RENDER THE VEIL - RITUAL COMPOUNDS FOR THE SAMHAIN SEASON - HALLOWS 2016


~ CHAPTERS ONE & TWO ~


Samhain is not just Halloween, costumes and candy. Samhain is the ancient Celtic celebration of the end of the harvest cycle of the growing season; bonfires dotted the landscape and the ancestors were honored. This is the season of death and of spirits, of magic and mystery. It is said that the veil that exists between the world of the dead and the living is at its thinnest during this dark season so this Hallows I have channeled 13 dark potions that can be used ritually as well as fragrantly. Empowered on September's rare Black Moon, these oils are imbued with depth, power and intensity and a drop of my handmade black moonstone gem essence! Some of the most potent work I've done in some time!


We here at Conjure Oils have slowly been preparing this collection for a year! We're offering perfume grade ritual oils (that can be used as both or either, as all Conjure Oils can be used.) Sacred Sprays for all sorts of spiritual needs and Bewitchment Balms for all your witchy wiles, dark and light.

Litanies of Satan

Charles Baudelaire

Les Fleurs du Mal

Wisest of Angels, whom your fate betrays,
And, fairest of them all, deprives of praise,

Satan have pity on my long despair!

O Prince of exiles, who have suffered wrong,
Yet, vanquished, rise from every fall more strong,

Satan have pity on my long despair!

All-knowing lord of subterranean things,
Who remedy our human sufferings,

Satan have pity on my long despair!

To lepers and lost beggars full of lice,
You teach, through love, the taste of Paradise.

Satan have pity on my long despair!

You who on Death, your old and sturdy wife,
Engendered Hope — sweet folly of this life —

Satan have pity on my long despair!

You give to the doomed man that calm, unbaffled
Gaze that rebukes the mob around the scaffold,

Satan have pity on my long despair!

You know in what closed corners of the earth
A jealous God has hidden gems of worth.

Satan have pity on my long despair!

You know the deepest arsenals, where slumber
The breeds of buried metals without number.

Satan have pity on my long despair!

You whose huge hand has hidden the abyss
From sleepwalkers that skirt the precipice,

Satan have pity on my long despair!

You who give suppleness to drunkards' bones
When trampled down by horses on the stones,

Satan have pity on my long despair!

You who, to make his sufferings the lighter,
Taught man to mix the sulphur with the nitre,

Satan have pity on my long despair!

You fix your mask, accomplice full of guile,
On rich men's foreheads, pitiless and vile.

Satan have pity on my long despair!

You who fill the hearts and eyes of whores
With love of trifles and the cult of sores,

Satan have pity on my long despair!

The exile's staff, inventor's lamp, caresser
Of hanged men, and of plotters the confessor,

Satan have pity on my long despair!

Step-father of all those who, robbed of pardon,
God drove in anger out of Eden's garden

Satan have pity on my long despair!

Prayer

Praise to you, Satan! in the heights you lit,
And also in the deeps where now you sit,
Vanquished, in Hell, and dream in hushed defiance
O that my soul, beneath the Tree of Science
Might rest near you, while shadowing your brows,
It spreads a second Temple with its boughs.

— Translated by Roy Campbell, Poems of Baudelaire (New York: Pantheon Books, 1952)

The corrupted blood of ancient dragons is infused with patchouli black. The midnight musk petals from les Fleurs du Mal are caramelized cauldron bound with black opium, black fig and dark muscavadao sugar. Defiled deeply by the scent of smoke of crimson red leaves and Scandinavian churches ablaze, filling the crisp autumn air with sweet despair. Nema!



SPIRITS WHO TRAVERSE BETWEEN THE WORLDS



These are the spirits of life and death. They are psychopomps that travel freely between the veil of the dead and the living. Some are gentle and kind, others are intense and terrifying. These spirits are closer to us at Samhain, throughout the dark months and then again at Beltaine when the veil is thin once more.


AYAO

Ayao is the Yoruban Orisha of the wind. She is the eye of the storm and sister to the mighty Oya, Ayao wields the power of witchcraft and magical knowledge. Her companion is the snake and her weapon is the crossbow. Find her in the forest where the leaves swirl like a cyclone.

A whirling cyclone of crisp fall leaves fills the air coupled with slithering wisps of wood smoke, tonka bean and black plum.
CAER IBORMEITH

Caer Ibormeith, bride of Angus Mac Og, the Irish Lord of Love is a shape shifter, swan and beautiful woman. She is also a goddess of death, as her name means yew berry, the toxic fruit from the yew tree. Offer her mead on Samhain to celebrate the beauty of love and the agony of death.

The joy and pain of true love and inevitable death: yew berry accord infused black patchouli, swan feather soft vanilla musk, red amber and stout clove. 


CHARON

Charon is the infamous ferryman that grants passage to Hades across the river Styx. Cantankerous and cold, he only accepts passengers with proper funeral rites that have the fare of a coin to pay him. If you don't you're doomed to find your own perilous way to Hades. Good luck. Offer him coins for payment at the cemetery gates.


An ancient memory of Tunisian opium, precious oudh, aged tobacco and chthonic rhus khus.


HEKATE'S TORCH

She holds the keys to all domains, passing freely between the realms of the dead and the living. She is the beloved Queen of the Witches, waiting at the crossroads with her beloved dog. She is mistress of the poison path cultivating plants that can be used to cure, kill or stir the souls of the witches that venerate her. Invoke her on the dark moon at the crossroads at midnight, walk away and don't look back.


Often depicted with two torches that allow her safe passage between the worlds, allow Hekate's Torch to guide you along your path. A light in the darkness: earthen patchouli, apotropaic clove, spiritually uplifting frankincense, Persephone's pomegranate and illuminated bergamot.


