The waters surface is still, until bubbles begin to pop up from beneath the crystal clear water, and then ripples. Water Lily, the loveliest of the water nymphs, emerges from the water, her hair and eyes as blue as the tide, and her skin as fair as the foam on the sea. She slicks her wet hair back and bathes in the warm sun for a moment, before gliding back into the water into a backstroke. She swims around the water lillies, theirs stems and roots tickling her toes as she smells their humid, exquisite perfume. The water lilies all fully open like little soldiers all in row, knowing they are being admired by their namesake.
The Water Nymph swims just below the waters surface, until she reaches the most magnificent of the blue lotus flowers, their lily pads letting he She rises from the water, her skin like glass and shining in the sun, her hand holding tightly to the little blue glass bottles she created from washed up pieces of sea glass. She pulls open the shell top of one of the bottles and the heavenly smell of blue lotus, residual in the bottle, greets her nose. She closes her blue-green eyes, and begins to recite the incantation she knows by heart. After a short pause, she opens her eyes, and holding the small bottle underneath a lotus flower, she gently squeezes it like a sponge, releasing golden droplets into her bottle, the pure essence of the blue lotus. When she lets go of the hearty lotus, it miraculously springs back to shape, as if untouched.
She dives into the cool lake water, and swims along the depths until she reaches the dam. Like rain free falling from the clouds, she flies over the waterfall and into the raging river below. Her body glides across the rapids in a way that can only be magical. She makes her way to the Meadow Nymphs, and makes a trade for a portion of what she's collected. Yarrow and Chamomile essences to add to her beauty elixir.
She races back to her hidden grotto under the lake, and finds the Orchard Nymphs have left her a portion of their fresh oils as promised. She pulls out her flute and begins to play the tune she was taught by her mother, to thank the earth for her bounty. She blends and she stirs the essences into the oils, until the glistening blue oil begins to churn on its own. She peers down at her reflection in the water, her complexion has become crepey and wrinkley over her journey. She caresses her skin with the fragrant elixir, and like magic, her complexion returns to it's youthful appearance. To appease the spirits of the water, she returns to her lake and offers a portion of her potion to the waters.
It's no secret that I love Blueberry and Plum Oils. They are fast absorbing, chock full of antioxidants, vitamins, and nutrients for skin, non-comedogenic (which means they won't clog pores), and are created with seeds from the organic food industry (a sustainable by-product). They are also some of the plant silkiest oils Ice experienced, and they are created in my neck of the woods. I've also added Sugar Squalane, a superb oil created from plant sugars, and naturally found on skin, it not only moisturizes and protects, but helps other ingredients penetrate the skin. It's antiinflammatory, reduces redness, and will not clog pores. Our artisan co-distillation of Polish Chamomile, German Chamomile and Yarrow, grown here in the Jade Forest organic permaculture garden, was bright blue, and rich in azulene, a highly antiinflammatory plant medicine. The oil from our co-distillation is also antimicrobial, and very healing to acne and dry skin. The final ingredient is Blue Lotus Absolute from Thailand. Rare, and extremely hard to source, this gorgeous oil is not only magic for your skin, but lends the most beautiful scent song to this facial elixir, with it's ethereal, cool water notes, and graceful high floral notes. No fragrance is added for scent, and the scent is from the perfect concentration of beautiful skin-loving botanical extractions within the formulation.
