Fat and the Moon
To sense the world through smell connects us to the most ancient part of our brains, our olfactory system is our taproot to deep memory. When you smell the fragrance of a plant, you are hearing it speak to you; botanical scent is chemical communication. Fat and the Moon's Plant Perfumes are entirely plant based; so to smell the Plant Perfumes is to enter the collective memory of plant and human conversation.
Available in 0.3oz vial or 2 fl oz bottle
Artemis at Dawn
Artemis, the goddess of the bitches who howl at the moon. She is the virgin huntress, protectress of the wilds. Her virginity is a reflection of her self sufficiency, rather than her chastity. Her sensuality is for herself. When we turn inward and explore our internal moonlit forests, she is there.
Artemis at Dawn evokes...running barefoot, flanked by your pack, taking a bite out of a rose.
Ingredients: Biodynamic spirits*, jojoba oil*, essential oils of rose geranium*, patchouli* and black pepper*
The Green Man is an aspect of the masculine that needs re-membering. The life-affirming vitality of the Green Man sparks vigorous yet harmonious growth.

Gender-inclusive scents for all bodies, minds, and hearts.

The Wolf Shepherd is a Spirit of the edge. He is the wounded healer of the Slovenian forest and field. The limping Wolf Shepherd summons the wolves to roam in the winter and dismisses them from the pastures in the spring. He maintains the tension and balance of the wild and tame. The Wolf Shepherd is ancient. He is an aspect we have forgotten when we believe Nature is a distant place outside of ourselves. We evoke him to remember the deep and ancient parts of our own hearts.
Wolf Shepard evokes.. prayers sent to the Sun God, apothecary drawers, and ancestral visitations.
Ingredients: Biodynamic spirits*, jojoba oil*, essential oils of celery seed*, frankincense*, vetiver* and patchouli*
Let’s talk energetics. Scent isn’t just smell - it’s vibration + smell.
