A Formal Feeling Spagyric Blend


  • Details
    After great pain, a formal feeling comes
    By Emily Dickinson

    After great pain, a formal feeling comes –
    The Nerves sit ceremonious, like Tombs –
    The stiff Heart questions ‘was it He, that bore,’
    And ‘Yesterday, or Centuries before’?

    The Feet, mechanical, go round –
    A Wooden way
    Of Ground, or Air, or Ought –
    Regardless grown,
    A Quartz contentment, like a stone –

    This is the Hour of Lead –
    Remembered, if outlived,
    As Freezing persons, recollect the Snow –
    First – Chill – then Stupor – then the letting go –

    If you were wondering where the heck the name for this blend comes from, it's from this lovely poem from patron saint of Goth teens everywhere, Emily Dickinson. It gives us a clue as to what exactly I created this formula for.

    Just as Emily reminds us, trauma and grief can literally rewire our brains, changing us in ways we can't always predict or cope with easily or healthily. But if we give ourselves time and space to process, with support from our communities and professionals (and maybe some plant magick!), we can eventually reach the letting go.

    I formulated A Formal Feeling Spagyric Blend to aid this process by supporting, healing, and tonifying the nervous system and heart, so that our bodies can "unclench" so to speak and settle down from the constant hypervigilance and high-anxiety states that can interfere with growth and healing.

    With powerful heart healers and tonics Motherwort, Hawthorn, and rose, soothing balancing nervines Milky Oats and Lavender, and Yarrow for the wounded warrior in us all, A Formal Feeling reconnects our Hearts and Minds so that we can process those Hard Feelings safely. It helps to make our bodies home again.

    Ingredients: Rose (Rosa canina) petals; Motherwort (Leonurus cardiaca) aerial parts; Hawthorne (Cretaegus monogyna) leaves, flowers, and berries; Milky Oat (Avena sativa) tops and straw; Yarrow (Achillea milefolium) leaves and flowers; Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) flowers; Vodka, Grain Alcohol, Vegetable Glycerin, Water

    What is a Spagyric?

    Spagyra are basically alchemically prepared herbal tinctures, with the readdition of the mineral salts of the plant at the end of the process and the astrological alignment present in preparation. They are significantly more potent, so start small with dosage and titrate up.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Custom and personalized orders

    Have a particular skincare concern that you don't see addressed in any of the products listed? See something you'd love if it weren't for that one ingredient that you hate/are allergic to/makes you break out? No problem! I can replace most ingredients with something different with little or no change in price in most cases. I can also give you a personal consultation if you'd like! Just shoot me a message.

    I can gift wrap anything you'd like! Just please add the Gift Wrapped listing to your cart and note whether you'd like a box or bag.

    Wholesale availability

    As I am only one being I am unable to accommodate wholesale orders at the moment. If you're interested in stocking these in your shop, please message me and we might be able to work something out.

    Returns and Exhanges

    Because these are all natural personal care items, I cannot accept returns for refund after 15 days. I will however accept returns for store credit or exchanges up to 30 days (both deadlines are for contacting me, shipping allows for about 10 days more). If you are unhappy with anything, please contact me and I will try to remedy the situation any way I can. That said, I'm a very small business so I will not be able to come through like Sephora (yet!) so bear with me

    Why are there still chemicals in my "natural" product?

    Chemicals are not inherently bad. We are made of chemicals! What you see on the ingredients list is called the INCI (International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients) and is the name of the chemical compound. I strive to use compounds derived from all natural plant sources as much as I can without sacrificing efficacy. In the description of each product, I describe what each ingredient does and why it is there. I encourage you to do your own research as well and be an informed consumer! If you have further questions about ingredients or formulations or suggestions for different ones (always seeking to improve!), don't hesitate to shoot me a message!
