    Revenant Rhythm

    When I'd tried this years ago in its 'BB' incarnation, it was unwearable for me. Since then, I've had kids, and my chemistry has changed enough that I've had to switch out almost all my oils. Now? Patch LOVES me, and this scent is freaking amazing. It's like patchouli and vanilla got together and had an ice cream baby, with hemp toppings At first the vanilla threatens to overtake it all in its ice cream form, but the longer I have it on, the earthier its getting. So glad I was able to snag a bottle!!

    Well then. So I've just discovered a new-found love for patchouli scents (changing chemistry due to age and past pregnancies maybe?), and was REALLY excited to try this one. I've never tried the hair gloss, so I can't compare it to that. BUT. I love this. LOOOOOOVE this. I can see where it seems a bit fruity, though that stage doesn't last long. It's a very sweet patchouli on me, with a bit of the earthiness. It's a bit strong to my nose if I bring my arm up to smell it, but the throw on it is fantastic. Something in it reminds me of my mom's tomato pincushions when I was a kid, and the smell of her sewing room. So to me this is new age shop combined with mom's sewing room. I think I'll be getting a LOT of use out of this one!
  3. Not sure if this is the right forum... So I LOOOOVE the smell of Tarot Judgement. But, I only have a bit of an imp of it, and I tend to favor it for ritual use. Is there anything else that smells like it? I don't even know what the notes are, for sure. Seems to be patch, but I dunno what else. Thank you for any help!

    Nasty Woman

    Finally getting around to *really* trying this one. It's all fig and honey and patch on me. It's much heavier than I usually wear, but I really like it.

    TKO Atmosphere Spray

    Oh. OH. Okay, I've never tried the oil, but I am in LOVE with this spray. I sprayed it once near my bed yesterday when I got it, and last night there was a bit on the corner of my quilt, and it made me so happy to just be breathing that in while going to sleep. I may have actually fallen asleep smiling. I sprayed it more actually on my bed today, and may spray my clothes with it, too. The smell is just lovely. It reminds me VERY much of Snowblind (my favorite atmo, before this) - vanilla and mint, mixed with lavender. SO good, and lovely, and peaceful and... I need more of this. I'm going to add my voice to the 'GC Please!' call. I'm so glad this was made into an atmo, and that I was lucky enough to get a bottle

