Lotions are soon to be added to the site along with the soaps available in the Oddment Emporium. But before they went live, I thought I'd have a bit of a preview and offer something special, that will never be offered again - pick your own scent! (Choose from any scent in the catalog except Hoodoo, Book of Shadows, Via Carpathia and the Limiteds.)
The lotion is 4 sexy ounces of luxurious, organic (mostly) heavily scented body lotion.
It's $19.50 per bottle plus $5 for shipping (unless you order is over $50 - then it ships free!) Send payment to firstname.lastname@example.org
And yes, add ons are welcome!
This is the ONLY time Whore of Babylon will be available as a lotion scent. ♥
Because... Due to evil component issues beyond my control, Whore of Babylon will be discontinued when stock is depleted. This is the last month that Whore of Babylon soap will be offered and lotions in the scent will never go live.
If it's any consolation, I am working on a Whore of Babylon v2.0.
Thanks for your love and understanding. I'm as heartbroken as you are.

Friday the 13th is fast upon us. Often thought of as an unlucky day, people often avoid having anything at all to do with it. But if you look deeper, you'll discover that the 13th and the number 13 give us the opportunity to revert bad luck to good and turn misfortune into dumb luck.
Let Conjure Oils help get you out from under the Wheel of Fortune. You can't lose with the stuff we use!

Knock on Wood
No one is certain where the tradition of "knocking on wood" when one temps fate with boastful comments comes from, but one thing is for certain -- the tradition appears everywhere throughout the world. (Wiki "knock on wood" and be amazed!) so perhaps there's something to it after all. Maybe it has roots in pre-Christian traditions where knocking on wood would implore the sympathy and protections of the tree spirits residing within.

Used in the hoodoo tradition, the number 13 is used to put bad luck in reverse, whether it be 13 ingredients or working on Friday the 13th itself.
