This is the perfect bpal for policy writing, zoom calls, working remote, onboarding new hires, and for throwing together training decks for work. I'm not a creative or artsy person by any means. Using Honey + Quicksilver shines a light on me, brings attention to my skills, and enables me to prolifically pump out high quality, high word count content for work. Not quite the same way Mercury materia works for me, this is more dialed in to very specific writing and policy abundance.
This oil is fantastic for adding an extra sparkle of fun and ease to social situations and parties. I love the lightness and sweetness it imparts but the magic also slides interactions effortlessly from bubbly to meaningful and back again. I feel that it is an oil for connecting with others and it does so in whatever way is the most appropriate for the situation. It also smells beautiful.
Absolutely love this oil! My experience has been that this oil envelops and heightens the senses and opens one to inspiration and experiencing and attuning to the beauty of what is going on. It is great for lively conversation and working on diverse modes of creative expression. I have used it before going to the beach to write poetry to great effects. Plus love the scent!
First of all, this smells absolutely amazing. As others have said, it lends a honeyed quality to your words and speech. I wore this on a day I had to give a presentation at work and it went off without a hitch. My thoughts seemed to translate into words effortlessly and the words just flowed from me. Needless to say, I was very pleased. If you're looking for something to help sweeten your communications and allow them to flow more smoothly, you can't go wrong with this one.
From a smell perspective, Honey & Quicksilver smells strongly of lemongrass on wet, and then dries to a very honeyed roses + milk herbs. It works like honeyed, for your tongue and your words. I was able to bang out a report I had been struggling with all week.
I love this BPAL, the scent is amazing.
I wore it throughout the Xmas holiday season and felt very light, chatty and supported in social situations. I will be leaning on this BPAL for entertaining and social activities. The smell makes me so happy. Thank you!
Oh god in heaven be wary wearing this on a business Zoom call, or in environments where keeping it brief is encouraged. It's so very Gemini, with a twist. It took a while to settle on the adjective: "chirpy". I recognized the feeling as when I get on a really nerdy tear and perhaps don't realize I am taking over a conversation--but if everyone is into what I'm discussing, is it really a problem? I found it charming, disarming, and maybe should experiment with it in more casual artistic contexts, but it definitely makes you want to *chat*.
Wore to a song circle that involves learning a new language, absolutely enhanced the joy, fun and upbeat conviviality to our gathering (some JEV powder was in the mix too). In addition to it's efficacy, the scent of Honey and Quicksilver started a little thread in the community forum and for good reason! here's my take:
Honey and Quicksilver reminds me at first of Zebra gum from when I was a kid and then a little later, a beautifully scented lemongrass candle from when I was a teenager that I could never find again! That hint of lemongrass reminds of DA Lord of the Sacred Eye (serious fave) and the self-respect it engenders. Curious where it will lead next, this does feel like a very special BPAL. Love the descriptions of scent here, the honey and green herb spoke to my senses!
I love this scent and it has proven to be so effective and valuable to me. All day long I talk, convince, persuade in my line of work. Quicksilver hits all the right notes for particularly what I need to think on my toes and let my tongue dance through the day.
I love love love this one. It's a Gemini's dream. We love to talk and this reeeeeally adds the effervescence to our words. This is the one for me.