    switch witch 2016

    Hi Witch!! Here's this years edition of the Switch Witch help blog Past entries may or may not be applicable at this point, I've changed quite a bit in some ways since the last time I did this. Some general stuffs - WISHLISTS - my bpal wishlist is in my signature. I also have... Amazon - https://amzn.com/w/SQH5WXN77PBP (I'm not sure how that works, if you can see ALL my lists from that link - I have a few different categories there (wish list, books, art...). Etsy - https://www.etsy.com/people/zombiewench/favorites/items-i-love?ref=favs_index_1 I'm not expecting a whole lot, since I'm handmaking everything for my Witchee due to a serious lack of funds, but I love Switch Witch - I've made some really wonderful friends because of it! -What would you like from the Motherhood update? - (In no particular order...) Dinner at the Diviner's Hut, Good Morning London, Heel, My Little Grotesque, Outlaw, Perfect Fifths, Stonehenge at Dusk, The Great Python Snake, Vampire Night at the Movies. If I had to pick ONE scent to try...Probably Outlaw. But Perfect Fifths, Stonehenge, Vampire Night are all up there, too. Knitted stuff - It kind of depends...i'm in Florida so won't get a whole lot of use out of anything. Beer - I don't drink a whole lot anymore, though I wouldn't be opposed to some fun (lighter) varieties. Caramel - YUM! Though I usually do better with it *in* things, I have a lot of dental work that doesn't play nice with super chewy things. What types of things do you like to wear? - I'm REALLY into boho/gypsy/faerie type stuff, and things in bright colors. My closet doesn't always reflect that at the moment though, I'm slowly working on updating it! Mostly I just like *fun* clothes. I get envious of the fact that my 3 year old daughter gets to wear fun bright colorful sparkly poofy lacy stuff, and it's hard for me to find anything like that in adult sizes! And booze? - I tend to like sweet wines. And rum. My favorite rum is Kraken. Would you be interested in home made food items? - Sure! Breads and cookies are always good Would you be interested in project bags/pouches? - Meh, I have so many bags already. Are you allergic to any fiber or do you know what kind of yarn you prefer? - I have a slight allergy to wool. Would you want a quilted pot holder? - Sure! Do you have any prefered flavour of shortbread? - There's flavors?? What are you interested in from the recent BPAL and BPTP updates? (Lilith, Lunacy, etc.) - I listed the Motherhoods I'm interested in earlier. I'm not interested in any of the Fatherhoods (which is a first), but I DO want the Coconut Meat SN and Starstruck Libra like WHOA. Those are such big needs it's a little ridiculous!! Would you like hibiscus seeds? - If they'll grow well in Florida, then sure! Is there anything you'd particularly like to get from the UK? - Can you buy me a house there? Um...my favorite place in England is Stratford-upon-Avon, we spent a few weeks there when I was 18 and I freaking LOVED it. So something fun from there would be really awesome! Is there anything you would like to get from Japan? - Some fun Disney stuff that we don't have here, or some neat Sailor Moon goodies (Chibi-usa, Diana, Chibi-Chibi, Dead Moon Circus, and Sailor Cosmos are my favorites!) Does anyone like fleece character hats? Like these: http://wonderlandonl...like-fleece-hat? What kinda characters would you like to see? Eh, I wouldn't get much use out of anything like that in FL. Do you like things with Pumpkin (or Pumpkin Spice?) Sometimes Socks/sockdreams/etc: I could use some fun bright footie socks, like what you wear with sneakers, but that's about it. I have so many fun socks I'm already not wearing! Anyone a nail polish fan? What colors interest you? I am, though I don't wear it much anymore, with 2 little kids I usually just can't be bothered to deal with it. I could use a good basic shimmery turquoise though, and I tend to be a sucker for anything holographic, the more holo the better! Do you decorate for Halloween all year? If not, what level of decor do you have for Halloween? I don't. And I am sorely lacking in the Halloween decoration department! Indoor/outdoor Halloween decorations? What do you do, and what would you prefer to receive? Indoor is better right now (my next house WILL have better outdoor space to decorate!). What's your preferred Halloween decor style: classic/traditional (skulls, pumpkins, bats), kitchsy/cute, retro, elegant/Victorian, horror/macabre? Kitchsy/cute! And retro! What's your candy preference? I like chocolate and coconut (like mounds bars), and salted chocolate anything is good, too. Okay, and peanut butter and chocolate. Do you have an Etsy wish list, and if so, what's your user name there? I do, zombiewench is my name there! candles, wax melts/tarts? Eh, sometimes? I like the idea of candles, but don't actually use them very much. Tokyo Milk? Yea or Nay? No? I've never tried anything from there. One company is enough for me lol. If you are ok with knitted things, what colors do you like? I tend to like cool colors (and turquoise is my favorite). Also rainbows, though I tend to like not straight traditional colors - like replace red with magenta, blue with turquoise... If striping, what two (or more) colors together? I love black and white striped stuff. And, though I don't usually like the colors separately, I LOOOVE orange and magenta together. If you want yarn, what colors do you want? Anything fun and bright is awesome. Are you interested in fabric? Again, what colors, what themes, etc. Again, anything fun and bright. Nothing flowery unless it's funky. What are your tea and/or coffee preferences? Loose leaf / whole bean or bagged / ground? Do you have a favorite type? Flavor? Retailer? Nope, nope nope. If you could receive one handmade item - everything from knitted or crocheted gloves and scarves to sewn bags to fanart or original art, what would you prefer? Whatever my witch wants to make. What are your favorite fandoms, if any? Oh booooy... Blizzard games - especially World of Warcraft and Hearthstone. Bioshock - I have a large collection of Big Daddies, but desperately need a Big Sister. Portal. Brian/Wendy Froud (I have her set of 3 faerie dolls, and a bunch of their books). Harry Potter. I'm really into DC Superhero Girls right now. Neil Gaiman and Amanda Palmer (together and separate) (does that count as a fandom? lol). Harley Quinn. There's probably more, hah. Skincare- do you use a particular routine? What products would you absolutely not use? I use Lush products. Pretty much the only stuff I've found that works well for me. Bath/shower products? Lush, and Yves Rochers. BPTP products? Pre-owned okay? Sure! Not a big fan of bath oil or hair gloss though. Essential oils and aromatherapy oils- yay, or nay? Eh. Favorite animal? Unicorn? Phoenix? Mermaid? Do you have a kindle? If so... Would you be interested in Kings Game by Lisa Millraney? Sure! I have so many books on my TBR list, and another huge list that I want to buy/borrow, but as someone who writes and self-publishes (under pen names), I love supporting others in groups I'm in The second part of the Haus of Gloi update is live tomorrow (the 25th)- is there anything you're interested in? No thanks I'm going to the NY Renaissance Faire tomorrow- anything you'd like me to look for? Take me with you?? Lol. I love Ren Faires! I can't think of anything specific, but I would probably love most anything from a Faire. Do you celebrate Mabon? Would you like "witchy" or pagan decorations and objects? For example, pentacle wall hangings, mabon poppets, corn dollies, ritual candles, etc? My religious stuff is so weird right now. We're Methodist, but my background is kind of all kinds of things, and I'm currently reading a book about how both paganism and Christianity can work together. So I'm not actually celebrating holidays yet, but may get to that point in the future? I know, odd answer. Anyone hankering for Craftsy (http://www.craftsy.com) classes? Through tomorrow all classes are $20 or under. No thanks. Would you be interested in any of the following: jigsaw puzzles; puzzle books (like word searches or crossword puzzles or suduko); coloring books; card games; board games? Feel free to elaborate on preferences for any of the above! I love that kind of stuff, but it's not always practical with small kids who eat things in the house. Plus I just don't have time. Elements and Artifacts? I didn't see anything that really caught my eye this time around. Tarot cards/oracle decks - yay or nay? If yay, do you already have any? Which ones? I love tarot decks, and have a small collection! I have...So Below (my favorite deck, and the only one I've ever been able to read, even if I don't read well, lol), Aquarian Tarot, Universal Fantasy Tarot, Shadowscapes, Penny Dreadful, Fantod (Edward Gorey, not exactly tarot, but still in my collection!), and the Amanda Palmer deck, from a Kickstarter a while back. I also have both sets of the Faerie Oracle cards from Brian Froud. You have now also made me go look at tarot decks, and I've added some interesting looking ones to my amazon wishlist Cryptozoology/cryptids (Big Foot, lake monsters, chupacabra, etc.) - yay or nay? If yay, any favourites? I don't really pay attention to a lot of that stuff, but sure! It could be fun

