Queen Mother: what's her deal, anyway? August 27 2012, 1 Comment

We've had lots of questions about Queen Mother this year, so I figured I'd elaborate on the topic a bit...

Firstly, I did not expect return requests for her this year! Which is why we did not have any in stock for this year. Lesson learned: Bottle her up every year!

For those of you who did not get to experience Queen Mother last year, the concept behind it is taking the last bits of Pumpkin Queen, adding oils that age well (ie. patchouli, orris) and tucking it away in a dark cool place for an entire year before offering it in very limited quantities. Our blend from last year was:

Queen Mother I

Last years Pumpkin Queen oil with 5 year aged patchouli, jasmine essence and the blackest vetiver, co-distilled with honeysuckle blossom.

 

Each year this blend will be different. For some reason, I can't quite remember why I didn't tuck away a bottle for this year. I suppose I didn't think it would be very popular. At any rate, rest assured, she'll be back next year for sure!
