While making my rose water hydrosol the other day, I was fascinated by the color loss in the rose petals from the process.
.
In the top photo, the rose petals were just picked, placed around a small brick, and then distilled water poured overtop. The bottom photo is after the steam distillation process (minus the brick) when the roses have given up their color, scent, and other properties. 🌹

My week of aroma extraction experiments is still going strong! 💪
.
Tonight I made a Rose Water Hydrosol (aka Rose Distillate) through steam distillation. I made this a few months ago, but I used dried roses that time. This time I used fresh rose petals. 🌹 Rose water hydrosol can be used as a facial toner/refresher, or added to other products like hand creams or lotions.
.
In case you’re confused by the photos - Top right: 6 fresh roses, top left: stock pot with inverted lid and ice pack, middle photo: ice cubes, bottom left: a brick, not a slice of meatloaf (don’t let your eyes fool you, you’ll never cut into that thing with a knife! 😂), bottom right: finished product - clear rose water hydrosol. 💃

One of my favorite quotes that, to me, reveals the depth of our sense of smell is from the book “Worlds of Sense” by Constant Classen. “According to Walter Ong, for instance, many characteristics of the modern West - the emphasis on analysis over synthesis, detachment over involvement, appearance over substance, among others - are related in part to an emphasis on sight, which manifests similar characteristics (at least according to Western sensory values) in its mode of apprehending the world. Ong writes:
Sight reveals only surfaces. It can never get to an interior as an interior, but must always treat it as somehow an exterior. If understanding is conceived of by analogy with sight alone.....rather than by analogy also with hearing......as well as with smell and taste, understanding is ipso facto condemned to dealing with surfaces which have a ‘beyond’ it can never attain to.
Smell, on the other hand, is by nature concerned with essences, with the life-giving breath which unites interiors and exteriors in a dynamic interchange, and thus provides the basis for a very different conceptual model than sight.” Classen C. (1993). Worlds of Sense. London England: Routledge Publishing.

When it blooms, it hails - to diversify the snowfeed from the East Coast.
Tantrums at sunset.
The third & final round.
Our vegetation here is not easily scared, though. Daffodils & hellebores ignored the punches.

It never just rains in Portland (I mean, it also hails & even snows once every blue blooming season) - the sun is equally very generous.
We have an amazingly fresh green vegetation year-round I carry on & on singing odes to.
Moisture in the air, moisture to your cells. Artemisia, represented by the species of mugwort, wormwood, southernwood, and tarragon, is soaking in the vast ocean of meanings in various cultures and contexts. Among my personal favorites - symbol of good luck & protection from diseases, one of the Eight Precious Things in Chinese culture.
Also, in 2011 professor Tu Youyou, leader of the secret 523 Project, which started in the middle of Cultural Revolution and led to discovery of a critical & efficient malaria cure, artemisinin, in wormwood, won Lasker Award. And consequently, the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 2015. You can read more via link in profile.
Many greatest effects - including the scent, needless to say. Recently, Hanyul released a new line, featuring artemisia, and after a couple of weeks of complementing my current routine, I'm quite content.
Today's mail (in between dramatic hailing nature tantrums) cheered me up with the the samples introducing a new spring range from Fragonard, Tout Ce Que J'Aime - will get back to them in the near future.
