Quickview Series, Venus in Libra, Bath + Beauty, Collaborations, S+ Moon Goddess Magick Apothecary
As goes the Orphic Hymn to Aphrodite —
Heav’nly, illustrious, laughter-loving queen, sea-born, night-loving, of an awesome mien…
Living, breathing avatar of Venus herself, Sarah Collins of Moon Goddess Magick Apothecary, collaborated with Sphere + Sundry on the equivalent election in her location to create a stunning hair and body oil, Sea Born Beauty. Sarah was chosen for this series because of her extensive background in formulating magically infused goods for ritual, beauty, and self-care, and we are thrilled to be able to offer her talents to our valued clients!
Of this custom blend, Sarah reveals —
A seductive hair and body oil meant to evoke the magnetic allure of Venus. Created during the planetary hour of Venus, on her day (Friday) in an intimate ritual setting. Offerings of sweetly scented, freshly plucked jasmine, were laid at the feet of Aphrodite, a hymn read aloud in her honor, and her rose shaped circular procession though the cosmos, drawn on parchment. Witchcrafted with the intent to imbue the glamorous and sensual energy of Venus, into your own. A small liquid amulet to anoint oneself, bringing forth self-confidence and strength. A bewitchingly fragrant talisman that entices those around you, enchanting them through awe inspiring power of scent. This blend creates a powerful sense of self-love and self-confidence, captivating the senses of the wearer and those near by. A nutrient rich oil that adds a luster and sensual power to your mien. Lovingly made with rich organic plant based oils that nourish and strengthen your hair. For the skin, this oil protects from dryness, adds a light shine, and a soft inviting fragrance of jasmine flowers. Ritually anoint oneself during the hour of Venus to intensify these qualities, both magical and physical.
Argan oil, jasmine, elderflower, pomegranate, and rose quartz, ritually combined during the day and hour of Venus in conjunction with the rest of the Venus in Libra series.
Available in a 1oz glass bottle with dropper for $35.
Quickview Moon-Neptune in Pisces, Sundry, Bath + Beauty
The most recent Full Pisces Moon oversaw the combination of genuine salt water pearls, powdered, and fine sugar, alongside other high quality, natural ingredients. The result is a gentle and luxurious polish, which can be used to exfoliate the face, neck, and décolletage, leaving your skin smooth and baby soft.
Pearl has been used for thousands of years as a natural beautifying agent. Being ruled by the Moon, pearl is supremely yin in nature, and has a cooling and tonifying effect on the skin, providing an luminous glow, unrivaled, aside from Luna herself! The results are clear, even after the first use, and over time reduces dark spots, red spots, blackheads, whiteheads, and soothes inflammation.
This is an eco-friendly alternative to commercial over the counter scrubs that frequently contain plastic microbeads or other undesirable chemicals, and comes in a reusable glass vial to further reduce environmental impact.
The mask can be used any time, but is especially recommended to prime the skin before applying the Whipped Honey Beautifying Mask, or really, any mask. Exfoliating reduces the appearance of aging and also exposes fresh skin cells to whatever you apply to your skin, as opposed to dead surface cells blocking absorption. It also makes makeup look more natural by laying better on the skin’s surface, and can be used to polish away the residue at the end of the day.
Can be used as a cleanser in and of itself, or after using your normal face wash. Wet the face with warm water and pour a quarter sized amount of pearl polish on the fingertips before applying to the face and massaging in small circular motions for 1-3 minutes. It is gentle enough to be used around the eyes and to exfoliate the lips. Wash away with warm water and pat dry before applying a mask or proceeding with the rest of your normal skin care routine.
Quickview Venus in Libra, Sundry, Honeys, Bath + Beauty
This is an all natural beautifying mask for the face, which can also be applied to the neck and décolletage. I’ve been making this recipe and using it myself for many years, especially during the week leading up to conferences, my own wedding, and other events where I’d like to look my best. During Venus’ time in Libra, I’ve been doing it every Friday as a remedial Venus practice and to boost my regular skincare regimen.
This mask helps clear acne, balance moisture, combat excessive oiliness, reduce pore size, and establish an even tone. It leaves the skin feeling super soft and has a lovely scent.
Blackberry honey, whipped with vanilla bean, essential oils of Frankincense and Geranium, and other natural proprietary ingredients, all sacred to Venus. No fillers or synthetic ingredients. Created during the hour of Venus while the Moon conjoined her in Libra.
Due to the time intensive nature of creating this mask, I chose not to make it as part of the upcoming Venus series, so my focus could be on the ritual materia at that time. I also wanted to offer my clients something that didn’t have to incubate until September, to help them better connect with Venus in Libra as a transiting influence.
This beautifying mask is the the first entry in the series category “Sundry”, which will feature individual offerings outside of dedicated series, which are still created to exacting standards and in great accord with the shifting tides of space-time. August 14th (the day of creation) was a good Venus election, one that we considered for a Venus in Libra series, but we found one we preferred slightly better later in the month.
The mask coming from a vial makes it easy to pour onto your fingers to apply to the face with as little mess as possible, without having to dirty a spoon or dip into a pot and risk contamination. I use about a quarter sized amount and get 7 masks out of each vial, though this depends on if you apply to other areas.
Cleanse your skin, making sure it is completely dry before applying the honey. This mask works especially well if you have primed your skin using our Saltwater Pearl Exfoliating Polish, to maximize smoothness and get the fastest, most beautifying result.
Pour the honey onto your fingertips and apply a thin layer directly to the skin using circular and rubbing motions to spread it across the face. Spend two minutes quickly patting the honey into the skin until it becomes tacky and your hands are difficult to pull away, which will exfoliate and bring blood flow to the the skin, stimulating a healing and toning response. Wear for 10-20 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with warm water.
Do not re-wash your face. Proceed with toner or your usual skin care routine. If you have oily skin (as I do) this causes an oil purge the day you use the mask, which can be easily removed with oil absorbing sheets, or just applied before bed so it’s not a concern. With consistent application over time, excessive oiliness is reduced and the skin develops more consistent levels of hydration.
Can be applied anytime, but is especially recommended during the days and nights of Venus, and/ or in her hour. For the fastest results, use multiple days in a row, every other day, or twice per week before entering a maintenance schedule, if you so desire.
Quickview Series, Asclepius, Salts, Bath + Beauty
As detailed in the series description, ritual baths were one of the first steps taken to cleanse those who made pilgrimage to temples of Asclepius in pursuit of healing, and salt is a natural agent of purification in ways both physical and metaphysical.
Dead Sea salt, Himalayan pink salt, and epsom salt were combined with essential oils of frankincense, cypress, and tea tree, alongside herbs from the incense mixture, with Asclepius’ blessing.
Draw a bath and add the mixture to the water. Includes a prayer to Asclepius and suggested times for ritual potency. Fully immerse yourself, occasionally wetting the full head and hair for best results. Soak for 13 minutes or more.
The formula of this salt is highly concentrated with essential oil to make less go a longer way. Available in an eight ounce jar for $26, enough for 2 deeply purifying baths, or add smaller amounts to many, utilizing the principle of contagion.
