The essence of a canyon

I took stone from the canyon and ground it to powder. The sage is broken to small pieces and placed into my blender, reduced to fragments. Tomorrow I will macerate the two in a solvent and set up a reflux tower to pull the essence from them.

    As I sit here in feet of snow waiting for the incoming lake effect blizzard I am wishing you could bottle essence of canyon because it is probably warm and fragrant… I am already tired of being cold, especially since my classroom had no heat today… grrrrr. Please let us know how this turns out,

    OK… we need a bit more info here. I understand about the sage, but what kind of “essence” do you expect to get from stone? Have you lost your head? … oh, I see you have. LOL. Perhaps you can add a bit of walnut oil to the mix and make some red paint for the kings pool of blood.
