Day 3 of #inktobershapeshifted : Fairies and Goblins

Day 3 brings us something delicious. As mentioned in my stores, and as you can find in my shop, this theme is dear to me as I have two herbal tisane blends on the subject: The Faerie Court and The Goblin Market. I was thinking about this theme and the commonalities. The tricksy nature of both creatures. And I guess that Christina Rossetti's poem is still on my mind as decided to make a cordial of the tempting fruit both creatures offer to wayward humans to try and tie them to their land forever. Maybe for a blood tithe they must pay or out of their trickster nature, who knows?

This elixir is called Temptation: a rich garnet red, it is made of peach, elderberry, and orange fruit, the spirits of vodka and whiskey, and honey for sweetness. It is infused and blended finally with saffron, tulsi, and attar of roses. A fitting toast to the queen of the fairies or perhaps the libation of choice from the goblin market? Will you be tempted to take a sip and promise away your days and years to the fey?

This listing is for a 2 oz bottle of the elixir.

#inktober or #drawlloween for those unfamiliar with the concept, occurs each October. It began with some artists posting prompts and took off and now many different prompts exist: new themes for each day for artists all over the world to offer their interpretation! I loved the concept, but as I am not a visual artist by way of pen, ink, or brush, I decided to make my own version I am calling #inktobershapeshifted: using the prompts to create my own offerings for the month around given themes. The themes chosen are from Manière Noire’s #noirlifestyleprompts and I am very excited to keep posting them throughout the month. These creations I offer to you are one of a kind, created specifically for each day and theme. I sincerely hope you enjoy them and will treasure them as I enjoyed creating them!
