BPALS of Exalted Venus II

There should be no despair for you
While nightly stars are burning;
While evening pours its silent dew,
And sunshine gilds the morning.
There should be no despair—though tears
May flow down like a river:
Are not the best beloved of years
Around your heart for ever?
– Emily Brontë
A sweet, comforting oil: a balm for despair, a heart-healer, and a catharsis.
White lotus absolute (Nelumbo nucifera Gaertn.), blue lotus absolute (Nymphaea caerulea), Egyptian neroli essential oil (Citrus aurantium var. amara L), Bulgarian rose otto (Rosa x damascene) and rose petals from the TAL garden, lemon verbena essential oil and herb from the TAL garden (Lippia citriodora), raspberry leaf and fruit compound from the TAL garden (Rubus idaeus), apple pulp and fruit compound from the TAL garden (M. pumila), Sumatran benzoin tears and absolute (Styrax benzoin), and zhi zi (Gardenia jasminoidis).
Is it a dream? Is heaven so high
That pity cannot breathe its air?
Its happy eyes forever dry,
Its holy lips without a prayer!
My God! my God! if thither led
By Thy free grace unmerited,
No crown nor palm be mine, but let me keep
A heart that still can feel, and eyes that still can weep.
– John Greenleaf Whittier
During painful and frightening times such as ours, we sometimes try to protect ourselves from the horror and pain that we are experiencing by (intentionally or not) hardening ourselves to the suffering of others and to our own suffering and effectively closing ourselves off. This oil was crafted as a protection from the ravages of personal and global grief by enabling you to keep an open heart, letting the darkness of the world pass through you without injuring you. Squama assists in helping you remain able to acknowledge and process pain with eyes that remain open and hearts that remain open while enabling you to continue to react with love to yourself and to others no matter how dark the world may become.
.. let me keep a heart that still can feel, and eyes that still can weep.
The scales of a fish may seem delicate, but they are incredibly powerful. They aid in both camouflage and protection, and this oil will also aid you in knowing when to stand your ground, when to fight back, and when to fade into the kelp.
Pink lotus absolute ( Nelumbo nucifera Gaertn.), white willow bark (Salix alba), whole vanilla beans and vanilla absolute (Vanilla planifolia), lilac petals and leaf (Syringa vulgaris), fig leaf and fruit from the TAL garden (Ficus carica), Sumatran benzoin tears and absolute (Styrax benzoin), double-distilled Indonesian vetiver essential oil (Vetiveria zizanioides), tuberose absolute (Polianthes tuberosa), and melon rind (Cucumis melo).
Loosely inspired by remoras, this oil will assist you in befriending those who – at first glance – may seem to be your enemies, in finding (and charming) unexpected allies, and in guiding you to your destinations (literal, spiritual, and metaphorical) in safety.

An oil of effervescent charm, quirky humor, captivation, and enchantment. The allure of the odd, the magnetism of Poe’s “strangeness in the proportion,” the amplification and cultivation of the strange things about you that make you uniquely lovely.
