We have been exploring scent on a much deeper level, diving not only into the chemical make up of essential oils but also into how scent is inextricably tied to our memories and emotional experiences. In our inquiry, we have been fortunate to be able to distill several essential oils to work with in our formulas.
The access to high quality plants and the ability to witness the aromatic compounds being pulled, coaxed, extracted from the natural materials has given me great joy and is one of the many reasons we are sharing some of our house-distilled essential oils with you! These oils are ALIVE. You can see it in their color, smell it in the scent and feel their life-force on your skin.
WHAT IT IS
Anoint yourself with the energetic of cedar with our house-distilled cedar wood essential oil roll on.
WHY WE LOVE IT
Atlas Cedarwood has a variety of energetic properties and practical uses in aromatherapy and perfumery. Used for building ships, bath houses, making incense and shrines, the wood itself has deep roots in both the masculine and feminine. The scent of the oil we distilled from the heart wood of the tree that was cut down near our home is like a warm embrace. It has a mysterious soulful, contemplative quality, refined and introspective.
The first note is sweet, slightly musky yet still clear and bright. The second note is woody, a full warm body with fleeting balsamic notes. On the skin, it merges with one’s own scent, changing and evolving throughout the day. As time moves forward, the scent tends to get sweeter and sweeter, a lesson I think the tree gives to us. This is the scent of life, fleeting but sweet up until the very end.
HOW TO USE
Apply to the inside of each wrist, on both sides of the neck, behind each ear and on the forehead to anoint oneself with the energetic of cedar.

WHAT IT IS
Anoint yourself with the calming essence of lavender with our house-distilled cedar wood essential oil roll on.
WHY WE LOVE IT
The all mighty lavender, what is not to love? Lavender grows abundantly in the Ojai Valley, so much so that we have the Ojai Lavender Days Festival every year. We were fortunate to get a big harvest from a local producer and we distilled lavender essential oil from the fragrant, fresh plant material. The scent of our essential oil is sweet and herbaceous, a classic floral lavender aroma with a sweeter, deeper note. The energetic of this oil is cooling, calming, and nurturing. It has a subtle vibrational quality, of the om, that place of pure stillness.
Lavender is widely used as an aromatherapeutic oil to calm both the mind and the body. For the skin, lavender also has these soothing properties. It can be used as a burn ointment, for insect bites and itchy skin, to ease bruising, wounds and other topical ailments.
