New Formulas

Four new oils available on ebay, (which you guys helped me name! I have the greatest readers!)

Coffee at Midnight – the chocolate/vanilla/sex appeal formula I wrote about a few entries ago.

Chrysalis – the love/attraction/healing blend I wrote about in the same entry.

Damiana – this has other stuff in it besides damiana, but that's the centerpiece of the formula.  Damiana is the classic aphrodisiac, and this oil is formulated to heat things up. A unisex blend, its scent is a bit sweet and a bit spicy, and it has a slight hint of the pungent green herbal aroma of an after-dinner aperitif from one of those French cabarets in the late 1800s.  Containing rare and precious absinthe essential oil, it is designed to loosen inhibitions and inspire creativity 🙂

Passion – another tea-inspired blend, this is a love-drawing formula, but it works in more than one "direction" – much like the Chrysalis blend, it's designed for clients who need a new lease on life, not just their love lives (though it is made to work for that too).  If you're in a rut, need to get out more, but can't quite work up the optimism to get out there, this is a good place to start.  I generally "prescribe" a tea+bath ritual for clients in this situation – a spiritual bath for the outside and a cup of tea for the inside.  So I've made this formula for those who want to dress a candle or mojo bag (or clothing, or curtains, or whatever) as part of their work towards reorienting their love lives – and this works by helping to reorient their lives so there is room for love and passion. And this starts with self-love, optimism, and a passion for life.  It's not a one-candle sort of thing – it's a makeover.  But this is a good start.  Passion is a bright, slightly citrusy blend with notes of fruit and just a tiny hint of spice; this unisex blend can be used if you're looking for a new relationship, but it can also be used if you're leaving behind an old one and want to get your spirits back up – even if you're not ready to start dating yet.  It's all about you and the passion in your life – for life.

chance to win free condition oil – help name my new oils!

I will sit down to choose names for some of my new oils probably this weekend, so if you haven't visited this post yet to suggest a name and get a chance to win a free bottle of condition oil, don't delay!  There are some great ideas there already but I haven't made my final decision yet!

new condition oils – need names

I have some new formulas, but I need names for them and I am just too tired to think of any.  So hit me up, and if you suggest the "winning" name, and I name my formula after your suggestion, you get a free bottle of any of these, your choice (in other words, if you name the chocolate one but you don't want it and would rather have the healing one, you can have the healing one).  Make sense?

This one will be called Coffee at MidnightOne's a "sexual attraction" type thing, and I've modeled it on a really excellent chocolate-infused specialty tea that I love and have prescribed to clients who are going the "tea and bath" route (the "inside and outside" treatment, really good for spiritual cleansing, protection, and attraction especially). It's got love/affection elements, but definitely a strong lust element.  Redolent with vanilla and coffee absolutes (and thus rich and expensive) it does all the good attracting work of a "foodie" sort of oil (the whole vanilla and sugar cookies thing) but with more depth, spice, and earth than those sticky-sweet blends, and it's not soporific or sickly.  It is, after all, caffeinated 🙂  The current batch has matured for a few months now and its true scent should be what I've got in the bottle, so I'm pretty confident that this is a good alternative — richer, earthier — to oils like Kaliprix that do the passion, attraction, glamor, and sex appeal thing, but without the strong floral notes that some folks (including me) are not looking for in an oil. (I am just not a roses-and-violets type of person, and I don't personally like or use floral-scented body products, and I'd just as soon have coffee, chocolate, and vanilla over roses. Don't get me wrong – this is sweet – but it's "expensive coffee" sweet and not "two pumps of cheap hazelnut syrup" sweet.)  Can be used by anyone of any gender or orientation.

ETA: This oil is going to be called Chrysalis:  Another is a formula that combines healing and love-drawing; I've designed it for those clients I get who are older, have "loved and lost," have sometimes been single for a while or even divorced or widowed.  It combines elements to draw true steady love with elements to heal from past heartache, and fosters self-respect and esteem/optimism as well (very often an issue for clients who are looking for new love later in life, even when they think it isn't).  I have been prescribing a similar formula for the tea+bath/inside+outside remedy for clients in this situation for a while, and I finally got around to making an oil formula for it too, for those who like to include light setting in their bath rituals; this one especially makes a good "pre-Friday-night-out" ritual.  It's a bit citrus, a bit energizing, a bit earthy, a bit healing – a nice, subtle-steady-energy, balanced attraction/healing blend.  It's especially suitable for women who are nearing, or adjusting to, menopause.

website update

In theory, you can now buy one dram bottles of hoodoo condition oils directly from my website with a paypal shopping cart feature.  You can buy some of my Voodoo and specialty half-ounce oils the same way.

If you try this and find any glitches, let me know.  If all else fails, I can always just send you an itemized invoice for what you want via paypal.  If you are dying for something you don’t see, let me  know, and I"ll do my best to get it listed – but I’m slammed busy right now, so be patient with your poor little old overworked Karma.

Look, the site is ugly – don’t tell me, I already know.  But if I can get it kicking, then I can ultimately offer oils for less money, eventually.  Ebay gets something like $.56 for every bottle of oil sold from my store.  That doesn’t include paypal fees or my costs for herbs, oils, bottles, packing materials, etc.  I’d just as soon pass on the fifty cents to you guys in the form of savings as give it to ebay, you know?

ETA: I have new business cards.  You want one.
