Luna in Cancer Body Butter
$30.00 – $73.00
100% organic: calamus root, mugwort, watercress, chamomile, ashwagandha, calendula, california poppy, all heal, white lotus, milky oat tops, orris root, blue poppy seeds, flax seed, and white willow bark.
Ritually immersed in a proprietary blend of skin soothing oils post-fumigation during Luna in Cancer’s election, and left to slumber for many moons. Strained and combined with organic shea butter and coconut oil on Luna’s day and hour, chilled, and whipped. Smells like… the ghost of chamomile.
Body Butters are less physically altering, explicitly “medicinal” forms compared to Salves, but with the same herbs in lighter concentrations, leading many to apply BBs by day and Salves by night.
Use to attune to the Lunar sphere and to potentiate other materia and talismans.
+ all the other stuff that’s been covered to death elsewhere
This batch of Luna in Cancer Body Butters was stiffened using more shea butter than usual, to help offset the Summer heat in our residing hemisphere. Looking forward to reports in the Client Community about if this formula is preferred + how well it holds up!
If yours does happen to melt in transit, it can be put in the refrigerator and then re-whipped, or used as-is left to its own devices. It doesn’t impact its magical efficacy or nourishing properties in any way. It can also be melted on purpose and used as a warm massage oil.
Offered in a 2 oz glass jar for $30, or 6 oz bulk pot for $73
Note: These Body Butters will go out of stock and be resurrected as additional batches get (quite literally) whipped up.

This body butter was the first materia I ever used, and though I’ve tried and loved several other series since, it remains one of my favorites. With a natal Capricorn moon trine Venus in Virgo and sextile Saturn in Scorpio, it gives me a visceral but cool warm and fuzzy feeling without any sense of ungroundedness. It’s a relieving salve in moments of anger/frustration, and suuuuper cuddly when already feeling content (literally “came to” on the sofa with my arms wrapped around my partner’s legs once with no memory of putting them there!). I’m planning to get oil and salts from this series next, and I’d definitely recommend the body butter as a great intro to the series because it’s easy to dose lightly.
This body butter is somehow warm and cool/refreshing at the same time. It smells like chamomile and offers a calm and present vibe. I have Luna in Cancer in my natal chart and everything from this line so far has been soothing and empowering for me. It layers well with everything!
Body Butters and Salves are quickly becoming my favorite form of magical materia. The Luna in Cancer body butter is indeed stiffer and a more dense formula than the other body butters I use, but I like it. A little goes a VERY long way and I enjoy the sensation of warming up the little chunk of magic in my hands and feeling it melt into a warm, enchanting oil. I used the body butter for a Moon class last night and it both heightened my senses and relaxed me. I plan on using it full moon work on the 7th as well. The smell is soft and herbal and absolutely transcendental.
I LOVE this body butter! It’s my first one from S+, and I think body butter just might be my new favorite form of materia! I use this in conjunction with Asclepius I.I, and it has helped the healing effects to stick around for much longer, and it’s great for massage. When I use this, I feel a strengthened awareness of bodily sensations, filtered through the lens of accompanying materia. I like to use it with Asclepius I.I before stretching and self-massage to alleviate pains related to TMJD, and with this combo, I’m more aware of my bodily sensations and have discovered new movements and stretches that have helped my pain levels significantly. I also use it alongside Exalted Venus II, which is such a luxurious combination. My natal Venus and Moon in mutual reception rejoice <3. It's really wonderful stuff, and I will definitely repurchase this. Oh…and it smells DIVINE.
First off, the BB is very thick and requires more rubbing to really incorporate into the skin but it’s worth it. Among the more mundane things it accomplished was to eliminate a rough patch on my knee when nothing else worked so that’s nice!
I’ve been layering it with Regulus and Empress and both make great dance partners for Luna. Regulus makes for a bright confident comfort and fortifying warmth that infuses the atmosphere around you. Combined with Empress it provides a laser clarity about what’s really important and gives you the means to seize it. On its own I didn’t feel a huge difference from my baseline, but then I am a moon in cancer native after all. Overall it fine hones intuition and surrounds with comfort or as the Danes would say “Hygge”, not to be missed.
Going slowly with this series, but I already LOVE the body butter. I apply it to the base of my neck before going to bed, and it really helps me sleep. Sometimes, I also use it specifically to amplify Ascelpius and/or Immortal Heart, and that seems to work for me. I’ve also used it with Fomalhaut oil to good effect. I have found this to be gentle so far, not something to be afraid of. <3
