Enjoy a little taste of adventure with Claudia’s travel notes about each essence:
Blue Lake ~ “Merriment”
Sacred to the Maori located in Rotorua, the center of the North Island's largest geothermal activity. Blue Lake has a sister lake called Green Lake. I couldn’t stop smiling when I was here. Watching the sheer bliss that exuded from families playing and swimming and dogs frolicking. Take this essence to return to a place of child-like wonder and amazement. Bring merriment and joy into your life.
Emerald Lake ~ “Eagle’s Blessing”
Three sacred lakes in the volcanic area of Tongariro Alpine Crossing, North Island. After a long hike along this volcanic floor we arrived at a breath-taking view of the three Emerald Lakes. I collected water from the one that drew me to it and felt truly blessed; as though my soul had been graced by an immense feminine power of deep knowing and truth.
Fox Glacier ~ “Timelessness”
Glacial ice was collected from this river on the South Island. Connect to All That Is and move outside space and time. Attune to the wisdom of the Old Ones.
Milking the Cave ~ “Forgiveness“
Drops were “milked” from several stalactites in caverns located in Punakaiki, South Island. Allows you to go within to the womb of the Mother and feel a sense of total self-acceptance and love. Sitting silently in the dark, I felt a deep sense of peace and overwhelming love in the void.
"Pupu" Springs ~ “Cleansing”
Te Waikoropupu Springs is sacred to the Maori. The legends of this spring are told in the stories of Huriawa, its guardian spirit. The Springs provide water for healing, and in the past were a place of ceremonial blessings at times of birth and death and the leaving and returning of travellers. Unclogs your spiritual pipes, and the Goddess of the Springs works fast!
New Zealand Sacred Waters ~ “The Great River”
A Spray formula made with a combination of all 5 New Zealand essences and a refreshing blend of essential oils. Anduin is the river in Middle Earth that all other rivers flow into, it is also known as The Great River. Feel the power of the River of Life within you. Feel connected to Source.

Our current Featured Essence is Vision Quest, one of our essence sets we call *Powerful Pairings; two individual formulas created to work especially well as a duo of energies to compliment and synergize the benefits of one another. Powerful Pairings are two bottles sold together.
Vision Quest (Keywords = Cosmic Exploration)
Vision Quest is a Powerful Pairing of; Cosmic Antlers, and Stone Shields Spray, to be used together when embarking on spiritual undertakings. Crafted specially as Sister Essences for connection and protection, when used with one another each of the formulas in this set synergizes and amplifies the power of her Sister Essence.
Use Vision Quest for solitary work or with a circle of like-minded spirits and allies, to support and enhance journey work, initiation ceremonies, and when seeking guidance from other realms. Begin with Stone Shields Spray to create an energetic cauldron of safety, then within the protection of this container, take a few drops of Cosmic Antlers under the tongue or anoint the third eye to enhance visioning and launch inner questing.
We dedicate this offering to pragmatic mystics, spiritual warriors, wise fools, heroines, heros, explorers, seekers, dreamers, and brave souls everywhere who are setting out on a journey.
"Sanctified by their initiatory experiences and furnished with their spirit guardians, the shaman alone among human beings is able to consciously travel into the spiritual worlds as cosmic explorers." ~ Hank Wesselman
Cosmic Antlers (Keywords = Cosmic Awareness)
|"Symbiosis" by Nadia Turner|
(Available only in Dropper form and sold exclusively with Stone Shields Spray as part of the Vision Quest Powerful Pairing set.)

On a quiet autumn morning, as a heavy rain fell and thick mists arose among the redwood trees, rainwater was collected, then carefully carried in a silent ritual through a labyrinth to infuse the water with the peaceful vibrations of that unique moment. A profound stillness was experienced during the infusion ritual. Use of this essence will instantly transport you to a place of deep peace.
Invoke the experience of a moving meditation; step across the threshold of a labyrinth leaving ordinary consciousness, transcending space and time. Enter an etheric temple that opens your awareness to wisdom and surrounds you with grace. Allow your mind and body to flow through the ancient shapes of transformation. Turns and pathways take you deeper into sacred silence and inner stillness. Gently follow the spiral toward the center, the heart of your self, the place where true power lies, the place inside that is waiting for your listening and attention. When you are ready, return from this place feeling grounded, clear and connected.
Available in a dropper or spray, Within the Labyrinth is a great formula for enhancing meditations or when you wish to shift your energy to a quiet state of reflection. Anoint the soles of your feet to help find your footing and bring confidence to your steps. Anoint your heart chakra for spiritual alignment and to connect to your inner guidance. The spray may be used to transform any room into a sacred temple where one may meditate, or do ritual. An excellent pairing with our Stone Shields Spray, providing added protection and holding of sacred space.
We've posted a few resources for more on Labyrinths on our new Resources page.

