This was the very first essence I ever made and my favourite – just the memory of the soft, sweet scent of this flower makes me sigh with contentment and peace.  This lovely shrub could be found all over the grounds of the hotel where my husband and I were staying and I was seduced by its’ perfume.  It seems appropriate that this essence was the first, as its’ heart chakra energy opened my own heart to the language of the flowers.  If only I could infuse that delicious scent into the essence…..
