Tapestries & Prayer Flags (floral, sweet): jasmine, vanilla
The name of this oil comes from a memory of walking through a small alley made of tapestries and Tibetan prayer flags walking into the G*psy Market in Little 5 Points, Atlanta back in the early 2000s. My sister and I would venture into L5P and grab dinner and walk around shops. One of our favorite places to go was this shop. where an elderly gentleman hand rolled incense and made custom fragrance oil blends. I always bought a vial of vanilla jasmine anytime we went, and as such wanted to recreate it for my Atlanta collection.
The reason the price is significantly more on this oil than the others is because the main fragrance is jasmine. It takes around 10,000 pounds of jasmine flowers to produce a kilo of oil, and the process is more work intensive because it cannot be processed like normal essential oils or it loses its essence. Using actual jasmine absolute instead of synthetic or jasmine fragrance adds a larger cost to this cuticle oil, but yields a heavenly scent.
Every carrier oil selected for this was picked for its specific restorative properties. Included are jojoba, grape seed, hempseed, rose hip, and castor oils.
