Meara's Potions - The Test
Merry Meet :))) One of our fellow sisters of the craft and Moonsong Daily Magick members has a shop on Etsy called Meara's Potions. Her work is amazing and I've been working with her products for a few years now. I can't imagine doing tarot readings without her flying ointment. :))) It helps with my energy during the readings.
Recently she came to me to let me know that she was developing an empath line and wanted to know if I'd be willing to do a blind test. I was excited and accepted but I must confess I was a bit nervous too as it'd be the first time I put my intuitive skills to the test with oils that someone had made. I was excited to see how it would work! :)) I sampled three out of the four that you see above, Dragonfly, Stroll on the beach, and dragonfly.
I took close to a week with the tests, mainly because of one of the oils I felt was changing each day as I used it and it baffled me. Curious which one would do that?
Stroll on the Beach was the one that was changing on me. On the first day that I tried it I didn't care for it but couldn't explain why. I loved the smell, it wasn't that. Energy wise though it was bugging me. I even thought that it made me a little cranky. Weird huh? :))) I do have to add that the mood I experienced was very temporary. I wanted to be sure I wasn't imagining things though so I tested it out several more times after that.
On the second day of working with it I had the same reaction but I was intrigued? I felt pulled to the oil which I found really interesting. Each day I got a little more comfortable to it. I actually felt like I was getting attuned to the oil and asked Libby who runs Meara's potions if it was normal?
This was her response:
"Initially #2 smells odd but all of the oils are designed to help those who are way too hard on themselves. And I think it's really funny that everyone who really needs it is too critical of themselves to allow themselves to be nurtured at first."
I definitely have to say that this one has just hit the must have list for me. :)))) I can tell if I use it every day and if I don't. It's a really powerful oil that definitely helps with self criticism and improves confidence. :)))
The other oils were absolutely amazing as well. :)))
Dragonfly was another one that I found awesome for every day life as well. It is just is so refreshing and energizing. The energy on this oil is very uplifting and just made me happy :))))) It's like that perfect glass of lemonade on a hot day.
Firefly was the final one I tested and I loved it as well. Not surprising as I love everything she makes. :)))
This one though was my initial favorite. The energy on this one felt magickal from the get go. It felt like an oil that would be really appropriate to wear during ritual or energy work. The energy also felt a bit masculine to me but I love that as it helped me with staying grounded and balanced. If I am needing help staying grounded this is the one that I am going for. My familiar taters loves this one as well lol :)))) As soon as I put it on he wants sniffs which I found interesting :)))
So those were the three that I tried and funny enough, I hit all three and what they were for. I thought that was so neat. :)))) So can I successfully sense energy on an oil, yes! How neat is that? :))))) Something all of you may want to try. :))))
I asked Libby to tell you all a little about herself so you can get to know the amazing lady behind these magickal potions a bit better. :)))))
"I always knew I was a little different - we moved every year when I was growing up and the one thing that stayed the same was that I was "so sensitive". My grandmother taught me how to counsel people, how to "listen" for what they were feeling. When she died I was bereft. She never had the words for what we were and as a matriarch she always put care of others before herself.
I beat myself up for a long time for not having her strength, for feeling exhausted by people and needing significant time by myself to feel sane. I was so blessed to find Jasmeine's class and finally understand what I was and that I was not alone. Finally I didn't think something was wrong with me! LOL
As I read and researched more I was disappointed by the lack of effective tools for empaths. As a spiritual counselor and a Wicca teacher I met empaths all the time and the question was always the same - what can I do to stay grounded when I'm not here? I began making oils and incenses for students and clients and eventually these products became Meara's Potions. The line for empaths and sensitives is very close to my heart. I know how hard it is to feel at the mercy of all the energy around you. I have a BS in Biology and Chemistry, I'm getting a degree in herbalism and I study aromatherapy to find the best tools for my own sanity and I'm always looking for new vehicles and combinations to soothe and protect our sensitive natures.

Have an amazingly magickal day!
Much Love and Many Blessings,
P.S. If you pick up any of the oils that I tried let me know what you think, especially the Stroll on the Beach! :))
