Join me and the mastery of Jennifer Butler this Sunday, August 7th for an extraordinary community event revolving on the theme of the Summer essence.
I will give a presentation and unveil my newest fragrance. The starting point was the essence of summer with melodies evoking the divine feminine. I’ve weaved fine threads of jasmine and other graceful florals with subtle hints of seashells and the constant rhythmic motion of ancient lunar tides reminding us of home. Diffused notes of a vintage Mysore sandalwood, oakmoss and orris in the base anchor the dreamy, artful nature of twilight with petals of crushed velvet. The mood is relaxed and elegant.
“Smell is a potent wizard
that transports you across thousands of miles
and all the years you have lived.”
~ Helen Keller
The sense of smell has been critical to the survival of human beings. Early in our evolution, when we were on all fours, our smell sense was vital to our survival. As we became upright, olfaction was no longer the dominant system. We still depended on it for locating our food, mating, and hunting however the other sense systems began to play a much larger role.
Some interesting smell facts:
* The sense of smell is 10,000 times stronger than any other sense.
* Every person experiences the same exact odor differently.
* We have a keener sense of smell later in our day.
* Woman have a more acute sense of smell than men. * Olfactory nerves can renew themselves. * Each of us has an individual odor thumb print.
* The right hemisphere of the brain is responsible for odor recognition.
* Smells fall into the following categories:
minty, floral, ethereal, musky, resinous, foul and acrid.

The word for smell in Spanish and French is “sentir” which means to feel / to smell.

In the United States the sense we tend to rely on the most is our sense of sight. Of all the senses in our collective cultural sensorium, “vision” is used to assess and determine situations. Looking back in history it was the modern printing press, introduced in 1440 by the German Johann Gutenberg that began our shift into the “seeing is believing” paradigm. Over the next hundred years it was aided by several other inventions, primarily the microscope. Micro in latin meaning “small” and scope “to see”. Philosophical ideas of the new era combined with the shift to a strong patriarchal system. All these factors working together in the shift to a culture primarily based on the sense of sight.

The sense of touch is the first and last one that we experience. It has the ability to distinguish between something soft, hard, smooth, wet, dry, etc. We experience this sense through receptors located on the skin, some areas being more sensitive than others. The skin is the largest organ of the body, like a sponge it is a porous membrane. In Aromatherapy the skin is one of the pathways we focus on when utilizing pure essential oils therapeutically.

There are almost 10,000 taste buds located in our mouths, which can distinguish five different types of flavors: sweet, salty, sour, bitter and unami. We are all familiar with the tastes of sweet, salty, sour and bitter, but, what is unami? Unami receptors pick up the taste of glutanic acid salts such as MSG.
The sense of taste is the weakest of all our senses and depends in part on the sense of smell. Evident by when we have a cold, and can’t taste our food.
Jennifer will share her wisdom on the balance of inner and outer beauty while guiding us on what works best for the vibration of our unique essence.
Hearing, unlike the sense of smell, taste and vision, is a mechanical process. Hearing is based on movement, sounds produce a vibrational wave which is picked up by the ears.
