scent: black cherry, almond and cocoa butter.
intention: strength, balance, intuition, success
i came up with the idea for this oil after ordering a bunch of random fragrances to meet the free shipping minimum. i'm not really a fan of fruity scents, but i remember growing up, my dads go to lotion was this Jergen's Cherry Almond scented lotion, so naturally, i wanted to see for nostalgia purposes if i could make something similar, but better, and give it deeper meaning. also, a lot of you may or may not know, but when i was in high school, my first ever rap name was Mizz Cherry, so the nostalgia in this scent runs extremely deep. i started digging into my books, looking for magical properties related to the cherry, and there were the usual soft, feminine, sweet correspondences, such as love rituals, fertility magic, etc. it wasn't until i started to dig around online that i found the few random facts that led me to the black cherry, and inspired me to create duality, considering for the most part aphrodite's apple pie is feminine and fertile and fruity enough for all of us, and i didn't want to step on her toes. i learned that black cherries represent immortality and longevity. the trees live to be over 200 years and they take a very long time to decay. but what's even more interesting about that is, its not common for black cherry trees to fully mature, they are usually found in environments where other trees with higher canopies block their ability to flourish. so being a black cherry is sort of like being the daughter of a woman who had all the odds stacked against her and she prospered anyways, and the other side of that being love and fertility and things of that nature. well, that's enough of my nerdy rambling! :) duality is a beautiful ruby red shimmer color with black and green shimmer. duality is here for the fall and winter months only, so grab a bottle while she's around!