The Triple Goddess is the three-fold aspect of the Goddess as Maiden, Mother, and Crone. Triple Goddess essence is perfect for use in moon rituals, bathing rituals, and to invoke the Goddess for strength in Sisterhood. For honoring the solidarity of the Sacred Feminine within self, family or community. A great ally for help in “letting go” and clearing anything that no longer serves.
The inspiration for crafting this essence literally sprang forth from the dream-time. It is an alchemical brew of multiple full moon infusions made by us under various full moons. Each unique full moon planetary essence was made in different locations spanning from the southwestern desert to the Polynesian islands over a period of several years time. The resulting brew was then energized in sacred space under a powerful Full Moon in Gemini. Gifts of flowers, gems, and hand blended essential oils from our circle of sisters were key ingredients blessing this formula.
Triple Goddess is available in both dropper and spray formulas. The spray is imbued with a special blend of essential oils created as an offering to Venus: jasmine absolute, frankincense, ylang ylang, and orange.
The Nine Sisters (Nine fold aspect of the Goddess as Maidens, Mothers, Crones):
“I am The cycle of birth, life, death and rebirth. I am One. I am many. I am within you."
“I am the Maiden, called by some Brigit, Diana, Kore
I am the waxing moon, the bright flower of beginnings and adventures into the self and the world.
I am One Unto Myself … I am within you.“
“I am the Mother, called by some Danu, Demeter, Frigga
I am the full moon, the fecundity of ideas and motion, life giving birth to itself.
I am Myself in Connection … I am within you.“
“I am the Crone, called by some The Cailiach, Hekate, Hella
I am the waning moon, the secrets of silence and darkness, of the journey not yet taken.
I am All Within Myself … I am within you. “
~ Meeting the Nine Sisters Ritual written by Catherine Pennington, presented at PantheaCon 2003, 2004

Fox River CavernClaudia calls this one "milking the cave", as the water was collected from several stalactites in Punakaiki, South Island.
Glacial ice was collected from this river on South Island.

~ Stargazer Lily Blessing
Our Featured Essence for the Merry Month of May is the radiant Stargazer Lily. Her vibration helps us to embrace joy with wild abandon and celebrate our divinity as star beings. When we stand fully present in the moment, our inner starlight shines like a sparkling jewel. This essence is a dose of spiritual nutrition and sweetness.
Stargazer Lily was made throughout Beltane Eve until sunrise on the first of May in 2010. The plant from which the essence was made lives in a private garden high upon a hill overlooking San Francisco and was a gift from Claudia’s mother, an avid gardener, years ago. Stargazer lily bloomed on the first of May heralding well-wishes for Mother’s Day. With permission given from the spirit of the plant, two radiant magenta blooms were placed in a bowl of spring water where the essence was infused by the elements in its garden home. Earth blessings in the form of a despacho and song were offered to the Faery beings and elemental kingdoms expressing great gratitude for Springtime’s sweet abundance.
The Stargazer flower lives in a divine state and reflects back our own divinity and light echoing the Divine Mother’s love of all her children. Stargazer’s wisdom teaches us to listen with an open heart so that we may perceive the subtle beauty and perfection around us.
Use when you want to boost your inner light and ignite your soul fire. A strong ally in creative expressions; singing, dancing, and music-making. Stargazer will guide your ability to listen to others with an open heart, tune in and hear the messages that are often beyond words.
Stargazer Lily is available in both dropper and spray, and would make a great gift for moms or special women in your life. The external spray contains a light and airy aroma that evokes feelings of openess and freedom with a blend of organic essential oils including Artemisia, Clary Sage, Niaouli, Black Spruce, and Benzoin Absolute.
Month of May special: enjoy Stargazer Lilly 1 oz dropper for $10 and 2 oz spray for $15. If you live in San Francisco, pick up a bottle at Purple Iris Healing Center 1404 Church Street at 26th Street.

Like two lovers, these yin and yang essences join together in an alchemical sacred union.

Together, this pair of essences harmonizes the Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine within self or in a relationship. Can be used to anoint yourself or a loved one with beauty, adoration and grace and ground your union into manifest form. Let your creativity flow!
To read more about the individual essences please see each one highlighted in our past Featured Essences.
Divine Union is available as a pair of two 1 oz. dropper/internal bottles $24, or two 2 oz. sprays bottles $30 (a savings from buying the essences individually).

“I gave the gift of the Divine Union essence set to my friend and she LOVED them. She sprayed them and was impressed at the quality and said she could tell they were made by someone who had energy in her hands :) And commented that the scent stays in the air a long time, it doesn’t just dissapate.” ~ C.H., Psychotherapist
"Empress Moon is a favorite. If I am feeling a little low during my monthly cycle, I spray Empress Moon all over and it feels like I have just received a cool, gentle embrace lifting me up and comforting me." ~ R.A., Attorney
"I LOVE Solis Manifestation. I use it when I wake up in the morning. It has a beautiful scent and I like how it sets the tone for how I want to move forward into my day...with a sense of creativity and openess to abundance. Speaking of abundance, I sprayed Solis around my artwork and display at an art faire I exhibited in and sold 6 paintings that weekend. How's that for manifesting!" ~ R.S., Artist