KING OF TERRORS

He's the man who comes and does the job with no illusions - this is death hit man style! The crowned, weapon wielding skeleton can appear as the Grim Reaper or Holy Death and his haunting images is on many tombstones and churches, reminding the viewer Memento Mori! Call his frightening visage with his symbols of scythe, spear and arrow.

The musty shadows of the cemetery, haunted loam and moss, metal sting and arterial spray.


LA MADAMA

If you think about what Aunt Jemima looks like you'll have a pretty good idea of La Madama's appearance. Not a singular spirit, per se, but a vast network of spirits who oftentimes are the spirits of deceased Lucumi priestesses from Cuba and Puerto Rico. Everyone who has their own unique Madama can tell you her name and how she lived her life. This information is gleaned via spiritual masses, quiet reflection and other spiritual work. She is a teacher and mentor spirit who favors diviners, spiritual workers, healers, mediums and the like. A powerful partner for magic, cleansings and protection. Offer her flowers and cigars while staring into her eyes in a candlelit room to get her to speak her secrets to you.

Offerings of warm vanilla infused bourbon, juicy mangoes, star jasmine blossoms, cigar smoke and a pinch of blessed salt.


LES MORTS

Les Morts is what those in the Voudoun tradition call The Dead. The belief in the Voudon religion is when someone passes away they really don't die, but go to a spiritual land of their blood and spiritual ancestors called Ginen and are never really far from their living loved ones. Les Morts are spirits to consult with when you have questions about the afterlife, a fear of death or if you would like to have an elevated conversation, as they tend to wax philosophical. Speak to them through scrying with water or mirrors. Gaze in candlelit basins of water to meet with them on the other side.

Still waters, crystal musk, beeswax candles, water lilies, white amber and sweet offerings of coffee and beignets.

LIBITINA

Lady Death, Holy Death. She is the goddess of decay, of death, corpses and funerals. Her Roman temples were where grieving loved ones would report deaths or make funeral arrangements. It is said she appears shrouded in a black winged robe with an obscured face. She will accept offerings of coins and cemetery cleaning and upkeep.

A wistful and somber meditation on eternity: smoked amber, dragon's blood, aged black patchouli, rose hips, cypress, white myrrh and black storax.


SIMBI

Simbi is the Vodoun snake spirit that originated in the Congo. It is the greatest of all magicians and is the guardian of magicians and occultists. He is also a master healer and diagnostician. Being a freshwater serpent, Simbi loves water, moisture, rain and waterfalls. He is in charge of flow - water, electricity, air currents and therefore manages the energetic exchange involved with moments of sacred possession. Simbi also protects electrical devices such as computers and televisions. Keep an image of a snake on your electronics and offer Simbi some water and rum from time to time to keep him moist and happy to assist.

African green musk and violets, falling water, the spark of ozone and lightning struck sandalwood.

THANATOS & LETHE

Thanatos is lord of the peaceful death who guides the dead over to his sister, the river Lethe. The waters of Lethe have amnesiac properties and help the dead forget their former lives and attachments. There is no greater pair to petition for a peaceful death, to forget past pains and torments or to instill deep peace. Offer Thanatos black candles, poppies, snakes and butterfly images. Petition Lethe during the dark of night, preferably by a stream or a river.

Black opium, poppy flower, kush, vanilla flower, cannabis accord, blue lotus attar, aged patchouli and mimosa.

VALKYRIE

Norse goddesses of varying tasks: magic, life, battle and death. They ferry the dead warriors to Valhalla or Freya's hall, where they host the fallen. In the beginning they were the daughters of Odin and Herta but over time their numbers grew as it opened up to include the deified priestesses of Odin. Some say they also may be deified shamans with erotic leanings who will fight and protect their human lovers. See them in the swans and crows in the sky with offerings of mead

Honey mead from the halls of Valhalla, the smoke of oak and juniper fires from the battlefield and the magnificent golden musk of eternal glory.


WANYUDO

Manifesting as a disembodied head at the hub of a flaming ox-cart wheel, Wanyudo is a yokai that patrols the line between the living and the dead with violent precision. It is said that a raging fever is produced just by getting a glimpse of Wanyudo. Woe be to the person Wanyudo catches peeking at him as he will roll over them with his wheel ablaze, scorching them to nothing but a crisp shadow on the road! He has also been known to cart gawkers straight to Hell.

An infernal and damned philtre of ginger root, red patchouli, tonka bean, cinnamon sticks and burnt marshmallow.




WASHERS AT THE FORD

Hailing from the British Isles, the Washers at the Ford are the spirits of women in varying degrees of haggardness with ghostly pale skin and disheveled hair. They crouch at the ford of the river where they wail and keen as they furiously launder any number of gristly and bloody items in the murky water: from cloth to armor to severed limbs and heads! In mourning, she continues to cry and shriek as she washes and if she happens to lock eyes with you as you innocently stroll by, it is your impending death that she is mourning! The Washers are not bringers of death as one might assume, but ancient harbingers. It is said when people of great status are to die the Washer presented will not be the typical washer woman, but a goddess such as Badbh or the Morrigan and make herself available for many to see so the cold shiver of a death omen will travel long and far.

A Victorian mourning fougere: bog moss, heather, pitcher plant, water poppy and emerald ferns under a slate gray sky that threatens torrential rain.

