengthen the fragrance until the strength is where I want it. But I have to wait until it rains enough to produce more blooms. But there is no rush, it already smells wonderful.

I'm going to try the same with Gardenia's....if my neighbor allows me to pluck a few blooms from their huge bushes.

As for the Jasmine Infused wine......first I poured a bit and smelled the new mix of both the wine and something new, Jasmine. Then I tasted it and it is most exquisite! A very unique sensation to taste what I've only been previously smelling. It definitely enlivens the heart and soul and is as Jeanne Rose says.

I think today also calls for another delicious pot of tea for a conference call with Lucia Renee at 3;00.

Many Blessings!


  1. I did something like this with roses. I put them in cornstarch in a tin container and tossed it around each day. I added more rose petals from really fragrant roses as needed. Eventually I sifted them out and had a nice light rose scented powder to use after showers.

  2. seanymph now nice ! I make my own body powder too from essential oils. I love it after showers too LOL. Thank you.
