The Poetry of Plants
The aromatic molecules of Clary Sage (Salvia sclarea) have captivated, enraptured and seduced the minds of many for centuries! Join me in the garden and by one of my copper stills to muse over the plant, find inspiration in one of Emily Dickinson’s poems (below) and revel in a few oils to blend with the euphoric Clary Sage.
Come slowly – Eden! (205) BY EMILY DICKINSON Come slowly – Eden! Lips unused to Thee – Bashful – sip thy Jessamines – As the fainting Bee – Reaching late his flower, Round her chamber hums – Counts his nectars – Enters – and is lost in Balms.
