    So I have recently purchased some wonderful Persian saffron from Alhashmi and have just as recently received a nice amount of Mysore Sandalwood oil.
    My project is to macerate the two. I shall start with a 3ml bottle to see how this progresses. The saffron has very bright burgundy colour so I shall be interested to see how it develops.
    Am not quite sure how long it shall take the saffron to diffuse into the sandalwood...but I shall monitor it...

    I have been out walking last night for a few hours, contemplating the world and turning my new saffron/Mysore mix.
    And again this morning, same again. I believe the saffron has already begun to integrate with the Mysore after less then 24 hours. The scent has remained very much the same, namely Sandalwood...

    Nice! You wont notice much change in colour, so keep an eye on the scent regularly.

    Be careful wearing it on your shirt or near sleeves. Saffron in sandal smells quite light even after months, but if this maceration oil is used to create a blend with some Hindi Oud and rose, the result is awesome.

    Absolutely. Excellent advice. Be careful not to put it on clothing, as saffron oils can stain.

    And you too respected @Rai Munir. Its been a while! How have you been?

    Thank you.
    I am blessed that my oils are the most expensive part of me that I wear.....clothes cover my modesty only.
