Welcome to the Moonseed cottage. There is hot tea waiting for you on the table made with peppermint, rose and vervain. Dried herbs are hanging from the roof and bones rattle by the window, a fire crackles in the kitchen and above it hangs an old black cauldron bubbling away. The cottage smells of smoke and magic mingled with the scent of roses drift in through an open window. Make yourself comfortable while you browse the apothecary, here you will find ritual bath potions, evocative perfumes, sacred candles and many more items to add a little magic into your everyday....
“Yule is when the dark half of the year cedes to the light half. Known as Solstice Night, Awaiting the rebirth of the Sun God. Bonfires, wassailing crops with toasts of spiced cider a time of madness..." ― Anujj Elviis
Hello and welcome to my little cottage apothecary! My name is Lauren and I'm the witch behind Moonseed Rituals. Combining the powers of plant magic, ritual, and old folk practices; Moonseed has been created for those who want a complete connection with the natural world through mind, body and spirit.
From the misty mountains of Scotland to the holy isles of Avalon, I have travelled through many of these sacred sites where I’ve been deeply inspired to create something that can capture the essence of these places and incorporate them into daily use. With my background in beauty therapy and my love of potion making, Moonseed was born.
In the apothecary you will find many magical and enchanting products from ritual candles to bathing potions, all hand crafted in small batches with high quality, natural ingredients.
All Moonseed products are made with ethically sourced ingredients, no synthetics, and care for the planet in mind. From the glass jars to the labels, I aim to use British supplies and producers when possible.
If you would like to know more, head to the About page.
The Seelie Queen perfume oil is inspired by the Queen of the Seelie court, along with the beautiful artwork of Brian Froud and the folklore of herbs and plants by Scott Cunningham and Culpepper. It’s my hope that when you wear this dreamy scent, you will be transported into the faerie realms to drink fairy wine in a gossamer dress and to dance the night away with pixies and an Elven prince.
This perfume is lovingly crafted with a blend of Rose Damask, Rose geranium, Benzoin and Patchouli (all pure essential oils, no synthetics.) Each oil comes with a little cotton bag and decorated with dried posies.
“The most gorgeous scent, I never want to smell of anything else - it's truly magical. Packaging was lovely too. Can't wait to buy another!"
