Malala & Mary

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

I created a ritual oil for Mary Magdalene for my sisters, but I made more than I needed.  I have decided to put up the extras in my shop.  Generally, with a Limited Edition, I only offer full sized bottles.  But in the spirit of Mary Magdalene, I wanted to offer a smaller size to make this possible for everyone.

We always say that our magic should be able to affect the physical world, right Charmers?  Your purchase of this Limited Edition does just that.  I created this ritual oil to bring my sisters to their root of power.  Acquiring this ritual oil will give you a taste of that and create real change for teenaged girls who are denied an education in developing countries.  If that’s not magic then I don’t know what is.

Mary Magdalene: For the patroness of perfumers, nothing less would do than pure rich, smoky balsamic myrrh and intoxicatingly decadent rose essential oils draped over woody and earthy sandalwood and bejeweled scarlet pomegranate. Healing aloe and palms, heavenly freesia, French jasmine, divine orchid, exotic tea, and soft vanilla are balanced with sensual dark oud wood, earthy patchouli, woodsy musk and rich amber.malala and mary

100% of your purchase price goes to the Malala Fund. The shipping goes to the US Post Office because well, see the new Testament on tax collectors, etc.

There are only eleven tiny testers of Mary Magdalene and only eight full sized bottles in this Limited Edition. Once they’re gone, they’re gone!

Mary Magdalene has been created in my enchanted workshop, Spare Oom. While Mary Magdalene can simply be worn on pulse points as a fragrance oil, it can also be used to invoke the Magdalene and your root of power. For more information on my process in making this particular ritual oil please see here.
