HERBS: BASIL, CLARY SAGE, MYRRH.
USES: PERFUME, AROMATHERAPY.
The last perfume I’ll share from the first batch was an adjustment of the first Dryad’s Touch I made.
The clary sage makes such a big difference with the fragrance.
I guess what I’ve noticed is no matter how little pine you use you need to be careful – it has the tendency to make a fragrance smell a little but medicinal or like cleaner.
Now if you’re making a natural cleaner, that’s great – but I was trying to make a natural perfume.
I’m pleased to say this incarnation of Dryad’s touch is much closer to what I was hoping for!
It smells lush and green – if I ever want to smell like a lush, verdant forest, this is the scent it I use.
It’s grounding and calming, with a hint of sass – which I think I can give credit to the basil for.
The myrrh balances everything out but, I do think I will try to add a little something to it the next time I make it.
All in all, it’s a nice fragrance I’ll use up!
I’m pretty happy with it.
