Our enduringly popular Ashes To Dust ritual oil fragrance possesses Latin American roots in the ingredients chosen for its construction and so is entirely fitting to be included in this collection which salutes the traditions of Dia de los Muertos. As this potion aids in envisioning rebirth, cleansing and forgiveness - for exorcising the past, bestowing blessings and protection, and welcoming renewal - it can be utilized for rituals associated with the celebration, such as the All Saints’ Day egg cleanse - una limpia - which involves rubbing an uncooked egg over the body to draw out impure energy. This perfume potion includes ingredients from all over the world for blessings, purification and new beginnings, including: Rose Geranium, Sandalwood, Myrrh, Palo Santo, Copal, Frankincense, Sage, Oakmoss, Benzoin, Rose Attar, Sea Salt, Holy Water. Use for shedding the weight of the past and welcoming the new.

The scents of this celebration - to honor those loved ones who have passed on and remember their lives, as well as to remind the living that Life is sweet and should be enjoyed in the embrace of friends and family - can be found within these 13 fragrances, all aspects of traditions which stretch back (in some cases) centuries.
