About Taylor

I'm a twenty something happy, animal loving, curious experimenter. I love reaching back into history and trying old recipes for cosmetics or foods. I'm constantly asking "Why?" My curiosity has me trying new things. I love taking walks with my dog as well as staying at home to cuddle with the dog and my cats. Some of my favorite scents include Hinoki Wood, Rose Garden, Jasmine and Gladiator.

Okay, I have a confession to make. When I first started making my own personal care products, I did not like lavender. My exposure to lavender was fairly limited as a child and it smell medicinal and like old grandmas to me. This was long before that I learned that lavender can smell widely different [...]
