“The making of the greenwitch....is an old spring rite...for greeting summer and charming a good harvest of crop and fish.”
~ Susan Cooper
This is the perfect gift for those allergic to traditional perfume. I hand fabricate each of these creamy, solid perfumes utilizing pure, plant essences and my own plant infusions. In some cases there is even beeswax from my fabulous honey bees! The mini compact measures 42mm tall (just over an inch and a half) by 33mm wide (1 1/4 inches) and the inside recessed circle for the solid perfume pan measures 23mm. The small tray will supply about 30 applications of the fragrance.
PLEASE NOTE: I place a small ball of earthquake putty between the little pan of solid perfume and the well of the compact as a non- permanent solution for securing the round tin.
This antique inspired mini compact opens to reveal a separate little tin pan filled with GreenWitch solid natural perfume. These pretty compacts are made here in the USA from vintage molds that go back to the 1940's. Each one has been plated with a special finish to create an antique quality. No lead or nickel have been utilized. The front of the oval shaped compact contains a Victorian diamond design that has a warm antique brass finish. The ornate design is engraved, so you can feel it if you run your finger over it. Pretty and feminine! The compact arrives in a pouch with four informational cards all contained within a pillow box, ready for giving to someone special or for yourself.
As a fragrance the Greenwitch was woven with infusions and pure aromatic plants essences of the wild magick of sea and land. Woods, hawthorne leaves and flowers within the framework and seaweed for the elemental water. An eco luxe, chypre perfume inspired by the book The GreenWitch by Susan Cooper. This is an intoxicating golden elixir I have handmade with completely natural ingredients and a spell for bounty.

An altar to your essential nature. Please note true natural botanical perfumes do not last on the skin like synthetic perfumes or perfumes not labeled correctly. Since this is an "authentic" nature perfume, made without ANY synthetics, isolates or animal ingredients the longevity will not be as long as perfumes using non-botanical ingredients. However, GreenWitch has extraordinary longevity for an authentic natural perfume due to fine craftmanship in the base notes.
You can also order the solids pans individually so that you can choose a different scent for each occasion:
