Miss Victoria's Atypical Tea House and Marauding Mercantile, Conjure Oils' 1 year anniversary!


I can’t believe it! Today is the one year anniversary of Conjure Oils!

I want to take this chance to thank each and every one of you for your love, gratitude, support and kindness over the past year. It has been an amazing, educational and fruitful time well spent! From the bottom of my heart: thank you, thank you, thank you!

In celebration of today’s event, here is a preview of a new line soon to be added to the Conjure Oils catalog:

Miss Victoria’s Atypical Tea House and Marauding Mercantile

Very Victorian, decidedly deadly. Miss Victoria’s is the place to go to order a cup of Earl Black tea (because Gray just wasn’t dark enough) and to make sure you have the latest device suited for turn of the century espionage or airship piracy.

The previewed scents from Miss Victoria’s Atypical Tea House and Marauding Mercantile are available in 5ml, 10ml and pip sizes as well.

To order, please visit the Conjure Oils website, Current Conjurations page!

A sampling from The Atypical Tea House:

Earl BlackWhen Grey isn’t dark enough! Brilliant bergamot and smoked black tea leaves are deeply steeped releasing the subtle note of aged oak. Sugar cane and a drop of cream enhance the enticing aroma. A dark tea for dark thoughts.

From The Marauding Mercantile:

The Befuddling FanSimple enough at first glance – a pale, intricately carved sandalwood folding fan hailing from the Far East. However, these fans are perfumed with a special blend of botanical oils reputed to seduce would-be suitors and confound enemies alike. Encase yourself in an enchanting cloud of white opium, ginger lily, Eastern temple sandalwood and a gentle haze of violet fog.

...more soon to come...

Thanks again for a great year and I hope for many, many more!

All the best,

At last! Some help with the PayPal cart of doom!

Hello everyone!

It's gorgeous here today! Sunny, but not too hot. Perfect day to sit inside and create didactic illustrations! Whee!

If you've ever checked out from Conjure Oils using the PayPal shopping cart, you may have been frustrated by the seeming lack of a space to enter your delicious selections.

Well, fret no more! I've made a 1-2-3 punch illustration of how to access the elusive box!

Here's the diagram:
(click to enlarge)

I hope that you find it useful! If it makes zero sense, please do let me know so I can create a new one.

All the best!

New Witch Magazine

Hello Everyone!

I hope you're getting ready to have a nice weekend!

I just wanted to point out something cool:

In the latest issue of New Witch magazine, there's an article about a dear friend of mine, Renee Bosler and her etsy store, LemurGurl Art (home of the wondrous Womberscootch!).

Note the mention of Conjure Oils in the last paragraph! Huzzah!

The cover of the latest NW looks like this:

and here's a scan of the article:

All the best,


also, be on the lookout for a bit of a surprise. July 13th is Conjure's one year anniversary and I'd like to mark the occasion with a li'l somethin' somethin'.
