    Scents for doula work and birthing

    This. Also I was so sick to my stomach that pretty much every smell made me want to hurl while I was in labor. Unless it's rubbing alcohol I would not use it in the room. I remember a nurse was chewing some sort of mint gum….and it was just awful. However that was just me. I have always thought that jasmine was very calming. I prefer it as my bedroom scent over lavender. Again that's just me. I agree with this.

    Do you like s'mores and s'mores-flavored things?: sorta What's the neatest freebie you've gotten? It can be cool or thoughtful or just totally unexpected, and not limited to BPALdom.: I was frimped am emtire bar of Sugar Skull soap Would you enjoy receiving cute but useful items like colorful kitchen utensils/gadgets, or bento supplies? (boxes, chopsticks, accessories, etc?) What about things like spice mixes (homemade, or Penzey's for example): yes, but no chopsticks or bento box stuff Do you like cute, seasonal or fluffy PJ bottoms? Like they sell at Target, Old Navy (they have had cute Halloween ones!) If so, what size do you wear?: I do! XL - XXL What kind of chocolate do you like? Nuts, no nuts, white,dark, etc?: I actually don't love chocolate, but when I eat it, I prefer nuts, and dark chocolate. I do love Ritter chocolate, though. I live near a Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, and Penzeys! What does your little heart desire from any or all of these places? I'm not sure! Are home made foods acceptable or does the idea of eating strange mailed food disturb you?: This is ok. I just gave you $20 and sent you into a "has everything" store ala Walmart and told you that you have to come out having spent it all, and none of it on anything you need. What would you buy? Be as specific as possible! : Foot repair cream, a ritter chocolate with hazelnuts bar, hair ties, and a lip gloss. What kind of cuisines do you like? (I mentioned this in my ?aire but curious what my witch may like)And, what are your favorite restaurants? Mexican, Italian. Olive Garden, IHOP, Texas Roadhouse, I'm from Canada - is there anything specifically a witchee might like that is only available here? : Maple syrup. what are your "fandoms" and would you like a t-shirt from TeeFury if an appropriate one came up?: Poe, Nightmare Before Christmas, zombies, werewolves, Where the Wild Things are, Beetlejuice, some Lovecraft, some Harry Potter, True Blood, Charlie Brown, Do you have an eReader and if so which one? I use my husband's Nook. Do you like candles, or tart burners, or something? If so, what's your favorite scent to burn?: I do, but I don't use them often, because I have a toddler. But; when I do burn them, I prefer autumny scents. Marzipan: nope Muslin reusable squares: Sure Do you drink alcohol and if so, would you be OK with your witch sending you homemade infused vodka? Also, does your state allow alcohol to be shipped through the mail (for example, PA doesn't): I don't know if my state allows it, and I'm breastfeeding anyway, so... probably better to not! Is there anyone else in your house (kids, pets, partner) that would really appreciate a small gift being included for them in the switchwitchy haul so they don't feel left out?: My partner doesn't have a preference, I don't think. Though; all candy and food goodies do get shared with him, unless specified otherwise. My littles are pretty little, so I don't think they'd really notice, but if you would like to include them, feel free. My cats; I'm sure, would appreciate the beloved catnip, or a toy, or something. If your witch is a knitter, crocheter or sewer, is there a particular type of garment you would love to receive (hat, scarf, wrap, cowl, socks, fingerless gloves, arm warmers etc)?: I love knitted/crocheted things. I don't go much for fingerless gloves, or arm warmers. I do NOT like hats, at all. They make my head feel too warm. Wraps, and scarves, are wonderful. Bear in mind; I live in the desert though. Blankets are ALWAYS used, though. If you get me (or a fellow Aussie, if there are any playing this round) as a witch or witch's minion, would you like to try some Australian specialties, such as TimTams (delicious chocolately cookies), Caramello Koalas (koala shaped chocolates filled with gloopy caramel), Australian native spices or anything like that?: I've never had a TimTam! That would be nice to try. Or Caramello Koalas! Since it's been mentioned several times, and I've also offered to nacho witch some, would you you like to receive wild rice and or maple syrup? I promise to include recipe ideas with the wild rice. I have 5 bushels of tomatoes sitting in the kitchen right now that are supposed to turn into red sauce tomorrow, so would anyone like a basic red sauce (spaghetti sauce) to make its way to them? Would you be interested in having a bat adopted in your name?: YES How would you feel about a taste of (insert witch location here) box?: Sure! Some of your favorite artists? Classic and modern?: Uh. I'm not into art a whole lot. If you could have an image or certain subject painted for you on any type of "canvas" (on a box, on paper, on