Gaia’s Protocol

by Regina Fancy (2020-03-09)

To begin, I recommend mixing together ¼ Gaia’s Protocol Review cup of straight vodka to about 5 drops of essential fragrance or oil of your choice. Determine how robust you want the scent, let the mixture mature anywhere from 48 hours up to a month. The longer it sits, the stronger it will be. After your fragrance has sat for your chosen amount of time, add 2 tablespoons of distilled water. If you find that the parfume is too strong, you can then add more water to get your preferred fragrance strength. A trick to making your scent last longer, add a about a tablespoon of glycerin to your mixture. Glycerin is a neutral, sweet-tasting, colorless, thick liquid that freezes to a gummy paste and has a high boiling point. Glycerin can be dissolved into water or alcohol. It can be found at health stores and vitamin shops as well. When glycerin is added to water and alcohol, it will remain liquid and assist all of the ingredients to meld together faster and efficiently.Once you are ready to begin blending your fragrance/essential oils to build your unique scent, be aware of these 3 important stages of scented oil. The very first is the base stage, this level will last the longest on the skin. The base level will include oils like vanilla, cinnamon, and sandalwood. The second level is considered the middle stage, this stage adds to the scent for a good amount of time; however it won't last as long as the base stage. The middle stage includes oils such as lemongrass, geranium, neroli, and ylang-ylang. The final stage is the top level, which is exactly what it says it is, and that is the top scent. The top levels lasting point is not a long as the other two levels, but it does add to the over all scent considerably. Top level stage can include oils like rose, lavender, jasmine, bergamot, and orchard. When putting together your unique fragrance and you're combing more than one scent, add the base level oil first, followed by the middle level oil, and finish it off with the top level oil.
