Summer LE Update is Live! GC Additions!

Hello everyone!

Hope you've all been well! It's been a hot and dusty summer out here in the Oregon countryside. I have more blueberries and roosters than I know what to do with! I've been eating them by the handful (the blueberries, that is!) and thinking that a site addition was overdue and I saw no better day than to launch a site update on the new moon and the day of an eclipse as well!

This past July 13 marked Conjure Oils' second birthday! YAY! We've now entered the terrible twos! I'm excited to see what the future holds for the little perfume house that could!

Anyway, on to the updates!

The first order of business is this: I've added Via Carpathia as part of the permanent collection on the Conjure Oils site! There are only so many pleading emails I can read and not cave in! LOL! However this comes with a bit of a catch. Since the line began as a Limited Edition line and their ingredients are harder to come by, I've had to leave the prices as they were. I'm also not going to be able to make pips of the line available. But don't fret though, you can bet your fangs I'll send them out as frips with your orders to entice you evilly, as I have been so often accused of doing. :D

Secondly, to celebrate Conjure Oils' second birthday, I've created a limited edition line just to celebrate the occasion! I bring to you:

Conjure Oils' 2nd Birthday Celebration!

Legend has it that there is much to know about a person based on the day of the week that they were born. We're reminded of the old nursery rhyme:

"Monday's child is fair of face,
Tuesday's child is full of grace,
Wednesday's child is full of woe,
Thursday's child has far to go,
Friday's child is loving and giving,
Saturday's child works hard for a living,
But the child who is born on the Sabbath Day
Is bonny and blithe and good and gay."

This birthday celebration limited edition line takes its inspiration from this charming rhyme by weaving together character traits with corresponding fragrance notes resulting in an inspired limited edition collection that is surely something to be celebrated!



For the curious, Conjure Oils was born on Friday, July 13 2007. Lucky day, that!

Monday's Child

Monday's child is fair of face...

Monday belongs to the Moon and her cool, mysterious lunar influences. I can't think of one thing that adds such instant enchantment and other-worldly beauty than being bathed in silvery moonlight. Here's a moon-mix for all the luna-tics out there!

luminous lunar-white gardenia blossoms, black myrrh, white sandalwood and a sliver of juicy papaya eclipsed by cooling coconut pulp

Tuesday's Child

Tuesday's child is full of grace...

Tuesday belongs to the energetic planet Mars - not often considered the most graceful of planetary influences, but that depends on your perspective as power and passion are imbued with their own gorgeous grace.

a fierce philter of CO's Apothecary dragon's blood, dried ginger, hawthorn, black pepper, High John the Conqueror root and tobacco blooms

Wednesday's Child

Wednesday's child is full of woe...

Mercury, that quick-witted genius of a planet, claims Wednesday as its own. Perhaps the woe of Wednesday's children come from the mental anguish they must suffer from carrying that big ol' head on their shoulders!

bergamot, lily of the valley, mulberry, pomegranate and hazelnut creme

Thursday's Child

Thursday's child has far to go...

Thursday's child has the ever-expansive Jupiter to thank for that one. If your world and ambitions are ever broadening, it's going to take a longer time to get from one side of your dream to the other. Keep walking!

Friday's Child

Friday's child is loving and giving...

Friday's child couldn't be anything less! Being ruled by Venus, named after the Roman goddess of love and pleasure, it's no wonder these kids are all about the love. The goddess demands it!

African violet, oud, orris root, red plum, pink sweet pea blossoms, French vanilla, champagne and red raspberries

Saturday's Child

Saturday's child works hard for a living...

Of course Saturday's children work hard for a living - they have no choice! By being ruled by the slow and curmudgeonly restrictive Saturn, these children have got the hard work groove down - and the cash flow to prove it!

Indonesian patchouli, emerald ivy, mimosa, euphorbia and quince

Sunday's Child
But the child who is born on the Sabbath Day, Is bonny and blithe and good and gay.

That great big boss star in the sky, our Sun, is the ruler of Sunday. Like a sunny day, Sunday's children radiate joyous light, warmth, generosity and goodness. They may also just be good and gay, and that's simply fabulous!
