OL of Mt. Carmel Sale: 20% off Candles category

Use code julycandles to take 20% of all items in the Candles category, including hand-poured candles (used to be just votives; now available as tealights, votives, and glass container candles), custom-fixed 3-day and 7-day candles (some commercially prepared and custom fixed, some custom made from scratch), and spell/prayer kits that feature candles (not all of those are updated yet, but if you know there’s something you want, feel free to write and I’ll move that one to the top of the queue for updating). Expires 31 July.

This sale has nothing in particular to do with Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, especially, but it’s starting on her holy day so I’m naming it in her honor!

Using Discount Codes:

“For direct payment gateways [this means if you use a credit card to pay through shopify payments], the discount code can be entered on page 2 of the checkout process when the customer has the opportunity to select a shipping method and enter in credit card information.” [That’s where you enter julycandles.]

“PayPal Express, being an offsite payment gateway, works a bit differently. This is the PayPal Express Checkout’s workflow: when checking out, your customer goes to paypal.com right away, where PayPal collects his shipping and billing addresses. After that, the customer returns to Shopify where he picks a shipping rate, types in a discount code (if you have discount codes that are ‘active’), the price is updated accordingly and, on that same page, your customer gets to finalize his transaction.” [That’s where you enter julycandles.]

july coupon codes – take 10%-20% off karmazain.com

I was going to have a July sale on mastery/commanding items, but DSL is still too spotty and I’m afraid I won’t have time to both set it up and post it before 3 am. So I just updated codes that expired last month so you can use them in July, since that was the quickest way to get the July specials out.

From now until July 15, use these codes when you check out through the new storefront for percentages off your entire order:

use code july10 for 10% off orders over 15.00
use code july15 for 15% off orders over 50.00
use code july20 for 20% off orders above 99.00

Here are the instructions:

Write with your questions – I will publish and answer the really good ones as a regular “column” – you can ask anything, from hoodoo theory to recommendations to troubleshooting a spell you’ve done recently. Just shoot an email to karmazain at gmail.com and put “question for column” or something like that in the subject line. If I choose your question, you’ll not only get a perseonalized answer, you’ll get free goodies in the mail (my choice, but I will try to take preferences for formula families or product types into account).

website glitch + huge discounts for store testers

We are experiencing technical difficulties and karmazain.com is down at the moment. I’m on the phone with my registrar’s customer service now and hope to have this solved soon. Meantime, many services can be booked at my userinfo page or services post, or at my AIRR page, and urgent product orders can be placed by requesting an itemized invoice – just send me a list of what you want.


If you are feeling brave, you can also shop Karma Zain Spiritual Supplies at my new storefront, but be aware that it’s still under construction and some feathers are still sticking out. (It will be available at karmazain.com as soon as I get this mess sorted out, but right now there is this alternate URL.) I do need testers, and to that end I have put some discounts up to encourage folks to try it out and let me know their thoughts so far and any huge weirdness they encounter that I don’t know about yet. If you do hit a snag in browsing, email me and I may very well be able to iron it out in real time for you, or close to it. These discounts are significant and they completely eat any profit — for many items, it will actually cost me money to offer these discounts — so these won’t be available for too long; I just want to get the kinks out before I start promoting.

If you want to take advantage of the discounts, here are the details:

get $3 off orders over $6 with code lentlaunch3 [good until March 13]
get $5 off orders over $30 with code lentlaunch5 [good until March 12]
get $12 off orders over $65 with code lentlaunch12 [good until March 11]
get $22 off orders over $100 with code lentlaunch22 [good until March 10]

Does shipping count towards the total? Good question. I still have no idea.
Can you use more than one code? I hope not, but I have no idea.
Does the system give you an option for creating an account, or will it force you to? I am not sure.

You can see why I need testers so badly! You will probably encounter glitches; that’s the whole reason I’m offering these deep discounts, so be sure you understand that there may be hiccups in the ordering process.

Discounts apply to *anything in the store that is showing up as in stock,* including Consultations and other services.
If you want an item that I usually carry but that isn’t showing up yet, feel free to write and ask; I am prioritizing some listings over others, but if you have a request, I can easily adjust some priorities.


