Water freshly harvested from Mt. Shasta, grain alcohol, colloidal gold, and organic essential oils, consecrated during the Antares operation. Saffron threads and red sardonyx.
Cleansing the vessel with this Kolonía helps purify the Martial and Antarian within your own bodily Sphere.
Best practice with any Kolonía is to seal the auric body after use. This is easily achieved by using any Anointing Oil, Salve, or even Body Butter which supports your chosen aims, to address your state in the moment, or for supporting longer-term goals.
Cleanse your ritual and physical weapons, sporting regalia, and other appropriate items.
Turkish colognes are often sprinkled upon the hands before entering households and business establishments, providing natural sanitation and also a delightful scent. ⠀
Sphere + Sundry’s talismanic Kolonías can be used in such a way, or as Celestial Florida Waters for energetic cleansing — promoting clarity and way-finding, as life demands or before ritual. ⠀
Doing the following makes it difficult for nasties to glom on or penetrate the auric body, and establishes a clean slate which potentiates the efficacy of other materia…⠀
Shake well to integrate and disburse organic essential oils, colloidal metals, and botanically derived colors.⠀
⠀Quick Kolonía Clearing Protocol ⠀
Sprinkle about a half teaspoon onto the palm of the hand and gently rub both together for 5-10 seconds, coating tops and bottoms. The hands can float 2 inches from the body or lightly skim it.⠀
Stand and run your palms from the crown of your head down the back of it, then start from the top again, going down the sides, the front of the face and down body, all the way to the tops of your feet. Sweep multiple times. ⠀
If you feel any areas “sticking”, continue stroking until energies disperse, and then proceed with additional downward sweeping.⠀
Continue skimming downward, running your cologned hands across every surface area, including under the arms, groin, between the legs, and rear, concluding with the bottoms of the feet by lifting them. You can “flick” the energy off if it feels right, or it will dissipate naturally, however you prefer.⠀
Take 10-30 seconds to close your eyes and integrate the cleansing, feeling the shift, and thank your chosen Power for the cleansing and protection it provided, sealing the auric body from negativity.⠀
Kolonías also serve to anoint and sanctify the hands, and can be used before performing energy work, ritual work, or any activity related to each series’ arcana – on oneself, one’s clients, or loved ones. They can be used to cleanse objects, spaces, and add oomph to spiritual baths, as well as added to floor washes, essential oil diffusers, or dishes of water kept at the bedside and entries. ⠀
Extraordinarily simple, versatile, effective, and p o t e n t .

Wow. I used this kolonia after using jupiter in sag during jupiter hour. It took my Jup high and definitely brought it down a bit too low for my liking. I sprayed a little more of the jupiter in sag water and was right back on my Jup high.
I noticed throughout the day I did everything I needed to do without thinking twice. I had a task that I knew would take hours, that had multiple steps, that I just motored through. I had originally planned to do one part one day, and finish the rest the next.
When I kept feeling tired or like I should take a break, I noticed that there was this drive in me that kept powering me forward to get it done. I kept saying what if I just kept going and I’ll take a break at the next part? The next part would come and I said the same thing. Before I knew it, the task was finished in record timing.
I also found I was courageous and gave a last minute reading that I typically wouldn’t, that went really well. I’m shocked that the kolonia alone packed such a powerful punch. Paired with Jupiter in sag made everything very fun and enjoyable.
I love this product! I've been using it for months with great success as a pre-workout cleanse for my hands before applying the oil or just on its own. I really enjoy the scent profile especially--it smells like your grandpa's best cologne layered with saffron. I notice that it has an almost instant clearing of focus for me....when I get this out and use it my energy focuses and I am able to step into my workout with single minded focus...a real gift if you do martial arts. I highly recommend!
Not sure how to engage with Antares? I find that the energetically cleansing and light format of kolonias are some of the best ways to go about it. I found again, using Antares kolonia was enough "oomph" to give that Antarian flavor without it feeling overwhelming. Pairs well with DA materia as well. I also found that it facilitates martial reflection by again clearing a space for that to happen. I would say it is still somewhat vigorous and would engage with it during the day.
I’m so glad that this is part of the Antares series. I have a very powerful natal Mars and I’m careful about how I engage with any energy that’s Mars-y. This kolonía is so purifying, I always use it before working with any of the other Antares materia, and it helps channel that energy so effectively. It’s really indispensable for working with Antares and Martial energies, super grateful for this!
My natal Mars is exalted in Cap but unhelpfully crammed in the 12th house; it's a part of me that I like but which feels demonised and unsupported by the outside world in various ways. The kolonia feels like a welcome clearing of the pipes to approach, draw on and express this energy, and I love the saffron scent and colour.
i have mars in detriment in my natal so i bought this kolonia in hopes of giving him a little extra boost. i've been mindful to only apply during the days and hours of benefic planets and the results have been wonderful. clearing up long unsettled arguments, having more motivation to do work that i've been putting off, feeling general increases in vital energy. highly recommend all around!
While I don't have kolonía from every series, I've found that I am drawn to them for different reasons. For the Antares series, I wanted to see what kind of rebooting it might offer for my spirit before I invested in the Antares oil (I have some tricky placements nearby in my natal chart). It's the first kolonía that has felt like it energized and grounded simultaneously, so I often turn to it on Monday mornings when it is challenging to get my game face on for work.
The smell reminds me of the incense used during vespers, so I don't think I could ever grow tired of the scent! I think this has been the gentlest way to ease into the Antares materia as it reframes my mindset without the potential weight of using the oils or incense directly on myself. If you are a bit hesitant to jump right in full force (per Kaitlin's wonderful write-up), the kolonía might be a good start for you too.
I’ve used the Antares kolonia alongside the water and oil over the past few weeks.
It hits heavier than the hydrosol but invigorates and motivates to move the blood in the body. I’ve used it before arduous fieldwork and workouts with great ease.
I use it very early in the morning and wakes me up faster than my coffee takes to make and lets me complete my martial tasks with a sense of immediacy, purpose, and motivation.
I am a long time devotee of S+S materia. Antares series was both calling to me and at the same time I was hesitant, not being sure how it might land for me, so I followed some advice to start with the Kolonia. I have followed Kait's Kolonia Clearing protocol with this materia and it has become a go-to for me on days when I feel disconnected from myself, and when I need an extra boost of courage to navigate through something that I may have previously avoided out of fear. Highly recommend for use as clearing, especially for those who have not yet ventured into the Antares series!
I don't feel like kolonia are an essential baseline for every series I use, but I notice a huge difference for the better when I clear with Antares kolonia before applying any of the oils. I struggle with fatigue and I always feel a light but noticeable boost when I sweep this through my aura before exercise or an activity that requires physical energy.
