Meadowfoam seed oil (Limnanthes alba): Meadowfoam seed oil is a waxy oil, similar to Jojoba. It is non-comodogenic (doesn't block pores), contains over 98% long chain fatty acids, making it extremely stable and highly resistant to oxidation and heat, though it may solidify a bit in cold conditions.
It's non-greasy texture, helps lock in moisture and prevent trans-epidermal water loss, helping your skin form a barrier to lock in moisture and deliver nutrients deep into your epidermis. It helps bind fragrance and keep it stable, making it excellent for aromatherapy applications, like Perfume Poems.

Rice Bran oil (Oryza sativa): Prized by Japanese women for centuries for it's hydrating and brightening benefits, rice bran oil (RBO) is also a skin softening superstar. RBO contains some phytochemicals (plant chemicals) such as tocotrienols, tocopherols, phytosterols, polyphenols, squalene and powerful anti-oxidant gamma oryzanol, that support skin's health.
The high level of Vitamins E and B, omega 9 and a rich array of fatty acids, beta-carotene, CoQ10 and lycopene, help shield the skin from environmental and internal stressors. It is not winterized, meaning, it may get cloudy in cold temperatures. If this happens, simply heat it gently in hot water till cloudiness disappears.
Lavender (Lavandula officinalis): PMS often causes sleeping problems like insomnia and excessive daytime sleepiness, tiredness and/ drowsiness. It can cause some women to sleep much more than normal (source).
Sleep difficulties are not only caused by changing hormones like increased progestin, decreased estrogen and possible effects on melatonin (the sleep hormone), but the rate at which women's hormones fluctuate, which may also affect the various and distinct sleep experiences women have before, during and after their period.

Anxiety around nighttime accidents due to heavy menstrual bleeding, and waking up in the middle of the night to deal with this, can alter REM sleep and make women wake up, feeling less well rested. (source)
Studies show that lavender increases slow-wave sleep, which is instrumental for slowing heartbeat and relaxing muscles.(source) Grown in various geographical climates, the scent can differ from camphoraceous to heady floral, however, it's effects are usually calming and soothing. Studies have shown it's properties can help reduce stress, induce sleep and also improve daytime wakefulness, significantly. (source). Enjoy it's familiar and beautiful scent in this perfume poem.
