Ironically, I have no words that seems sufficient to convey how crucial this materia has become for me. I freelance as a copywriter, and a few quick spritzes of Mercury Quicksilver water sharpens my mind and gets the words flowing. It has become a major go-to, and I'm currently re-ordering the 2oz with 1/3 left of my smaller bottle lest I run out.
I use this when I’m going to be in social situations. I have a bit of social anxiety (which I am usually in denial about) and tend to self sabotage by showing a bit too much of an edge or cynicism. Quicksilver Tongue alerts me to the great fun we are all about to have when the conversation starts! Hasn’t failed me yet and has made some stressful situations into great memories and relationship builders.
Whenever I've been on a writing tear and am in that weird place where I'm getting kinda hungry and a little tired but don't want to break my creative streak just yet, this is the stuff I turn to. QT water instantly refreshes me, making my whole body seem to sigh with satisfaction at the first hit of that lovely, soft aroma. It resettles me in my body and allows me to take my sweet time, wrapping things up neatly and satisfactorily. In fact, the time-altering effects really are pretty weird! Time tends to lose meaning when this series is employed, and the water has reminded me of that again and again. Of all my S+S items, this little spray bottle actually seems to be diminishing quickly! Most S+S wares last me way longer than makes any kind of rational sense, but this water is definitely getting used up!
If you are looking for the most beautiful water, Quicksilver Tongue is like a silverly lava lamp once shaken up and just breath-taking to look at!
In terms of its effects, I would recommend using these waters when you want to bring delight and good vibes to a space and your writing. I made the mistake of spraying myself with QT to get some serious writing done (think job applications / performance-based writing). It was the first time I realized how unhelpful materia can be when used for purposes outside its purview! I didn't use this for some time, because I thought it was off or I didn't gel with it. Nope! I just needed to find the right circumstances for it to shine or for me to shine with it.
So be sure to welcome all the good QT wants to bring to the moment and your writing. It sort of demands that you find the joy in it or (in lieu of that) find good vibes in being!
You do not need a special occasion to use this water - it feels really good to spray at any time. It is very helpful for group discussions and finding a common ground with colleagues who might think different than you. This series has an advantage above Venus-only materia in that it is absolutely acceptable to use it in the work-related situations.
This water is pure fun and ease in a bottle. Whenever I want to lighten or brighten up, I spritz with this and enjoy the soft buzz that follows. The scent and shimmer are both delightful in and of themselves, and a sense of play and social connectivity are always awakened and well supported by this water!
A really beautiful, shimmery silver-blue water. It smells lightly sweet and floral. I love giving my desk area and self a few sprays before writing or painting-related activities or social events. It helps me get into a more relaxed, loose, playful, and inspired headspace.
This is definitely the prettiest of all the S+S waters I have, and the effect is equally lovely! I’ve been slow to review the Quicksilver Tongue series because I’ve been trying to use it sparingly in anticipation of an upcoming project, but I’ve used the water enough times now that I feel comfortable sharing my thoughts. Personally, I find this spray to be the most helpful for blessing my creative tools (mostly pens, as well as my computer!). In my experience, it does make it quite a bit easier for me to switch into creative mode. I’ve also used it on a more limited basis as a spray for improved social communication, and it’s worked well for that purpose too! I will say that in my case, I’ve noticed that putting it directly on my skin can make me feel a bit itchy, but I haven’t had that problem when I’ve sprayed it on my clothes or another surface instead. Just a heads up to make sure to do a patch test, for anyone out there who has sensitive skin! In any case, I’ve found this spray both helpful and delightful to have around, and I’m very glad I purchased it.
Delicious-smelling and a great aid for looseness and having some plain old fun. I like to spray it in my office before I write nonfiction and on myself before I meet up with friends. Good times!
How pretty this series is. The muse makes herself known all over it. The little flowers in tact in the powder, the hypnotic shimmer in the hydrosol. You know it's inspiring when you can SEE that IT is inspired. Double that when you know it is a marriage between the vedic saraswati yoga and the tropical zodiac. I love this spray for instant shifts, and I think out of all the hydrosols I've used that this is the most dramatic of them all
