Get Witchy With Erzulie's Voodoo-Inspired Perfumes And Oils

If you hadn't noticed, it's October, and we are deeply entrenched in the spookiest, most mysterious time of the year. Channel your inner witchy woman with some exotic fragrances inspired by New Orleans' rich Voodoo tradition? Erzulie's boutique — named for Erzulie-Freda, the Haitian Voodoo (or Vodou, as it's traditionally spelled) goddess of love, passion, and all things beautiful — is deeply rooted in NOLA's magical French Quarter district, and specializes in handcrafting traditional oils and perfumes infused with herbs, essential oils, and gemstones used for centuries by New Orleans residents...and beyond. Not only will these beautifully packaged soaps, oils, and perfumes leave you soft and aromatic with bouquets of caledonia and sandalwood (to name a few), but they might even help you resolve a few personal woes. Each product is handcrafted by the shop's resident spiritual practitioners to correspond to a specific deity and enhance anything from love to prosperity, healing to intuition. Do I smell a True Blood cameo?