SERVICES NOT SHOWING: As of Friday night, you can’t get to the services through the pages called Altar Work and Consultations – those are just info pages at the moment. Services like light settings and consultations will be listed as store inventory soon (though shipping should not be charged). I am working on this but i’ts a lower priority than getting inventory and checkout weirdness ironed out since those services can still be booked elsewhere (like at this blog and at AIRR).
ETA: Consultations are now available at the website but are not yet linked to the directory/info page.

SHIPPING WEIRDNESS: There is a chance that you will not be charged shipping for your purchase. I have to update this in a manner that will take a very long time; some listings are updated and some aren’t. If you get lucky, you get lucky – enjoy the additional discount! If you are overseas, though, I might have to cancel your order if you aren’t charged shipping and don’t want to pay a second invoice; I can only afford so much cost here in the name of testing.

MAILING LIST: It was working, and then it wasn’t, and I don’t understand what’s up yet, but I’m working on it. 
ETA: I believe the newsletter/mailing list signup is now working. You can enter your email address and then you will get a confirmation link to confirm.

CATALOG LINK: Working on it. Currently linking to Oils category only; to get to the entire list of store categories, go down to Quick Links at the bottom, or to the drop down on pages with that feature, and choose Collections. This is the same thing as Categories.

ITEMS WITHOUT THUMBNAILS: I know. I just have to upload each one manually, even if they all have the same photo. It’s a feature :/

NO ITEM INFO IN POWDER/INCENSE CATEGORY: This is not only a known issue, it’s been an issue for years now 🙂 Unfortunately, I just always had things higher up on the priority list, and many of these items have never had product descriptions. It’s on the to-do list though.

RELATED PRODUCTS: This is weird, but it’s probably going to stay weird until I get all the stuff put into its proper category, and that has to be done one item at a time.

COUPON CODES: Apparently, you need to enter the coupon code after paying. So if you don’t see a place to enter it beforehand, maybe don’t panic? This makes no sense to me but I will check it out when I get somebody to go through checkout while I’m sitting here over their shoulder so I can see what’s going on.

THANK YOU TO EVERYBODY WHO HAS TESTED THE SITE SO FAR!! If anybody hits an issue not already listed, feel free to holler at me. Or if you have any comments or suggestions, I would love to hear those too. This switch has been in the works for a while; I had hoped to make it prettier before I launched, but my hand was forced when my domain went down today despite my having renewed it [if you want to know who NOT to get your domain from, I can make a suggestion 😦  ]

If you want to browse, create an account, and/or add yourself to the new email list without shopping just yet, feel free to do that too. The newsletter will be the source through which I will publish future newsletters with updates, recipes, coupons, and offers. The subscribe feature is at the very bottom of any page (I hope).

RAFFLE and SALE – Ultra-Reduced Light Settings; Four Categories of Prizes, drawing July 23

This post announces a SALE which is simultaneously a “RAFFLE” for PRIZES (but a faux raffle – for your purposes, it works like a raffle, I just have to actually deliver an item to you to keep it legal.) The paypal buttons don’t work on wordpress, so you will have to go over to the mirror blog on livejournal to purchase/enter.
Overseas customers ARE eligible and welcome to enter the drawing.So legally this is a sale; you are purchasing a physical item. Each purchase of an item gives one chance to win a prize and enters you into a drawing for that prize category. Drawing will be held on July 23, 2013. There are four categories of sale, and four different prizes, one for each category.
Sale and Prize Categories

HOLY MEDAL Sale: Prize = Saint (or Loa) Devotional Kit
BATH SALT Sale: Prize = Ultimate Attraction Oil
VOODOO and Specialty/Esoteric OIL Sale: Prize = Extra-Strength Mojo Bag with Bone*
HOODOO Oil Sale: Prize = Spell Kit Gift Basket

Light Settings

You can also have a small light set (photo but no report) by making a donation of whatever amount you choose. Donations of $2 or more will enter you into a drawing for a full vigil light setting with report (to be set once I am reopened in my new location).

