Special #1: Whale Song - A Memorial Blend for Our Founder Eric Cech
A Portion of Proceeds will be Donated to Ocean Mammal Institute or OMI which is dedicated to awakening peoples' minds and hearts to nature's interconnected harmony. Their programs help individuals understand and feel their connection to nature, and give them the courage to act responsibly for the planet and its inhabitants. A bit about OMI. "We are proud to be the leading charity dedicated to the protection of whales and dolphins. Help us celebrate by adopting an Orca or Humpback Whale. Symbolic adoption supports our vision of a world where every whale and dolphin is safe and free."
Helichrysum (Special Aged)
As mentioned above a memorial blend for Eric could not be made without Helichrysum. It was his #1 favorite. As an avid athlete (he raced as a professional cyclist and triathlete in his younger years), Eric used it for muscle recovery and body aches. He revered it like GOLD.
Frankincense (Carterii & Serrata) CO2: Frankincense was another of Eric's favorites, and he especially enjoyed the combo of Carterii & Serrata. If any of our essential oils were a CO2 extraction, he tended to favor them out rightly. I think he just liked the aroma, to be honest, but he found Frankincense so intriguing for so many reasons, not necessarily tied to its therapeutic use at all. He found it exquisitely fascinating for its spiritual offerings and its support for meditation. He enjoyed its history which dates back to many writings or scriptures in various religions. Eric discusses CO2 extraction at length if you're interested in learning more.
Myrrh CO2: Often Eric applied Myrrh and Frankincense together, hence why he made a blend with the both of them that we offer during Christmas season. After doing some digging he found the pair were proven scientifically to be sensational healers together. Eric felt that just a slight detection of Myrrh was awfully lovely and somewhat sensual. He found it more appropriate (for whatever reasons) to topically apply Myrrh behind the ears, or on softer spots of the body like the neck, abdomen, and back, or sometimes a dab as a deodorant. NO, Myrrh is not typically used as a deodorant, but Eric enjoyed it's aroma so much it was his personal habit to dab it on for that purpose. He did not mind having his body enjoying Myrrh. He often just opened a bottle to get a whiff or two... or three. He thoroughly enjoyed smelling Myrrh.
Sandalwood (Royal Hawaiian, Special Aged): We have to admit, Sandalwood is simply too luscious and delicious, it is easy for anyone to fall in love with Sandalwood. This one, he just loved to wear on his wrists. It also bothered him about Sandalwood becoming endangered. Soon enough we'll be offering to a charity to help with sustainable growing/farming of Sandalwood. Eric wanted to make sure we carried the Sandalwood with the most superior aromatic and with Ananda Apothecary's proprietary process to age Sandalwood and other oils, we had to choose the Special Aged Sandalwood for this blend because he preferred it. You'll find it exquisite as well.
Cacao: Cacao?? Yes, I most definitely had to include Cacao essential oil. Eric lived on raw cacao! He ate it throughout the day and all week. He said it was the best superfood and antioxidant around and he indulged unabashedly on cacao. So I've added cacao to this blend because it was a huge player in his life. He didn't go a day without consuming it. We'd start the day with hot cocoa. We'd make a big mason jar in the mornings of raw cacao, coconut oil, maca, agave, vanilla essential oil, a pinch of salt and then blend it until it was smooth as silk. It's highly likely most of his research and writings were done on his cacao-fixes. He'd go through several raw cacao pies for lunch. Without debate, I had to include cacao!
Vetiver: Vetiver is added as a fixative here to the ground and rounds out the blend. It was one of his favorites when we'd get a new crop for the season. Eric would smell the varieties of Vetiver over and over. He liked the Earthy-ness of it. Although, one day Will from our Ananda team sent home Galbanum as an option when we were doing some home-blending and he found it surprisingly delightful. Eric was partial to the resinous oils.
Lemongrass: Lemongrass is a wildcard addition. Here's a bit of transparency for you. I had made seven different blends varying the amounts of oils and the fixative options. My base was: Helichrysum, Frankincense, Myrrh, and Sandalwood. After two days of letting the creations sit, I felt none were 'just right', yet. Then I remembered Lemongrass had shouted out to me, and I made a blend including Lemongrass and boom! Just like that, it was perfect.
