As the weather bends from summer to fall we enter a fascinating time in Celtic history called Samhain. Samhain had its beginnings in an ancient Celtic festival of the dead. The date marked both an ending and a beginning in an eternal cycle.
With this new cycle, we welcome a new moon - Ivy Moon. The full moon closest to Samhain, Halloween and the Day Of The Dead.
The Ivy Moon appears during autumn and the harvest. symbolizing the time for shedding what no longer serves you, and building up provisions and healthy habits for the long winter ahead.
Ivy Moon is the perfect balance of dark and light, masculine and feminine, body and spirit.
The bright Citrus top notes sparkle brightly against the cool and tranquil White Tea, and transition peacefully into the deep and oh so sexy Sandalwood and Amber base notes...similar to the way a sultry summer day melts into the arms of a crisp fall evening.
Each bottle of Ivy Moon Perfume houses a powerful crystal for an extra dose of magic: Green Aventurine is known as the "Stone of Opportunity", thought to be the luckiest of all crystals, especially in manifesting prosperity!
Each bottle of 13 Moons Perfume is hand poured into a 1/2 ounce roll-on glass bottle with a gold cap.
Perfect for your purse, your boudoir or your altar.
At Olivine we are all about CLEAN BEAUTY. Our perfumes are phthalate free, paraben free, vegan and cruelty free.
Note: Samples are available on this listing in the dropdown below, and they do not include the crystals!
INTRODUCING: 13 MOONS PERFUME
At Olivine we believe in marrying our physical and metaphysical powers...Our feminine power, and sexuality.
The contemporary witch is our enlightened, rebellious role model.
The number 13 has always been associated with the Goddess and the Divine Feminine.
(It was also my Grandma’s lucky number, and became mine as well when I was a child!)
We embrace our inner mystic--looking to the 13 moons for guidance on our journey.
The 13 moons collection bestows upon you the power of each moon.
For centuries human cultures have given names to the full moon throughout the year. It was common to name the moons based on the behaviors of the plants, animals, crops, weather or season. Many ancient cultures used moon phases and cycles to keep track of the seasons and gave a unique name to each recurring full moon and the mysterious effect it brought.
The Modern Day Witch uses the phases of the moon to enhance her own personal brand of magic. For some it is as simple as putting a crystal on a windowsill under a full moon to cleanse and charge the stone. For others it is a more elaborate dance between the different faces of the moon.
There is no right, wrong or perfect way to celebrate the moon.
This bottle of perfume is a sacred object.
I would love to suggest a beautiful ritual to use before using your perfume for the very first time…
Spend a moment thinking about an intention that you would like to infuse your perfume with. It could be love, grace, abundance, getting your perfect home, job, love, etc. (Side note...NEVER include another person in this intention, this is all about you and no one else. Promise?)
Hold your perfume bottle between your hands and close your eyes. In your minds eye see the bottle filling up with a pale pink light and see your intention in this pink light. See it, feel it, be in that feeling for a full minute. Now put on your perfume and inhale the scent.
EVERY TIME you put on this perfume I want you to feel into that intention.
You are free to reset the intention on your bottle whenever you like, but it will hold your intention until the bottle is finished.
NOTE: Your 13 Moons Perfume is meant to be used all year round and whenever you feel drawn to the scent or your intention with the scent. It carries the energy of the Mermaid Moon, and her energy will be just as delicious every day of the year!