a canvas, and so on) - could you point your witch to some of these images?: not really me, thanks. Is there a GC scent that's been on your list for ages but keeps falling off the bottom of your order because of the LEs? : Ozymandias! I've been getting into indie nail polish brands recently. What's your favorite indie brand of nail polish? Or what's your favorite mainstream brand of nail polish? Or are you not big on polish?: I don't really do nail polish, either. Stuffed things: yea or nay?: Yay! New Question: mix-in-a-jar? How to you feel about cookie or cake or soup mixes that come in jars and you just add, like, an egg or water or what have you? : YAY! Would you be interested in beer, wine, or other specialty beverages from your Witch's area?: Likely not; re: Breast feeding. Are there any crafts/skills you've wanted to learn but haven't gotten around to? And if so, would you be interested in supplies and tutorials?: I have no talent for crafts. Who here would be happy to get a lil' sumthin sumthin from Adagio Teas?: Don't like tea. Do you Ravelry? And if so, what's your handle over there? Would you be interested in gift patterns from your queue?: Nope I live near this very cool Retro store (retrodrygoods.com) (you can order online too) - are there things from it that would make you squee if your witch sent them?: no thanks Who likes Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kisses?: I DO! I DO! What does your kitchen look like? Colors/style?: I haven't really done much with my kitchen. I want to; just haven't yet. Witchee, what are your favorite quotes? I have many! I'll get back to this. Put your iPod/MP3 player/what-have-you on random and list the first 10 songs it plays! I don't have any of these. So; how about I list 10 of my favorite songs? I'll get back to this, too. [/color What's one random thing you really like and one random thing you really dislike?: I dislike junk mail, and I like... uh... heh. I'm not sure. Are there any herbs that you haven't been able to lay hands on that I could send you? There's an herbal shop I really like here in NYC called Flower Power (flowerpower.net) that has quite a wide selection: Nope If there are no "witchy" shops near you, is there anything I can pick up for you from Enchantments?: Not that I can think of. Hey Witchee! I want to send you a delivery. It could be cupcakes from a local bakery, it could be a singing hugging bear-a-gram, it could be a bouquet of flowers. But it will be something that you need to be there to receive. a) Are you OK with "special deliveries"? *waggles eyebrows* B..) Is the address in your questionnaire the best place to reach you for said deliveries? c) If the delivery requires a phone number (as say, some florists do) would you be OK with that information being tracked down by your Witch or asked of you anonymously?: I'd really rather you just asked for my phone number... 'cus that's kinda creepy... no hugging bears. No singing sunshines, etc, though. What are some things you are OK with receiving gently used or homemade, and some things you absolutely do not want if they are gently used or homemade?: I'm ok with pretty much anything gently used/homemade. And now a new question: I live near a Mast General Store (mastgeneralstore.com). It has lots of vintage-y toys, southern foods (jams, jellies, spices) and vintage candy. Is there anything I can get for you?: See my Amazon wishlist. Do you have any Fall or Halloween traditions?: Not really Ninjas or Pirates?: pirates I have an extra room spray and 2 extra bath oils (one Cephalopod, one Exhibit Hall Fatigue) from Dragon*Con - would anybody like a decant?: Me! The room spray, please! Witchee, would you like it if I made you a "mix tape" of songs that I think you might like? And if so, would you prefer mp3 or CD format?: Sure. CD. I know it is totally the wrong season (for most of us), but do you like/have space to garden? If so, what do you like to grow?: I do... but I didn't grow anything this year, and so it's totally unprepared, and I'm not sure I'll have them time to start planting when I need to. I'm about to be near a Lush store next week, is there anything you might like from there?: See my Amazon wishlist. Songs that you keep meaning to buy but never get round to it?: So, so many... Movies that you love but forgot to put in your questionaire?: Beetlejuice! Any favorite Bath & Body Works scents/products?: Nope Haus of Gloi is offering custom perfumes - would you like one? What would your ideal blend be?: See my Amazon Wishlist. Any Bath, Body or nutritional type items you would love to try from a Natural and Organic food store (similar to Whole Foods) that you don't buy because they are a bit too pricey?: I don't think so. OK, so those of you who said you wouldn't mind receiving (sneakily packaged!) beer or wine: Tell me of your taste preferences. Dry/sweet? Red/white? Lager/ale/porter/stout? Fruit? Spice? Hops? Sour (brettanomyces, etc)? NA Witchee, will you be gone from your normal mailing address at any point during the round?: No Are you a Disney fan or does even thinking about Disney make your head hurt?

