July’s Limited Edition Ritual Oil
Last Day to Buy: Friday, July 30
In the heat of the summer, you emerge to hold midnight frolics with frenzied dancing. You are capable of bringing your blessing, spraying your river’s fields with nourishing water or bringing death to those who displease you, laughing the entire time you drown your prey. Your body slips away from any who would attempt to hold you.
Scent Notes: Dark murky salt marshes, heady seductive aquatic blooms entwined with grasping reeds, siphons of immodest resins and dried flora.
Wear to connect to your savage glamour and bring richness to your life.
Suitable for Rusalkas of all genders.
Art is a remixed sketch by John William Waterhouse for the painting Hylas and the Nymphs.
Rusalka has been created in my enchanted workshop, Spare Oom. While Rusalka 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.
