FloraTherapy Plant Perfume

Live Botanical

FloraTherapy Plant Perfume

$78.00

Ambrosial nectar to celebrate the bountiful harvests from Live Botanical's Oregon garden and foraging over the summer, FloraTherapy is a decadent perfume that came to light through the long, thoughtful process of traditional techniques of enfleurage, distillation, and infusion. The aroma's centerpiece is a diverse collection of Jasmine varietals coupled with an infusion and distillation of Clary Sage, Rose, and Red Cedar. Weaving hypnotic florals with complex, herbaceous green elements to honor flowers that speak to the mysteries of the moon: lifting the veil between our waking and dreaming life. The conscious and unconscious. Inspired by the balsamic moon phase - the final stage of its cyclical process - FloraTherapy encourages contemplation in the profound beauty of darkness. Like fallen seeds buried deep in composted soil, preparing for new growth. The space for healing, rest, and regeneration. A culmination of the wisdom of previous cycles to carry visions of the future. Base notes of rich woods of cedar and balsam fir speak to this depth of greater knowing. The strength to find comfort in our capacity to experience life in all its forms...the joys, the sorrows, and every journey in between.

15ml

Every ingredient has been grown organically or ethically wild-harvested.

Living fragrances derived purely from whole plants can be fleeting. Part of the joy is sitting with the scent as it unravels from the floral top notes to the dried-down woody base notes. We find the process helps us be in the moment as it tells a beautiful story, an invitation for meditative daydreaming.

In daily rituals, it creates an intimate scent that is to be applied to pulse points throughout the day. Allow the perfume to breathe by warming it on the skin before inhaling deeply.  The scent can last from 1-4 hours (sometimes longer) depending on the wearer. Scent holds best on well-moisturized skin and porous material like our hair. 

If sitting with the scent for a period of time as part of a meditation or as aromatherapy, apply to the top of the wrist (preferably where there is arm hair and is easy to bring to the nose). Inhale in 5-10 minute increments or as time allows if doing something else (like working, journaling, reading, etc).

It makes a lovely addition to an unscented lotion or body oil to provide a light scent all over the body. Take a smaller than pea size amount of product and in your palm blend it into the carrier.

Founded by deeply-studied and wealth-of-knowledge herbalist Carolyn McRory in 2016, Live Botanical started its journey as a dream that formed over 20 years ago. The heart of Live Botanical is the intense desire to connect more with Mother Nature and share her beauty and wisdom with others; and Carolyn believes the path to a more sustainable society is to encourage ideas of conservation through compassion: we must see ourselves in nature and nature within ourselves to change mindsets. Through herbal-based skincare, Carolyn is able to tell a story to help forge a relationship with the many wonders of the natural world. With vivid botanical imagery and products designed for personal care, she hopes we are reminded every day of the beauty in the world and, more importantly, the beauty that lives within each of us.

Live Botanical’s philosophy is based upon four guiding principles: to live beautiful, to live fresh, to live responsible, and to live simple.

To Live Beautiful - Formulas are rooted in creating balance and harmony, and to enhance what makes each of us unique because they believe that loving who we are at this moment and following our intuition is where beauty begins.

To Live Fresh – Whole plant infusions, botanical extracts, unrefined oils, waxes, and butters are at the core of every product. Infusions and extracts are created in-house in their Portland, Oregon studio. And they start with locally- and regionally-sourced fresh herbs from small farms or their own micro-garden that they dry in house (instead of purchasing pre-dried herbs) as much as possible to ensure the potency and quality meets their high standards. They also source with an idea of using abundant herbs to limit their impact on the earth.

To Live Responsible - Both environmental and social responsibility are value statements they hold dear in every decision made. Sourcing follows strict guidelines, and ingredients not obtained regionally are fair-trade certified (when applicable). They work with farmers and producers who follow organic guidelines or ethical wildharvesting using rules outlined by United Plant Savers. Oils, butters, and waxes must be GMO free and unrefined or minimally refined depending on formulation requirements. Preservatives and lab-based ingredients are researched extensively for environmental impact and personal safety. They also actively give back to organizations who honor environmental stewardship and who work to uplift marginalized communities relating to equality and justice.

To Live Simple - They embrace the art of slow living by taking time to connect more with plants and customers to impart feelings of love, patience, and acceptance. Products are crafted to bridge current knowledge and traditional wisdom into every formula. They consider themselves anti-capitalists. This means they remain purposefully small with extremely low overhead to ensure products are affordable and markups are as low as possible. Their goals are based in the love of nature and helping others connect to the outside world.
