It is the time of year when we might long to connect with the other side, to learn what lies beyond, to reach through the veil and experience what may touch us in turn...for those who seek the knowledge of omens and portents, our specter-minded potion is just the thing for ethereal encounters, with the spirit-attraction powers of lemon blossom EO and saffron as well the citrusy glow of protective bergamot and purifying copal resin, grounded within the metaphysical aura of cedar and tropical sandalwood.
I bought a blank book because I needed a new journal, a place to capture my thoughts and ideas and it was strange...the clerk claimed never to have seen the book in inventory, she thought it looked too old for their stock, the pages with an ivory tinge and the dark leather cover made smooth and slightly warm to the touch. I paid very little because of this and took it home, with a new fountain pen also acquired. But when I turned to the first page, ready to comment upon my day and the unusual way in which I’d found this new journal, instead of the words I’d inscribed, this is what appeared upon the page:
Gather ye the sacred woods and herbs
And by moonrise maketh a fyre to light thy ritual worke
Toss thy sacred ingredients within
And invoke ye guide of the nightside
Petition thy desire
Pay with thy bloode and thy pact
For to be a vessel to thy rider
...and that’s all. I have tried to write something, anything, else but the book will not allow it. I will not do this, as it seems incomplete and only half a ritual is too dangerous to contemplate but I am disturbed...I find myself muttering these instructions under my breath...will I find myself compelled to enact them when next the moon is full? Did the book seek me out for this reason?

Pheromones are sterile lab recreations of human bodily secretions. They are used as perfume additives, and like scent notes, can help create an aura or evoke an emotion.
They are not hormones or steroids, and do not cause physiological change such as a drug might. They do not require the presence of a human VNO organ. They are essentially scent notes, chemical messages that are interpreted through the brain when inhaled.
They do not override a person's free will, and cannot make anyone do something they do not want to do. They are not just for sexual conquest, though that is one of their purposes.
Please see this excellent article on the subject of smell and emotion, thank you.
We craft perfumes with intent as our starting point, & while we call this "magic" to be cute & fun, what we do is really a mixture of art & science. It's a fact that scents effect people's feelings & opinions; you can subtly influence people using aromas. This is our expertise.
When we craft a potion for love, what we are doing is helping to make the wearer appear approachable, cuddly, or seductive based upon known responses to the ingredients...vanilla & honey being among the most reliable attractants of this kind.
For a money potion, we choose ingredients that give off a clean and professional aura, which in turn can help give the impression that the wearer is reliable, dependable & worthy of investment.