    French Vanilla

    Tahitian vanilla bean with a slight custard undertone. The custard is STRONG in this, at least on me. The vanilla is a bit on the plastic side, but I don't mind. It's a VERY rich scent, but I can see it layering well with other scents for sure! I like it, but my husband REALLY likes it, and he's not always a vanilla fan
  8. zombiewench

    Walking the Prime Meridian

    I haven't skin tested this yet, but wet I kind of love it. It's rainy and oceany and green with just a hint of wood. It's like Jolly Roger and Caliban had a booze-free baby. It's really lovely!

    Use this oil with black and white candles to cut ties from negative people and unhealthy relationships. It can be used talismanically with chessboard rituals, image magic, and poppets. I've recently come to realize that a pair of friends I had once been very close to, are in fact fairly toxic and Not Good People - though they hid it well for a while. As they are part of a larger group of my friends as well, I've been wrestling with how to get them out of my life while causing as little drama and awkwardness for everyone else as possible. Today I used the Scissors oil with a white candle. I wrote down a list of behaviors I want out of my life, and then I wrote down their names in particular, and added 'anyone who has the behaviors on my list' as well. I lit the candle, burned the papers, and then actually took a pair of scissors and made a cutting motion over the candle, to symbolize cutting the ties. While I won't know yet if that will help with those people, as the candle burnt down I felt emotionally lighter. My intent had been to not only cut out people who had those behaviors, but to get rid of any I had picked up along the way myself. So far I'm pleased. Time will tell on the other issue, but this oil just felt right to be using, and I'm very glad I have it. The scent is pleasant - very herbal, with a cinnamon-ish note to it. While this is not an oil I'd wear just because of what it's used for, the scent I actually really enjoyed.

