Blogs of Interest – Part 2 – White Lotus Aromatics

White Lotus Aromatics is the website, blog and on-line shop specializing in essential oils, sourced and operated by Suzanne and Christopher McMahon based in Port Angeles, Washington.

This is a wonderful site for those interested in aromatherapy and essential oils for their own use, for those formulating artisanal products and for natural perfumers.

Christopher has been making trips to India and other countries since the 1990’s and buys his oils directly from farmers.  The oils he offers are of the highest quality, either organic or wild harvested and are offered in the form of oils, CO2 extracts or absolutes.  Many of the oils are offered from different countries and all are listed with a brief description of their uses and the types of perfume they would be suited for.

White Lotus also has a newsletter with articles and information on different oils. They have recipes for natural perfumes and attars (a type of Indian perfume) which are easy to follow and prepare.

There are many on-line sellers of essential oils but I recommend White Lotus Aromatics for their integrity and high quality of products offered.

Blogs of Interest – Part 1 – Scent Hive

Today, I would like to introduce my readers to three scent-related blogs I enjoy reading, that never fail to provide solid information about aromatherapy, organic and natural products and perfume.  The three blogs are not only informative but are visually appealing, well laid out and a pleasure to read.


I have been reading Trish at the Scent Hive – – for the past few years.  Trish is based in Portland and her blog reviews natural and organic perfumes and beauty products.  Her blog is a wealth of information on the latest perfume launches by well-known natural perfumers.  She frequently holds draws to accompany perfume launches.  Although Scenthive primarily reviews natural products, Trish is not a hard and fast purist and will feature non-organic products from time to time.

Style-wise, Scenthive has a spacious and pretty feel to it.  The blog banner is designed by a local Portland artist and Trish accompanies her posts with interesting artwork sourced to fit the theme of her posts.

For up to the minute reviews on the latest in natural perfumes visit Trish at the Scenthive.
