All the countries of the world provide essential oils, making aromatherapy a truly global therapy. The purest essential oils come from carefully
cultivated and wild grown plants found in a variety of climatic and geographic regions throughout the world.

How many pounds of plant material do you think it takes to make one pound of essential oil?
Here is an example it takes 50 pounds of Eucalyptus oil, 150 pounds of Lavender oil, 500 pounds of Rosemary oil, 1,000 pounds of Jasmine oil
and over 2,000 pounds of Rose oil. In fact the price of essential oil is directly related to the amount of plant material needed for

Extraction Methods:
To extract essential oils in the most effective manner, while preserving their therapeutic benefits they are either distilled or expressed.

Pure essential oils are most commonly extracted from plants through the process of steam distillation. In this process, steam is introduced into
a distillation chamber which contains the plant material. The steam breaks down the plant tissue, causing it to release its essential oil in a
vaporized form. The vaporized essences, along with the steam and other substances, pass into a pipe through cooling tanks. The vapors return to
liquid form and are separated from the water and captured as pure essential plant oil.

Expression, also know as cold pressing, is done exclusively with citrus oils. Into this method, the oil containing out layer of the fruit is
pressed and filtered to yield pure essential oil.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries had its humble beginnings as an idea of a few artisans and craftsmen who enjoy performing with live steel fighting. As well as a patchwork quilt tent canvas. Most had prior military experience hence the name.


Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries.


Vendertainers that brought many things to a show and are know for helping out where ever they can.

As well as being a place where the older hand made items could be found made by them and enjoyed by all.

We expanded over the years to become well known at what we do. Now we represent over 100 artisans and craftsman that are well known in their venues and some just starting out. Some of their works have been premiered in TV, stage and movies on a regular basis.

Specializing in Medieval, Goth , Stage Film, BDFSM and Practitioner.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries a Dept of, Ask For IT was started by artists and former military veterans, and sword fighters, representing over 100 artisans, one who made his living traveling from fair to festival vending medieval wares. The majority of his customers are re-enactors, SCAdians and the like, looking to build their kit with period clothing, feast gear, adornments, etc.

Likewise, it is typical for these history-lovers to peruse the tent (aka mobile store front) and, upon finding something that pleases the eye, ask "Is this period?"

A deceitful query!! This is not a yes or no question. One must have a damn good understanding of European history (at least) from the fall of Rome to the mid-1600's to properly answer. Taking into account, also, the culture in which the querent is dressed is vitally important. You see, though it may be well within medieval period, it would be strange to see a Viking wearing a Caftan...or is it?

After a festival's time of answering weighty questions such as these, I'd sleep like a log! Only a mad man could possibly remember the place and time for each piece of kitchen ware, weaponry, cloth, and chain within a span of 1,000 years!! Surely there must be an easier way, a place where he could post all this knowledge...

Traveling Within The World is meant to be such a place. A place for all of these artists to keep in touch and directly interact with their fellow geeks and re-enactment hobbyists, their clientele.
