I made a lovely salve of sorts last night which smells of BPAL Rome, a blend of rose, chamomile, juniper and cypress. It's great for smearing on dry parts after the shower or bath.

Recipe:

1. Combine in a microwave-safe container...

4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp yellow beeswax chips
optional: 1 tbsp, approximately, of cocoa butter

2. Microwave until all melted. Don't over-nuke it.

3. Break open one capsule of vitamin E as a preservative and add to the melted mixture (optional).

4. Add 1/2 to 1 imp-ful of any BPAL scent you like. (I had about 2/3 of an imp of Rome left.) Mix thoroughly.

5. Pour into a small jar and cool. Put it in the freezer to speed up the solidification, if you simply cannot wait.

This also works with any essential oil or perfume you happen to like. I tend to go nuts and smear the goo all over my arms and legs and put on a fluffy robe, thereby helping my skin to absorb the moisture. Olive oil is great for dry irritated winter skin, and so is cocoa butter. (If you use cocoa butter, the natural chocolate fragrance of it will probably come through in your salve, so consider that before you add it.)

Man, I smell great!

Whee.

My next shipment will contain:

I'm also a fan of Kali, Embalming Fluid, Siren, Envy, Katherine, and Kathmandu...but I have imps of those around for now.

I am wearing Kali today. It smells like a sexy box of chocolates. Eat me, bitch. :-D
