Sometimes it’s really hard to pick my favorite items here at Smudge. There are so many unique and special items available, and I’m always getting new items in. If you are looking for something different, or have a magickal friend on your Christmas list, Smudge is the place to go!
In the past couple of months, I’ve produced some new brand products, got new lines and products in and expanded on some other lines. Here are some of my favorite items. I’m sure you will love them too!
Bewitched Voodoo Dolls are a cute and fun way to introduce yourself to poppet magic. Poppets have their roots in folk magic, and is one of the most commonly used tools in sympathetic magic. TV gives you the stereotypical use of poppets, but they are based on the theory of “like creates like”. You can use these cute, lovable poppets to represent yourself, and to create a desired change in your life.
The most common use of poppets is to create a specific short-term effect in our lives. You would create a poppet that represents you and then through ritual,meditation and magickal intent cause the desired change in your life.
There are a number of symbolic ways to stimulate the desired effect. The most famous is by use of pins. Forget all the movies and TV shows that show sticking pins into a doll to cause pain or harm to someone else. The pin is placed in an area you wish to focus energy on, the pin gives you something to concentrate on and it may help to conduct the energy in the physical world as well. Bewitched Voodoo Dolls are a very positive and friendly introduction to poppet magick.
Andrew’s Amazing Alleged Magickal Baths. I absolutely love these magickal packets! Made by Andrew from the well known Hermit’s Lamp in Toronto Ontario. These kits have everything you need for a perfect ritual bath. Complete with a herbal tea soak, corresponding candle, and instructions on what to do. Each one is already charged with the said intent. I always add more of my own energy to personalize my intent and send out what my end goal is. While the tea is brewing, I take the time to prepare by grounding and centering, and writing down my intentions, bringing them into the physical world. Your energetic soak doesn’t get easier or more effective than this. Going like hot cakes, Andrew’s Bath’s are truly amazing!
Filthy Witch Spa Products & Aunty M’s Conjure Products. These are the products that I produce right here at Smudge. I’ve concentrated the line to focus on the basics. Life is often hectic and stressful. Adding magickal bath products to your daily routine is simple and a great way to add energy to your day, and rid yourself of the negative at night before bed. Spell soap is 100% Vegan, and contains top grade oils, fragrance, and herbs. I’ve added roller ball perfume so you can carry the vibe with you and freshen up during the day. Relax in a cleansing salt bath after a long day and let your woes go down the drain. I’ve added a few new conjure products, formulated to get the job done, and done well. Van Van is an all purpose formula that is versatile and a perfect product to use during Mercury Retrograde for those that need a little bit of support in communication, clearing energy, and luck. Dragon’s Blood adds energy and a sexy boost to your goings on. Psychic Vibes opens up your crown chakra for intuition. Guru is a delicious and popular Nag Champa scent. Whoa Nelly puts a stop to energetic chaos and puts an anchor down to stabilize your energy. Tranquility is a blend of oils and herbs to add instant peace and calm to your day. All of my Smudge brand products are spiritual tools made fun and easy to incorporate into your every day routine. A portion of my sales goes to Hiatus House to help support their important and necessary programs to help and support those who are experiencing domestic violence in their lives. This is one of my base causes I advocate and promote here at Smudge, along with personal growth, and following your own unique path. Organizations like this give people the chance to break the cycle of abuse in their family, and create a safe and bright future for their children, such as I have done in my own life.
New Jewelry. Every week I add more and more products to my shelves! Lately it’s been a lot of unique jewelry. I absolutely love the new selection of essential oil lockets I have in. This week I added two more, and they are selling out as I put them on the shelf! Aromatherapy jewelry is perfect for people that are skin sensitive to fragrance, or want to benefit from the healing holistic effects of essential oils, and be fashionable at the same time. Each locket comes with replaceable pads so you can switch up your aroma each day. Some of the health benefits of aromatherapy include its ability to reduce anxiety, ease depression, boost energy levels, speed up the healing process, eliminate headaches, boost cognitive performance, induce sleep, strengthen the immune system, reduce pain, improve digestion, and increase circulation. Aromatherapy is an ancient healing method. Other new pieces include infinity pentagram necklaces, locally crafted Crystal Jewelry, and new healing and protective amulets.
There is always something for every one here at Smudge, and if you ever have any suggestions or any products you would like me to get in, let me know! I am always looking for ways to meet the communities needs, and to make their experience here a positive and memorable one!
