luna65 Posted January 8, 2012 Share Posted January 8, 2012 A Treasure of Copper Perhaps the oldest metal in recorded history, copper is known for its balancing properties of male and female energies, embodying such qualities as love and artistic creativity. Our interpretation of this element, associated with the planet Venus, is a symbolic combination of resilient strength which is also highly malleable. The femininity of golden fleshy fruits: peach, mango, papaya, apricot and pear; with a firm woody core of oak, cedar, redwood and teak. As a finishing touch our potion glows with cosmetic grade swirling copper mica. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Magickal Meanings of Ingredients: PEACH ~ Love.

And slowly but surely the wood aspect emerges, and as I smelled it I thought, "This is definitely a masculine mix." It's like they twine together and yet are seperate. And then the two aspects merge in the final drydown into an other, in a way, but still unique threads.There's something very compelling to me about it, just to smell it, although I'm still not sure about wearing it. But there's virtue enough in fragrance as a creative exercise as much as a utilitarian one. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
