Yet the inspiration for this spray was born from a memory. Years ago I was shopping with my mother and her sister Mary in some funky little artist coop type of place, somewhere around Amherst, NY. Mary discovered some scented sprays, one of which was geranium (and another, carnation). She declared in that moment how much she loved the scent of this plant and she began spraying herself, the air, my mother, me ... even the salesclerk ... all the while laughing and enjoying that magical moment.
I also recall wandering her gardens with her as she would pluck a leaf, massage it a bit, and inhale the fragrance. Deeply. And then she'd invite me (insist, really) to do the same.
To this day, whenever I catch the scent of geranium I recall the playful Spirit of this very playful woman. I created this spray with the intention that it carry a bit of that playful Nature as well as the clean, crisp scent of natural geranium into your home and into your heart.
And this is another botanical creation I'll be featuring during the Open Studios & Block Party weekend at Whiting Mills in sunny Winsted, Connecticut. If you're in the area ~ stop by June 6 and 7 to check it out ~ and all the other amazing talents!
