Belladonna Perfume ~ The Witches Garden
Long considered traditional medicines in both the New and Old Worlds, the plant allies of the Witches Garden perfume line are still used for sorcery and other occult practices. Four years in the making, this was birthed on a sacred expedition, under the glow of the Full Moon.
Belladonna’s purple flowers stood for silence or falsehood. To the Victorians, a gift of belladonna might be interpreted as a warning, a symbol of death, or a meditation on the symbol of death, or a meditation on the nature of good and evil. Belladonna originates from the Latin bella-donna, meaning “beautiful lady” as the Romans prized this plant for its unique cosmetic properties. Belladonna synthesizes atropine, an alkaloid which is absorbed rapidly into the bloodstream. Upon entering the bloodstream, it produces a number of symptoms. According to an old saying, Belladonna causes anyone exposed to feel “hot as a hare, blind as a bat, dry as a bone, red as a beet, and mad as a hen.” Among these symptoms is dilation of the pupils, which the ladies of the Roman aristocracy appreciated. Belladonna juices were distilled and dropped into the eyes to enlarge the pupils, causing the eyes to appear large, dark, and appealing. It is well documented that enlarged pupils are a sign of sexual arousal and attract the opposite sex, thus Belladonna was used by Roman women to attract men. Belladonna belongs to the devil who tends to it all year except on Walpurgis when he prepares for the witches’ sabbath.
