We have a shiny new support portal

Open the Help Desk

It’ll be fleshed out over time, so you might not be able to find the answer you need just yet.

Please do get in the habit of trying though — to reduce the support burden on Client Services, so we can spend less time answering support inquiries and more on providing expeditious resolution!

If you know for sure you already need assistance,
hop straight to opening a support ticket.

This is the best way to get inquiries directly to Kaitlin since, due to a large volume and the need to focus, she does not monitor DMs on any social media platform. It’ll be assigned to her and she will try to respond when there is bandwidth. Thank you for understanding!

Luna in Cancer BPALS

Luna in Cancer BPALS



Indie perfume QUEEN, long-time collaborator, and most excellent magical practitioner Elizabeth Barrial rides again!

Note for anyone nerve wracked regarding emotional or mental instability re: Luna in Cancer, Beth’s contributions are always more mediated, pre-filtered versions of the energy than the raw materia Sphere + Sundry creates. If a perfume description fits your own intent, they are always one of the “safest” items from any series, but still very potent!

When in doubt, divine…


Thou silver Deity of secret Night,
    Direct my footsteps through the Woodland Shade,
Thou conscious Witness of unknown delight,
    The Lover’s Guardian, and the Muse’s Aid. 

By thy pale beams I solitary rove,
    To thee my tender Grief confide,
Serenely sweet you gild the silent Grove,
    My Friend, my Goddess and my Guide. 

E’en thee, fair Queen, from thy amazing height
    The Charms of young Endymion drew,
Veil’d with the Mantle of concealing Night,
    With all thy Greatness, and thy Coldness too.

– Lady Mary Wortley Montagu

  1. Lover’s Guardian: perhaps an unconventional use? I have given this as an offering to the ancestors and it has quickly cooled heads in this household. The scent is reminiscent of a teething toy I had as a baby as well, so although it’s meant for fighting couples…this has been an all-round soother and go-to, up and down the timeline.

  2. I was gifted Mantle of Concealing Night for Christmas last year and have been wearing it regularly since! I’m a perfume fanatic and jump between scents often, but I keep finding myself returning to this bottle. The scent is extremely soothing and dreamy, like a balmy, beautiful night (I’ve been complimented on it multiple times). I usually wear it when I’m reading natal charts or when I feel anxious (or both)! I’ve found that it seems to calm down my nerves considerably and also helps me to have the focus to give thorough natal readings. I’ll be trying it while water scrying soon, but so far it’s worked wonders and smells amazing!

  3. I lost both of my parents just under eighteen months apart, and my grief has been as complex as my relationships with them were. To Thee My Tender Grief Confide has been an incredible balm for this. I rub it into my chest, and my chest muscles immediately loosen up. It stops the tears and rumination, so that I don’t get so overwhelmed by sadness that I lose the rest of my day or night to it. (Or have a longer night than I would have otherwise, since it also helps me fall asleep on nights when I miss my parents particularly strongly.)

    Everything is still so hard. But every little bit helps — and this little bottle helps a lot.

  4. Each time I use Mantle of Concealing night it makes me feel more at ease and is perfect to have wonderful dreams. I tend to apply it more at night to just unwind and let my body and mind rest from all the stuff from the day.

  5. The BPAL Mantle of Concealing Night has become one of my favorite perfume oils of all time. It feels like being wrapped in a soft old shawl that belonged to my grandmother. It brings me comfort. I tend to apply it in the evening – after a bath is divine – as a balm for relieving the stresses of the day. I’ve also found it’s a helpful aid for pendulum divination. Somehow the signals come through more clearly. I adore it.

  6. TW: Eating issues

    As someone with a difficulty with nourishing and caring for myself, the mantle of concealing light (and the whole series) has been so so so helpful for deepening my relationship with my body and pleasure and joy. I’m so thankful for the ways in which it seems to be breaking generational curses around eating and difficulties around providing yourself with care.

  7. Purchased LOVER’S GUARDIAN to support a disruptive Uranus in our 7th house squaring his Uranus and MC. It’s been a rough go but the addition of LG along with the rest of LiC has seemed to lift us out of the free fall – I call this BPAL couple counseling in a bottle. TO THEE MY TENDER GRIEF CONFIDE for my clients and my family who God knows have been facing some of their most challenging times of their lives. It extends my bandwidth to include not only their grief but mine as well. So grateful for this series.

  8. I ordered LOVER’S GUARDIAN and TO THEE MY TENDER GRIEF CONFIDE. I loooove them. Both are gentle, nurturing, and comforting overall. I feel a little softer, less guarded, and more sensitive when I use them. I tend to sleep more deeply and want to loll in bed in the mornings 🙂 .

  9. I ordered the entire set and every one of them is extremely comforting; they all have mouth-feel, actual taste, as you apply them. The Luna series is very subtle for me, possibly because I have natal Moon in Cancer opposite Neptune and Uranus, sextile Venus as-is – I’m just maybe already “a certain way” haha. But it is *lovely, and I do notice that people confide in me more, seek me for psychological comfort, which I am always happy to receive and give.

  10. Muse’s Aid! What a joy! I absolutely love the scent of star jasmine, and it rides close to my skin for sooo long, even compared to other BPALs – six or eight hours, even overnight sometimes. Since I started wearing it semi-regularly I’ve not only engaged with my preferred artistic mediums but also spontaneously started some experimental pursuits, too.

  11. I’ve been using this for dream incubation and it is very effective thank you

  12. This review is for MANTLE OF CONCEALING NIGHT.

    Gosh, this oil is so powerful. I’ve only used it once with the intent of indulging in the more transitory, magical affect of Luna in Cancer (vs the emotional deep diving). Whilst it absolutely did that – I felt very able to enjoy the moment and like myself in a sort of nebulous lunar way – I think it also sparked off me needing to act upon some emotional unease I’d been experiencing for a while. I’m glad I had the push to address the situation, but this duality of the moon is def something to keep in mind.
