Fruitful Mother of Thousands
Scatter in me the seeds
Of a thousand saplings.
Let grow a grassy heaven.
On my brow: a sun.
This bliss is yours, Living
World, and alone it endures.
Music at midnight.
Lovers hand in hand
By daylight, moonlight.
Living World, hold me
In your mouth,
Slip on your frivolous shoes
And dance with me.

This is an oil that celebrates all that is fertile, rich, and bountiful – an oil of abundance and growth, of sensuality and inspiration rooted in the pleasures and joys of the natural world. It is the curl of a rose petal, the honey-gold of a sunbeam, the renewing breath of spring’s first breezes. It is the generative and propagative impulse merging with the drive to express delight through art. Bliss and gladness, pleasure and exultation. This is the joy that creates new life.
This oil is also an oil of physical beauty and charm, of self-respect and self-love. It is a glamour oil that renews and fortifies your love of yourself, your love of others, and your love of the world around you.
Fruitful Mother of Thousands also functions as a unique lust and passion blend, one rooted in sensuality, pleasure, and luxury.

Friday, March 27, 2020. Hour of Venus. Chart in image gallery.
This has been my constant companion for a while and I'm so sad to be almost done with the bottle. But she has done her work. I know ways of caring for myself now that I didn't before.
I wore this to a Venus ritual layered with the OG Venus in Libra oil and oh my goddess the combo smells absolutely lovely! Like berries and honey and cream cake and everything sweet and decadently delicious!!! I couldn't stop sniffing my wrists and I could smell it even when I went to bed hours later thank you Kaitlin and Elizabeth for this fabulous scent!
At first, I was a bit overwhelmed by the floral notes in this perfume and almost offered it up to trade on the secondary market... SO GLAD I gave it a chance to grow on me! It's entirely possible that the energy of the Empress Herself was a bit much for me to metabolize at first, since self love etc doesn't exactly come naturally to me... But lately, on the special occasions that I opt for this perfume, I feel absolutely on top of the world when wearing it. Flirty, fun, composed, benevolent, and a little self indulgent (in a fabulous way). Quite a treat!
this is a magnificent oil to every time I wear it, I have such an wonderful experience. It makes me confident and my connection to others is strongly boosted. It feels just magical.
I love this oil!! I feel so empowered, so sensual, sexy and confident when i wear this oil. I feel more open and receptive to love, to joy and laughter. It smell divine and draws people to me. This oil is truly magical, and a little goes a long way.
I feel really strong and confident when I put this on, like the embodiment of my own personal power. I feel like I can walk taller, that I had more secure footing, that I understood my place in the world (and could grow upwards from there). The Empress really is the right name for this, I can't think of another way to describe it except ethereal feminine strength an growth, a gentle power, an ease and comfort in self, a deep love of self.
This feels...luxurious, for lack of a better word. Like someone's thrown a golden mantle over your shoulders that would cost several fortunes and you're not sure you're worthy of wearing. But because it's the Empress, you have to listen to that voice that says, "yes, you are, you are worthy of this, you have always been worthy of this, and SO MUCH MORE."
I'm quite certain I've never experienced such raw, visceral reactions or the actual sensation? awareness? of change/transformation with any materia the way that I have with Empress. The whole series resonates with me unlike anything has ever resonated with me before. And no, I don't mean "unlike any other series" - I literally mean "unlike anything in existence that I've personally come into contact with" haha. It's truly bizarre, but I feel an uncannily deep bond with this materia. Fruitful Mother is one of the standouts; she surpassed my high expectations (and desires). This ritual perfume is magic in the truest sense. I love & cherish it more than I can express <3
listen y’all... she works FAST. this was my first order ever, and i love it! fruitful mother cut through the fog in my brain and encouraged creativity, which led me to create one of my most insightful pieces. she whips your ass into shape, i’ve been able to do more than one errand in a day with her! i also use her for emotional support, and she definitely keeps me calm and lessens my anxiety in public and social situations. i’d buy more if i could!
What moves me most about the Fruitful Mother -- are the deeper notes which my soul instantly recognize -- and somehow I am more creative, have more to share.
I am just-plain-connected to gosh-darn-beauty.
It's transformative and familiar -- all at the same time.
