As I was making two oils into a spray last night, I realized that I’d never publicized the fact that Quadrivium Supplies does custom work. We have our standard 20 oils, but if there’s something you need and can’t find, we can probably make it for you.
Here’s some custom work we’ve done recently:
- Sage spray – for people with asthma who can’t use smudge sticks, or those who are in spaces where incense or smudging is prohibited, we make a spray that consists of essential oil of sage boiled in distilled water with a handful of solid sage. Then we filter our the solids and bottle the spray, which seems to work just as well as smudging for purifying a space.
- Oil combination sprays – there are oils on our standard list that mix really well together, like Crown of Success and Fortune & Favor, and work very well as a spray for use on clothes, shoes, (possibly) yourself, even as a room spray or linen spray. That particular one has been nicknamed “Crown of Fortune,” since it’s been quite popular. We can turn any oil into a spray, and it doesn’t even cost all that much. The customer buys the oil, the creation of the spray takes about 1/4 of the bottle, we charge a nominal fee for the spray bottle and herbs used in the spray creation, and the customer receives whatever oil is left over and the spray.
- Custom oils – maybe none of the 20 standard oils address what you need. If that’s the case, you can contact us and we’ll create something customized for your purpose. Barring some kind of astrological miracle, we cannot make custom electional oils, but we do use planetary hours and days when making custom oils, as well as the lunar calendar. If we have what we need on hand to make your oil (and our inventory is pretty extensive), you’ll be charged the regular price for a standard oil and a nominal fee for the research and time spent creating it. Most custom oils end up costing about $15. If we don’t have the ingredients you need, but you still want the custom oil, the cost of the ingredients will be added to the oil. Since we don’t normally use all that much of a given herb or essential oil, you’ll be given the option to receive the rest of the ingredient you purchased, if you’d like to have it.
Starting in February, there will be a page added to the site that will list consultation fees. You can always email us for help using the oils, but if your problem involves six emails and a telephone call, there has to be some kind of compensation for the time. But don’t worry – your emails of “HELP I HAVE OIL X AND HOW DO I DO Y WITH IT?!?!?” will still get answered for free.
