We have a shiny new support portal

Open the Help Desk

It’ll be fleshed out over time, so you might not be able to find the answer you need just yet.

Please do get in the habit of trying though — to reduce the support burden on Client Services, so we can spend less time answering support inquiries and more on providing expeditious resolution!

If you know for sure you already need assistance,
hop straight to opening a support ticket.

This is the best way to get inquiries directly to Kaitlin since, due to a large volume and the need to focus, she does not monitor DMs on any social media platform. It’ll be assigned to her and she will try to respond when there is bandwidth. Thank you for understanding!

  1. Who knew upholding boundaries could smell so good? I have been successfully pairing the delicious perfume with Pompilus for most “dealing with dickheads” situations. Aside from smelling like a well kemp person who knows her shit, it does indeed let me step into my power and make friends out of enemies. Disclaimer: this combo doesn’t work on super extreme narcissists. I think the boundaries piss them off. Ha. Otherwise, I have built a strong client base I am attributing in part to this combo.

  2. This perfume reminds me of a really competent and experienced lawyer who charges a lot for their work! Look the part, know their sh*t.

  3. Used this for the first time today to help me settle a dispute with an internet provider, and it went really well. I was preparing myself for a lengthy discussion and plenty of arguments. And while there were some confusion, eventually a senior officer helped (although said officer did ignore me the whole time) which immediately settled the matter.

    Another thing I noticed about Auctoritas, used along with the DA II water, was that my posture became better. I have a bad habit of slouching and realized that I was standing and sitting straight throughout the day.

    Definitely recommend this! I’m amazed at the effect this has on me, especially since the effect of most materia I’ve used tend to be more subtle and takes time for me to notice.

  4. Auctoritas is my go to DA BPAL. It feels like a best friend – or perhaps better said – it helps me to be my own best friend. I feel much more able to make good decisions for myself, stand up for my worth, and overall have a much more solid and effortless presence as my authentic self. Highly recommend!

  5. The strongest analogy to me is that Auctoritas is an Aldebaran oil hack. Whereas the Aldebaran oil has will + drive thrown in, Auctoritas gives you that impression of sovereignty without the “doing part”. If anyone needs to throw presence around like a brick through a window, Auctoritas helps you with that. If you already have Presence +5, ask yourself if/when you need an additional +10 to your presence rolls though. I would pair Auctoritas with another DA item to ensure that all that presence also doesn’t garner unwanted negative attention.

    Also out of the DA2 items, which all seem to provide protection via stealth, this is the one DA2 item that is not about stealth but instead about commanding the spotlight. (You might struggle to keep your light underneath an invisibility cloak, is all I’m saying! Also be careful with blinding others if you do a reveal).

  6. This is a really motivating oil for me. I feel composed, assured of myself and it’s been so nice to immediately be taken seriously/ person of authority in the workplace
    (I look young so it’s been a *thing* my entire working life). It’s a great balance of projecting self confidence without any semblance of ‘overdoing’ it or arrogance. It smells great too!

  7. My favorite BPAL in this series. It’s difficult to balance empathy and good boundaries but it’s almost effortless with this. Especially good to apply before bed after a whirlwind day – wake up feeling centered and purposeful.

  8. I used this BPAL alongside others from the series to settle a lawsuit and dispute that had dragged on for nearly 2 years. Enthusiastically recommended!

  9. On the recommendation of a friend, I picked up Autoritas and Eternal Flame BPALs. I use them together as a floor wash in my home. The two BPALs together create a warm and nourishing and protective environment for my teenagers. I have noticed an increase in their self confidence, independence and responsibility. I highly recommend the combination.
