About Our Offerings
Artisanal + HandcraftedAll our offerings are designed and crafted by the hand of Kaitlin Coppock to painstaking specification. This includes distinctive ingredients, limited timeframes, and the utmost care in every aspect of the process, from planning to creation to packaging.
Talismanic Chart SelectionOur creations are more than casually or superficially related to their namesakes. They are timed to the exacting specifications of a professional talismanic standard, taking into account the quality of the target placement, visibility, speed, retrogradation, interfering and supporting factors, planetary days and hours, and angles of the chart, among a myriad of further considerations. This can leave less than an hour for the creation of a talismanic object. All Sphere + Sundry elections are determined in consultation with astrologer Austin Coppock.
Bottling + MaintenanceWhenever possible, creations are sealed at the time of the election in the same bottle you will receive, and are not opened until you crack the seal. In the case of using a Mother batch, they are only opened and poured into smaller containers during compatible transits and in the proper day and hour, with as little disturbance as possible. When ongoing maintenance during gestation is required, as in the case of agitating oils, this is also sympathetically timed.
28-Day Incubation PeriodAll creations are covered and left to rest undisturbed for one full lunar cycle. This allows the energy of the election to fully permeate the materia and prolongs the magical charge, making for a more potent object.
Branding, or Lack ThereofAll of our offerings come unbranded, meaning that there is no Sphere + Sundry labeling to be found on any object. This helps ensure purity of purpose, both physically and energetically. These creations are magical objects, and once they are in your hands, become yours. Labeling them, as such, would be at odds with their ultimate purpose, and your ability to feel and exercise full ownership. This also makes them more at home on altars, and purer vehicles for scrying and meditation.
The Finest IngredientsPrecious and semi-precious stones. Exotic and rare (ethically begotten, cruelty-free) ingredients – human and animal bones, skins, and powders. Pure essential oils and resins. No artificial fragrances or fillers. High quality oils, cold pressed and hexane-free – apricot kernel, almond, sunflower, or olive. Natural preservatives and stabilizers – Vitamins E and C, ethanol and witch hazel. High quality non-paraffin waxes – soy or beeswax. Organic, homegrown, freshly harvested herbs whenever possible.
Genuine Magical ArtifactsOur offerings are created in a genuine magical context for the purposes of similar application, using the highest and most thorough of standard protocol – precise timing, prayer, suffumigation, ingredients of genuine correspondence and sympathy, reputable seals and sigils, magic squares/ kameas, applicable numbers and colors, etc.
Shipping + HandlingMost of our wares are delicate and require great care in packaging, so as to prevent leaking and breakage. This is even more important than for most shipped goods, given the specific and irreplaceable nature of our offerings, which are handcrafted in extremely limited, often unduplicatable, runs. Bottles with the potential to leak are sealed with wax, and all goods are wrapped in copious amounts of tissue paper, both color coded to the nature of the work. Packages are sent once per week via USPS. You will be notified by email and given a tracking code once your shipment has been processed. In the unlikely event that any of your goods are damaged, get in touch. We may not be able to offer a replacement, in which case, you can select store credit or a refund.

Of Great Joy, she shares —$45.00
I begin to sing of Asclepius, son of Apollo and healer of sicknesses. In the Dotian plain fair Coronis, daughter of King Phlegyas, bare him, a great joy to men, a soother of cruel pangs.
And so hail to you, lord: in my song I make my prayer to thee!
This is an oil of healing and an oil for healers.
Great Joy to Mankind is dedicated to – and was crafted under the auspices of – Asclepius and was crafted to strengthen the body, soothe the mind, and calm emotional turmoil. It is an oil that fortifies health, augments health and healing protocols, and assists in fortifying and protecting healers, caregivers, and those in charge of shielding their households from harm.
We are all under a tremendous amount of stress, and an additional benefit of this oil is that it was crafted to help wash away the terrors and anxieties of living in the center of a pandemic’s maelstrom. Regular use will help you find the inner peace necessary to face life’s current challenges with strength, clarity, and grace.
Use this oil to honor Asclepius and in rituals of health and healing. Great Joy to Mankind can be utilized to lightly anoint protective equipment, health and protection amulets and talismans, to create wards and safe healing spaces, and to bless and protect the afflicted or vulnerable.
Please note: this oil is not a substitute for common sense safety precautions, and it is not a substitute for diligent mask-wearing, hand-washing, and social distancing. This is not a panacea, and we make no claims that this is a miracle cure for anything. Be sensible, be safe, do every mundane thing you can to protect yourself, your loved ones and your community, and may Asclepius the Deliverer protect us all from harm.

