There are certain essential oils and aromatic combinations that resonate with each season of the year. Autumnal scents tend to be warm, balsamic and woodsy and spicy, while Winter creations are even deeper, earthy, mystical and resinous. Spring perfumes are sensual and floral and Summer scents boast more towards bright, sunny citrus notes. Not only are we more attracted to these scents during their complimentary seasons, but these oils are very powerful, activated and charged when paired with intention.
We’ve created a selection of Kate’s Magik perfumes; Bastet Perfumes, Sacred Perfumes and Body Perfume Oils, that are perfect for the Winter Season and its corresponding festivals of the Winter Solstice, Yule, New Years and Imbolc. Use these perfumes in your rituals and ceremonies that honor the season and symbolism. Remember, our perfumes are unisex and winter perfumes highly compliment the more masculine of our species.
The end of 2020 is a good time to work with the essence of White Tara. This is one of Kate’s personal favorites! She is a female Bodhisattva associated with Tibetan Buddhism and represents compassion, longevity and wisdom. White Tara offers teachings of patience and respect for life. She is called upon to swiftly assist anyone who requests her divine presence. Rare and precious White Lotus is the centerpiece for White Tara. Sacred Sandalwood creates the foundation, while exotic Turmeric, sunny Citrus and a touch of spice make this an exquisitely uplifting perfume.
Archangel Michael Sacred Perfume instills courage and provides protection. Archangel Michael is the great protector and guide of light and love. Notes of sacred Frankincense and courageous Ginger help shield you from the unwanted and instill the trust needed to follow your path.

Hekate is an ancient Greek goddess that serves as a guide for safe passage through the underworld. A creation worthy of our time and perfect for transitioning from 2020 - 2021.Hekate Perfume was born out of Kate’s acquired fascination for this Greek goddess, sacred warrior, guide of the underworld and master of perfumes. Her torch shines dim moonlight to help us find our way through the darkness. She holds the key to enter and exit the underworld from the earthly realm and serves as protector and guide along the journey. This mystical winter perfume opens the door to a hidden, secret world, where magik and transformation can unfold. Hekate supports the spiritual warrior within and provides protection as she helps lead you forward on your path. The blend for Hekate was created around the highly mystical Indian Spikenard oil, which was commonly used as an ointment in ancient times by priests, priestesses, queens and kings, as well as Jesus of Nazareth and Mary Magdalene, for its anchoring, calming and supernatural qualities. Joy-inducing Clementine and spicy Pimento Berry bring trust and courage to this enigmatic perfume. Inhale deeply and let the transformative aroma of Hekate usher you through the mountains, valleys, and crossroads of the upcoming winter season.
Use Ra Sacred Perfume for energy, empowerment and to bring in sun and warmth during the Winter months. Ra is the ancient Egyptian Sun God known as creator and ruler of the Heavens. He represents light, warmth, power and energy. Deep, restorative Oakmoss with a touch of Egyptian Jasmine make this a truly empowering blend.
Krishna is the Hindu God of compassion, tenderness, and love and one of the most revered among Indian divinities. He is typically depicted with a flute in his hand and portrayed with dark, or blue skin. This divine hero and enchanting lover can be a strong guide for us on our spiritual path of wisdom, devotion and discernment. Mysore Sandalwood, deep Indian Jasmine and rich, balsamy Cardamom absolute are the aromatic gems of this highly spiritual and divinely comforting Perfume worthy of a supreme God. May Krishna be our spiritual guide as we enter a new era.
Mary Magdalene - A mysterious woman who traveled by Jesus’ side. Was she a sinner or a saint? A harlot or the bride of Christ? There are many speculations on the subject of Mary Magdalene; she even has ties to the sacred Isle of Avalon where she is revered as the origin of the Arthurian bloodline. This would make her an ancestor of King Arthur and his priestess sister and aunt. For me Mary Magdalene represents the sacred within the feminine, the God-spark that lives within every person and the perfect balance to the masculine. Anoint yourself with the essence of Mary Magdalene to connect with the higher realms and evoke cosmic wisdom. Allow a medley of Roses and Magnolia to awaken your inner priestess, sacred Myrrh to anchor your prayers and Patchouli to align you with your true purpose.
In 2018, this exceptional Indian deity was introduced to me by a masterful Yoga of the Voice teacher and I instantly knew that she would be an important guide for my next musical journey. Saraswati is the goddess of poetry, music, speech, and wisdom. Her name signifies, “she who has flow.” This past January I had the privilege to study and sing in India with a living dhrupad master, at which time I found an even deeper connection with this goddess of cosmic knowledge. In this time of rapid earthly transitions, life can be stifling and uncontrollable. Often all we can do is step into the flow and trust that it will carry us to higher ground. Sacred Pink Lotus is paired with anchoring Vetiver. Moroccan Rose supports the heart while Citrus and Ginger spark the power of expression and commitment to speak the truth.
Anubis, the jackal-headed Egyptian god, is a protector of the dead and an overseer of embalming and funerals. He has been called “Lord of the Sacred Land,'' as well as “God of Deserts and Darkness.” He embodies a protective shaman or priest who guides mortals from one realm to another. Anubis also watches over and guides the souls of the dead on their journey from the physical realm to the afterlife. I created Anubis Perfume to help support us in understanding the temporary nature of our current life and to connect with those who have passed over. This magik potion will also help us travel beyond linear time. Ancient Myrrh and holy Frankincense will help instill trust in what comes after life as we know it. Together with divine Rose we will be guided to the deeper realms beyond this world.
The term Bhakti is a Sanskrit word meaning faith, love, devotion, and authentic joy. I created the original formulation for this month’s Bhakti Perfume for my partner in life and love who makes his living as a musician. Performing can be trying at times, so he asked me to create a blend of oils that would help him connect with Source, provide protection, and instill gratitude for his musical gifts. Being a musician myself, I was called to create a fusion of sacred oils of strong protective qualities that awaken divine and effortless musical flow. Bhakti’s Perfume will evoke devotion, joy, and sacred protection from outside energies that can throw us off balance. All of the essential oils in Bhakti have been used since ancient times for these purposes, making it a perfect perfume for daily protection, meditation, ritual, ceremony, song, and prayer. Bhakti is also an entrancing scent for men! The aroma of Bhakti is deep and warming, featuring rare and precious Agarwood (sourced from cultivated trees, not from wild or endangered species), enriched with sensual, balsamy Himalayan Cedarwood and a selection of other sacred tree essences.
My beloved and I were enjoying a sunset stroll through the desert discussing ideas for November’s Bastet Perfume, when suddenly he exclaimed, “What about Kamala?” At first I felt unsure because she is not a deity, but as we walked on, the formula began to download. We later discovered that Kamala means “lotus” in Sanskrit and is also an epithet of Lakshmi, the Hindu Goddess of love, beauty and abundance. Kamala Harris, the name of the Democratic Vice Presidential Elect, will be the first WOMAN in United States HIStory to sit at the head of our country. Kamala Perfume is an exotic aroma; floral, transformational and bound for glory: Golden Turmeric for powerful healing, Madagascan Vanilla for calm and support, Indian Jasmine to evoke love and balance and Cardamom for fortitude - all qualities a woman can embody as a leader. Created for immediate application. Wear for victory!
Quan Yin Sacred Perfume inspires kindness and forgiveness. Quan Yin is the Goddess of mercy, compassion and loving kindness. She is often perceived as the female Buddha.