How It Works

The paypal buttons below are “buy it now,” not a cart.  The shipping cost is built in – what you see is what you pay; there is no shipping added later.  You select the category you would like to purchase in, hit the button, and tell me what (one) formula or item from that category you want using the “text” section of the paypal form. The item cost includes first-class shipping to the US, UK, Australia, Canada, and pretty much anywhere else (though be aware that Italy has a lousy track record with safe, timely delivery of packages from the US).*

If you want to get more than one item, or want to have more than one entry into the drawing for your category, or want to enter into more than one prize category, then you’ll need to complete a separate transaction for each one. A pain, I know, but here’s why it’s a one-button sale with no cart, where you cannot get more than one item in each transaction: Each purchase enters you in for a chance to win the prize associated with its category. It works just like a raffle; it just has to be a “faux raffle” because of legal/tax fine print.

So every purchase is really a purchase – you pay $6.50 for a bottle of Protection oil (includes shipping), and you get a bottle of Protection oil.  But along with that purchase, you are entered into the drawing for the Hoodoo Oils prize.  If you want more than two bottles of oil, you have to complete two transactions, but you get two entries as well.  If you want ten chances to win, you have to make ten purchases.  If you want a chance at two different prizes, you have to make a purchase in two different categories.  The sale will end and the buttons will come down the night of Tuesday the 23rd of July; each purchase is entered into the hat and the winners are drawn randomly on that night, and their prizes will shipped to them. Standard prep/handling times apply to all products purchased.

So no, there is no shopping cart and no combined shipping and no shipping discount.  The purpose is to raise funds for my store’s relocation, and I am on a short deadline, so it’s simplest for me to do a one-item-per-transaction and one-transaction-per-entry. And, as a thank-you for participating, you get a chance to win a potentially substantial prize for the cost of a packet of bath salts or bottle of oil.

So you can think about it as a sale on certain select items, each of which comes with a chance to win a prize, or you can think of it like buying a raffle ticket that happens to come with a product.  The point here is that legally, I’m not running a raffle.  But the more purchases you make in each category, the more chances to win the category’s prize.

HOLY MEDAL Sale: Prize = Saint (or Loa) Devotional Kit

Category: Holy Medal (your choice): choose from the following saints (or ask if your favorite is not listed): Gerard, Expedite, Michael, OL Czestochowa, Cecilia, Dymphna, Raphael, Joseph, Sebastian, Brigid, Philomena, Benedict, OL of Loretto, Guardian Angel., Peter, Paul.  Others are available; if you see it in stock at the store, you can order it here too. If you do not see it at the store, ask first if you want to be sure what you want is in stock. You can put a few choices in the text box if you like, in order of preference, and I’ll try to fill one of them, if you want to do it that way – it’s possible one or more will sell out before the sale is over, so you should probably at least put your top two choices in there in case your first choice sells out.

If you prefer a holy card instead of a holy medal, I can probably do that, but ask first if your heart is set on a card – I have more medals in stock than cards.  Medals and cards will ship in a regular first class envelope with a stamp, no delivery confirmation.   The prize will ship like my products usually ship, with padding/packaging and delivery confirmation.

Prize: I will send you a customized devotional kit for the saint, spirit, angel, or loa of your choice.  The exact ingredients will depend on the saint or spirit you choose AND on how many entries this category gets.  It will contain, at minimum, a rosary with a saints’ medal or other appropriate charm attached (no guarantees on material or style, but it won’t be some piece of ugly plastic, I promise); a bottle of liquid bath or soap (it might be a bath specific to your loa if I have a formula for it, or if you choose a saint and I don’t have a bath for that saint, I’ll send a corresponding bath or soap like Blessing, Protection, Psychic Vision, etc); a packet of herb mixture, blessed and dressed, suitable for incense or inclusion in a mojo bag or spell jar (same as with baths; if I have a formula for that saint or spirit, I’ll send that, or otherwise an appropriate companion formula); some sort of candle (depending on the saint or spirit); and some sort of image, depending on what saint or spirit you choose – it might be a holy card, it might be a veve painted onto whatever I feel like painting (a glass votive candle holder, or a bottle of oil, or a glass bottle for your altar, etc).