STARMAN: A DAVID BOWIE MIXTAPE MEMORIAL COSMIC FRAGRANCE COLLECTION


http://conjureoils.com/conjure%20ltd.htm

31 January 2016

STARMAN: A DAVID BOWIE MIXTAPE - IN MEMORIAM 1947 - 2016

http://conjureoils.com/conjure%20ltd.htm





STARMAN: A DAVID BOWIE MIXTAPE - IN MEMORIAM 1947 - 2016
5ml Brown Apothecary Bottle - $25


PROCEEDS WILL BE DONATED: Proceeds after expenses will be given as a memorial donation in the name of David Bowie to the American Liver Foundation. This collection is truly a gift from one fan to another, so I feel it is best to donate any profit to the cause of liver cancer research.
  THE GRIEF IS OVERWHELMING. The morning of January 11th the world stood still. I dropped my daughter Lucy off at kindergarten when I heard it on NPR - David Bowie, dead at 69 from a long battle with liver cancer. I couldn't believe it! It was like something sucked all the air out of the car. Didn't he just have a birthday and release an album? I rode home, dripping tears and denial so thick it was nearly impossible to see. For the rest of that day and for several after all of my friends - Facebook and otherwise - were overt in their mourning. Endless outpourings of disbelief and exhalations of what David had meant to them. How he was so sacred because he validated the freak, the androgynous, the gay, the glamour, the extraterrestrial, the smooth and sexy, the Goblin King in us all.

David Bowie never announced his illness, so to us his death was seemingly spontaneous. But he knew for 18 months and spent that time writing the album Blackstar which is full of allusions to his death and the afterlife. In it we find a touching, well crafted goodbye that could only be achieved by meticulous planning. David died like he lived - a consummate artist that went out with style and grace.
He will be sorely missed on the earthly plane, but his spirit will be ever available to us. Light candles for David, lift them high and give his spirit illumination and elevation.

"This way or no way
You know, I’ll be free
Just like that bluebird
Now ain’t that just like me"
-Lazarus, Blackstar, David Bowie

A NOTE ABOUT THE CREATION AND PROCESS OF THESE OILS: These fragrances were made with heart and magick, with the intentions of love, expansion and healing in mind, using my knowledge of perfumery, alchemy, astrology and aromatherapy. As spirit would have it, I discovered that each song's scent had a specific planetary correspondence and particular energetic current. That's when I realized these perfumes were going to transcend perfume and become what Conjure Oils is truly about - magickal and ritual oils that are blended as fine perfume. All 10 planets were crafted and infused into the perfume oil. I have blended these perfumes with the most sacred ingredients and intentions: healing, soul nourishment, spirit connection, peace, prosperity as well as otherworldly, extraterrestrial elements, glamour magick, sacred sexuality and beautiful gender queer energy. Open you heart, mind and spirit and use these scents with prayer and intention, or as always, you can slather on their seductively delicious scents!

REGARDING INGREDIENTS: Please note that even though the flower essences describe a plant name, they do not impart a fragrance into the perfume. They are purely an energetic essence used by the drop.


COST AND DONATIONS: The majority of the components are natural essential oils, as they contain the most energy and are connected to the natural world. I used the finest oils in my possession and because of this, these blends should retail for about $45/5ml, since all the proceeds of this collection will be donated to the American Liver Foundation in his name, we will charge $25/5ml but will accept donations at madv at conjureoils dot com.
Love and Bliss Eternal,

Androgyny
Uranus Unguent

David was legendary for is ability to seamlessly slip between the gender binary. While many in the mainstream at the time found it absolutely abhorrent and yet another harbinger of the breakdown of society, the rest us fabulous folk fount it to be a life line, one that validated our freak selves and gave us permission to slide back and forth just the same.

Ruled by the planet of innovation and originality, the oils used in this perfume are ruled by Uranus and can be worn by any gender to invoke creative genius and sexual ambiguity with a secret formula that beautifully invigorates the scents of the darkness of earth and the bright musk of spring florals. Calla Lily flower essence helps the wounding from gender bias and the pain of discrimination.

Anisocoria
Chiron

Anisocoria is the medical term for David’s condition – one pupil permanently dilated. The disorder began when he was 15 and got in a scrap with a close friend of his over a girl. This left him with a look that bordered on mystical or otherworldly, fitting seamlessly with his man who fell to earth persona.

Chiron is the asteroid as well as a deity that is known as the Centaur. As a celestial body, it is Chiron that finds a place when you're born, like any planet is supposed to do. As a deity Chiron deals with all aspects of health and disease and how they affect our spiritual path. Chiron himself represents the wounded healer. Like Bowie performing in spite of his eye, it healed those who came to see him. And like Chiron, Bowie found strength through adversity, as does this fragrance. Dried tobacco, willow, Parma violet, Egyptian Sandalwood, aged oak, blood cedar, marionberry and persimmon. Self Heal flower essence connects the body to the spirit of healing and gives you the motivation for healing the self.

Long Live the Goblin King
Ceres

In 1986, David Bowie played Jareth, the Goblin King in the film Labyrinth who tormented young Sarah as she struggled through the twists and turns to get Toby, the little brother who she wished away to the Goblin King herself. Besides  John Blaylock in The Hunger, Jareth is one of Bowie’s most cherished, beloved and iconic roles.

“Through dangers untold and hardships unnumbered I have fought my way here to the castle beyond the Goblin City to take back the child you have stolen, for my will is as strong as yours and my kingdom as great. You have no power over me!”
With the Passing of Bowie, we must also acknowledge the passing of Jareth, the Goblin King. The Goblin King is dead! Long live the Goblin King!

The asteroid Ceres is the nurturer. And like the Goblin King, who wanted to be a nurturer, whether it was to turn Toby into one of the goblin minions he "cares" for, or longing for the love of Sarah, whom he would be a slave for. At the center of the twisted heart of the Goblin King was the most impossible thing: true love. Notes of raw lust and devotion: red patchouli, aged tonka absolute infused with vanilla resin. ruh gulab, crimson opium, dazzling pomegranate and commanding calamus. Mugwort flower essence is remarkable for allowing the psychic and the dream world unite in real life and to maintain a multidimensional consciousness, all needed to enter realms such as Labyrinth - and to find your way home. If you want to return...