    I can't believe I hadn't reviewed this yet, this has been one of my favorites for a few years now! I went through two imps, and finally managed to snag a bottle, and I am one happy wench right now! This is all sweet lemon cake, frosting, and play-doh on me. And I LOVE IT. It's a very 'happy' scent to me, and is easily in my top 5!

    Love's Philosophy

    To me, this smells like a Strawberry Shortcake doll. Like, exactly like one. I like it, but I'm not sure I love it. But I am very glad I got to try it! Edit: Okay wasn't going to add this because it went away fairly quick, but now I'm also getting toothpaste. I had it a bit on the drydown, but now about 30 minutes later, it's back. So it's like toothpaste and Strawberry Shortcake had a kid. Still good, but not quite my thing!

    Weenie Switch Witch - 2014 Help!

    Switch Witch Help, 2014 edition! My past help blogs are still up, but keep in mind stuff might have changed - I'm still in the middle of some pretty major life changes, and it's changed my outlook on some stuff, and my priorities and whatnot. Most of it's probably still accurate, but you might want to double check stuff just in case!! Amazon Wishlist: http://amzn.com/w/SQH5WXN77PBP (There are notes for some of the items - please look!) Etsy Favorites: https://www.etsy.com...e/?ref=col_list Pinterest: http://pinterest.com/ladywench Think Geet wishlist: https://www.thinkgeek.com/brain/gimme.cgi?wid=8208a60fd Sock Dreams wishlist: http://www.sockdreams.com/_users/wishlists/6be97a38273a4fd Soul Flower wishlist: http://soul-flower.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=DISPREG&regid=83494 General Stuff - Clothing is odd for me. I love graphic tees, but have a huge problem finding ones that are fitted properly, but are also long enough. Depending on the brand and style, I can be anywhere from an XL to a XXXL. Pants are also tricky - I can be either a 16 or an 18. Skirts I can usually do okay in an XL - I prefer fold over waistbands (like on some maxi skirts) as opposed to elastic ones. Also, my wishlists are HUGE, lol. I don't get to buy a lot for myself right now - I've recently quit my job to stay at home with my 1 year old daughter, and whenever I have extra money I just want to buy her all the things! So I keep wishlists as my 'someday' lists, which explains the randomness and size of them QUESTIONS! Newest ones will be on the bottom. - Pumpkins? Eh, they're okay. - Canned goods? Eh. I can't think of anything I'd be super interested in. - Trading Post wants? Triple Dagger bracelet, Carnaval Diabolique scent locket, 'A Little Lunacy' ID case - retailers? I'm not always huge on stuff from Mary K or Avon type places, but if you think I'd love it I don't mind - Coffee/tea? NO NO NO, lol. Not a fan at all. - Do you cook? Would kitchen accessories make you happy? I do cook, some! I'm mostly still learning. I wouldn't mind kitchen accessories - What culture or country (doesn’t have to be modern) do you feel an innate connection with? What about it makes it special to you? I don't really know...right now I'm interested in Norse stuff, though. - Is there any sort of art commission you would like: cartoony, pin-up, fantasy, realistic, etc? If so, what subject would you like drawn (a picture of you, a character, a loved one or pet)? Not at the moment, I have so much art that I have to frame and put up as it is! I'm always open to more, but not anything specifically commissioned! - What do you find yourself doing for fun in your free time? What are your main hobbies and interests? In my free time I play video games, and read. I LOVE to read (which is why I'm trying to start a career as a writer!). I love Blizzard games - WoW (though I can't afford a subscription at the moment), Diablo, Hearthstone. I also love my 3DS, though I haven't been able to get a whole lot of games for it lately. - Table-top gaming? If yes, what kind, edition, etc? Gaming accessories you long for? We've been known to play some games, we like 7 Wonders, Munchkin, that kind of stuff. We've been longing for Small World (I want the Underworld edition (I think that's what it's called, anyway). Accessories? Boxes to hold loose cards would be good, we have a bunch of card type games we've lost (or the dog we used to have ate) the original boxes for. - DVD movies or games that you wish would magically appear in your hands? I'd LOVE the Harry Potter collection of movies. I also have a bunch of Disney movies on my amazon list, I'd love a collection to show to my daughter when she's a little older! As for games...I'm REALLY interested in Doomtown which just came (back) out, that's about the only one right now I think. Small World would be cool, but Doomtown is higher on the list, lol. - created creations? Of course! I'll be making as much as I can for my witchee, so I'm more than happy to receive homemade goodies - What kind of snacks or candy from other countries/states would you like to try? I can't think of anything specific at the moment. Well, maybe ketchup chips. Those seem to be really hard to find in Florida, and I used to get them all the time up north. I LOVE ketchup chips! - Do you have a Facebook profile (or other social