An olfactory ode to love and loss. Heirloom roses, memories wrapped in woodsmoke, a scattering of ashes. Contains an infusion of Balm of Gilead - an ancient herb for dispelling sadness and soothing sorrowful hearts.
“I will soothe you and heal you, I will bring you roses. I too have been covered with thorns.” ― Jalaluddin Rumi, 1207
