Violet is a sacred flower, revered by the Faerie Queen herself!  Picking the first violets of Spring assures watchfulness and assistance in your life from the Faerie Realm.  Blue Vervain is also sacred to faeries and using it in your bathwater is said to induce dreams of, and map guidance to Faerie Land!

Fairies are partial to anything sweet and seductive, and jasmine and orange blossom are a perfect marriage of tangy intoxicating nectars!  The heady aroma in my own backyard of these two flowers convinced me I simply must blend them into soap for nothing is quite so seductive to faeries as a full moon night with jasmine and orange blossom wafting on the air!  This luscious soap is sprinkled with real jasmine and orange blossoms.

Roses are another most sacred flower among the fae, inducing love, and helping you attune to the gifts of telepathy and divination.  Lavender is well-known for it's healing and magical properties believed to be caused by the strong faerie activity surrounding it where it grows; lavender's gifts of protection from evil are strong!  Faeries are drawn to honeysuckle by it's power to stimulate dreams and awaken psychic energy.  Together these potent flower petals, scents, and their magical properties make a powerful attractant to faeries!  Use prior to approaching them, ESPECIALLY during "tween times"...dawn, dusk, noon, midnight, and equinoxes & solstices; times which are not distinct or definable, they are in-between.

Faeries are known for having quite a sweet tooth!  They also have their own secret code for rituals, celebrations and making new acquaintances.  For example...as much as they love a beautiful and fragrant garden to play in, they find it wisest not to enter the garden inhabited by humans, unless invited, awaiting a show of kindness as proof that you mean them no harm.  The surest way to display a warm and open invitation to your garden fairies and perhaps capture a glimpse, is to set out for them an offering of sweets, their favorite being milk, honey and anything vanilla!  They prefer tiny cups and saucers spread on a linen cloth, and a sprig of thyme is sure to show them you are "friend", in-tune with the ways of the fae.  Smelling sweetly of milk, honey and vanilla yourself surely cannot hurt either and if truly blessed, you may be lucky enough to have one alight upon you!   We highly recommend using this soap just before gloaming (dusk) when garden dew is gathering, and when the veil betwixt two worlds is thinnest so your chances of sighting faeries greatest!  This scent blend will induce the sweetest of dreams for your wee ones as well, as they sail off to the Land of Nod.  Enriched with honey, goatmilk, and ground oats to soothe itchy-prone skin. (Naturally brown in color from the vanilla oil.)

Ingredients: Saponified palm kernel, coconut, olive and castor oils, superfat-enriched with goatmilk, scented with essential oils & fragrance, honey, ground & whole oats.

Plain (no label) Soap - $7.50
Parchment Label Soap - $8.00

The hawthorn tree is one of three magic trees faeries notoriously group to, (the others are the mighty oak and ash trees) and a grouping of all three trees is sure to attract a major Faerie-Fest!  This soap contains hawthorn leaf and flowers, soothing feverfew herb (for red or itchy skin), and daisy petals - one of faeries' FAVORITE flowers!  Did you know that if you wear a daisy chain of flowers around your head, it protects you from tricksy faeries?  And a bath in daisy flower water is said to supply the same protection, as well as lure non-tricksy fae...they CAN'T resist!  UNSCENTED!  Just the pure natural scent of soap & herbs.

An excellent soap for babies who should not be exposed to fragrance or essential oils prior to 12 months of age....or those with any scent sensitivities.

Ingredients: Saponified palm kernel, coconut, olive and castor oils, superfat-enriched with avocado oil, ground hawthorn leaf & flowers, ground feverfew herb, daisy and calendula petals. UNSCENTED.

A FAERIE SPELL

Small garden faeries, brownies and gnomes,

Come circle 'round and protect my home.
A token of friendship I now leave in this place
May you always guard and defend this sacred place.

Be aware...there are good faeries full of love and light who only seek to help and inspire you.... and then there are bad faeries who are tricksy and find no greater pleasure than teasing and tormenting humans, purely for sport!  The following are clues that you are in the vicinity of faeries or where they frequently inhabit!

 

Sudden or unexplained rustling or trembling of leaves.

Unexplained goose bumps or shivers when alone out in nature.

You experience uncontrolled laughter or extreme silliness.

You experience unexplained loss of time or memory.

Butterflies alight upon you.

Dust devils or whirlwinds that suddenly blow up out of nowhere.

Rippling bath or outdoor water with no apparent cause.

Grass blades bending or twigs snapping with no apparent cause.

The feeling of spiders walking upon you with no spiders present.

Flickers of light around your garden or home.

A quick movement or flash of light out of the corner of your eye that cannot be explained.

A strong fragrance hits you and no one is near.

Inexplicable disappearances and reappearances of things in your home.

A feeling of being watched in your attic, basement or other dark place.

Dreams that always involve the outdoors. (This can be faeries calling you to your memory of last having, or almost having an encounter with them.)

Animals attracted to you as you sit quietly or hum. (Faeries sometimes take the form of animals to get close to see and inspect you, assess whether you are safe or not.)

Music or faint singing from sources that cannot be identified.

When out in nature, do you feel the trees and plants are "watching" you?

Do you feel coming changes in the weather before signs of them arrive?

 

Dawn, Dusk (Gloaming), Noon, Midnight, Equinoxes & Solstices.

(Seek out "tween" places)

 

Glades in the woods or forest.

Where beaches and the sea meet.

Tidal pools.
Where garden meets non-garden.

Where streams divide.

Intersections of roads.

Thresholds.

Bends in the road.

Islands.

Hedge borders and at fences.
Stairwells, hallways, landings.
Near a faerie ring of mushrooms that spring up overnight in a circle.

 

 

Between my mom’s and my own gardens, we have baskets and baskets of rose petals collected from the summer’s bounty, and as a customer, you’ve noticed we always sprinkle the bottom of your carefully prepared and handwrapped package with rose petals—a sweet reminder of our earth connections, a wee piece of my faerie garden to you! (Hopefully I don’t trap any faeries in there as well! But if I do, please turn loose in your own garden!) :)