“So be Wise as Serpents, and Innocent as Doves.” — Matthew 10:16
These relics are a visceral, ferrous expression of two primary principles observed within an occult framework : Salubrity and Resolve.
The Asklepian or ‘Rod of Asclepius’ consists of the serpent and staff. The serpent here may be said to represent both perpetual renewal & healing as well as the dual nature of pharmakon as both panacea and poison. The staff reminds us that in times of great need we must be willing to be supported. Their respective forms are expressed in hand-wrought iron, born of the hammer & anvil in flickering cacophony that is the ancient and venerable craft of the smith.
Some preparation of material took place the evening prior (cutting, layout, etc.) and final preparations were made during pre-dawn hours the morning of the election. Offerings of cedar, juniper, fir pitch and several native artemisia species were burned in the forge and a fumigatory rite of cleansing took place.
Enough material was cut and prepared for the 13+ relics to be forged, the serpent and staff to be officially intertwined during the beneficent interstice of this potent election. The election allowed a small but adequate window in which the work was to take place.
It was an intense fifty minutes. I can’t recall the last time I worked with as much vehemence, but I did manage to meet our goal. And not without some violence against my own corpus for as the work concluded, I fell into an intense bout of very unpleasant nausea and vomiting, swiftly (and mercifully!) followed by a deep sense of wellness. This speaks precisely to the often purgative, sicken-ing nature of pharmakon and again -- to the dual-nature of the serpent as an embodiment of wisdom and rejuvenation.
As for the iron Asklepians and their care, I recommend only this: while the relics have been treated with a thin coating of wax, I recommend that upon receipt they are further coated in the accompanying oil formulated by Sphere + Sundry during the election, or one of your choosing, preferably that lends itself to the restorative and health-giving nature of Asclepius and the noble art of physik.
I pray these talismanic objects of virtue serve in whatever capacity you desire, be they employed as ceremonial foci or by iron’s physical touch as a means of removing illness and dis-ease, thereby exploiting iron’s capability in the eradication of foul spirit presences afflicting both body and soul.Only 13 were forged. Offered for $130 each.$130.00

Short pillars w/ dressing set for $65. Slim vigil or tall pillars w/ dressing set for $91.$65.00 – $91.00$65.00 – $91.00
Asclepius III, Series, Bath + Beauty, SaltsRitual baths were one of the first steps taken to cleanse those who made pilgrimage to temples of Asclepius in pursuit of healing (as detailed in the series description for Asclepius II), and salt is a tried and true agent of natural purification in ways both meta and physical.

These, along with Rose of Jericho and a carnelian cabochon etched at the beginning of the same election by Austin Coppock, were combined in a copper still and immersed in water freshly collected from the headwaters of the Sacramento River in Mt. Shasta. A hydrosol was produced throughout the night, which was later combined with essential oils of frankincense and rosemary, colloidal gold, and grain alcohol during Asclepius III's Sol-Luna-Ras Alhague election, where the water was dedicated to Asclepius, receiving his blessing. Although the ingredients are the same and proportions similar to previous iterations, this water took on a more grounded and less cooling quality than others, reflecting the Sun's presence at the IC of the chart. For a thorough application, shake well and use as a body and aura spray, making sure to focus around the head, neck, chest, and spine. Invokes instant clarity and refreshment, and aids in helping clear your field, heart, and mind over the next many hours.

Shasta, combined on the Asclepius III altar with grain alcohol + colloidal gold, making for a final solution with 80% alcohol content. Mixed with Solar essential oils on the Sun's day and hour as Apollo transited his sign of his exaltation, and decanted into glass woozy bottles with orifice reducers for easy application. Turkish colognes are often sprinkled upon the hands before entering one's household or business establishment, providing some natural sanitation and also a delightful scent. This can be used in such a way, or as a type of Asclepius Florida Water for energetic cleansing, drawing goodness and illumination — anytime or before ritual. Makes it difficult for nasties to glom on or penetrate the auric body. Shake well to integrate the Sol-looking drops of golden essential oil before use. Energy Clearing Protocol For energetic cleansing, sprinkle about a half teaspoon onto the palms of the hands and vigorously rub together for 10 or so seconds, coating both sides. Stand and run your palms from the crown of your head down the back of the head, then start from the top again, going down the front of your face and body, all the way down to the tops of your feet. The hands can float 2 inches from the body or be lightly touching it. Continue skimming from the head downward, sweeping your cologned hands across every surface area, including under the arms, groin, and rear, concluding with the bottoms of the feet. You can "flick" the energy off or it will dissipate naturally, however you prefer. Take 10-30 seconds to integrate the cleansing, feeling the shift, and thank Asclepius and/ or Apollo for their protection, sealing the auric body from negativity. Asclepius' Kolonía can also be used before performing reiki, energy work, or any other healing activity, on clients or loved ones.