If this category gets 35 entries, I’ll definitely include a hand-crafted decorative altar or libation bottle – I’ll post an update if the category reaches that possibility). The winner has input on this – I’ll try to meet your dreams/preferences as I put your kit together, but no promises other than what is written here.  I have a lot of cool stuff lying around, though, like handmade, vintage scapulars imported from Peru, vintage French and Belgian saints medals, collections of ritual items that have been part of public or private workings with the loa, etc – basically, you’ll get a bunch of cool stuff and at least one cool thing that you can’t get otherwise or elsewhere, in addition to the baths/herbs/etc that I have listed above.

BATH SALT Sale: Prize = Ultimate Attraction Oil

Category: Bath Salt (your choice): choose from any listed in the Bath Salts, Crystals, and Floor Washes category in the store – regular retail price of $3/packet. (Basically, there’s a bath salt for just about every common hoodoo “condition.”)

Each purchase enters you to win a bottle of custom Ultimate Attraction Oil, containing real diamond dust and 24K gold.  Retails at $50 per two dram bottle.  This is a chance to own one of the highest-end formulas I make, totally customized for you with rare, costly curios and ingredients, for the cost of a fast-food breakfast, if your lucky number comes up. If this category receives 30 entries, then I will announce it, and I will announce an even larger size of oil, and/or a specialty bottle for the oil – I will have to go digging through my stuff to see what I have, but I know I have some old vintage perfume bottles and medicine / chemists bottles that would make extremely cool containers for this oil, so if it gets enough entries, the winner will get some kind of unusual and cool bottle for the oil as well, and depending on what I end up selecting, the quantity of the oil could increase too (I will announce this if it happens).

Prize: Ultimate Attraction Oil, containing appropriate essential oils and herbs, including real natural diamond dust, real 24 karat, lodestone, and pyrite.  In addition to containing some of the finest, most prized, and most expensive of hoodoo mineral curios, this oil will also be customized for your specific situation. Attraction oil is a general-purpose formula designed to draw love, luck, and money. If you win, just send me a note telling me the name of the person the oil is for and any details that you want me to consider in making, consecrating, and praying over the bottle. The result will be a bottle of Ultimate Attraction Oil powerfully customized for your specific needs and situation.  I can customize for love, for luck, for money, for any combination of emphasis on the three.  I can customize for gambling luck, for luck meeting dating partners, for luck in job hunting, investing, metal-detecting, sales work.  I can customize if you’re looking for a “get lucky tonight” oil, and I can customize for luck in a home, business, or marriage.  I can customize if you’re looking for a dating partner that will spoil you rotten and spend money on you, or a dating partner that is looking for love.  The details are up to you, and legally I can make no claims or guarantees about this oil having any supernatural powers. But I can promise that all customizations will be in an Attraction base that contains real gold and real diamonds as well as other herbs and essential oils prized by rootworkers for generations. And I can promise that this oil will be individually made by me, with full attention to your customization concerns. Please note that this is a spiritual item and not a cosmetic.

VOODOO and Specialty/Esoteric OIL Prize:  Prize = Extra-Strength Mojo Bag with Bone*

Category: Voodoo or Specialty/Esoteric oil (your choice): choose from any listed in the Specialty/Esoteric Oils category or the Voodoo Oils category at the store. This sale applies to any voodoo, specialty or esoteric oil that retails for $7 – sorry, but things like Black Cat Bone and Plagues of Egypt are not included in this sale.

Prize: Extra Strength Mojo of your choice, including those containing rare curios like human bones or whole roots that I do not ever have enough of to keep in regular inventory (though it **is** legal to possess and sell all the ingredients in these bags). You might choose an Extra Strength Black Arts, Sovereign Queen, Love, Reversing, Triple Hand, Triple Root, Thicker Than Water, Dreamwalker, or some custom bag. Most of these include a whole large root, specially gathered herbs (like blackberry leaves from a graveyard, for instance) or something like human or animal bones or teeth. If this category gets 20 entries, then I’ll announce it, and Black Cat Bone will then be among the options for the winner. Some of these bags are NOT commercially available otherwise or elsewhere and can ONLY be had through this prize drawing. Most of these start at about $50 and go up to $120 or more depending on types of curios. I will custom-finish it in consultation with the winner.

Visit the mirror blog for paypal buttons to enter.

