Black Hen and Black Frizzle Rooster Feather Curio

You'll receive a corked glass vial containing 10 washed, cleaned black feathers from my flock here at Seraphin Station, where our fat, happy chickens get more space to free range than the poor dog gets to run around.

At least one of the feathers will be from my black frizzle rooster. (He's not very big, y'all, and if I tried to fill up a corked vial with only his feathers, well, probably only one person per year would get any frizzle rooster feathers. I figure this way is more equitable.)

In rural conjure, chickens are widely held to be valuable for their ability to scratch up any tricks or messes somebody lays for you in your yard or buries, so they kill the crossing work by scratching it up and then dispersing it as they flap and scratch around.

Any chickens will do, but black chickens are frequently asked after specifically, and *frizzle* chickens are especially prized. (They have a weird feather gene so their feathers curl in the wrong direction instead of lying flat, and this is seen as an indicator of their special aptitude for this kind of thing.)

My frizzle rooster's name is Glenn. He' s named after Glenn Danzig. To find out why, or read more about any of this stuff, visit our blog at seraphinstation.wordpress.com.

HANDLING TIMES: Please note published handling times, which start at 5 business days and will be longer for custom-finished items and large orders. Why? Two reasons: 

One, I make all my formulas in tiny batches, only decanting your oil order from the mother bottle and adding herbs and prayers after your order's come in, for instance. The payoff for your patience is that you get fresh blends and fresh products, made by hand the old fashioned way, by a traditional rootworker with 35 years of experience.

Two, I live in the middle of nowhere and I have to expect time-sucking delays as par for the course, like the internet going down 'cause a cow broke the line (yes, we have DSL) or the postal service just not coming here at all for a few days because a storm washed our mailbox into the ditch down the dirt road, stuff like that.

USAGE: Oils are for prayer and ritual use; they are not cosmetics or perfumes. While some customers do use some dressing oils as anointing oils (which is not the same thing as wearing a perfume or cologne), they are careful to do a skin test first, since they know that I cannot possibly predict individual sensitivities or allergic reactions. All-natural does not equal hypoallergenic, y'all! If you need suggestions on how to use condition and anointing oils in the conjure tradition, see the Education link up top.

LEGALESE:  As required by law, all items are sold as curios and/or for educational purposes in the study of folklore and popular religion. I use these items myself though - I don't sell anything I haven't used myself - and quite a few customers over the years have sworn by my traditional formulas since I started selling them in 2002.
