Happy 5th Anniversary to Conjure! Let's Celebrate with a SCENT and a SALE! Friday the 13th

Hello Everyone!

I hope you're having a wonderful summer with your friends, family and loved ones and are taking the time to squeeze in all those projects and desires that occupied your mind during the dark and cold fall and winter months.

July is a busy month here in Conjure County! We've got a Friday the 13 to commemorate with a ritual oil based on a formula for an ancient Chinese restorative tonic, Conjure Oils has a fifth anniversary to celebrate with a perfume dedicated to the Orisha Oshun as well as a buy 2 get 1 free sale! This month we witness the launch of Conjure Oils' Etsy Limited Edition Curio Cabinet complete with long ago retired LE's such as Hallows' Mara and Miss Lucy's Haiku. We will also be adding some other goodies over the next few days such as custom perfumes and decanting supplies! 


I simply cannot believe it's been five years since I opened the scented doors to the Little Perfume House that Could! These last five years have been amazing. I've met some of the best, most beautiful and genuine people through Conjure. I've learned so much about what it means to run my own business and what it means to grow as an artist, a perfumier and as an individual as well. There is no way I would be here if it weren't for trusting the mad idea that my idea was worth investing in and that I could count on myself to see my dream to fruition. I'm grateful I took the chance. Which reminds me of my favorite quote I first read in Julia Cameron's book The Artists' Way "Leap and the net will appear."

I feel so incredibly blessed to do what I love as my job and to work for myself is a true miracle. After all, I do come with a warning label: "does not work well with others" :D

In honor of Conjure's 5th anniversary, I present to you:

Decanted in 5ml glass amber bottles 
$18, $19 for glass amber 5ml roll-on

The number five is sacred to the Orisha Oshun. Many consider Oshun to be flirtatious, a femme fatale and sometimes conversely, sweetly demure. In my experience, Oshun is a fierce warrior. While she does have elements to her personality that are coquettish, Oshun, the youngest of all Orishas, is arguably the most powerful. When Olodumare created the world, s/he could tell it was still incomplete. Looking down upon the newly created world God saw the sheer raw and vast beauty of his/her creation and tears of joy and ecstasy rolled down his/her cheeks cascading on to the world below. Born in those tears was Oshun. She adds to life all that makes it worth living: sensuality, pleasure, beauty, community, friends, and of course, love. 

By using all the sweets she adores, Conjure Oils' Fifth Anniversary Celebration fragrance is dedicated to Oshun and all the gifts she gives us : Vanilla custard filled cream puff pastry is dusted with Ceylon cinnamon and drizzled with orange blossom honey and set ablaze with five yellow beeswax candles. 

FIVE will be available for five days (July 8), or until supplies are exhausted.
