Sensual and beautiful combination of woody and floral, this is a complex concoction. The rare, dark resinous heartwood, Oud wood, originates from South-East Asia and is widely sort after by perfumers across the world. Infused with oils of patchouli, nutmeg, saffron and palmrosa, this indulgent and rich blend of exotic spices and delicate rose and geranium florals is the perfect accompaniment sensual love and self-love rituals. Several of these oils are considered aphrodisiacs, to really enhance any rituals or spell crafting, bathing or to add an atmosphere that Aphrodite herself would approve of.
Dark, mysterious and bewitching, this is my best seller and a Black Moon Botanica favourite. This is a beautifully warm, comforting scent. Dreamy and sensual, this warm fragrance has soft notes of frankincense, tuberose, myrrh, violet and amber. Earthy base notes of patchouli and cedar with a hint of jasmine and bergamot round out this sweet but balanced scent. This is one I would recommend for calming and comforting, particularly in times of trauma or grief, or just whenever you want to feel soothed and cosy. Rituals for self love, emotional healing, relaxation and to bring peace and harmonious energies.
Hecate Queen of Witches
Richly evocative, this complex scent is both earthy and warm, sweet but spicy. Named for the goddess Hecate, associated with the darker side of the human experience, such as witchcraft, knowledge of herbs and poisonous plants and creatures that roam the darkness of night. It has been remarked, “Hecate is more at home on the fringes than in the centre. Intrinsically ambivalent and polymorphous, she straddles conventional boundaries and eludes definition.” Combining woody notes of mugwort, patchouli, sandalwood, with light smoke of incense and pink peppercorn, and a creamy base of amber and vanilla.
Isis Divine Feminine
Rich, exotic and sophisticated, this is a luxurious blend that combines sandalwood, jasmine with warm amber. The subtle addition of vanilla mixes with unique notes of balsam copaiba, grapefruit and lotus. Said to be worn by Cleopatra, jasmine blooms at night, which adds to the mystery and allure, and connects the flower to feminine energy of the Moon. Created with the Egyptian goddess Isis in mind, this is perfect for all rituals working with goddesses, the Divine Feminine, attracting physical and spiritual love and for increasing creativity.
Developed to help navigate the trying times of Mercury Retrogrades, but lovely any time. The grounding patchouli blends with the uplifting citrus of bergamot. This scent is designed to both keep you grounded and supported while lifting your mood when things are going awry! Heady jasmine, white gardenia and vetiver round out this best selling scent. Use during retrogrades, to combat stress or gain focus and direction.
Stimulating and fresh, this is the perfect scent to burn while setting New Moon intentions or when in need of invigorating energies. Top notes of zesty lemongrass and limes lead into warming ginger root and nutmeg, with a hint of fresh eucalyptus. Base notes round out the scent with cedar wood and geranium. Clean, warm and stimulating, this “spa-like” scent works well with ritual baths and when doing rituals entered around uplifting, enlivening or rejuvenating energies.
Queen of Scots
A top seller, this is an intensely rich and layered scent, inspired by the charismatic Mary Queen of Scots. Like the woman herself, it’s a scent that is both nuanced and bold, leading with crisp bergamot and lemon and warming sandalwood and frankincense, with notes of eucalyptus, lavender and geranium. The base of this scent is rich and full with cedar, amber, and warm spices. A strong fragrance that fills the whole house with its complexity and charm. Most customers describe it as a more “masculine” scent with warming base notes. Use in rituals involving personal strength and boundary setting, self-belief and confidence.
The Thinning Veil
I developed this evocative scent for my own divination work and rituals involving the ancestors. Rich with sweet tobacco, warm clove and a hint of cognac. Smokey notes of oak, with the exceptionally rare orris root combine with vetiver and musk to create this beautifully complex blend. With oils that help to enhance both concentration and psychic and intuitive abilities, this is the candle I recommend for all divination work such Tarot, as well as any rituals working with ancestors or spirit. Also wonderful for meditation and relaxation.
Vigour & Vim
This is the scent for clean slates, new beginnings and all health-related rituals. A revitalising blend of lemon, orange and bergamot with a heart of juniper berry, rosemary, tea tree and pine. Jasmine, geranium and cedarwood finish off this fresh scent that is both cleansing and rejuvenating.
A firm customer favourite, Wild Abundance is created for rituals of manifestation and attracting abundance in all its forms. Delicately spicy and fresh with orange, cinnamon, clove. This scent mixes fresh fruit notes and a smooth base of patchouli and vanilla to round it out into a subtle scent that is neither too sweet nor overly zesty. Use whenever trying to attract prosperity, success or more abundance into your life.
Fresh, earthy and deeply evocative of the deep, dark woods. A rich, herbal fragrance dominated by pine alongside eucalyptus, cedar wood, cypress, sandalwood, and Siberian fir. This scent is inspired by the ancient Scots pine trees of the Highlands. Druids used to light large bonfires of Scots pine at the winter solstice to celebrate the passing of the seasons and to draw back the sun. Scots pine groves were to be approached and entered in silence and reverence, respectful of the gods and spirits of the wood. Perfect for grounding, rituals working with nature and when in need of the forest in your own home. Ideal for Yule and winter solstice, this smells of a grove of Christmas trees.
