About

Two Sides to Every Coin

I started Nightshade and Company as the dark sister to the perpetually positive and perennially perky Luna Joon (also here on Etsy). Where Luna Joon is vibrant, joyful and playful...Nightshade is dark, melancholy and worn.

If you read and love Edgar A. Poe and Mary Shelley...if you love old horror movies...if you identified more with Wednesday Addams than Marcia Brady ~ then Nightshade and Company is for you.

I have been an herb and oil worker for more than three decades, perfecting my own brand of alchemy and successfully sharing the results with friends and clients. Now I would like to share it with you.

Just like there are two sides to every coin, (light and dark, hot and cold, life and death), there are two sides to most people as well. We all have a light and a dark side...and just like day has its purpose, so does night. Dark isn't bad or scary...it's just...well, dark. It's quiet, solitary, introspective and intuitive.

And it's something we should all be comfortable with...because fact is, dark is part of life - and it can be embraced or be feared. Nightshade and Company embraces and celebrates the night...the moon...the shadows, because in these things we see what's inside instead of outside. The night brings peace and sleep and dreams...and mystery. It's part of the grand cycle.

Each Nightshade and Company item is carefully crafted with the best ingredients available. All essential oils used are therapeutic grade, and all fragrance oils are perfumer quality. Herbs are either grown myself or procured from a reputable grower - free from chemicals and pesticides. I don't cut corners when it comes to quality. Every item is charged with intention and carefully assembled according the laws and practice of alchemy, both spiritual and physical.

I sincerely hope you enjoy the treasures we have to offer, and become part of either the Luna Joon or Nightshade and Company family (even better if both!). Find us on Facebook (Luna Joon) and on my personal blog at lunajoonok.wordpress.com.

Welcome...and Carpe Noctem!!!

    Since 1979 I have been obsessed with oils and perfumery, and have ardently practiced alchemy and herbalism. Since I can remember, I have been fascinated by the oddly morbid and darkly romantic. This shop is the perfect combination of two loves.

Additional policies and FAQs
Regarding our botanicals:
Handmade body products are fabulous to use and good for your skin, but their shelf life is limited. Unlike many commercial products, handmade toiletries do not contain the chemicals used to prolong shelf life and allow the product to survive extreme conditions during shipping. For best results, handmade body products can be stored in the refrigerator, or in a cool, dry place.

Keep all products away from children. As with any product, even natural products, they can be toxic if misused.

Please store all perfumes or essential oil blends in a dark cool area away from sunlight. Heat and light can weaken the properties of essential oils and other natural ingredients. Vanilla oils and related products will darken in time, but this will not affect the fragrance or fragrance power!


Essential/fragrance oils, salts, scrubs, herbs, sprays, etc. may aggravate medical conditions (for example, rosemary essential oil may aggravate epilepsy, or shea butter cannot be used by those with allergic reactions to latex). Do not use products with ingredients with which you have a known sensitivity. Please do a patch test if you feel you are sensitive to any body, or beauty products including fragrance. You can be allergic to NATURAL and or ORGANIC products as well!

Do not use products on open wounds, or on broken or irritated skin. Products are for adult, external use only, unless otherwise indicated. If rash or irritation develops, discontinue use and see a physician if necessary. If eye contact occurs, flush with plenty of water and seek medical attention if needed. Contact poison control center immediately if accidental ingestion occurs.

Preservatives help guard against contamination by microorganisms but Luna botanicals and body products contain no preservatives. They do have a shelf life. Aromatherapy and perfume oils last about one year, lotions are the same...face creams should be used within six months and scrubs should be used within 3-4 months. Treat your botanicals sort of like you do your groceries and store them in a cool place.

We are required by law to carry the following warning: Our products are not medications/medicated cosmetics and they are not meant to diagnose, treat, or prevent any medical condition. Please use at your own risk, taking into account all personal allergies and sensitivities. In the even of rash or irritation, discontinue use immediately. When in doubt, please test on a small patch of skin before applying liberally.
