“Subatomic particles are apparently dematerialized and rematerialized quite routinely … some of them may actually be in two places at once. Their freedom from the normal limits of the space-time continuum is believed to be the result of a strange electricity, an intelligence, creative, playful and unpredictable interaction between entities with opposite charges in motion “.
“When asked about how they can walk through flames without burning themselves, the ‘primitives’ have conveyed to anthropologists that they raise the vibratory level of their flesh to match that of fire. Their vibrational frequency to match that of another dimension, thus disappearing from our habitual universe and appearing in the other: dematerialization. “
It started for me in 1984, when the book Jitterbug Perfume was first published. I remember falling in love with Tom Robbins writing and soon devoured most of his books. Honestly, I had forgotten the story for many years, but late last summer a very dear friend, my twin, with whom I have practiced lucid dreaming and time travel, (which is a very different story) called me and said : Did you read Jitterbug Perfume lately? “
I said “No, I haven’t read it for years and years.”
He replied, “Take the book and read it, it’s our story.”
So I bought the book, packed it in my suitcase, and set off for Santa Fe to study with one of the world’s leading essential oil distillers.
On the first day of the workshop, the distiller said, “If you never read another book on essential oils, the only book you have to read is Jitterbug Perfume.”
You may be thinking, as I am, that this is a sign, because sitting in my backpack was the book, longing for my attention.
I never had a chance to read it on that trip, but I got home and was immediately absorbed by the book. The more I read, the more I was moved, ordered, encouraged and compelled to begin a search to make this aromatic elixir.
I walked into Farmer and the Cook, our local farm-to-table restaurant and organic food store, where I looked up the farmer, Steve Sprinkel, and found him synchronously in his office.
“Steve,” I said, “I need beet pollen.” (Beet pollen is one of the main ingredients in Jitterbug perfume.)
Steve laughed and looked up, “Perfume Jitterbug!”
“Yes,” I replied, “how did you know?”
“I remember the book …” he said “I just planted beets and you can have a couple of rows. They must vernalize to be able to put flowers, so next year you will have pollen.”
So I went out to the farm and began communing with my beets, eagerly awaiting the next winter and the subsequent spring and the arrival of the beet blossoms. I spent many afternoons watching those beets grow and finally, in mid-March, the first flowers were set. I went out one day and the scent of beet blossoms lingered on the warm spring day.
Now for those of you who haven’t experienced the smell of beet blossoms, it’s not a particularly pleasant smell, but rather a musky, goat-like smell that occasionally gave off the smell of dirty old socks. Charming you say, no, not charming, but very earthy, primitive.
The beet flowers taught me to harvest, I was never in charge, they were the teachers all the time. I spent the next 5 months visiting the farm twice a week, spending hours collecting beetroot pollen and flowers to make the legendary Jitterbug Perfume.
If you haven’t read the book, you might consider picking up a copy, it’s a wonderful read, and in it you’ll learn that it’s a book about immortality and time travel, with Jitterbug perfume being the main ingredient in both. adventure.
I was prompted to make this perfume and I contacted Tom Robbins, after finding out his address, and I told him that, as eccentric as he was, I believed with all my heart, that the Jitterbug Perfume was true, it was real and that I was trying to make the perfume, as it was, and now I am even more so, convinced that it was a tool for time travel, an elixir of immortality, and I would love to be able to call the resulting perfume, Jitterbug.
To my delight and surprise, he responded by saying that although the events in the book did not actually happen, it was a true story and that I had his full permission to use the Perfume Jitterbug name if I was successful in my endeavor. . Well, I was successful and something else!
And so, under the darkness of a new moon in August, the first bottle was made. I sent the first bottle to Mr. Robbins, and he was delighted and excited about it, telling me that I have really made him and his book proud!
Jitterbug has given me very specific instructions on how it should be used and I have obeyed all of their requests. The experiences that people are having continue to make me shake my head in utter wonder and awe.
It is definitely amrita for the olfactory system and an elixir of immortality. I will be reporting more as time goes on, but one thing Jitterbug has told me is that it will not be offered commercially, and it is my duty to prepare people to experience the perfume. Jitterbug seems to have power and presence and knows exactly what each person needs and gets them where they need to go! I was amazed at the power of this magical elixir!
I am the humble servant of Jitterbug Perfume and I am honored to be!
