There's a sweet brutality that wafts about many of my meadows here. Yarrow blooms sway with breathtaking beauty in the very same spot that unthinkable tragedies likely occurred more than a good time or two.
Something about that is comforting to me, as odd as that will sound to those who've not known much suffering.There's just something beautiful about living beyond tragedy, honoring the pain of it all, understating that even though there has been suffering beauty still prevails.
Yarrow I'd say is the embodiment of this, with her delicate petals & her oh so stunningly laced leaves it's hard to imagine that she's anything but delicate or even untouched from pain.She fools with her lace as she knows deep wounds & blood that would flow to the point of death if she had not been packed into those very gashes inflicted from hate.
It's these things that I admire it's these things that I look up to. The ability to appear unaffected in the face of sufferings, tragedies, & hardships when the truth of the matter is we are simply adapted. We are simply able to still see the beauty through the horror of it all because my dear we have already survived it all.
Wild rugged mountain top Yarrow gives way to stunningly complex top notes that dance between the unknown & almost licorice realms.
She swirls with the calmness required to survive these tragedies that befall us all with middle tones of illusive & fresh white Spanish Lavender you've not likely set eyes or scent to before.
A layer of true castoreum dries down to a place of mouth watering sweetness that can only be descried as feral vanilla all wild & free.
Yes yarrow remembers what it's like to see the beauty through the tragedy & this is the gift of scent I would like to pass on to you.