Modeled in hard carver’s wax and cast on March 27th, 2020 at 6:57 am EST in Williamsport Pennsylvania. The Sun rising on the ascendant, exalted in Aries during the planetary hour of the sun [with an exalted Moon, Mars, and Venus/Saturn in their domiciles]. Casting was accompanied by suffumigations and petition created specifically for this hybrid election.
The head of Ptah, demiurge of Memphis who spoke into creation the Gods and forms conceived within his mind (heart), fleshed out in high relief and cast in molten electrum; a 80/20 alloy of silver and gold. With royal beard, and crowned with two plumes surrounding a solar disk (cast in gold). This crown was incorporated into depictions of Ptah as he absorbed aspects Tatenen, embodying the chthonic fire that raises and shapes the earth. Set into the forehead is a .6 carat octagonal-cut ruby mounted into a raised prong setting.Only 10 were cast, 7 of which are offered to the public. Includes a vial of Luminous Crown Oil for charging, feeding, and attuning to your talisman. Talismans are included in each of the 3 large Box Sets.

Candles, Luminous Crown, SeriesVirgin white beeswax poured over consecrated Luminous Crown herb and gem mix, including saltwater pearl, ruby, diamond, and saffron, super-quickly powdered and sprinkled into every mold. Each candle includes dual wicks which burn united as a single flame, representing each of the lights in their signs of exaltation, fueling united purpose. Topped or gilded with electrum, an alloy of gold and silver, the metals of Sol and Luna respectively, showcasing the same. This is the first series offering pillar candles in addition to glass jars, perfect for carving, dressing, and works of candle magic. I suggest burning them in glass containers near their size regardless, so if any wax drips down the side (see gallery), it can be used to feed the flame as it burns, rather than go to waste. Each candle is marked on the bottom with a hand stamped and embossed Luminous Crown seal. The pillars stand within 1/4" of their ideal height of 3" and 6". Unscented, burn on a firesafe surface, never leave unattended. Only half of what was poured is being offered to the public, the Luminous Crown being an exceedingly rare, highly eminent election. The slim vigil style jars seen in the photos have been paired with large Box Sets. Short pillars and 2 oz jar candles for $90, or tall pillars for $168.$90.00 – $168.00$90.00 – $168.00

