PAMPERING PRODUCTS FOR THE SPOOKIEST SEASON
1. The Hex Files
Every witch worth her black salt should keep this potion—a face tonic crafted with rose water under the new moon and available in three scents (woodsy Timber, citrusy Cypress, and lavender)—on her vanity.
Rose and Cross Revival Tonic, $6, occulux.etsy.com
2. Pool of Blood
Turn your bath into a murder scene by dropping one of these blood orange and coconut milk bombs—with coconut oil and mineral-rich clay—into the water, because even vampires like to vamp.
Blood and Milk Bath Bomb, $6.50, witchbabysoap.com
3. Grave Digger
Slough all that dead epidermis with this sea salt and natural clay body scrub. Its shea butter, coconut oil, and grapeseed oil makes skin so soft, it will practically fall off your bones.
Graveyard Ultra Rich Body Scrub, $15, witchbabysoap.com
4. Stone Cold Stare
Medusa may not be the go-to Greek for softening up, but this soap in her likeness will help scrub off your snakeskin with an aroma that hints of lime, bergamot, frankincense, and lavender.
She’s Staring At You Medusa Soap, $15, bathsabbath.etsy.com
5. The Madonna of the Macabre
What’s better than a coffin-shaped kit celebrating Elvira’s 35th anniversary featuring a dagger mirror, a pop-up spider web, five eye shadow shades, and blush? Only lying in an actual coffin.
