This hydrosol can be used as a sort of "calming Jupiterian buffer" before either work or sleep for me. I sometimes use it after cleansing with my Kolonia from this series for added support in all things Jupiter. Additionally, I find this hydrosol relaxing enough to use it to unwind before recreational activities, or to get on the way to feeling better when more stressed than usual.
I was really excited to get butter ocean, it felt like something that has been needed in my life for quite a while. This is an excellent series, it is extremely comforting and is excellent for sleep and dreaming. It does have quite a sweet pleasant smell to it as well. I love using this for aiding in calming down from stresses and bouts of anxiety- it is extremely effective. Highly recommended!
I sprayed this before a massage this afternoon and it was the most intensely relaxing session with my regular masseuse. I'd planned for some paddleboarding afterwards, but headed home for a nap... and woke up in that disorienting state where you don't know what day or time or place it is. Which was healing - to get out of my mundane work mind and enter into another dimension of being. Sometimes I think Butter Ocean has no effect on me - then I experience it profoundly. Conclusion is to engage it during restorative practices rather than an intervention in my work day.
I spray my sheets with this water before bed especially if I have had a long day or have worked with any materia that winds me up (exalted mercury--looking at you bestie lol). This wasn't instant love, I will admit I didn't understand the power of the relaxation this hydro could provide. I am now repurchasing this again because it has become very helpful for my rest.
I've found that this spray is REALLY good for sleep, which was not why I bought it but I'm so glad I did. I'll spray it on my bed sheets and right above my head before sleep, but I'll also use it in the day time to help smooth all the rough edges of the day. It's a subtle effect but really nice!
I started using this spray before going to work. It didn't have an immediate, bombastic impact like some other series have, but over time I've noticed the work get easier. My coworkers have gotten better at expressing what they need from me, and I've been sending in work that's only gotten minor revisions. Meeting times have shortened. The work seems to be getting done faster than usual, and the newest tasks assigned to me are my favorite kinds of upkeep and administrative work. There's about to be a major change in leadership, but people have been calm and focused in meetings instead of stressed and anxious. Just good stuff!
This has quickly become my most-used hydrosol. I most often do a single spray above my head right before bed because I've been getting such great sleep when I do, but I've also had good results using it in the daytime when I need a calming boost. My experience has been that it's not at all drowsy-making like some other materia can be, and also not overly buzzing in the way of Jupiter in Sag. Just a calm sense of well-being that improves my experience of whatever part of the day I find myself in.
The scent is somehow both refreshing and buttery, in a really pleasant way. Truly love this stuff.
Quieter than other Jupiter series for me but excellent for chilling out and winding down. I like it in all four corners of a room. I’ve found 3 sprays to be the optimal dosage, which means it can go fast but I would guess if you’re not trying to bring out the relaxing/chill energies a single spray in the morning could be nice. Works well on candles too which surprised me!
Asclepius is the only hydrosol that I've stuck with, until BO came on the scene. When I was in the throes of the dreaded dual anxious and depressed state that these times are now known for, I was more than nudged to add this to my collection of benefic medicines. Spraying it on my bed linens not only helps me wind down gently at night, but keeps the black dog at bay in the liminal morning hours, when its bite would otherwise be worse than its bark. Another spray post-shower helps to further set the day's more positive tone. Grateful X 1000.
I vibe with this series very well, and I use this water on a near-daily basis. I usually spray it on either before work or in my hair after I've shampooed and showered. I wish I could convey the comforting, good vibes that this series emanates. I truly feel like I'm insulated from negativity, and as of late I've been managing to hold on to more of my money despite the rising cost of everything. I have many items from this series, but this is definitely the one I use the most.
