Custom Oil Blend

(This is mostly for my record.)

Last night, darklingrose created a custom perfume oil blend for me that I adore. It smells really good. Warm and slightly sultry. It took about an hour of testing and figuring out how the oil scents mixed and matched with my body chemistry.

The oil is composed of:
~7 parts amber essence
~5 parts Isis oil
~2 parts French Vanilla by Scents of Creation
~.5 part Cassia (by hugheslr@aol.com, diluted to 1:15)

The Cassia is surprisingly strong and spicy but works well on cutting the sweet of the vanilla that had an almost too buttery scent to it. Now, I'm pondering some sort of light, daytime citrus type scent because I really like it when one of my co-workers eats an orange and the scent wafts over to me.

[PS: Would sbtw please drop me an email and say hello. From the friends list, it's pretty obvious we've probably met. I'd like to know who you are before I add you back. Thanks.]

Too Accurate...

Breznsy keeps hitting too close to the mark for comfort lately. I find this week's Sagittarius horoscope particularly sharp considering my previous [work] post and my recent Abstract Thoughts post on my diet.

You're progressing nicely in your efforts to master life's most complicated skills. For instance, you're making better and better mistakes all the time. You're getting pretty good at being three places at once, too; and with every passing month you know more about using your fears to motivate you so they won't paralyze you. What you'd benefit from most right now, though, is a refresher course in the simplest fundamentals. For starters, you still have a lot to learn about how to sleep and eat. And it's not too far-fetched to say that you could use some breathing lessons. For that matter, Sagittarius, you're not exactly a PhD in the art of happiness. I suggest you sniff around to see if there are any crafty elders offering workshops on how to regard everything that comes your way as a blessing.

Breathing lessons, anyone?
