For some time now I've been struggling with keeping up with the Etsy shop, teaching online courses, writing tutorials, teaching in-person classes, and generally trying to figure out what you might like that I can make and sell. Sort of beating my head against the wall over it, actually. I haven't had a lot of opportunity to make something that I truly love, which explains why I can't keep stocked up on things in the shop -- no two soaps are ever the same, I throw some things together willy-nilly in the hopes you will like it when I'm not even 100% sure I like it!
Well, no more of that. The products I contribute that I've felt a real connection with thus far are a few different bars of soap -- anything patchouli, the poppymint soap, which is a big favorite (of mine), kyphi incense of all stripes, hydrosols, and on the rare occasion, when I'm being true to myself, a perfume -- like Parma, or Atay. A few skin products I really dig, like the Strange and Unusual soap I made a few years back with Himalayan sea salt and red clay -- that was fun, and the little pots du jour (which are going to become the norm now) of either solid perfumes, balms, or butters. I love making things that are intensely scented, that make me feel uplifted, inspired, happy. Just happy.
So from now on, The Scented Djinn's motto is 'making something beautiful'.
