June’s Limited Edition Ritual Oil
Last Day to Buy: Friday, July 2nd
Sometimes, you are in love, asking for only one thing from your beloved(s). You ask for solitude so that you may unfurl your two tails in the tub, breathing as more than a mortal for a precious few hours before you resume your ordinary human life. When your lover is faithless, unable to resist seeing you in your true form and spies on you, you drown your lover in your bath. You dive back to the lush springs deep in the forest where you will be with your mélusine kin, weaving reeds, singing songs to your ancestors, braiding each other’s long locks until you are once again in love, vowing this time will be different.
Sometimes, only the oceans can hold you. You are alone with your grief, the salt air on your lips, the brine of your tears streaking your cheeks, your weeping and wailing on the wind. Until you find the strength for your sorrow to be made beautiful again.
Sometimes, in this modern life, you hold the elixir of life to pull your mortal brethren through the day. You can spin their anxieties, their despair and their insecurities into power. Shrines to your image are found on coffee cups everywhere.
Scent Notes: Intensely aquatic ocean mist with stormy ozone laid over a sea bed of summer driftwood and lush sensual spices.
Wear to bring bring yourself control over your own life, to find love again, to find beauty in difficult emotions and to find triumph in unexpected places.
Suitable for mélusines of all genders.
Mélusine has been created in my enchanted workshop, Spare Oom. While Mélusine 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.
