Soul Food: Cimaruta Spell Collection 2020 - A Potion for Honoring Those who have Passed
One of our best-selling resin-based unisex blends, Soul Food is imbued with the aura of sacred observances and of spiritual enlightenment and serenity. This fragrance smells familiar to you, you recognize it, perhaps from an earlier incarnation, it is a scent which is imprinted upon our very souls...all of the ingredients were utilized in the venerable traditions of mummification, and as tributes to the gods and for remembrance of the dead. A fragrance with the aura of an ancient temple: featuring a heart of sandalwood and benzoin, further resinous resonances of dragon’s blood, patchouli, frankincense and myrrh, and sprinkles of earthy cassia EO and cinnamon.

The motto of LPMP is "Add a little MAGIC to your life!" and we sincerely endeavor to do just that by offering a wide variety of fragrances which enhance the wearer by means of scent and intent. We present our 2020 Spell Collection with a focus upon the ancient Italian folk magic of Cimaruta, which is embodied within a multi-symbolic silver charm worn to protect the wearer from the Evil Eye. Stories regarding the symbolism of this amulet were passed within the oral tradition to children and the amulet bestowed upon infants throughout all regions of Italy and Sicily. One of the oldest existing amulets in recorded history, the origins of the cimaruta lie with the Etruscans and early Phoenicians dating back to 900-700 BC.
To craft these scents we have enlisted the wisdom and guidance of Darcie Vélez, practitioner of Strega Folklore Magic, Witch Priestess and Reverend. These potions are created with beautiful-smelling and magically symbolic ingredients for all the ways in which our credo can be enacted. Each bottle in the collection contains a congruent ingredient for the particular potion - such as seeds, roots or minerals - for further enhancement of its particular effects. The artwork for this collection has been created by the fabulous Elizabeth Frazier, a wonderfully-talented artist and musician as well as a long-time LPMP customer and forum member.
So please enjoy the Spell Collection as fragrances, and utilize them in ritual work with a pure heart and a focused mind…because the true magic is, ever and always, in YOU!

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.
