New Formulas

Four new oils available on ebay at the website, (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.
