Ok... the website is restocked, I'm almost ready for my market next weekend, and I'm home alone, so I think it's finally time to talk about the Goddess Demeter and the hair perfume/ritual mist I made two weeks ago in the spirit of gratitude and Thanksgiving, yet never got the chance to post because of life being busy busy prepping for my last market. ğŸŽƒ

.

Demeter was was a Greek Goddess known as the Earth Mother. She was the goddess of harvest, fertility, abundance, and the bringer of the seasons, ... she went around and made things grow! She is often depicted holding wheat or corn-which is a symbol of life and fertility.

.

Demeter has a daughter-Persephone. Together they would happily roam the earth and bring things into bloom. One day Hades (god of the underworld) kidnapped Persephone,raped her and tricked her into being his captive wife. (This represents the beginning of the Patriarchy we see running rampantly today.)

.

Demeter was furious.. and would not let a man exert his power over her and her daughter. She brought famine to all the land (Winter) until Zeus finally approached her to make a compromise saying that he would give back her daughter for half of the year (Spring, Summer) if Demeter brought back fertility and prosperity to he Earth. (Phew!)

.

I've always felt so connected to my name. I was born on a grain farm.. surrounded by corn and wheat fields. I spent so much of my childhood walking through corn fields, playing in the wheat fields, in all seasons... watching them grow, thrive, and withdraw for the Winter. The field in the picture is the one I walked through the most.. just in front my childhood home which I visited at Thanksgiving. I've always felt a deep connection to the land and therefor to my name and its meaning (it comes from Demeter). And in the land I sense a warmth. A tender loving presence.

.

This mist was made to celebrate the abundance of the natural world. There are gifts and abundance all around us. We must open our hearts to truly see. This is a Ritual Mist for prosperity, abundance, fertility and Gratitude. Giving thanks for all that is.

.

Oils of vetiver, amber, and patchouli resonate with and smell of the ancient earth. Rich musky soil after the rain...

.

Sweetgrass is known as Mother Earth's hair (perfect for an earth mother hair perfume). It is a sacred grass that smells sweet of vanilla and spices and brings a gentle and purifying love to the heart space.

.

Geranium, and Henna Blossom both have a fruity and floral aroma. They bring joy and fertility.

.

Clary Sage and Vitex (chasteberry) help to balance female hormone and promote fertility.

.

Cinnamon, Myrtle, Clary Sage, Black Pepper, Patchouli, and Bergamot attract wealth and prosperity... but also to have a giving and generous spirit as that goes hand in hand with TRUE abundance. They also help to empower the spirit... to stand strong in personal power. To not be manipulated or taken advantage of.

.

Lavender is calming and soothing.. the mother of all essential oils. She helps the oils mix together in harmony. She nurtures the heart space and brings about feelings of deep inner peace and gratitude.

.

Overall, this blend is grounding, harmonizing, earthy, spicy and sensual. This is Demeter.