HOODOO Oil Sale: Prize = Spell Kit Gift Basket or Box

Category: Hoodoo Condition Oils (your choice): choose from the list available in the Hoodoo Condition Oils category. Remember, this is just for regular hoodoo condition oils, the ones that retail for $5 at the web store, not the specialty or unusual oils.

Prize: Spell Kit Gift Basket or Box. I will work with the winner to establish what will be most suitable for their situation. A Protection kit basket or box, for instance, would contain at least a package of Spiritual Cleansing bath herb mix, a package of Home Protection salt crystals, a bottle St. Michael oil, a St Michael medal, a St. Michael candle of some sort, St. Benedict items of some sort, a House Consecration card, and a bottle of Banishing and Cleansing spray, Ctl-Alt-Smite, Reversing, or similar bath, wash, or soap.

Visit the mirror blog for paypal buttons to enter.


LIGHT SETTING: Donation-Based

If you would like to have a light set (photo but no report), you can do that for a donation; the amount is up to you. If your donation is for $2 or more, you will also be entered into a drawing for a regular vigil light setting with full report, to be set after I reopen in my new location. Use the “note to seller” box as you are checking out to give me your petition for your light setting (I need full names of all people involved; I am sorry, but I CANNOT deal with photographs for this donation-based service – petitions only). If you miss the text box to enter your petition/names, then wait for the acknowledgment email and send the info as a response to that instead.

I choose the type and color of light – you just send me names and petition and I will set a small standalone (not glass-encased) dressed, fixed candle for your petition. I am about to move, so I want to use those candles I have in stock but I do not want to order anything I run out of until I get relocated, so you may get a taper, votive, candle of unusual size or shape, etc (but you will NOT get a glass vigil for this service). It is up to what I have. Candles may burn for anywhere from ~2 hours to ~12 or more hours, depending on candle type and flame behavior.

Visit the mirror blog for paypal buttons to enter.

*The usual handling time applies for sale items, and since the point here is to raise funds, I may combine your multiple purchases into one shipment even though you placed them individually (but I may not – it depends on if they come in together). 

RAFFLE and SALE, for June Headwashings / spiritual cleansing event fundraiser

three limited edition auctions for half-ounce bottles of oil

I rarely do auctions, and if you shop with me you know I don’t do half-ounce bottles of oil at this time.

Right now, you have a chance to get a limited-edition half-ounce bottle of St. Michael, St. Gerard, or St. Jude oil at a fraction of the cost of a two-dram bottle. 

And don’t forget that nearly all my regular in-stock items are listed at bonanza, usually at a significant discount from eBay. The plan is to keep the bonanza store fully stocked and to only stock one of a kind jewelry, custom stuff, and a basic array of commonly-requested oils, salts, etc at eBay.  Every month it seems like, they introduce a new measure to make life harder and more expensive for small sellers, and they are about to make doing business on ebay even more difficult and expensive, yet again, in June, which will result in yet ANOTHER price increase if I’m to stay afloat.  I don’t like raising my prices on y’all when my material cost doesn’t go up and the cost of doing business is related to third-party site overhead and is avoidable.  So I remain confirmed in my intention to move stock and business off eBay. I’m always happy to list something for you if you don’t want to learn your way around another site, but I just can’t afford to keep a full inventory at eBay anymore. They have made it nearly impossible for me to make a profit on smaller items like medals, oils, and bath salts, so you will not be able to find everything you could want there past this summer.  And, I’m still waiting on the web guy to finish the final tweaks on the new website store that I have been promising for over six months – it has not been abandoned, just ran into some problems.  It will eventually have a full inventory list of oils, salts, and powders as well, though the eBay store will always have custom stuff and jewelry and the occasional auction (auctions are my "gift" to y’all – I almost always lose money on them, but I’m so grateful to you guys for sticking with me even though I spend so much time bitching about eBay that I like to do them every once in a while to say "thanks" – because I am fully aware I couldn’t do any of this store stuff without y’all).

I’m out of town now and will be back Sunday late, and life should be back to normal by Tuesday.  I should be coming back with a new batch of dirt dauber nest, hopefully some new bones, and a new batch of chicken feet which should be ready to go in a week or two.

