OIL  (for Women)

The ultimate secret weapon of the Goddess!  This Romany love oil was believed to have been blended for the Egyptian Queen, Cleopatra, primarily so that she could seduce, influence & control the leader of the invading Roman army, Julius Caesar.  History tells us that it worked, and not just on Caesar!

Use VENUS LOVE OIL sparingly (and only when you’re seriously out hunting!), and, as Coco Chanel said … ‘wear it low on the body … and your body heat will do the rest’.  When you see someone you like and begin to feel excited, your heart beats a little faster causing your body temperature to rise even more, giving an added oomph to the scent of the Venus Oil

Venus Oil can also be worn with your favourite perfume as its effect is subtle, subliminal; acting directly on the brain.  It is, however, very important that you don’t use the Venus Oil as an everyday scent.  Venus Oil should only be used when you are out seriously hunting!

$4.50, 2ml vial.

Playing with the Universe:


This series of workshops is about finding out how we, each, make magic work & how we make it fail.  It’s a Magic 101.  When we know the Rules of the Game, we can generate magic that is, individually, much more fun, much more interesting, much more exciting and much more satisfying … … unless you don’t want to …

Dates & times of workshops on the left.



I’ve had several people contact us looking for others interested in specific areas such as Ceremonial Magic, Kabala, Shamanism, etc.  If you are looking for someone that might share the same interest, email me or phone and I’ll try to put you in contact with each other.  I suggest that you use email, mobile phone or PO boxes as points of contact rather than home phone or home addresses to maintain privacy and anonymity until you feel comfortable & ready for closer contact.




Tarot readings are available during the week at Vermont and Saturdays at St Andrew’s Market.  Readings are $30 and you can book by phone or email, or just drop in and see us ... 

Good roads and fair weather,

David …