Series, Sundry, Waters + Sprays, S+ Ashley Ayres, S+ Austin CoppockThis is the result of a standalone project one and a half years in the making, formulated by long-time Martial arts practitioner and student of TCM Ashley Ayres, in collaboration with fellow martial artist, electional astrologer, and ritualist Austin Coppock. It was created during a supremely fine Mars in Capricorn election, the red planet rising in its hour, fortified by Jupiter in Scorpio on the midheaven, and anchored by a stalwart, exalted Taurus Moon. As always, the chart can be found in the image gallery. The Forgemaster's Iron Palm liniment is a specialized form of jow, intended to warm, strengthen, and fortify, in addition to providing the expedited healing properties of other more generalized dit da jows. It can be used in the formal context of iron palm (or shin, or foot, etc.) training, but it also provides energetic and magical properties encapsulated by the Mars election itself. It serves as a form of exterior armor and attunes one's vessel to the Martial sphere in a way that is both productive and invigorating. Apply and rub well into the skin before and/ or after workouts or combat, whether of a metaphoric or physical nature. For a deeper dive into the workings of this supremely fine, well aged formula, Austin writes —$25.00 – $55.00
The furnace blazes, the iron glows. Blood burns in the hammer-arm of the blacksmith. Stubborn metal becomes malleable, open to convincing arguments from the hammer and the strong hand that wields it.
Fire, iron, and blood. This is the holy trinity of Mars, as crucial for creation as it is for destruction. While many know Mars as the Warrior, the red planet is equally the Smith. In the Smith we see the constructive side of Mars, the blood, sweat, and tears necessary to shape and re-shape our lives, our bodies, ourselves.
The Smith’s alchemical action is an especially apt metaphor for the transformation of the body. The layers of effort required to re-forge the body are quintessentialy martial, and there is no exercise regimen as close to the forge as Iron Palm.
Iron Palm refers to a family of limb-training methods which strengthen the skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and bones for both defensive and offensive purposes. Many styles also emphasize the internal side, cultivating increased qi emission capacity for both striking and healing purposes.
Though there are many variations, the training almost always consists of a daily routine of hitting progressively more resilient materials. A canvas bag of bean, then stones, then metal. Though the results are dramatic, the training process is incremental, with as much attention paid to healing and perfect recovery as to anything else.
Over the years, a great number of liniments have been created for this purpose. Generally referred to as dit da jow, they are widely available and widely used for general athletic purposes well outside of the specific practice of an Iron Palm regimen.
The Forgemaster’s Dit Da Jow is one of these Iron Palm formulae, but with a Sphere + Sundry twist. This Jow was created in a fully ritual manner and at a precisely elected astrological time.
Prayers to Mars the Forgemaster were intoned to bless and empower this tincture at the outset of the operation. The operators were consecrated to the red work, and the medicine vessels adorned with magic square, seal, and sigil.
The elected time seemed a spectacularly appropriate and rare moment for this work. It was the Day and Hour of Mars, with the red planet exalted in Capricorn and on the Ascendant. This powerful, earthy Mars was further supported by a trine from an exalted Moon in Taurus, and meanwhile, Jupiter in Mars-ruled Scorpio crowned the zenith (MC). Not only was Mars strong, but Mars, the Rising, Moon, and Sun were all in Earth signs in order to ensure that the planet’s iron blessings were sufficiently rooted in the very bodily goal of this creation.
After the evocations were said, the herbal and animal ingredients were sealed in their alchemical bath for 18 months.
The result, the Forgemaster’s Dit Da Jow, is not only rich with the spirit and energy of this powerful Mars election, it also possesses the excellent properties bestowed by the materia of the formulation itself.
The basis for this recipe is the Iron Palm formula of Yu Cheung (1894- 1952), one of the famed Five Tigers of Canton. His iron palm feats were famously documented in the early 1900's by photographers, and though his stone-shattering exploits are too numerous to cover here, there are entire books dedicated to his training methods. Crucially, he was known not just his power of his hands, but also their sensitivity.
This formula was designed by him to cultivate both strength and softness. Protection for the hand, energy gates, and organ systems while also maximizing sensitivity and the capacity to express qi for both healing and striking purposes. Yu Cheung’s formula is the basis for this liniment, though it has been modified in small ways for reasons of both ethics and efficacy.
This liniment is designed to unblock the qi flow, activate blood movement, relax tendons and ligaments and increase bone strength. The two types of qi this formula stimulates are wei qi or “defensive/guardian energy” and regular organ qi. This formula activates both in harmony, and is one of the many reasons it is superior to a store-bought dit da jow.