Happy hoodooing!


store and site stock news/updates re. eBay and Bonanza.com

eBay came pretty close to hitting "the last straw" with me a few weeks ago when they gigged me for listing a prohibited item, removed the listing, and docked my "policy compliance" rating down to "low" (which endangers my power seller status and makes my fees higher and goes on my permanent record in case they ever want to kick me off one day).  The offending listing was not in fact prohibited and I was not in violation of any policy whatsoever, but attempts to get a human being to use a brain cell on this matter were doomed.  Here’s how it worked:

I got an email saying my Five Around the Fifties bath salts were removed due to the listing being for a prohibited item. In the portion of the form letter that was customized to tell you what prohibition you violate, it said "salvia divinorum may not be sold on eBay."  Since none of my listings mention salvia divinorum, I was perplexed and picked up the phone.  I was assured by a very nice but completely impotent customer service person that he would look into it and let me know what was up (and if you know me at all, you know that I have to be pretty pissed off to pick up the telephone if email is an option).  A week later I called again, as I’d had no return call.  I’m deferred again.  They finally get back to me with an email. Here is the glorious computerized, search-form-enabled, utterly freakin’ stupid and illogical manner in which my bath salt listing gets removed:

the Bonanza store / booth and FREE BOTTLE OF OIL offer

New things at Bonanza. (Though by "new" I mostly mean "newly imported from ebay" rather than "never seen before."  eBay has seriously, seriously pissed me off this last week or so, and I just don’t think I can keep selling lower-cost stock there, such as oils and bath salts. It’s just not worth their fees and trouble anymore, not for inexpensively-priced stock items, sigh…)

Almost all the things at Bonanza are cheaper than they are at eBay. Plus, you get one free bottle of hoodoo condition oil (your choice of any regularly priced oil) with any purchase totaling $10 or more for the *entire month of January.*  Just leave me a note in the "note to seller" or "instructions to merchant" box when you check out through paypal telling me what to send (traditional hoodoo oils are those priced at $5.34 on bonanza).

*free bottle of hoodoo oil* offer at Bonanza.com

Karma Zain Spiritual Supplies is now on Bonanza.com as well as eBay and the still-in-progress (sigh) web store.

From now through Saturday, December 11, anyone who makes a qualifying purchase at my store at Bonanza will receive a free bottle of hoodoo condition or dressing oil, a free bottle of voodoo oil, or a free bottle of esoteric oil of their choice.  Qualifying purchases are those that total $10 or more. 

Just tell me what bottle of oil to include with your order, either through the Bonanza messaging system, or else in the "note to seller"/"instructions to merchant" box on the paypal payment page.  The only oils that are excluded from this offer are Ultimate oils (the ones with diamond dust and gold in them), Plagues of Egypt oil, and Black Cat Bone oil.[*]

This serves a few purposes – one is to help me get familiar with how things work on Bonanza from the seller end (I’ve made some purchases on there already, but haven’t sold anything yet).  Another is to get y’all to help me check for any glitches or weirdness, and to make sure I have my settings set up properly for combined shipping (which I *always* offer – the settings on Bonanza booth are supposed to default to full shipping cost for first item and $1 per item after that, but you can as usual request an invoice before paying and, if you choose priority mail or one of your items is only available via priority mail, the other items that will fit in the box will ship for free).  Yet another is to solicit feedback on the booth’s appearance and operation (they’re called "booths" instead of "stores" on Bonanza), and to simply spread awareness of both Bonanza and my stuff on Bonanza.[**] 

The prices are lower, because their fees are lower, and that is a win-win situation for everybody!


[*] If you aren’t sure what types of oils I do or don’t carry, you can get a fairly full list of them at my website here.

[**] I know the items aren’t sorted into categories yet, and most of the listed categories are empty with all the products jumbled together in the "other" category right now. this is because I have to do the sorting manually after import, and I haven’t quite gotten the knack of what is a not-entirely-intuitive searching and filtering system in the business end of the listings.  Sorry – I know this makes it harder to find what you want.  But there is a search box. And I’m going to get this fixed as soon as I get caught up with the readings and consultation I owe (she says, faintly aware of a collective sigh from over there where the people who have been waiting are sitting, twiddling their thumbs, and wondering if they will have another birthday before I finish typing their damned reports).