media) that you are comfortable linking to aid your witch in stalking? Please note whether you are willing to add BPALers as friends. Eh....I'm at a point right now where I'm not adding people unless I talk to them a lot on the forums. Trying to cut down on the FB stuffs a bit. So I'll have to think about it. I *will* however try to be a bit more active on the forums, and I'm more than willing to answer any questions Also, Venneh, nekogrrl, lioness, skyelyric, Coldie, OctoberGwen... those are all good people to ask for facebook stalking help Also I'm pretty active on Pinterest, linked above! - Do you have a favorite internet meme, character or pop culture fandom? Groot! Also World of Warcraft, Sailor Moon. Those are my big ones right now. And Star Trek. And of course witch kitsch, being halloween and all Ooooh, and She-ra. LOOOVE She-ra. - Do you like puzzles/riddles/treasure hunts and that sort of thing? They are fun - I do have a HUGE puzzle book right now that I'm slowly working on though (Maze of Games). Though I do love Logic Puzzles and sure wouldn't complain about getting more of those! - If you were to receive music, would you want a physical CD or digital versions? Either is fine - What’s a current problem/annoyance you have that could be remedied but you haven’t had time to address it? I need to clean my house in a big way. That's about it, lol. - How do you feel about having some sort of trinket to carry around for good luck/wishes? I.e. a small figurine, symbol, card, coin… I love that idea! - Are you superstitious about anything? Any things you can't have in your house for that reason--bad associations? Not that I can think of. - Apple? While I'm 'meh' on pumpkin, I LOVE apple! Apple type smells are my favorite in the fall, and dried apples are my go-to snack, I have a dehydrator and make them all the time - Christmas/Yule ornaments? If you like I'm not even thinking about that kind of thing yet, I like to celebrate one holiday before moving on to the next, lol! - Do you enjoy poetry? Who are your favorite poets and what type of subject matter do you like? Not huge on poetry. - Would you enjoy receiving something related to a favorite Disney character? I love Disney! I do live right behind Disney World though, lol. Favorite characters are Meg, Kida, Merida, Stitch (and the other experiments). I like a lot of the Pixie Hollow/Peter Pan stuff, love Haunted Mansion stuff (I have the hourglass!), Pirates (ride not movies), Jungle Cruise, pretty much anything Adventureland related (I worked there for 2 years, lol), Tarzan, Lilo and Stitch...okay I like a lot of Disney stuff! - How do you feel about cute things as decorations or accessories? (Example: Would you enjoy this stationary - or do you prefer elegant/creepy/neutral stuff?) I love creepy stuff. Cute is okay, especially if it's monsters. Or Sailor Moon. - What is something you'd really like to recieve from your witch? Please be as specific as possible - no, "Oh whatever she thinks is fine!" I feel weird asking for something specific. To me SW isn't about getting something you want, it's about gifting someone else, and getting to know your witch/witchee. BUT, since the question was asked, I would LOVE LOVE LOVE this wallet. Or this necklace. - Tarot/rune/divination? Yes! I actually finally found 'my' tarot deck not too long ago (Book of Shadows part 2 - So Below), but I still like to collect them for fun. I'd love to try rune stones - I'm big into Norse mythology right now. - Playlist? Here's what came up on shuffle! An Ancient Enemy - Hobbit Soundtrack Trashin' the Camp - Tarzan Soundtrack Madness - Muse Pale Watchers - Bastion Soundtrack Brown Sugar - Rolling Stones Perfect - Alanis Morissette A Man's Gotta Do - Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog Cecilia - Simon and Garfunkel re: Your Brains- Jonathan Coulton Tapestry of Nations - WDW soundtrack Can't Get Her Out - Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers - Celeb crush? Eh, I've had a few. - Glitter? YES!! I love glitter!!! - If you had a week free where you could learn anything, with no financial restrictions, what would you want to study? Archery. Or belly dancing. - Do you prefer physical books? CD books? eBooks? If eBooks do you have preferred format, kindle/nook/kobo/PDF/ePub/ect? eAudio? Books in pretty much any form are awesome. I don't do audio books so much, but physical books or kindle books are AWESOME. New, used, whatever! - Smut? No thanks. - If your witch were to take a photograph (or paint or whatever) of something just for you, what would it be? Landscape? Flower? Critter? Something to illustrate a favorite quote? Stonehenge, lol. I know, easy stuff, right? - Makeup, especially of the indie variety. Nail polish, nail wraps, eyeshadow, lipstick/gloss, etc. Y/N? Specific preferences (color, finish, product, brand, etc.)