This is my favorite time of year. The days shorten, the shadows grow, and the veil between our world and the Spirit World is at its thinnest. There is an extra electrical charge in the air, and the magical possibilities seem to be all around us. My Mortem perfume was created for just this time, to be your aromatic companion as you journey into the realm of the shadows during Samhain and Halloween.
The turning of the wheel toward Samhain is a turn toward darkness. The nights are growing longer, and time is catching up with us. Our trees no longer bear living fruit – all we see now are dried figs, dried grapes, things once living now dying to remind us of the stages of alchemy. There’s a quiet about death, a permanence, that scares the living shit out of all of us and yet, it’s so completely unavoidable and in that sense, beautiful and significant. As my shaman says, “We have to figure out how to die well. But if we never speak of dying, that is not possible.”
And so at Samhain we speak of it. We can play with death because it comes to us now in a state of suspended illusion. We can peek through and spread a hand across the veil of consciousness and then withdraw that hand on November 1, no harm done. Or can we? That is always the question. Does some little part of us die every Samhain, and is that ok?
That is why I named this perfume, Mortem – which is latin for “death.” To remind us that death is just a natural stage of life. We can’t have life without death any more than we can have light without dark, truth without lies, or good without evil. They are all two sides of the same coin, forever entangled and inseparable.
The deeper magic of my Mortem perfume
With seasonally appropriate notes of dragon’s blood, juniper, and lavender, this light and shadowy blend was created to honor life and death – to connect with our own mortality as we journey beyond the Veil with our departed ancestors and guides. Anoint with this blend as you acknowledge the impermanence of your physical reality and the immortality of your soul. It is infused with a hematite chip stone for added grounding and connection. And it comes printed with a special blessing on the bottle for you to read during your ceremony work.
This listing is for one (1) 15 ml bottle of Mortem perfume. Yours will arrive lovingly parceled and ready to anoint you as you journey through the veil.
