FATM Scented Balms
Details: Let’s discuss the difference between a ‘scent’ and a ‘fragrance’. A scent is like what animals pick up from each other, it’s earthy, it’s innate like the handwriting and laugh you were born with. ‘fragrance’ is what the lady next to you on the plane is wearing that make your peanuts taste like air freshener.
Scents made from plants- their essential oils to be exact- is from their very being, and is in some way, alive. You can think of these little scented balms as scent collaborators- dancing away with your scent! Plant, meet animal- animal, meet plant!
Let’s talk energetics- since scent isn’t just smell- it’s vibes+smell.
Artemis at Dawn evokes...running barefoot, flanked by your pack- taking a bite out of a rose. Peppery, earthy, rosey. Yum. Patchouli, but not your hippy uncles kind Rose Geranium, the aroma of rose with vegetal notes, a fave of Slovenian grandbabas Black Pepper, warming and circulating to add a bit of base to this drop.
Arrowroot Powder (Maranta arundinacea)*, Kaolin Clay, Silica, Essential Oils of Patchouli (Pogostemon cablin)*, Black Pepper (Piper nigrum)* & Rose Geranium (Pelargonium graveolens)*
Green Man evokes… inner re-visioning, campfire singin’, and dew drop lickin’. Green, grassy, woody. Made for the full spectrum of genders, Green Man is a holy dance of Clary Sage and Vetiver. Fat, from plants or animals, has long been the medium of choice to fix and hold the most elusive scents. Scented Balms keep the scent close, intimate, and infused into your skin’s own lipid layers.
Sunflower Oil (Helianthus annuus)*, Beeswax (Cera alba), Essential Oils of Vetiver (Chrysopogon zizanioides)* & Clary Sage (Salvia sclarea)*
Persephone Emerges evokes... bee legs heavy with pollen, ecstasy of bare skin exposed to the first warm spring day, and pollinating a tulip with your tongue. Wafts of fresh cut cedar behind heavy gates laden with blooming jasmine, slicing into a grapefruit while crushing a coriander seed between your back teeth. Gender inclusive scent, made for all bodies, minds, and hearts.

The Wolf Shepherd is a Spirit of the edge. He is the wounded healer of the Slovenian forest and field. The limping Wolf Shepherd summons the wolves to roam in the winter and dismisses them from the pastures in the spring. He maintains the tension and balance of the wild and tame. The Wolf Shepherd is ancient. He is an aspect we have forgotten when we believe Nature is a distant place outside of ourselves. We evoke him to remember the deep and ancient parts of our own hearts. Wolf Shepherd evokes.. prayers sent to the Sun God, apothecary drawers, and ancestral visitations.
Sunflower Oil (Helianthus annuus)*, Beeswax (Cera alba), Essential Oils of Celery Seed (Apium graveolens)*, Frankincense (Boswellia)*, Vetiver (Chrysopogon zizanioides)* & Patchouli (Pogostemon cablin)*
