BPAL Madness!

Recommended Posts

Cleaning House is a blast of fresh air and sunlight, crafted to blast away any residual tension or negativity in your home.

Use to anoint purification and home blessing candles, and to anoint areas of the house that feel particularly stagnant or shadowed.

 

This oil contains lime oil, lime rind, lemongrass, angelica, palmarosa, and frankincense.

Smells-wise (can't speak to the ritual element here, personally) this is a very bright citrus to start. Mostly it's the lemongrass with a bit of lime added in.  The lime kind of fades within the first few minutes but the lemongrass lingers as the angelica comes in more. It's still a very bright blend but the angelica adds a bit of woody herbiness.  I'm not really getting any palmarosa, which is fine for me cause that tends to be a bit more floral than I like.  The frankincense is also fairly quiet here, though I believe it's adding a lot to the depth of this.  Around ten to fifteen minutes the frankincense starts to show up a little more distinctly, and it's very reminiscent of the frankincense that was in a couple other recent TAL blends (Bounce, Quies) which also reminds me a fair bit of the frankincense in Choirs of Angels from the Ars Inspiratio collection.  Overall, the scent here is bright, not quite as "warm" as I think of a "sunlight" blend being (Choirs had more of that burning brightness for instance) but definitely very fresh and clean.

Wet, I get nothing but sugary lime (reminds me of those candies that are shaped like lime wedges and coated in sugar). As it dries the frankincense and angelica emerge, although lime is still the star of the show. Extremely bright, almost sharp, and very clean and energizing. I'm not familiar with palmarosa, so I can't really speak to how prominent it is, and I can't distinguish the lemongrass note (although that could be due to my inexperience with fragrances). This oil is significantly less sweet than Bounce, which I received in the same order. I agree with Ythik that it's not really warm, which is really interesting, and it does have an intriguing depth. I bought this to wear, rather than for rituals, but I don't see myself ever wearing it out - maybe at home for a day of spring cleaning? - but I do enjoy it and will try to find another way to use it.