Major Tom
Juno

Mentioned in three Bowie songs, namely  Space Oddity as the astronaut commander of the capsule that gets lost in space, as well as Ashes to Ashes where Major Tom falls from the heavens, medicating himself and reaching an all time low. Major Tom has become somewhat of an entity in his own right and can be found in other places such as Peter Schilling’s Major Tom (Coming Home).

The asteroid Juno represents relationships, true love and beauty, even diplomacy. It's no accident we hear "Tell my wife I love her very much!" "She knows!" Major Tom has been formulated to uplift sadness, fill the hole within so there's no need for self medication. Allow it to engulf you in self love. Triumphant and glorious oils of love and success: cinnamon, ginger absolute, clove bud, mulberry, African violet, Dragon's Blood, Adriatic fig, sweet orange, plum, tonka bean and aged vanilla with drops of Joshua Tree flower essence that release karma that is passed down through the family line allowing freedom from habits that hold you down, whether karmically influenced or not.

Ziggy Stardust
Pallas Athena

Libertine hedonist, androgynous Starman, Martian Messiah, David completely immersed himself in the character and the lifestyle of this man who fell to earth. He played with his band The Spiders from Mars iconic songs such as Ziggy Stardust, Moonage Daydream, Suffragette City and Lady Stardust. His style was legendary: half sci-fi rock and part Kabuki, blatantly bisexual and glittering glamorous

Pallas Athena is fitting as our final asteroid. Representing creativity and intellect, I think it is a fitting conclusion to this collection. Let this fragrance enhance the genius and the creative mind within yourself: Exotic benzoin is expertly blended with lily of the valley, bergamot, lavender, papyrus, lovely linden and lemongrass. The flower essence Downy Avens is added as it integrates intelligence with heart and mind.

THINGS THAT GO BUMP IN THE NIGHT: FRIGHTENING FOLKLORE - HALLOWS 2015
5ml Brown Apothecary Bottle - $20
THE BANSHEES' KEEN
Ireland

Closely associated with death, Banshees (traditional spelling, Bean Sidhe, which means Women of the Fairy Mound) are ancient faeries that appear in many ghostly forms. From flawlessly beautiful women draped in diaphanous white flowing robes with glowing, pearlescent skin framed by loose crimson hair dancing about their visage and shoulders to horrific headless forms nude from neck to waist! The blood-curding wail that has become the trademark of the Banshee is not the cause of death as many mistakenly believe, but only harbinger of imminent doom; usually of a close family member, as clans seem to retain specific, familial Banshees throughout the generations. When the Celtic mourning keen of the Banshee is heard, dread fills the hearts of those who bear witness to her humbling power as her visit surely portends the passing of a loved one to the other side.

Damp loam from the faery mound, Irish moss, shrill eucalyptus gum and an offering of Irish whiskey.
BLACK ANNIS
England

Sometimes seen as a merger of black cat and demon or as a blue faced hag with claws and horrible teeth, Black Annis lives on the Dane Hills near Leicester, England and is blamed for any missing children or animals in the area. She is said to roam the land after dark stealing babies from their cribs and capturing children and small farm animals who have strayed into her realm. She flays her victims alive, scatters their bones and drapes the skins over the old oak tree near her cave, the Bower.
Yet another instance of a once beloved and powerful goddess reduced to a gruesome two dimensional villain in a children's cautionary tale! May this fragrance serve as an offering to restore Black Annis to her ancient glory.
Rich and resplendent dark pepper essence, blackened tonka resin, ruh khus, crimson cananga and motia attar.
BLOODY MARY
England

Often dismissed as an urban legend intended to scare teenage girls at slumber parties out of their minds at the stroke of midnight, the spirit of Bloody Mary may have actual historical authenticity linked to it! During her truncated reign, Mary Tudor, the Queen of England from 1553 to 1558, burned over three hundred people at the stake during her brief reign, earning her the moniker 'Bloody Mary'. According to history books, Mary had multiple miscarriages and legend has it that they were caused by people who didn't want her to have an heir or continue her lineage. If this is true, they were indeed successful. She is paired with the Bloody Mary ritual through wording. Some variations on the Bloody Mary chant are "Bloody Mary, I killed your baby" or "Bloody Mary, where is your baby?". All intended on exploiting the mourning spirit's grief. Folklorist Alan Dundes' Freudian interpretation of the ritual is that it is symbolic of menarche and menstruation. Teenage girl + bathroom + the sudden appearance of blood + total instant freak out. You do the math!
A symbolic perfumed prayer to the spirit grief and loss: Blood red gulab attar in full bloom, shy English violet, the passion of clove infused with red sandalwood, red blood musk and the innocence of the gift of crocus in the form of saffron threads all anchored in earthy russet patchouli saturated black honey.
DEVIL'S DANDY DOGS
Southwest England

A variation on the Wild Hunt - a phenomenon witnessed the world over. On stormy nights, usually on the liminal holidays of the Earth such as All Hallows and May Day, or the days that mark the turning of the seasons such as Midsummer or Yuletide, a procession of spirits can be seen parading at night under the full moon. In Hawaii they are known as Night Marchers, and Hyakki Yako in Japan. Great Gods are said to sometimes lead the revelry; Shiva, Dionysis and Freya. The Devil's Dandy Dogs are a Christianized take on the Wild Hunt - a pack of red eyed, fire-breathing and feral hounds are lead through the foggy moonlit English moors at midnight lead by none other than the Adversary himself - Satan!