No thanks. Do you lust after some new socks/tights?: Nope. CUSTOM-Made Pottery?? yea or nay? coffee mugs, rustic or more elegant? a set of bowls? soap dish? bird feeder? something alltogether different? and lastly, good colors for glazes...?: YES YES YES!!!! I would lovvvve!!! If you have cats, do they like catnip toys? If you have doggies, would they like a super-reinforced canvas toy with a squeaker in it?: I has cats. 2! 1 boy, 1 girl. Catnip fiends, I have. I'm sure they'd love to try out this rumored Kitty Demon Crack. If you have kids, what are they into?: I do. Two littles. My 21 month old is into trouble. He is my toddler tornado. Egads. He likes balls. Toy cars. Books, LOVES books. My 3 week old... likes boobs, blankets, and sleep. In fact; he enjoys boobs so much, I thought about getting him a boobie beanie. http://www.etsy.com/listing/105517967/boobie-beanie-crochet-boobie-beanie-baby?ref=sr_gallery_2&sref=sr_2742afd3523d41886dd6dce19235aeebc91af0aff6087f2e7e6cd11e08b1dae9_1348087202_14355893_hat&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_includes%5B0%5D=tags&ga_noautofacet=1&ga_search_query=boob+hat&ga_ref=related&ga_page=1&ga_view_type=gallery Like so.

Would you be interested in BPTP CANDY?: Sure forum buddies?: I have a lot of forum buddies! Best off looking to Dymphna, Evanesce, and MotherKat, though.

Gum, hard candy, soft candy, or none of the above?: Gum, yes. Hard candy, yes. Soft candy, yes. I do not, however, like gummy candy. Coffee, tea, hot chocolate, cider, or none of the above?: Coffe, no. Tea, no. Hot chocolate, yes. Cider, yes. HOWEVER; I only like the cold sort of cider. I find cold, chai tea acceptable, too. If you are on Livejournal, would you appreciate LJ stuff like paid time, custom userheads, stuff like that? If you are NOT on LJ but are on other sites that have similar paid-for services (Flickr, for example?) would you, and what are those sites/etc?: I -have- a Livejournal, but it's strictly for my decant circles only. I don't journal with it. So, no. I don't think that'd be useful. I don't do Flickr either.
  3. Yay! I'm glad! Glad I could be of help. The USPS is uh... really... not all on the same page with everything!
  4. The thing I've been told with the USPS, is international shipments will take 7 - 10 business days. It could be that the April 7th CnS is just... movin' slower for some reason, I suppose. Then, the USPS has also told me that some post offices just don't scan packages at all, and so there wouldn't be tracking information for that package. I mailed one thing last month. It took 10 for it arrive and that was US - US shipping, in addition, half of the post offices it went through, didn't scan the package. Maybe give it a couple more days and then contact the Lab?

