Waking the Witch Hair & Perfume Oil - Sticky Resins, Smoke, Dried Apple, Blackened Flowers...
Waking the Witch Hair & Perfume Oil - NEW!
Smoldering, sticky resins, wrinkled apples drying over the fire, tea leaves & bitter berries packed in oil, & sacred jasmine & frangipani blossoms to scatter in the flames
Waking the Witch is a blend for the night of the soul, shapeshifting from dark sticky incense to jammy fruit & dry tea, through a cloud of heady florals & back to warm coals & woodsmoke. It's the smell of gathering revelations, of plans revealed, of lines crossed & power embraced. It's deep & wild & not here to please anyone but the stars as they whirl overhead.
We have been quiet & patient & good for a very long time. Enough of that. This blend is for all of us as we dig deep & find our voices & howl into the darkness & scrape at the sky.
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.
This listing is for one (1) .3 ounce glass roller bottle of hand made hair & perfume oil, blended by hand in small batches, with oil resistant labels, & shrink wrapped for your safety.
As always, all ingredients are clearly labeled for your peace of mind:
Raphanus Sativus (Radish) Seed Extract, Limnanthes Alba (Meadowfoam) Seed Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Fragrance Oil, Argania Spinosa (Argan) Kernel Oil, Isopropyl Myristate, Tocopherol
Keep away from direct sunlight & extreme temperatures, & use within three years of purchase.

My sibling's all-time favorite scent! I purchased it for myself but didn't find the scent fit me as well as The Queen is Dead. I passed it on to my sibling who adores it, and they made it through three quarters of the bottle before losing it at the gym. They were so heartbroken to have lost it that I ended up buying them a replacement. Really beautiful wine-y apple, tea and incense. It smells great on them.

This has been one of my favorite scents from Paintbox for awhile in bath streusels and soap, and I have wanted a perfume oil, and I'm very happy with it now that I have it! I love dark, smoky scents like this, and it goes so well with the apple. It's wonderful.

Fragrance oils!!!!! Y E S. The fragrances of these are slightly different to in the soaps (in a GOOD way), because they are more concentrated and "pure", in a way. Very yum (don't eat the soap). This fragrance is a new one for me, and it is absolutely delicious, very sweet and lovely, and very esoteric.

What an intoxicating scent! I love the blend of apple, tea, florals, and incense. Warm and smoky, with the perfect amount of sweetness. A beautiful witchy scent!