Rain weathered grey leather reins, baked clay earth, petrichor, deliciously decomposing autumn leaves, silver vanilla sugar drenched with pitch black tobacco absolute and the fragrant flaming red glow of brimstone obscured by gleaming fog, heavy with the magic of a million spells cast in the full moon's light.
THE GRIEF OF LA LLORONA
Mexico
Seen roaming through the lonely night dressed in stark white with her face shrouded by a matching veil, La Llorona mortifies all that have the misfortune of coming across her with her terrible cries. Her name itself means 'The Wailing Woman' or 'The Weeping Woman'. Like Black Annis and Bloody Mary she is now an urban legend, however, again like the former, there is so much more to her history. There have been sightings of La Llorona since the 1500's wandering the streets of the town that would eventually become Mexico City lamenting over the loss of her children and then disappearing into the nearby river.
The actual legend of La Llorona is as tragically heartbreaking as it is terrifying. HERE is a particularly thorough telling.
She shares characteristics with the Banshee and the Mothman as a harbinger (not cause) of death and to warn others of impending danger and disaster. La Llorona, who was probably a demonized version of the ancient goddess Cihuac├│atl: the goddess of snakes and midwifery, is once again being restored to her goddess status. Young Latina mothers petition her, particularly those in situations of desperation.
Ofrenda para Cihuac├│atl: Spiced tobacco, black copal, cempazuchil blossoms, palo santo, guaiac wood and cacao nibs soaked with tequila, drizzled with blue agave syrup and dusted with Ceylon cinnamon powder.
KUNEKUNE YOKAI
Japan

Similar to the Slenderman, Kunekune is a fictitious being made up on Japanese websites around 2003 and is considered to be a modern yokai, or ghost. On hot summer days in the afternoon it is said to materialize. It has the appearance of a tall, thin humanoid figure made of silk or fabric. Its appendages are constantly moving, in fact Kunekune is translated to "wiggle" or "to meander". It is safe to see this yokai from a distance and depending on the location, it takes on different colors; in the countryside and over the ocean, it appears to be ghostly white and tar black in the city. Being too close to the Kunekune causes madness, and to touch it leads to certain death.

This powerful fragrance is based on a rare and ancient Japanese incense recipe I was once gifted long ago by a mysterious Japanese gentleman I met in a bookstore when I was in my early 20s. It is purported to clean the environment from malefic spirits, thus opening the way for blessings from ancestors, deities and the Buddha, The solid incense itself contains several components - many of them are hard to obtain and are quite costly. I have made this perfumed interpretation: A drop of star anise, black sandalwood, agarwood, red benzoin, black cherry and cinnamon bark.

THE GREY LADY
United Kingdom
Grey Ladies are called thusly because they have a gloaming grey ghostly pallor, not so much because of her clothing (like in the case of the White and Green Ladies). There are multiple Grey Ladies that haunt various places throughout the UK. Often, these female spirits have suffered a violent death, in the name of love (a single stab wound to the chest by a certain baron, for example), or they simply wasted away from longing. They often appear with a predictable regularity forever ever searching for their loved ones.
Gray amber, black musk, Egyptian sandalwood, yuzu, coconut husk, Night Queen, Earl Gray and red raspberry raw honey.

GLAISTIG, THE GREEN LADY
Scotland
Green Lady describes several different types of supernatural beings who have little in common save for the deep emerald green dresses worn by the spirits themselves. They are ghosts who haunt ancient castles and dark moors, ruins and lonely, barren areas. Some consider them to be demons. Glaistig is a type of Green Lady. Some say she is a mortal woman turned into a fairy, or a true Highland Fairy. Glaistigs are very helpful on farms and are caretakers of the herds of livestock. They even look out for the children of the farmers as they tend to the animals. However, they are not always benevolent - they have been known to be harbingers of death as well.
Linden vert, balsamic amber, emerald moss, spruce sap and davana.

ERZEBET BATHORY, LADY IN WHITE
Slavic
Some are ghosts, some are apparitions, some are spirits, but they all wear long flowing white ghostly gowns. The sometimes appear as amorphous white translucent humanoid forms that transform into different horrifying shapes. They are quite beautiful and the white they wear is usually a wedding dress as they have most likely died on their wedding day from a violent attack from their intended, or fathers who opposed the marriage. Some just died of a broken heart. They can walk through the walls of the places they haunt. They are not harmful, but like the other Ladies, they can be harbingers of death as well.
In Slavic mythology, White Ladies are usually the result of women who have committed suicide, died in prison or who were violently murdered. They often tend to linger in the same place, often the place they died. Countess Erzebet Bathory is a great example of a White Lady. At the time of her trial, she was reported to have killed up to 650 women, allegedly bathing in the blood of virgin girls to retain her youthful beauty. Countess Bathory died while imprisoned where it is said her spirit still lingers. Paranormal investigators have searched for evidence that will lead to the existence of the tormented spirit of Countess Erzebet Bathory. To this day, evidence has remained inconclusive.
Damascus rose resin, smoked patchouli, aged vanilla tar.
MACHINE ELVES
Subconscious and Psychic Realms
Machine Elves (also known as Fractal Elves or Self-Transforming Elf Machines) is a term coined by the late ethnobotanist, writer and philosopher Terence McKenna to describe the entities that are often reported by individuals using the ethenogenic compound DMT, also known as the God Molecule. These creatures, existing on the Astral Plane, seem to take advantage of a person's DMT experience to introduce themselves and to interact with the person using the substance. They appear as small beings composed of iridescent rainbow fractals that have the ability to enter and exit the person's spiritual body and consciousness at will. The purpose of the Machine Elves seems to make sense out of all the metaphysical and spiritual information that is being presented to a person while interacting with DMT by participating in a ayahuasca ceremony or imbibing DMT containing plants such as Reed Canary Grass. While this fragrance does contain plants that have been known to contain DMT and other alkaloids, it is sold as a perfume and a curio only. Please use it as fragrance ONLY. If I catch you using it any other way I will kick your ass and not make any other neat tribute scents such as this and you'll be the reason we can't have nice things.

