Listening to stories, and blending scents to evoke those treasured moments.
It happens every year. The sky turns white to grey, and the air starts smelling like smoke. It’s become a regular conversation topic over meals, social media, at meetings… The haze is back. What’s the PSI today? Doesn’t it smell terrible… Do you wanna go on a quick trip? (The last one is always me :D)
Our body oils are blended from therapeutic grade essential oils, so you’ll feel calmer and revived from your first whiff.
And it’s really an art. Whether you’re wrapping simple gifts with cloth, or using elaborately printed paper fastened with just one piece of tape, the Japanese style of gift wrap is deceptively simple. Rush, and you’ll end up with a mess. It takes patience, lots of trial and error, and rather nimble fingers to get it right. Youtube videos are also great 😀
Lavender reminds me of childhood. Playing dress-up with my mum’s accessories and perfume. It’s a familiar scent that always makes me feel at home.
I’m weak for Japanese fountain pens and rows of ink in all colors, feel-good aromatherapy face mists, and gold paper with brush strokes and the finest print || 花開。心也開。美好。一曰釆 ||
“Their out-breath is our in-breath, our exhale, their inhale.” That’s always been true, but we often forget how people and plants are meant for each other. It’s been quite an adventure, uncovering their secrets 🌼
Everybody needs a bit of solitude. Whether it’s time to process what’s happened this week, or a quiet space to rediscover yourself. We organise our thoughts, rediscover our centre, and face the days ahead with renewed peace and clarity.
Our sense of smell has the closest link to our memories, so it seemed only natural to create a custom blend for these quiet moments through the week. Bergamot to release anger and bring back joy, Frankincense to feel calm and centred, Geranium for balance and Grapefruit for optimism.
If you’re having a rough time and find it hard to soothe your soul, perhaps our Solitude custom blend can help you settle down too. For enquiries, drop us a note.
