Keeping thinking and dreaming about what we’re creating in Spare Oom! Deb is on hard book deadline, so our new launches won’t happen til Spring.
For now, we’ve been receiving requests at the shop for how to store your Ritual Oils from our most devoted collectors. For the more modest, we suggest a version of this as we used to use it at our shows for display. Sturdy and inexpensive! For the more luxurious, a friend of ours has suggested a version of this. Stylish and antique!
The first flush of the new year, where hope flourishes with unchecked potential, new vivid dreams, untamed changes taking root and endless possibility flowing like a river. Anything can can happen if you dare.
Fortis Fortuna Adiuvat, so be brave, be bold, be daring and find the first seedlings of hope inside yourself.
Scent Notes: Wild hope, blooming in the winter. Greens of the spring to come with Sicilian Bergamot, Tonka and Exotic Oud. Hope gone feral with leather and smoky tobacco. Buoyant hope uplifting with fruity grapefruit layer blended beautifully with neroli. Opulent hope draped in redolent rich raw honey.
Use in your sacred work to find hope to uplift yourself in the heart of the dark and to add power to your work for the coming year.
Suitable for every wild creature.
Wild Hope has been created in my enchanted workshop, Spare Oom. While Wild Hope can simply be worn on pulse points as a perfume, and enjoy it that way, it can also be used with your magical work. Wear with your intention over the corresponding chakra, anoint your jewelry with it, pouring a little on a candle to set your intention that way, pouring a little into a bath to use for a ritual bath, you can also anoint crystals or other ritual tools with it or, simply wear as a fragrance you enjoy.
Each oil comes in a 5ML glass amber bottle with a Euro dropper lid. For a visual reference, the bottles are the same size as the Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab bottles.
