Do you offer consultations? Can you look at my chart?

Given time constraints (among other things!), Kaitlin (👋 hi, that’s me!) cannot offer consultations or custom recommendations based on natal charts or most other factors.

For guidance, please see this article 🔮

For remedial suggestions based on natal factors, we recommend Austin Coppock, Austin’s year II graduates, Freedom Cole, or any of the referrals Freedom may make.

Can I add to an order that has already been placed?

Yes! As long as the order has not shipped, you are welcome to place additional orders.

After they get packed, postage will be purchased, and you will be promptly refunded any excess.

Multiples are typically flagged for consolidation by the shipping platform automatically, so there is no need create a support ticket notifying us of dual+ orders (we’re almost never manning the support portal in real time in the workroom, so thank you for the consideration but it just ends up cluttering the inbox!)

If we miss combining them, Sphere + Sundry’s policy is to refund your excess shipping regardless 🤓

You are definitely invited to write in if you feel a refund has been missed, however! We enjoy offering custom services of this nature, but it does increase the odds of a fuck up…

 

Will you come on my Podcast/ YouTube/ &c?

You can ask (and thank you!), but probably not 😅

Keeping operations moving is a more than full time job, so at this point my focus is best kept on the actual work over media + promotion.

If you would like to send an invitation, a list is being kept for if/ when this changes. The offers and opportunities are genuinely appreciated!

There is so much more I would be doing if the time were available…
PLUS, I am weirdly shy 🙈

If I write asking a question that has already been answered in this FAQ will the answer be different?

Nope 😹

Still need help? Contact us…

Due to a high volume of emails, it’s not possible to respond to every request.

Correspondences regarding placed orders by existing clients have the highest priority.
If your request requires a personal response from Kaitlin, lead times are likely longer. Thank you for understanding 🙏

Long and personally involved messages regarding chart placements asking for recommendations will likely go unanswered,
because we do not offer personal consultations. Please see this article 
for guidance on making your selections! Thank you.

Testimonials(13)

  1. I use this almost daily, even if I have to mix it with other facial or hair oils to make it last. It smells absolutely divine, though it isn’t anywhere near overpowering. I always feel and look radiant, alluring, confident and grounded after application. I will also never forget my first time using it; I ordered an Uber to a show, and clicked on the wait-and-save option, as I was going out somewhat early. The car that picked me up was a sleek, black Mercedez Benz with neon pink lights on the inside. I had to double check that I didn’t accidentally order UberLux and payed extra. It felt like a nice nod from Venus and a most fitting ride for the Empress I was now a vessel of. When used with intention to seduce (I usually am just grateful for radiance and embodying/reflecting love or sex appeal) I am always successful in attracting and sustaining flirtations by anyone I am currently crushing on. This is fantastic for attention and playful self-assuredness.

  2. I like how subtle the scent of this oil is, I read other reviews and was worried it might be too strong. I’ve only used it a couple of times so far, but there is something that feels very comforting about it, almost immediately.
    Has helped me to feel more confident in a time where my skin hasn’t been its best (maskne has been a real issue).

  3. I can not believe how amazing this oil smells. Oe of the top smelling items S+S has created. It’s so buttery and decadent, I could just eat it. A little goes a long way and I am sure this will last me a long time. I haven’t used the oil for my hair, but I love to add a little to my face serums and face oils. At first I was worried it would encourage hair growth on my face but then I let that go and there’s been no unwanted results from using on the face. I do love to concentrate on my eyebrows with it though. It feels like an incredibly nourishing and beautifying treat for my skin. I love every single Empress item I’ve gotten and this one is just so luxurious. Even the bottle is fantastic.

  4. I wore this the day of a friend’s wedding and my hair looked amazing even though I spent the afternoon rushing around in humid Atlanta and didn’t give myself time to shower before the event. It’s the real deal.

