Kedra Hart had this to say about her experience with Patchouli... 

"If I had to choose only one word to describe Patchouli, it would be “Primal.”  To me, it is the Essence of Feeling.  I reach for it when I need a little bit of grounding or to comfort and soothe. One whiff and I feel like I just got a big hug from the Universe!  

My personal Patchouli story goes back to 1970 when I was around 4 years old.  It was a hot Summer day in LA, and as fate would have it, my young bohemian self came to be at the Janov Institute for Primal Scream Therapy. 

I remember it like it was a dream.  I came into the waiting room and a very emotional John Lennon (yes, John Lennon) was there, winding down from a Primal Session with my father who was his therapist.  To me he was all hair and looked like Jesus in his long white robe.  Oh, and Smelly!  It was a strangely familiar Earthy aroma that emanated from him, and I remember that this manly, almost animalic scent was so strong that it filled the entire room space! 

When he saw me he beckoned me over to say hello.  I imagine now, that from his spent primal self he must have felt a connection to something in my innocent child-self-mind-space that drew his attention to my corner at that particular moment.  And so, there he was calling to me, wanting to engulf me in a warmly abundant hug, and as you can imagine the last thing I wanted was a hug from a smelly Patchouli Primal Screamer!

Not one to be deterred, this industrious Patchouli Loving Jesus Christ Superstar proceeded to lure me over to his corner with a handful of Chiclets.  Yes, that’s right, I have always been a sucker for the simple pleasures and those Chiclets did the trick!  Yep, those pretty little candy gems were even more fun than I first imagined they would be, as I learned about gum and how to chew these tiny colorful treats instead of swallowing them whole.  It was like a magic trick.  And for a short while, this became a tradition with us – the “Jesus Man” would greet me with Chiclets, and I would give him big a hug.  It turned out to be one of the few perfectly reciprocal relationships in my life.  I was OK with the “Patchouli Hugs,” as long as he didn’t forget the Chiclets."  –Kedra Hart

OPUS OILS is one of the few niche perfumers involved in the quickly growing field known as “Natural Perfumery.” Natural Perfumes have been with us for thousands of years.  Recently, Italian Archeologists discovered a Perfume Production site in the Mediterranean that is at least 4,000 years old!  Primitive Perfumery began with the ritual use of incense, gums, and resins in religious ceremonies.  The word “perfume” comes from the Latin per fume, “through smoke.”  Eventually the ancients began to incorporate scented plants into animal and vegetable oils, which they used to anoint their body.  These Natural Perfumes were the only fragrances used throughout most of human history.  It was not until 1868 that the first synthetic fragrance was produced (“Coumarin,” which smelled like fresh mowed hay).  Recently, Natural Perfumery is enjoying a renaissance as modern-day artisan perfumers are rediscovering the joy of blending with only natural materials.  Natural Perfumes tend not to last as long as commercial synthetic fragrances, and therefore need to be reapplied more often.