Forgemaster’s Dit Da Jow is formulated to facilitate the healing of bruises , tendons, sinews, and bones, and to reduce pain, strengthen blood vessels, reduce swelling, and mitigate blood stagnation. It also protects the meridians and mobilizes both protective and organ qi for health and vitality.
The Forgemaster’s Dit Da Jow is, of course, perfect for an Iron Limb regimen, but has a number of other uses. Both physically and energetically, it is an ideal pre- and post- workout liniment for any martial striking practice, such as boxing and kickboxing. More broadly, it can be used to ready and fortify the muscles, tendons, and joints in preparation for any athletic activity, and to facilitate the swift healing of bruises. Magically, it is appropriate for works of fortification and the cultivation of personal power.Bottled and a portion made available to the public on the first Tuesday after Mars returned to Capricorn in 2020, a year and a half after creation. Arrives in a glass bottle with spray top for easy application, in either a travel/ sample size of 1/2 oz for $25, or full 2 oz for $55 Note: Should not be used in areas with mucous membranes, skin rashes, open cuts, or sores. Apply a small amount, wait an hour, if no allergic reaction occurs, continue with use. External application only.$25.00 – $55.00
Series, Mars in Scorpio, Oils + PerfumesA blend of organic herbs, resins, and gems of martial nature and correspondence, including bloodstone, red jasper, red ginseng, scorpion pepper, stinging nettle, basil, pink and black peppercorn, ritually suffumigated with Mars' Degree of Exaltation incense during the pre-dawn hour of Mars on New Year’s day 2020. This as Mars rose in Scorpio (electional chart within the image gallery), in addition to other herbs and sundries typically employed in Hoodoo and Conjure for promoting fortitude, strength, potency, and victory, such as High John the Conquerer Root. Blood enhancing additions for virility and masculine potency are also present, in the form of horny goat weed, tongkat ali, yohimbe, and others, in a base of organic olive oil. This was formulated with the explicit intention of creating a user-friendly, non-toxic, and temperate Mars oil. While it is very powerful, it is also cooler in tone and manifestation than Mars often is, oriented to be as productive as possible. It promotes focus, grit, inner steel, and teaches Martial wisdom through the perspective of its fixed water sign. Expect gains in self-sufficiency, a boost to your strategic, grounded and tactical thinking, and to better remain calm and centered, committed to The Mission at hand. For more on its expression, applications, and side effects, see the series writeup. Apply to the self before going to work or engaging in physical activities, to override lazy and whiney impulses. Use before entering into situations where your ability to keep calm in the face of offensive or defensive maneuvers will win the day. Anoint weapons and Martial implements to empower them. Should you have need for a more weaponized form of Mars in Scorpio, consider its more lethally endowed Other, Oil of Scorpion. Arrives in a 1/2 oz (4 dram) glass vial with hand drawn glyph for $65$65.00$65.00
Mars in Scorpio, Series, Waters + SpraysIn the pre-dawn hour of Mars as the red planet rose in Scorpio on day 1 of 2020, iron rich well water was drawn from the depths of the earth to fill the interior still pot for this Mars in Scorpio hydrosol. Herbs and gems of a classical Martial nature, including red ginseng, scorpion pepper, black and pink peppercorns, bloodstone, and red jasper were combined with sundry ingredients used in Hoodoo and Conjure for victory, strength, and potency, such as High John the Conqueror Root, Devil's Shoestring, and Devil's pod. A small piece of the cast iron grilled offering steak also thrown in. Distillation via copper alembic was initiated at the start of the ritual operation and left to generate throughout the course of the day, each bottle being placed upon the working altar after completion, and aged for a full lunar cycle before being bottled and made available to the public. The result is a potent and user-friendly mist that can be applied as an aura and body spray before physical activities and work sessions to amp productivity, create laser like focus, gain self-sufficiency, and promote strategic intelligence, rational thinking, and remain calm in the face of offensive and defensive maneuvering. Use to win negotiations and arguments. A great workout and weight loss aid, helpful for those trying to hold themselves accountable on paths of yang oriented self-improvement. Increases visual interest and makes other's pay more attention to what you say and do. Boosts your intimidate check. Stamps out lazy and whiney impulses. Increases pain tolerance. Full disclosure: this hydrosol doesn't smell delicious. If you want something pretty, turn elsewhere, for like dignified Mars himself, this one's a bit musky. It'll get the job done, but note that doesn't necessarily mean you'll love doing the work, just that Mars is content with being joyless and suffering for the sake of achievement. Application over time will help you develop the grit, resolve, and inner steel necessary to execute any mission, or to win any war. Side effects include a tendency toward myopia and getting sucked into the depths of a thing, increased sweating and body odor. Other series can be used in conjunction to guide and moderate the influence, including Venus for sexual purpose, and others.

