LOVE: IT'S ALL GREEK TO MEEnglish can be a bit lacking when it comes to ways to describe LOVE. I mean, there are compound words like in love, deep love, true love but they aren't words themselves. I thought it was interesting when I came across these unique Greek words for different variations for love to represent our Lupertine collection for 2014. I have crafted these very potent oils not only to be gorgeously fragrant, but to embody the properties of each type of love. If you want a good time, Ludus is what you want, want some crazy sexy time with a bit of danger? Eros is for you. And so it goes with each scent! All blended with the expertise that you can't find anywhere else other than Conjure Oils. Have a wonderful Lupertine and get the love YOU want! Of course, you can always just wear them because you like the scent! No harm in that. Either way, I hope you enjoy Conjure's Lupertine 2014 collection!
EROS: SEXUAL PASSIONNamed after the Greek god of fertility and represented an idea of passion and desire. It also had a connotation of danger and wildness, where people would lose themselves and "fall" in love. as in a type of possession.Immerse yourself in the madness and passion and danger that the desire of Eros can bring.Provocative patchouli is melded with sultry notes of juicy hips of rose and bloody thorns, sacred crimson apple incense and myrtle all topped with passionate aged vanilla resin.
PHILIA: DEEP FRIENDSHIPPhilia, simply put, is friendship. Valued by the Greeks far more than the sexuality of Eros, Philia was the love between brothers in arms who fought in combat together. It embodied friendly loyalty, sacrifice, and sharing your deep dark feelings with one another. In this day and age of Twitter and FaceBook it really wouldn't hurt to take an inventory and see how many people how many people with whom you truly share Philia.

AGAPE: UNIVERSAL LOVESelfless love and perhaps the most radical of all the loves. This was love that was extended to all people: friend, family, stranger, foreigner, etc. In Buddhism they call it "universal loving kindness" and in Christianity it is known as "gift love". Empathy is a hard love to master these days, it seems. It seems some folks find it simpler to forget people in need and dismiss those who are different.One of the greatest things we can do spiritually is to exercise out compassion and our empathy. Be sure to extend your love to the world and all the people in it.
