The Sword & the Eastern Sky Hair & Perfume Oil - NEW!
The scent of clarity, focus, & a powerful new day: olive blossom, frankincense, dry tea leaves, & an airy lavender & amber chypre
Birds flying high you know how I feel
Sun in the sky you know how I feel
Breeze driftin' on by you know how I feel
It's a new dawn
It's a new day
It's a new life For me
And I'm feeling good
- Nina Simone, Feeling Good
2020 was a disaster on so many levels, but for me, it was also a year of self reckoning & discovery, of facing hard truths & deciding what I was going to do about them. It was the year that I felt my roots in the earth, took up my sword, & turned my face to the rising sun. It was the year I let myself feel my own magic, & this scent is the embodiment of that energy, airy & mutable, silvery, solitary, self-aware, & ready for anything.
Sparkling frankincense & apricot-tinged olive blossom dawn over cool dry black tea leaves, the morning air crisp and clear with lavender buds, white amber, tufts of moss & cardamom, & a breath of deep cypress. Sword & Sky is fleet & unencumbered, calming & brightening, a firmly planted foot & a an arrow leaping to the sky. Wear it for a clear view to the horizon & a gleaming blade in your hand & the promise of new roads to come.
It's only taken me ten years, but your PBSW dreams have come true: a whisper-light, -cone-free hair oil formula meets luxuriously lush perfume oil for a full-body PBSW experience! Daikon radish extract is an amazing alternative to traditional silicones, providing silky shine & skin-feel without build-up or environmental concerns, Meadowfoam seed oil provides excellent scent retention plus a massive dose of antioxidants, meaning your PBSW scents will stick around both in the bottle & on your skin. Argan & jojoba oils team up to treat your hair, your scalp, & your skin with gentle moisture, & a tiny drizzle of isopropyl myristate keeps things from getting greasy. Your favorite PBSW blends, made from quality, vetted, phthalate-free synthetic fragrance oils & essential oils, are added at a percentage that gives delicious throw without the risk of dermal irritation or gassing your coworkers out of the elevator.
The end result? A light-as-air powerhouse oil blend that delivers your favorite PBSW scents without dripping, smudging or spilling, in a sleek bottle that's ready for your bag or pocket but pretty enough to display!
To use as a hair oil, roll lightly into the palm of your hand, then apply with your hands or fingers as desired. For best results, concentrate on the ends of your hair, rather than the scalp.
To use as a perfume oil, apply directly to pulse points, taking care to avoid irritated, broken, or inflamed skin. I always recommend testing a small amount on the inside of your elbow before committing to a full slathering. Discontinue use if irritation occurs; please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

Same PBSW hair oil formula I know and love. This oil is perfection for my fine, slightly oily hair - brings the ends back to life without weighing it down like 'cones can.
But, y'all - this SCENT. Refreshing and airy without being "clean" (clean is boring yo) it's very evocative of dawn and peace and new beginnings. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeousness.
