luna65 Posted July 16, 2009 Share Posted July 16, 2009 Evil in Carnation This is actually a very cool "Appalachian Granny Magick" recipe for sex, power and aggression. It is known as a "shifting" spell, for opening you up to what is awaiting inside you. Be your own evil twin! Crafted of Carnations, Anise, Cinnamon, Tobacco and Black Spice. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Magickal Meanings of Ingredients: CARNATION ~ Power, energy, protection, fascination, admiration. ANISE ~ Sexual potency, cleansing, wards away nightmares, protective, purification, happiness, youth, psychic powers, luck, calming, soothing, meditation. CINNAMON ~ Male sexual stimulation, passion, lust, healing, protection, energy, creativity, psychic powers. TOBACCO ~ Healing, purification, spiritualism. BLACK SPICES ~ Protection, fidelity, dispels envy and evil, exorcism, hex-breaking, luck, health, prosperity, money. NOTE: Although well diluted, this potion contains cinnamon essential oil which can be irritating to the skin. Do not use in the vicinity of the eye or other mucous membranes. Discontinue use if sensitivity occurs. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ As we know from the description for this scent, it contains some serious ju-ju...and just in case you forget that, the fragrance will remind you immediately. But of course this is the kind of thing I really love: dark and powerful and wicked (in other words, my Taurus aspect insisting I live out my secret fantasies of domination). This is the scent of the fiery chalice: the one who will brook no refusal, the one who is whipping her mount to victory. But to me it's got a heavy animus vibe; there is nothing soft about it. The carnation intensifies the spicy/peppery aspects of the other notes. I amped the cinnamon for quite some time before it receded into the background, which is the only part of the experience I'm not pleased about. In the vial there's actually a sweeter character, but I'm not sure what that top note is, exactly. Maybe the carnation before the cinnamon kicks in.What's interesting to me is whenever I've needed to access my inner bitch-on-wheels, Dominance is the obvious choice, and the variants are fragrances which smooth the edges, as it were, to allow me to command with a touch of sympathetic grace. But this, this is dangerous, y'all (it's magick, after all)...if you want to be bad you'd better decide beforehand who you're going to unleash it on, because otherwise it's going to whisper in your ear that you can have your cake, eat it too, and go find another cake for later. Or, in other news, whomever bars the door is going to be a doormat so be sure to wear the pointy heels. PS: if you want to keep the balance of power in your favor, don't let them near it. Because a man, for example, could wear this very well...and they know well enough how to be wicked without the benefit of serious ju-ju. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
