Discovering the Nectar of Immortelle

Sometimes one finds the most incredible treasures in the most unexpected places. In this case, the treasure was off a highway running along the southern coast of Corsica, down a steep and rutted dirt road where cars could not pass without fear of being stranded at the bottom of the ravine, across a small creek, a moderate walk through the forest and then a stroll across an open plateau overlooking fields of helichrysum and beautiful valleys.… Read more

Immortelle: Helichrysum Essential Oil

Immortelle by David Crow

I would prefer to avoid what botanists and historians and linguists might have to say or postulate; I would rather not search for archaic herbal lore that would lead to stories about Napoleon’s infatuation with the perfumed landscape of his Corsican home and other such tiresome and probably inaccurate anecdotes.… Read more

The First Release of the Corsican Collection: Citsus (Rock Rose)

The first time I met Cistus oil was many years ago. I used it a few times in some experimental perfume blends and was impressed with its depth, richness and intriguing complexity. After that I put the vial away and forgot about it; when I opened the drawer many years later and took out the oil its fragrance was as full and intense as when I had last smelled it.… Read more

The Practice of Aromatic Alchemy

david crow alchemy

When we approach an essential oil with concentration and mindfulness it begins to reveal hidden dimensions of beauty, power and intelligence that are not ordinarily noticed. As we integrate these new perceptions into a greater awareness of our own physiological reactions to the plant’s essence, we begin to understand how we are deeply connected to all of life, specifically to the photosynthetic beings that give us nourishment and medicines.… Read more
