About That Perfume Workbook

Aside from here, on my "business blog" and over at my "not business blog", oh, and at Etsy, there's not been a lot of pushing and shoving of this workbook down the throats of unsuspecting innocent potential Natural Botanical Perfumers. Why? I'm not comfortable with doing that kind of thing, regardless of the fact that it's biz'nezzzz. If I have to pound you into submission, cause you to move to a new ZIP code, malign you on public forums, or make underhanded snarky remarks about your lack of abilities as a human being because you didn't rush on over and hit the "buy now" button for my uber sexy workbook, then I don't want your business. Because that would just make you a sheep, and I'm not a shepherd.

Now if, on the other hand, you decided you wanted a well thought out workbook full of practical applications that would help clear up and dispel the great natural perfumery myth, then yeah, hit me up.

Tropical Hempatchouli Body Butter

I've been using my own product, the Tropical Hempatchouli Body Butter, and I have say it's pretty wonderful. Smells rich and earthy with tropical hints of coconut and cacao, sinks into skin wonderfully, and is great for moisturizing your face! I use it on my face every day -- and my arms, and my skin looks nice and smooth and hydrated. I tend toward dry skin this time of year and this butter takes care of that (so long as I apply it right out of the shower). It's whipped so the texture is soft and fluffy, which seems a bit deceptive as one would think a big dollop would be perfect -- not! A big dollop is waaaayyyyy too much! A tiny scraping is all that's needed. And the butter comes in a really nifty reusable latch top apothecary jar. Really cool.

I know, it's so tiny! When I get the first copy (for purposes of editing some more) I'll take a photo and post it here.
