It may look beautiful but it certainly doesn’t smell it. Aptly named, the “corpse flower” grows in the rain forests of Sumatra, Indonesia, and releases a horrendous odour. The odour attracts insects which feed on deceased animals and lay their eggs in rotting meat. The plant requires 7-10 years of growth before eventually blooming for the first time. The odour is said to smell like a combination of limburger cheese, rotting fish, sweaty socks, human faeces, and a sweet floral scent.

  • Feeling a warm tingles across your skin.
  • Things go missing and then reappear somewhere else in your home. 
  • You see things out of the corner of your eyes.
  • Finding yourself participating in child like activities like skipping or swinging on a swing set.  
  • You come across random floral scented breezes. 
  • You make a habit of bringing nature inside. 
  • You find yourself admiring insects and when you find one in your home you set it free instead of squishing it. 
  • You find yourself stumbling over faerie circles. 
  • You are followed by a crow or raven.
  • You hear mysterious giggling. 
  • You find large patches of four-leaf clovers.

  • Milk and Honey
  • Anything small and shiny

Water. The floating body in a state of semi-levitation. Lungs expand in deep breaths of salty air. This is where I find you.
   
Water. Parched lips licked by wetted tongue. Coolness lingers in the back of throat. From esophagus to stomach, a wholesome sensation. Invigorating water. This is where I find you.
   
Floral scented shampoo; soap, essence of passion fruit, seeping down feminine pulchritude, taking with it worries of the day. Wet hair. Closed eyes and a smile; face raised up towards gushing streams of water. Rejuvenating water. This is where I find you.
   
Garden sprinkler created rainbows exist only for a moment, but the memories of jumping around them with my first dog will last a lifetime. Bare feet in the soggy grass. Muddy toes. Daddy chases me with a hose; before returning inside there is water. Rinsing water. This is where I find you.
   
Rarely in my life have I seen the whitest of beaches, even rarer have I witnessed the sight of an ocean so blue. My eyes gaze into infinity, and I ponder. Water. Infinite water. This is where I find you.

Sometimes I feel like the majority of me consists of you.”

roll-on perfume scents by ripeshop

it’s february, followers!! we made it to month two … woot :) let’s kick things off with some sweet beauty-themed finds that would be GREAT for valentine’s day! ripeshop’s roll-on perfumes come in unique, special scents that make wonderfully thoughtful presents. and, as always, LOVE the product photography.

She wore a flowing, pale peach gown that cinched at the waist, her hair long enough now to be piled onto her head in elaborate knots. Truly, she was an image of feminine innocence, which was likely why Hux had singled her out amongst the shrewd women donning slinky black.

Rey saw him before her unwitting partner did, eyes rounding in panic when she felt the rage that licked at his boots like hellfire. Her glossy lips parted, breath hitching as he stepped behind her, one gloved hand snaring the wrist that rested at Hux’s shoulder while the other glided down her spine, prying Hux away to grip her backside with obvious possession.

White-hot anger crossed Hux’s face, his jaw dropping in shock at his sudden intrusion. Kylo ignored the other man, growling as he buried his nose into the crook of her neck from behind, gulping in the sweet, floral scent of her perfume. He preferred the salt of her sweat.

Chapter 4 of Bathwater

(honestly i just wanted to draw her dress)

Aphrodite, She who smiles next to you when you smile at yourself in the mirror and catch your reflection in a shop window and stare for a moment, enraptured by your own beauty.

Aphrodite, She who sings with you in the shower while your lather your hair and soap your body, lavishing in the floral and warm honey scents as well.

Aphrodite, She who encourages your extra hours of sleep on your days off, whispering things like “every Queen needs her beauty sleep” in your ear until you give in.

Aphrodite of self love.
Aphrodite of self love.
Aphrodite of self love.

Laundry Magick!

I was just groaning about how I need to do laundry today, and I despise doing laundry, but then I thought, why not take advantage of it? Doing laundry is an excellent method of cleansing as is, but here are some thoughts I had as to how you can make this (annoying) chore more witchy!

1. Choose detergents and fabric softener scents that correspond to your intent! A floral scent for clarity, a “fresh” scent for comfort, a tropical scent for rejuvination…. get creative!

2. Pour your detergent in a clockwise fashion to promote your intent, be it calmness, comfort, energy, good rest…. Likewise, pour it anticlockwise to banish exhaustion, bad dreams, or general negativity.

3. Alternative to number 2, infuse your detergent with your intent before pouring it in. I created a little chant you can use!

“Cleanse this cloth
in all its hues
and take the bad away
In its place
put calm and grace
and energy for the days”

Feel free to create your own ideas for laundry magick and add to this short list! I’d love to see what sort of things you might come up with. Now if you’ll excuse me I’ve got some laundry to do. 👕👖💦

“The Last Unicorn” and “Lady Amalthea” have been added as perfumes to Siren Song Elixirs. 

  • “The Last Unicorn” - this blend represents the last Unicorn, ageless and graceful, living alone in the forest that she protects where nothing ever dies and the flowers are always in bloom. The rich scent of blooming roses and lush pink peonies mixes with the calming notes of vanilla, the sturdy oak trees of the forest, and the ancient oud woods. 
  • “Lady Amalthea” - Jasmine and Orange blossom give this fragrance a clean, delicate, floral scent with sweet green notes of moss that linger softly. This scent is very feminine, not powdery, and it will last a very long time.

Other fragrances currently available;

Dragon Age Solas, Fen’Harel, Dread Wolf, Dragon Age Dorian, Dragon Age Cole,  Dragon Age Josephine, Dragon Age Leliana, Dragon Age Krem, Labyrinth’s Jareth, Labyrinth’s Sarah. 

Coming soon - Dragon Age Sera, Dragon Age Cullen
