The Sword & the Eastern Sky Slip Organic Hand and Body Lotion
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.
Slip is a satiny hand & body lotion that absorbs quickly, leaving your skin soft & delightfully scented.

I searched long & hard for a lotion formula that would moisturize without leaving a greasy, messy film. Slip is light-weight enough to apply on the go, but it hydrates & softens for hours.