An intoxicant for the initiated. For the rest of us: blue lotus absolute and attar, mimosa, butterfly bush, mugwort, belladonna accord, mandrake, dragon's blood, black myrrh and a pinch of reed canary grass.
TULPA
Tibet
Rooted in ancient Indian and Tibetan Buddhist lore and practice, a Tulpa is a sentient spiritual being (also known as an emanation, hallucination or thought form) imagined into existence by a practitioner using the power of concentrated thought and specialized techniques in meditation. Also known as Servitor Magick, it is a current practice in Western Occultism. Online communities can be found at tulpa dot info and in the subReddit group r/Tulpa. There is quite an extraordinary community of practitioners, known as Tulpamancers, creating Tulpas based on characters found in their favorite television programs - My Little Pony, Friendship is Magic being one of the most popular.

Tibetan frankincense, juniper berry, Indian sandalwood, shredded cinnamon bark, 13 year aged Indian patchouli, blood cedar, clove, rosa moschata and a drop of hina oud attar.
VAMPIRE PUMPKIN
Balkan Peninsula
Originating as a folk legend from the Balkans, it is associated with the Romani people (who seem to have a wonderful connection with vampiric folklore in general!) According to legend, any inanimate object left outside overnight in the light of the full moon can become a vampire! Look out for a drop of blood on the surface of the pumpkin's skin - it's a clear sign that the vampiric transformation had just begun or ended. A scholarly work from Serbia in the 1930's states that according to the Gypsies, two plants that are most prone to vampiric proclivities are the pumpkin and the watermelon. To destroy plants that have turned into the undead, you need to plunge the plants into boiling water, dump the plants and the water onto the ground, sweep the water and fruit away and then burn the broom.
Just when you thought it was safe to make a pumpkin pie...

Sensual chai spiced golden honey folded into pumpkin cream cheese and toasted oak ice cream finished with a dollop of vanilla whipped cream then drizzled with smoked sea salt and lapsong souchong caramel swirl.
Putting the finishing touches on during the full moon eclipse this weekend. Look for it shortly thereafter!

THINGS THAT GO BUMP IN THE NIGHT: FRIGHTENING FOLKLORE - HALLOWS 2015
5ml Brown Apothecary Bottle - $20
ABANDONED MORGUE 2015

Are you here on a dare and wishing you weren't, or is this your new nightly haunt? Either way, this old abandoned morgue has many stories to tell. Tonight we'll listen intently with the lights out!

Ghost of a bonfire, tonka bean, vanilla bourbon, Zanzibar clove, black amber and dark Indonesian patchouli.
DRACULA 2015

One of the legendary monsters from the horror world who deserves a scent of his own!
Mesmerizing notes of corrupted incense, blood musk, clove, Tunisian myrrh and blood red pomegranate.
HANSEL UND GRETEL 2015

A gingerbread house decorated with spice drops and butter cream frosting. The faint smell of a witch's brew filling the enchanted woods and roaring cook stove perfect for roasting a greedy little boy or girl.
KILLER KLOWN 2015
No rest for the wicked, though! The darkness of the Dot Room gives way to a brightly lit funhouse of warped mirrors, garishly painted arches, and flashing strobes. In the smoky chaos, yellow-fanged mad clowns dart, popping out of the peripheries with honking horns, crazed laughter, or bloodied hand tools. Withered corpses bound cruelly into exaggerated poses line the walls, mimicking tight wire acts, animal tamers, and side-show acts, each one more nightmarish than the next.
Spun sugar, vanilla-white greasepaint, molten marshmallow and cherry-syrup blood.
LIGHTLESS MAZE 2015

The creaking doors and cobwebbed foyer of the Manor lead into a dark hallway, one that grows ever more dim the further your group progresses. In time, there is nothing but inky blackness, peppered with nerve-wracking scrapings in the walls and the feeling of spiderwebs brushing your face, or something worse - are those bugs crunching underfoot? Is the floor tilting, or is it just your imagination? There's a faint yelp from the front of the party as the poor soul in the lead finds out about the turn at the end of the hall the hard way.
Soft black patchouli, silky midnight opium, warm black tea and a mysterious trace of obfuscated honey sweetness over shrouded black coconut and black musk.
MEPHISTOPHELES 2015

Faustian devil; popular through the Middle Ages into the Renaissance. He is the spirit of chaos who hates all things beautiful and denies the power of Love. Some say he is a trickster; a smooth talker with a slick tongue and slippery words used to coax and flatter the unwitting.

A Medieval incense burned in dark temples: black amber resin, aloeswood, calamus root, cedar, galbanum, opoponax, golden olibanum, saffron and onchya
MULTIFOLIATE ROSE of DEATH 2015
The eyes are not here
There are no eyes here
In this valley of dying stars
In this hollow valley
This broken jaw of our lost kingdoms
In this last of meeting places
We grope together
And avoid speech
Gathered on this beach of the tumid river
Sightless, unless
The eyes reappear
As the perpetual star
Multifoliate rose
Of death's twilight kingdom
The hope only
Of empty men.
Black, white and crimson roses, stargazer lily, lily of the valley, labdanum, kush, black cherry juice, red patchouli, cardamom and amber cream.
MURDER OF CROWS 2015
Every fall they gather in murderous shrieking clusters blacking out the branches in the oak and apple trees across the street. They caw and cackle in a long-overdue maniacal avian family reunion from Hell.

The softest touch of black leather feathers, oak splinters, acorn, crumbled leaves and baked apples drizzled in brandy all illuminated by creamy vanilla moonlight
OL' SCRATCH 2015

Ol' Scratch is a folksy epithet for Satan originating out of the legends of New England in the days before the Civil War. Some other pet names for the Prince of Darkness (other than Ozzy :D) are Old Nick, Old Bendy and Rodger (as in Jolly).

