“Candy and flowers, dear," Ellen had said time and again, "and perhaps a book of poetry or an album or a small bottle of Florida Water are the only things a lady may accept from a gentleman.”
―Margaret Mitchell, Gone with the Wind
Our old-timey Classics 2.0 products draw inspiration from centuries-old recipes and amps them up in surprising new ways…
Florida Water was originally a commercially produced recipe from the 1800’s that blended floral and spice notes. “Florida Water” refers to the Fountain of Youth. Spiritually, Florida Water is used extensively in many traditions including Hoodoo, Voodoo, Santeria, and Wicca, for many uses including blessing, cleansing and purification, unblocking, good luck, and protection. Our version of this classic is amazing! Mother Maggie’s Florida H2O includes Bergamot, Cassia, Clove, Jasmine, Lavender, Lemon, Musk, Petitgrain, and Rose essential, essential blend, and fragrance oils.
Bay Rum is another commercially produced recipe from the 1800’s originating from several West Indies countries. During U.S. Prohibition, a grain alcohol and aspirin version became very popular as a legal though toxic alcohol alternative. More than just a historically popular cologne for sailors and gentlemen alike, spiritually it is used for gambling and good luck, cleansing, uncrossing, and spirit work. Our version of this classic is a spicy, sexy, non-rum take on a classic. Mother Maggie’s Bay Rum includes Allspice, Bay, Black Pepper, Cassia, Clove, Red Ginger, Grapefruit, Lime, and Rosemary essential and fragrance oils.
Mother Maggie’s Classics 2.0 anointing oils are blended with sweet almond oil, essential and fragrance oils, and Vitamin E. All formulas are prayed over during creation. Our oils are 15% concentration. This is Eau de Parfum strength.
We use pure essential oils when possible. Our essential blend oils are pure essential oils combined to approximate specific essential oils that are either unavailable because of a shortage in nature or because the essential oil itself is too costly. Our fragrance oils are blends of both essential and synthetic oils for scents that are not available in nature or plants and woods that are unable to produce an actual essential oil, or for essential oils that are too costly.
Our anointing oils are available in both ½ and 2 oz glass dropper bottles—and are available without labels for privacy by request. ½ fl oz $12; 2 fl oz $40
While Mother Maggie’s anointing oils are blended to be skin safe, and because specific essential oil allergies are possible, always skin test before use.
