Who I am

I’m on the ground so to speak. From frolicking in lavender fields in France to flying hook pulls in the foot hills of Northern California. I like to be there. To smell the aroma of thousands of flowers all at once. To feel the energy ripping through spirit and flesh all at once. Hollering, laughing, crying, singing and dancing the ecstatic in prayer to the beat of the drum. I want to connect. To create. To make perfume and other smelly stuff. To delight in the awesome wonders that mother nature has to offer and shine a little light through the darkness to humbly give back. That is a bit of who I am. I’m also old school crazy as all heck, live in the woods, and have been wearing John Fluevog footwear and listening to Iggy Pop since the 1970’s.

This is what I’ve learned and wish to share through my work at Isis

I’ve learned that different Chamomile essential oils smell curiously like chocolate when blended together and that Clove when blended with Rose smells like Carnation. I’v experienced that Cardamom with Ginger and Tulsi makes a lovely aphrodisiac and that a good Mandarin Petitgrain can fool a nose in believing it’s true Neroli. I’ve learned that essential oil from Thyme that grows close to sea level usually contains a high phenol content making it more aggressive than the Thyme oils produced from those growing at higher elevations. I’ve also learned that the secondary metabolites present in many essential oils can have a dramatic effect at addressing viral conditions at a cellular level and help improve our quality of life. But most of all, what I have leaned through the quarter of a century of working with all of you, is what you bring. Each individual fingerprint is as unique as each fingerprint of essential oil. Your personal divine essence with all your hopes, fear, pain, joy and stories that you share with me is what I’ve learned most from. It has been a journey shared in healing, growing and learning that keeps us all connected to heal as a planet and for this planet together. And for that I am eternally grateful and thank you. Call it Primal Survival 101 through Thyme.
