Mercury in Gemini Body Butter
$33.00 – $78.00
Organic and wildcrafted chickweed, lemongrass, bayberry root, and seeds of caraway, fennel, celery, and coriander were fumigated with frankincense during our Mercury in Gemini election, combined with a proprietary blend of safflower, sweet almond, apricot kernel, and jojoba oils.
These were left to incubate for many, many moons, and then combined with organic shea butter and coconut oil before being whipped with a refreshing, stimulating blend of Mercurial essential oils.
Brings speed to the thought process, bounce to the step, and lightness to being. Diurnal or social use advised!
Offered in a 2 oz pot for $33 or a 6 oz bulk pot for $72.

This body butter feels light, physically and spiritually. Doesn't mean it's not a heavy hitter. It's a pleasant but not overwhelming scent, and the butter is smooth, quick-absorbing and creamy. It definitely helps focus and speed, and improves my ability to multitask without getting distracted (not normally a strong suite). I have Gemini in the 4th house and the weekend I got this order I cleaned my loft bedroom - which was a task I had found overwhelming and couldn't bring myself to do for far longer than I'm willing to admit on the internet. This body butter has continued to be a keen ally for housework.
The scent is very subtle and complex, and wears lightly. I love the energy boost this materia provides! It does what I often wish coffee could/would, without the jittery side effects.
Mercury in Gemini has been the easiest variant for me to engage in. Mercury Cazimi was very solar, and Exalted Mercury hits a hard working stellium on my chart. Mercury in Gemini feels more effortless - and is all about pivoting. Life doesn't always go your way but being able to move past that and focus on other things has been MiG's gift. I love the body butter because it gives a light overlay of that energy that pairs well with other Mercury materia or materia from other series. Perfect for when you know you have to flow with whatever today will throw you.
I took the advice to applying to the feet in order to expedite travel time and my Bay Area travel times are running close at the absolute minimum. Cars change lanes for no apparent reason and a patch of open road appears.
Peak commute gridlock is a whole other beast - and here's where it really shines, imho - as long as you give Mercury a little room to work with. I opted for the backroad and... nobody else was on it. Gorgeous backroads and the opportunity to have fun with the 6-speed. Win. Spotted a big fat raven (rare, this close to the city). Cool and omen-ous. These backroads took me by the bookstore, so I decided to pop to see if they'd randomly have a book on Inanna I was looking for - and they did - for $7. Not far from it they had a book called The Raven and the Totem - a book which contains 60 Alaskan Native traditional stories - one of the few of its kind.
As far as the practical: feels great, works with my overly sensitive skin (where most sweet almond things don't), and the smell is refreshing yet subtle.
This is wonderful! My dreams are interesting, I think of something and it happens better than I'd imagined, all kinds of good stuff in this. Not only that, it was full to the brim, right to the top of the jar!
I am using this butter on my hands during the daytime since I received it. The butter has delightful smell of fennel, very light pleasant texture that melts easily on the skin, and pleasant uplifting charge that makes you want to do something - to reply to that email, to read that article, to write this review :)
Kate likened MiG to sipping coffee vs EM to maybe adderall. MiG body butter is subtle, calm, and hits me less like truck going 90 miles per hour. Exalted Mercury is one of my absolute favorite series to work with, but it's INTENSE and FAST and can be a little harsh. I'm a pretty social introvert and EM unlocks my *talking mode*. Mercury in Gemini is the more polite, mild, reserved cousin to EM. I ease into it, I acclimate to it, I wade into the waters rather than dive off the diving tower face first. I love both for different reasons, but MiG is so kind and caring with how it presents itself. Texture wise MiG is softer and more whipped (?). I've only been using this butter for a few days but it's already a favorite.