? Love makeup! I have SO MUCH though, lol. But I am a sucker for REALLY holo nailpolishes. Nothing actual glitter - that stuff is a bitch to get off! - How do you feel about profanity and off-color humor? I don't mind it, but it's not really my thing. I mean, I swear on occasion, and it depends on the humor, but that's about it. - I make hairsticks...would you like/use them? I would love to...but my hair is MUCH too short right now. It'll be ages before it's long enough for those! - Does anyone here LARP? If so, what kind of LARP? And what kind of character do you play? No larping here. - What is your favorite Halloween animal or other symbol/decoration? Witches (anything to do with witches - hats, cauldrons, broomsticks...) and skeletons! - Are there any GC scents that you know you love, but for whatever reason, keep putting off buying bottles of? Blockbuster (the bpal version, not the TAL version) is the only one that really comes to mind at the moment - I know not everyone likes Lush products, but if you do, which Lush items would you like to get from your Witch? I just got most of my favorites (ultrabland, celestial, angels on bare skin), but I do need some more ocean salt. - Zombies, yes or no? Yes! - Would you like arm warmers/fingerless gloves? If so, what length? just beyond the wrist, almost to the elbow, full sleeves? I love them, but I have so many already! - Do you feel a particular affinity for a specific animal/s? Phoenix. It's an image that came to me a lot during a certain time in my life, and I want to get a tattoo of one. - Anyone have any Paintbox Soapworks loves? Not especially at the moment. - How would you feel if your witch or a minion of your witch showed up in person at your house with goodies? Thrilled? Annoyed? Completely creeped out? Eh...I'd be a bit creeped out (unless it was Luna2119, lol, cause she's one of my best irl friends!). I'm at home alone with my daughter most of the time, and usually don't answer the door unless it's the mail guy. - Do you have a ravelry account? Tell me about your yarn obsessions. I do not. I do like funky yarn though, for the rare occasion that I still make monster dolls. - Sock Dreams, yay or nay? YES, and wishlist is at the top, lol! - Knitted items like scarves, shawls, dishclothes....yay or nay? Favorite fibers? Favorite colors? Sure! I love turquoise, black, purple, green, and anything soft. For our kitchen though, red is good, even though I'm the one that uses it most of the time the manwench wanted everything red in there O_o - Is your Amazon WL up-to-date? It is! And it's somewhat broken down into categories, too! - If you were to receive handmade caramels, would it matter if they were made with raw cream (unpasteurized)? No? - Would you enjoy getting a sampling of quality incense taken from various sources? Are there types of incense you know you don't like? Would you want a burner for loose incense and a few charcoals to get you started with that, or would you rather stick to simpler types? No thank you. -I know we already had a question about needed kitchen accessories, but what about spices? Spices are always fun! I'm still learning to cook and experiment - Would you like handmade stationary or cards? How about a quill pen? I would LOVE a quill pen! Stationary and cards I don't use so much. - On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being "gimme that ghost pepper!" and 1 being "oh, that's a bit too much black pepper for me" Where is your heat tolerance? Probably...4? 5? - Maple? I LOVE LOVE LOVE maple candy. LOVE IT. It's one of the things I really miss about living up in New England. - What scents from the Lillith update would you like to try? Goofballs, Ghost Houses, Venustas - Would you be interested in receiving a box of sugar cube skulls? No thanks! - Skin care routine? Fave cleanser? Toner? Moisturizer? What about body lotions? Any particular brand or scent? Lip balms? Yay or nay? I like Lush - Ultrabland and Angels on Bare Skin. I still have at least half a jar of each right now, so don't need any more at the moment (that stuff takes forever to go through!). I could use more Ocean Salt scrub though. Lotions I don't use a whole lot of, same with lip balms. - Is there anything you would like from Salem MA (mugs, keychains, postcards, etc.or witchy supplies like incense, candles, books)? YES! I love Salem! Witchy stuff is good, as well as actual witchy stuff - I'm interested in candles (small ones, I can't have candles burning for a long time, I'm a bit all over the place and can't always watch them), or anything for a 'noob' witch/wiccan. - Would you be interested in any of the items in LisaNut's etsy shop? No thank you. - Spiders (as in cute knit kind) yes or no? No thanks! - Pillows (the mostly decorative type)? Now that we no longer have a dog that would eat them, I would love some! Especially if they are nerdy/geeky. - Any kind of bags - big, small, medium, purse, grocery, etc? Unless it's on a wishlist of mine, no thank you! - Is there anything special coming up in your life? Not really. - If you have a significant other (or even a close friend that will laugh at the implications), would you enjoy any of these couple rings? My husband isn't super in to rings, so no thanks - How about anything from the same store's Halloween collection? There's a few things...(they aren't all from the Halloween section...I got a bit lost http://www.spiffingjewelry.com/product_p/hm10.htm http://www.spiffingjewelry.com/product_p/peterpan6.htm http://www.spiffingjewelry.com/product_p/makeitso.htm

