Honeysuckle bouquet

Post # 1
Hello friends.
Lately, I've been interested in the magickal properties of honeysuckle and how to make use of them in my works.
However, all of my attempts to capture the scent of this wonderful plant habe failed, so now I am trying to recreate it's fragrance using etherial oils.

Does anyone have an recipe or at least a suggestion for this? It's hard to judge based only on smell.


Blessings,
Loric.

Yes, but it isn't available anywhere.
It's a cultural thing, I guess, honeysuckle does never appear in German culture and is widely ignored here.

Perhaps it is possible to infuse a neutral base oil with fresh blossoms to catch their scent? Does anyone have experience with this?

Why not make your own? While I would not call this essential oil, it is definitely a viable method to make honeysuckle scented oil:

Making honeysuckle essential oil would be similar to making rose water, and distilling the water from it until all that remains is the honeysuckle's own oils. It requires a massive amount of blossoms to extract pure essential oils.