    Hideous Heart

    I got this today, and mmm.. In the Bottle: CHERRY. OMG, cherry. Maybe alcohol? Wet On Skin: Cinnamon. Red hots. Dry On Skin: Spiced cherries. I love this. Absolutely love it. I'll be hoarding bottles of Hideous Heart. My husband likes it too, which works for me. I keep sniffing my wrist. Mmm... this is soooo good.

    Death Cap

    This is so lovely. It's a dry, herbal smelling oil. It's earthy, a little dirty. I love this. LOVE. It's in my top ten.
  8. Fright


    I don't get grape, or bubble gum out of this. It's very.. soft on me. Very.. faint. Only lasted maybe 3 hours or so. I got a pale kind of floral out of it. Kind of a maybe aquatic to it? So lovely for the summer I think. So very lovely for the summer. I adore this one. I'm glad I've got a second imp of it headed my way.

    The Smiling Spider

    I love me some clove. Hell, I love the spicy smells. I was dying to try this. I ripped into my package and coveted the tiny bottle. This is so nice, and so just.. yum. I could bathe in this. It's just so, warm and, kind of cozy? This is one of my favourites. I did pair it with some Saw Scaled Viper. Luscious. Delicious. So tasty.

    Mme. Moriarty, Misfortune Teller (2006)

    I'm not sure how to describe this. It's warm. Spicy. Slightly mysterious. A touch creepy, maybe? It smells so odd. I remember thinking, "Mm.. smells nice.. who is that..?" and then I blushed like an idiot and realized it was the Mme. Moriarty. I don't know how to put into words how this smells, but it smells.. nice. I do love my impie of this..

    Green Tree Viper

    I love Snake Oil. I love mint smells. This was the perfect combination for me. I almost wet myself when I put it on. It's cool on the skin. It's very minty and vanilla-y on me. It's sooo lovely. It doesn't last very long, sadly. Not near the stay-power that Saw Scaled Viper has, but still, sooo lovely. Soft, and faint.

    Saw-Scaled Viper

    This one got quite a mixed reaction from me. I wanted it badly. It came in. I sniffed it in the bottle. My thoughts? "Christ on a cracker! Wtf?! EW! NO! Why?! I might cry.. maybe I imagined it.. *small sniff* OH! NO! I DID NOT! Is that.. that.. WOOD?! WOOD?! Did Beth stuff an invisible tree in this sucker?" I promptly stuck it back in with the impies and twitched. I picked it up tonight, at, 1:10 in the morning. I figured if it's horrible, only me and the boyfriend would know. Wait, no, just me. He's glued to Neverwinter Nights 2. Just me. I put a little on my wrist. The cassia wafted up to my nose and I got twitchy. I held my breath. Bit my tongue. I held my arm away from my body. I waited five minutes, and slowly, carefully pulled my wrist up to my nose. It smelled GOOD. VERY spicy. VERY cinnamony. I LIKE this. This is NICE. Mmm. Yum. I may defenitly have to invest in a 5ml! Actually, it goes quite nice with The Smiling Spider. ETA: For spelling. Shame on me. Even with spell check.
  13. Fright


    I sniffed the bottled and crinkled my nose. I remember thinking, "I dunnoh about this one.. I guess it'll teach me to not buy oils just because I like the NAME and the DESCRIPTION. Not based off the notes I like in the bottle..! I'm glad I don't work today.." I put it one, surprisingly, it was nice. It's very floral-y on me. Very green. Definately nice for the spring. I think I'll be keeping this one..
  14. Fright


    I fell in love with this one right away. Cherry and cloves. Nothing better. And it is ALL cherry and spice on me. It's a warm, dark smell. It lasts for hours on my skin. This is one I'd buy a big bottle of.
  15. Fright


    I was very hesitant to try this, because in the bottle it smells very masculine. But, on my person, it doesn't smell too masculine. I definately get a pine smell and the cloves out of this one. I don't think I'll buy a big bottle of it, but I will probably keep an imp or two of it around.
