This morning we were joined by the magical Riwa-san! Surrounded by Kuromogi, Lemon Grass, Shell Ginger, and a beautifully shiny copper alembic, Riwa-san took us through the process of distilling essences and infusing them with natural spring water to make a gorgeous aromatic spray. We also sampled other essential oils and put together a small scent diary, making notes about how different scents make us feel. Isn't it funny how the same smell can bring up images of summer, toothpaste, candy, or even grandmothers depending on the person? Riwa-san, thank you for a wonderful experience! Please come again soon!