  5. Wow, this stuff is the bees knees. I am an actor and decided to dip into this oil, along with the water from this series, for a performance I had to give. “Charm” is not something I’m able to turn on easily, but this oil really assisted me in channeling a character rich and delicious! It smells phenomenal, and I find it picks up on my inner artist/freak in a delicate and easeful way when worn in non-creative environments. Can’t wait to test out at a luscious gathering soon.

  6. I almost feel like I take this for granted because I use it every single day—to the point that I’m now spiking regular hair oil with a drop of this to try and go easy on the stuff. I don’t smell the gourmand in this, it’s straight up toasty hay + herbs I can’t identify + a touch of citrus. Reminds me of the Chinese medical halls of my childhood in the best way. I use it fresh out of the shower on damp hair, and let my hair air dry. This also does a really good job of taming frizz once hair is dry (I have long, wavy hair & I live on the equator. Aka humidity central). Really grateful to be able to experience magic in such a mundane part of life, and I wonder how much this has smoothed my path in ways I don’t even know…

  7. As I don’t want to promote lush hair growth on my face, I haven’t tried this as a skin serum. But it’s aces for kinky, curly, dry, frizzy hair. It smooths, softens, adds luster and a nice scent (when it first landed, it smells almost resiny, but with time it’s gotten a little bit foodier). The oils are really nice; I don’t wash my hair daily and this absorbs/coats nicely, never ever looking greasy or dingy even after a second/third day.

    Energetically this has felt like it bolsters me, also a little protective and nurturing. Wearing it out means things typically run smoothly. Huzzzahhhh!

  8. This oil is like dessert before breakfast. The nest of super fine hair left after decades of chapeau wearing is tamed into a slightly curly echo of a punky peak thanks to this viscous delicious. The nourishment seeping through my crown is a rainbow way to wake up in the morning too. A jar full of go-go juice wrapped in bronze surrounded by Siddhartha. The Yummiest.

  9. I love this as a hair product. It smells slightly of vanilla, and maybe cocoa? It smells sort of gourmand and now I’m just sniffing my own hair and hands. I don’t always love my hair because I have been blessed with a large amount of hair that is very pin straight. Feeling like I’m having a great hair day is not usual but this gives you insta-great hair day.

  10. This oil is absolutely divine. I bought it for both my partner and I (he’s the beard-haver and we have both been obsessed with the way it has elevated both how we feel about ourselves and how we want to take care of ourselves. I have been fully shaving my head for 2.5 years, and as soon as I started using this Empress oil I felt inclined for the first time in a very long time to do something more intentional and different with my appearance. I started growing my hair out a bit and even died it pink! I am appreciating my appearance for the first time in a long time, and I know the Empress series as a whole (I’ve also been using the oil, incense and BPALs) is seriously aiding me in re-imagining myself and feeling empowered to express myself authentically. Thank you Empress!! Thank you Kaitlin!

  12. This whole series is deeply transformative, but this hair oil is my favorite. A lot of hair products can make my can make my hair look dingy, but this oil makes it look luminous and shiny. It also helps with frizz that is inevitable for us curly-haired folk. Without a doubt it makes me look and feel better before I go about my day. It has also inspired me to start a beauty regimen and to start playing around with make up and glamour magic! Love it. Love it. Love it.

  13. I bought this item specifically for my mustache and it is amazing. The oil smells divine and a little bit is all you need. Just the right consistency. Not only does it make me feel more attractive, it also makes my mustache softer, more glamorous and fuller. It really does facilitate hair growth, much more than I was expecting. This product is also great for razor irritation and dry skin, especially that flaky dry skin one gets around the mouth or under facial hair (“beard-ruff”).

    I think that these magical beauty/wellness products are perhaps the most brilliant innovation S+S have produced, and I love seeing them alongside more traditional offerings like incense and candles. This oil is superior in quality to any commercial beard oil I have tried and the magical effects are very potent. It’s been a fantastic addition to my zoom meetings and I am looking forward to wearing it out and about when the time comes. I love the handsome and dashing energy it brings and I think that a lot of men would be thrilled with this product if they gave it a try.