Thick slices of oven-fresh pumpkin bread slathered with butter and served with fresh cream and a drizzle of treacle
ONI BI 2015
The Demon Fires. According to Japanese folklore, they are the spirits born from the corpses of humans and animals, and are also said to be resentful people that have become fire. They appear as blue flames, often on rainy days in graveyards and in wetlands.
Tunisian amber, red musk, black myrrh, African violet, tonka bean and bergamot reinforced by a supple leather accord.
SCARECROW ALLEY 2015
Reaching the dubious safety of the junkyard gate, the path leading out dumps out not on the safety of a highway, but the tall, crackling rows of a fallow cornfield. After some time spent wandering through the stalks in the darkness, the path opens out into a short road lined on both sides with suspicious looking scarecrows. Weather and decay have rotted away some of the burlap and flannel of their clothing and the straw is mildew blackened. Perhaps it's a trick of the moonlight or the few lanterns hanging on the fence, but there seems to be something awfully realistic about these unmoving effigies. Only moments after you pass, two of the scarecrows fling themselves off their crosses, landing on the path behind you! Thankfully there are brighter lights ahead!
Moonlit corn husk, fresh pumpkin gourd, crispy frost-covered hay.
SUCCUBUS 2015

A demon who takes the form of a gorgeous human female specifically to seduce men. Like the incubus, the succubus may have been a scapegoat for infidelity or stray lust. Either way, the succubus has captured the imagination of men for ages, rousing all flavors of fear and fantasy.

African violet, sugar soaked vanilla, benzoin, coconut milk, triple cream, Egyptian sandalwood musk and red currant.
WOLF MAN 2015
Clap for the Wolf Man! I saw him having a pina colada at Trader Vic's. His hair was perfect. Transform into something wild!
Gypsy incense, deep forests and soft fur.

INFERNA, the Blaze Witch 2015

The fiery and temperamental member of the ensemble, Inferna leaves a trail of glittering ash in her wake.

Myrrh ashes, singed cinnamon bark, smoked ginger and peppered clove-infused vanilla.
ESMERELDA, the Plague Witch 2015

Cheeriest member of the coven, Esmerelda's bubbly personality is in opposition to her power - to spread pestilence and woe at the snap of her greenish fingers.

Emerald green forest herbs crushed in a mortar and pestle and blended with resinous frankincense, wisteria and a drop of demon mint.
WENDY, the Tempest Witch 2015

She will blow you away, literally. Having command over the wind makes Wendy a very happy and light-hearted witch!

Breeze-dusted lavender honey, broom straw, silver bells, wind-whipped willow and Mercurial musk.
TERRA, the Tremor Witch 2015

If you're looking for Terra, your best bet would be to look in the forest caves hunkered down with the brown bears and grey wolves, or tending to her sacred grove of yew and apple trees.

Earthy patchouli, juicy yew berry, apple wood, loam, lichen and a kiss of frost.
STELLA, the Celestial Witch 2015

Even when she's standing next to you, her silver eyes reveal that her mind is a million light years away, longing for another world to call home.

Otherworldly and bioluminescent flowers deepened with the blackness of a night sky littered with stars.
MARISOL, the Tsunami Witch 2015

Watch what you say around Marisol, she's sensitive and cries at the drop of a pointed black hat. Deeply caring and feeling, her power knows no bounds - the power to love.

Ocean mist, lunar musk, moonflower and white amber complicated by white grapefruit and vanilla sugar.
TEMPORA the Time Witch 2015

Tempora feels at home during any day, year or era! Her cauldron is bigger on the inside and her trusty sonic broomstick is always at the ready to help her out of all the sticky situations she gets herself jammed into on her adventures through time, space and dimensions improbable and magical!

Legendary perfume components collected during her voyages, compounded in a cosmic mortar and pestle: Egyptian sandalwood gifted by Cleopatra from her own private reserve, the fragile scent of dried vanilla and dust extracted from the crumbling books and scrolls that once lined the shelves at the Library of Alexandria, sweetened black rose tea enjoyed with Queen Victoria in her garden. All deepened with rare, exotic and resplendent Oriental spice notes purchased from Marco Polo on the Silk Road.

VIII - CONJURE OILS 8th BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION 2015!

http://conjureoils.com/conjure%20ltd.htm
13 July 2015
HAPPY EIGHTH BIRTHDAY CONJURE!
Eight years ago I took a chance on the Little Perfume House that Could. I collected all my books, notes, formulas, supplies and knowledge and decided to hang out my shingle. I learned how to make a website and quickly recorded all that I had worked on up to that point. The words, just sketches at first really, seemed to flow from my fingers. The site seemed to write itself and before I knew it, I was bowled over with orders, emails and messages from people all over the world. Conjure Oils' mission seemed to really resonate with people and I was happy and grateful to provide individual love and attention to everyone I could. As folks received their orders, they would order again and again. I received more messages of praise and inspiration. I was encouraged by friends, clients - even haters! They all allowed me to continue to grow commercially and creatively. My site design became more opulent and user friendly. I got one of my first large wholesale accounts and was able to afford an amazing printer so the labels now were stunning and in full color! (Aside from formulating perfumes, one of my favorite tasks is label design. At last, my Bachelors in Fine Arts comes in handy!)
Over time, more categories were added, Limited Editions concocted, evil plots hatched. I say these things not out of self aggrandizement, but out of a need to give recognition to all those who have interacted with Conjure in any way: all the purchases, the custom orders, the patience with the turn around time, the recommendations, the gifts sent, the books loaned, the decant circles, the reviews written, the blog entries about Conjure, the Conjure County forum (that I need to work on to get it going again), the Facebook fans, the Twitter followers, the hoarders, the retailers and the girl I saw in Gresham who had a Conjure Oils tote bag. I fucking love you all. Madly.
As Conjure continues to grow, it is my dream to be able to offer more hand made bath and body products consistently. I would also like to build up the Etsy store with back stock and to push my comfort zone and begin to vend at various cons and festivals, as I get repeated requests to do so. I know the last year was hard on me and therefore Conjure. I am humbled and grateful that you all stuck with me through that trying period. I was overwhelmed with all the wonderful words of support and encouragement I received. I am particularly thankful to my husband Sterling for taking over the shipping aspect of Conjure. I truly appreciate all your efforts and ideas.
Conjure has allowed me to connect and share the love with people in ways I never thought possible. Strangers became clients and clients became friends and friends became family. Thank you to all of you!
I love you all. Now on to the Birthday Celebration fragrance before I start weeping!