    Use to break up old conditions and clear the way for positive change. Really glad I bought this stuff!! It's minty and herbal, and smells lovely. I put it on my chakras, but I think I'll avoid doing that next time because it made my eyes water! As for how it works...it's not really a 'right away' oil, but it really helped me work through some big changes going on in my life this past month or so. It *did* leave me ridiculously drained after. I tried it in the morning, and then a week later I tried it before I went to bed, and both times I felt super drained after about 8 hours or so - so in the afternoon/evening of when I tried it in the morning, and when I woke up I felt it after the time I tried it before bed. So that's something to keep in mind. I'd be interested to see how it does with candle work, though I don't really need it anymore at the moment.

    I was lucky enough to get the 2008 version of this in a swap recently! I love the atmo spray so much that I knew I was going to need to try the oil when I found out it existed! I LOVE it. LOVE LOVE LOVE it! It's strong on me - a little bit goes a VERY long way. It's a mix between creamy, almost too-sweet vanilla cake and the perfect candy-cane mint. THIS is what I always want the 'Lick It' series to be, but those never seem to end up working on me. It's funny, because while it's very strong as I go about my day and catch whiffs of it, if I go and sniff my wrist I actually don't get that much of it. This is easily one of my top favorites already, and probably one I'll try to snag more of if I see it again!

    If your top 5 scents are... Then try these!

    Based on #1, 4 and 5 (haven't tried the others), I'd recommend Eat Me (I love foody scents and don't care for it, but still, it's really popular), Tamora, Bread-and-Butterfly, and Huesos de Santo. I'll have to try those, thank you!