Series, Mars in Scorpio, PowdersOrganic herbs and gems of a classical Martial nature, including red ginseng, scorpion pepper, black and pink peppercorns, bloodstone, and red jasper were combined with sundry ingredients famed in Hoodoo and Conjure for victory, strength, and potency, such as High John the Conqueror Root, Devil’s Shoestring, and others, in addition to yang potency enhancers such as horny goat weed, yohimbe, and tongkat ali. These were combined and ritually suffumigated with Mars' Exaltation Degree incense during the hour of Mars, as the zodiac's soldier rose over the eastern horizon in Scorpio following a lengthy entreaty for his empowerment. Election chart in the image gallery. Pure and uncut, ground with the addition of ammoniacum gum during the day and hour of Mars.

Mars in Scorpio, Oils + Perfumes, SeriesScorpion had been intentionally omitted as an ingredient in the original Mars in Scorpio formula to reduce potential for malefic fallout, be less toxic, and more user-friendly — good for regular application by a wider variety of people for practical and remedial purpose. Throughout its lunar cycle of gestation, dream and omen pointed to the fact that Scorpion should in fact feature, so a round of divinations were performed to see which form that should take. I had anticipated it would be the powder or incense since those are things that appeal most exclusively to fellow mages in their own spellwork, but the tarot revealed otherwise. The reading indicated the Mars in Scorpio oil was already ideally mixed, as the goal had been to "temper" its malefic nature and the card pulled was literally Temperance upright, but also that adding Scorpion to a sub-batch would produce the kind of result you never turn down — The Emperor upright. Thus, 10 venomous scorpions were ground to a fine powder on Saturn's day and Mars' hour, and a small amount was dispersed throughout each vial of Emperor Edition Mars in Scorpio oil, which also features 24k gold and a different essential oil blend befitting its darker, more lethal nature. Use in extreme cases of conflict and danger, to invoke the spirit and allegiance of Emperor and Scorpion energy. Not intended for regular application for most people, but for those who need to bring a bigger weapon to the gunfight than a temperate Mars provides, perhaps by those working in high competition sectors, or find themselves vulnerable to particularly nasty enemies.

Energetically and magically speaking, this attuning tincture is just as efficacious for women and non-binary individuals as it is men. For more on that, and how this election is specifically productive for enhancing desire and sexual performance, see the full series writeup. Easily guiden by chosen activity and supplementation from other series. Warming. Offered in a 1/2 oz dropper bottle for $30 Important: 100% of the ingredients in this formula were named in the first sentence of the description. Many of these occur in "male enhancement" herbal supplements and may cause hormonal disruption, especially in favor of increasing male hormones and impacting blood flow, in alignment with the planet Mars as karaka for masculine hormones and bleeding. It could very well impact the efficacy of birth control. Also note: While this contains nothing inedible or poisonous, it was not created in a commercial kitchen to GMP standards, so it is not suitable or intended for consumption. Use externally to anoint yourself (nowhere sensitive) or objects. Keep this (and all our wares) out of reach of children. Do not use while pregnant or trying to get pregnant. Any internal consumption undertaken at the user’s sole risk and liability.$30.00$30.00

Mars in Scorpio, Series, SundryThis is the result of a standalone project one and a half years in the making, formulated by long-time Martial arts practitioner and student of TCM Ashley Ayres, in collaboration with fellow martial artist, electional astrologer, and ritualist Austin Coppock. It was created during a supremely fine Mars in Capricorn election, the red planet rising in its hour, fortified by Jupiter in Scorpio on the midheaven, and anchored by a stalwart, exalted Taurus Moon. As always, the chart can be found in the image gallery. The Forgemaster's Iron Palm liniment is a specialized form of jow, intended to warm, strengthen, and fortify, in addition to providing the expedited healing properties of other more generalized dit da jows. It can be used in the formal context of iron palm (or shin, or foot, etc.) training, but it also provides energetic and magical properties encapsulated by the Mars election itself. It serves as a form of exterior armor and attunes one's vessel to the Martial sphere in a way that is both productive and invigorating. Apply and rub well into the skin before and/ or after workouts or combat, whether they be of a metaphoric or physical nature. For a deeper dive into the workings of this supremely fine, well aged formula, Austin writes —$25.00 – $55.00
The Smith’s alchemical action is an especially apt metaphor for the transformation of the body. The layers of effort required to re-forge the body are quintessential martial, and there is no exercise regimen as close to the forge as Iron Palm.$25.00 – $55.00

Series, Mother Algol, Waters + SpraysConsecrated Algol herbal base, including black hellebore root and leaf, belladonna flower, mummified rattle snake, rattler, snake's skin, diamond, and more, immersed in organic unfiltered apple cider vinegar and sulfur during the height of the Full Moon in Taurus conjunct the fixed star Algol, 2019. The color is the natural result of the ingredients imbuing, left to gestate at the edge of the woods for two Lunar cycles, making for a ridiculously potent elixir, unparalleled for extreme magical protection, acts of counter-magic, and necessary, well-considered maleficia. Sours, darkens, and promotes acrid toxicity. I do not recommend application to one's person, or even in interior spaces. Such may require a good amount of energetic purification afterward, for which Asclepius, Sol, and Regulus are all good antidotes, especially their incense, water, and candle light. This is one of the most potent and active items from the Mother Algol series. Please use with great care. Each glass bottle contains silver leaf and a hand drawn Algol label, offered in a small 1/2 oz size for $30 or 2 oz for $63 Please note that due to the particularly malefic nature of Algol, divination is being done on all orders placed for this series.