VIII - CONJURE OILS 8th BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION!
http://conjureoils.com/conjure%20ltd.htm
Borrowing Pamela Coleman-Smith's amazing artwork from the Rider-Waite-Smith tarot deck, I present for Conjure's 8th birthday the 8th card in the Major Arcana: Strength.
The Strength card represents not physical strength, but inner strength. The ability to tame your fears and have the courage create the life you'd like to live. It also encourages the ability to endure the blocks, pain and madness life randomly puts in our path. This path to courage and resilience isn't a forced one; it is forged with love and compassion for yourself and for others. It bridges our id and the super ego by balancing and nourishing our ego, keeping it in a healthy and effective state of being. Only though love can we tame the beast of the world - the lion that roars without and within. Through purity of will and intention no perceived threat is insurmountable. Love is the key, as love is eternal. Open your heart to the endless possibilities that life has to offer. You hold the key.
Let your inner radiance glow vibrant and true: the clout of precious Indian cardamom infused sandalwood merges with heartwarming sweet tonka, invigorating ginger and golden Arabian frankincense. Shimmering top notes of courageous bergamot, bold blood orange and a proud drop of black pepper are the gleaming jewels in this potent philtre.

Hellfire Heatwave! Buy 2 Get 1 FREE! sale!


6 July 2015

Buy 2 GET 1 FREE SALE!!



(Share this image for good karma and extra goodies in your order!)

     Holy heat, Batman! We here in the Pacific Northwest have just been relentlessly pummeled with temperatures in the 90's and upward. This heat wave is very atypical for this time of year and if it weren't for the good graces of our sainted land lord and lady providing us with a/c I'm pretty sure It'd be impossible to do anything, considering I'd be a quivering, steaming puddle of goo spreading about the kitchen floor.

     Nonetheless! It's officially summer here. Time to think about Fall and the next Hallows and Mixtape updates. Yes, I'm feeling better, thank you all for the well wishes! In case you missed the memo, I had half of my pancreas removed in December and I've been laid up with that up until recently. I still have significant pain, but my energy has returned. It truly kicked my ass. Speaking of getting your ass kicked, I don't know if you've noticed, but the name gestapo on Facebook have decided to suspend my account because they don't believe my name is real. I sent them the required documentation, so it's just a matter of time now until they get off their smarmy asses and reinstate me. They can take my money for ads, yet deny my identity is laughable. So the Conjure Oils page is silent for the moment. Grr.


     Anyway, since it's summer, I'd like to do a little housecleaning and unload some bottles of former Limited Editions kicking around before I go through all the trouble of posting them on our Etsy page. That will get put up eventually. However, I'd also like to offer a Buy 2 get 1 FREE sale today, because I'm feeling good for once and Conjure's EIGHTH birthday is just around the corner!

SALE! - Buy 2 get 1 FREE!!  

   So, I bet you're wondering how to take advantage of this sale, aren't ya? It's EASY PEASY! You add the two selections you'd like in your cart and in the "Note to Seller" (I think that's it. It opens a text box) This is where you write in your third free item.

You can also just send us the payment via paypal at conjureoils dot com and state your order in the email. You can always email me and I will invoice you (madv at conjureoils dot com) or call us and I can take your order over the phone.

CELEBRATE EQUALITY! #LoveWins and Love is the Law are LIVE and for a good cause!

26 June  2016

Well that was a hiatus, wasn't it? After Ming! died, I had a heart thick with grief and endured a pretty heavy duty surgery on my pancreas (I'm fine! No worries!) but the healing and recovery from it has been sheer hell. I can endure physical pain and discomfort, but it deeply affected my energy and endurance. Couple that with general malaise and you have a recipe that kills even the most stalwart creative person's juices.

But today I'm back, bitches! I am INSPIRED by today's Supreme Court ruling that legalizes and recognizes marriage equality in all 50 states. It's truly a great day in America when the Constitution is upheld allowing equal protection under the law, freedom and liberty to all who live here. May our society continue this patriotic and proud pace!

While we take today to rightfully celebrate this historic victory, tomorrow it's back to work! There are many issues that we must lavish with our love and attention. Today's victory is but a step on the constant incline on the journey to justice, equality and liberty.

All proceeds (after basic costs and expenses. Read: most) will be donated to Cyndi Lauper's True Colors Fund, an organization that works to bring an end to GLBT youth homelessness. A truly worthy cause!

Allow me now to introduce these two commemorative perfumes: #LoveWins and Love is the Law

THE RAINBOW BRIDGE
"Today is a big step in our march toward equality. Gay and lesbian couples now have the right to marry, just like anyone else. #LoveWins" - President Barack Obama's Tweet following SCOTUS' decision.
A jubilant and triumphant blend of vibrant crimson carnation blossoms. mandarin orange, yellow bergamot, green patchouli leaf infused aged vanilla resin and blue poppy finished with a kiss of violet.

LOVE IS THE LAW
Ol' uncle Al Crowley said it best: LOVE IS THE LAW. Use your freedom and liberty to celebrate the Scarlet Woman or Man in us all.
The deep lust filled scent of sacred sexuality: aged black patchouli seared with sensual cassia, enveloped in the essences of red and black musks and finished with the bite of dragon's breath.
