This oil was created to honor Erzulie Dantor. Erzulie Dantor is a Petro Lwa and a fierce protector of women and children. She is best known for blessings concerning motherhood, the gay community, strength, vengeance, single women, and artists. She is often syncretized with Santa Barbara Africana, Our Lady of Czestochowa, and Our Lady of Perpetual Help.
In creating this blend, we wanted to create a fusion of Dantor's favorite perfumes: the old Rêve d'Or (a French perfume that became popular in the late 1800's), Bay Rum, and Florida water. This blend begins with a vintage-inspired aldehydic base augmented by two kinds of bay rum and reveals bursts of orange, lemon, and vetiver essential oils on the dry down before settling into a very vintage-inspired scent reminiscent of perfumes of the 1920s.
FLORAL/ FRUITY/ VINTAGE-INSPIRED
Our ritual oils are a special line of perfume oils created to honor specific saints, deities, and goddesses. Each oil is created intuitively and references the qualities, affinities, and energy associated with the subject. The compositions are the same as our perfume oils so that they may be worn as perfumes by anyone who might also enjoy the unique fragrance profiles of these blends.
Ritual oils are created to help transform the everyday into the divine and magical. They can be used to anoint crystals, statues, altar tools, talismans, offerings, and candles. The aroma of each ritual oil is reverently and intuitively crafted to honor the subject that it was created for. These are complex and beautifully unusual blends which may be worn on the body as perfume in addition to their ritual uses.
Our ritual oils are presented in 5ml amber glass apothecary bottles with dropper caps and arrive beautifully gift boxed.
