The Wild & Wise Collective celebrates the Fall

We've had a creative challenge going on and I must say that we have been very creative and inspired. Lots of colors and warm scents. We are all ready for the change of season.

Here's a little flavor of our offerings:
-Griselda from Awesomeart has made 5 one of a kind Spirit Art Dolls which make great altar decorations and conversational pieces.

-Madame Night from ShaktiStudios made a pair of "Druid Bling" Autumn Oak and Acorn earrings with beautiful earthy colors : shades of copper and green to symbolize the changing trees. Bronze Pearls that look like the burnished brown harvest of nutbearing trees, copper beads that kinda reminiscent of pine cones, green Bloodstones, copper glass beads as well as a beautiful copper Oak Leaf charm and an Acorn charm. Don't miss out on her ultraviolet handsculpted altar Goddess ;).

-Madame Piper from WhimsyHollow prepared a batch of Apple Jack & Peel handmade soaps. These soaps are symbolic of the abundance of the autumn harvest, the crisp and comforting scents of autumn... juicy ripe apples, warm grounding cinnamon and clove.

-Melissa from manicmagnolia makes us dive deeper into the Fall with her Pumpkin Harvest Soaps. Moisturizing and loaded with natural goodness: Pumpkin puree, goat's milk, organic honey and many spicy, woody oils.

-Sarah from lilithsapothecary wants to adorn and pamper us for the Fall. She made an Autumn Equinox necklace with glass seed beads, citrine nuggets, orange jade trade beads, swarkovski crystals, glass nuggets, bali silver, and silver ivy leaf pendants. As well as herbalicious facial steams and body polish ;).

-Juli from OzarkGypsyArt made a Folk Art Rag Doll with recycled materials. A wonderful creature ready to bless any space with his delightful presence.

-Madame Xiane from the House of the Three Ravens blended a Lunarsa anointing oil. A base of Safflower oil - safflower being one of humanity's oldest crops - Red sandalwood powder has been steeped to add a woody base scent as well as a vivid orange shade to the oil. Macerated with the red sandalwood is crushed Coriander seed, which adds a lemony-spicy note to the oil, and finally pure Red Mandarin essential oil.

-Michelle from violetroseherbals prepared an Autumn’s Salt and Earth Scrub. Blended with dead sea salt and sassafras, this scrub is a great exfoliator and detoxifies the skin. Sassafras root is a blood purifier and has been used for skin troubles. Apricot oil is a light, non-greasy oil appropriate for any skin type. The essential oils include bottom notes, such as patchouli and cedarwood, and are sure to calm the spirit.

-I have prepared some natural Spicy Harvest Soaps with organic apple juice, real cinnamon and cloves, a touch of rhassoul clay and a wee bit of amber perfume oil. The scent is gentle yet gets stronger under the shower ;). I also blended a Mabon/Fall Equinox tea with organic rooibos, apple and spices...Sweet, earthy, fragrant and aromatic. It's a Fall Symphony in your cup ;).
