December is here, and it promises to be a great end to a wonderful year for Good Judy. The last month of the year brings a rather large update. There are some great APM: December perfumes, the return of Flaming Red, a few new Limited Edition Aromatic Spritzers, a fabulous new Signature Scent, discontinued perfumes, and I am most excited to announce our newest product...Mineral Bath Soaks!

***ALMANAC PER MENSEM: DECEMBER

Almanac per Mensem perfumes are available for the entire month and are available as Whiff selections! Available 12.1.2009 through 12.31.2009, or while supplies last.

(once in a) Blue Moon: Every once in a Blue Moon there is a month that sees two full moons. In December, the Blue Moon rises on the last day of the year. Once defined as being a fourth full moon in a season, a Blue Moon commonly refers to any second full moon during a calendar month. Blue orchid, ipomoea alba, blue moon wisteria, pennyroyal, lunar spices

Capricorn (Essential Elixir): December 22nd – January 20th: The Goat. Cardinal. Earth. Saturn. Uranus. Stable. Practical. Prudent. Careful. Humorous. Tenacious. Pessimistic. Reserved. Ambitious. Loyal. Vetiver, bergamot, amyris, oakmoss, gurjum balsam, ginger

December (Essential Elixir): December was once the 10th month of the Roman calendar. As the 10th month, December had 30 days until King Numa Pompilius, who made it the 12th month and shortened it to 29 days. Eventually, Julius made December 31 days long. Bitter almond, spruce, fir needle, ho wood, sugar mint

Hanukkah: The Festival of Lights celebrates the purification of a desecrated temple and commemorates the miracle of one day's worth of consecrated oil (used to light the eternal flame) lasting for eight days. In 2009, Hanukkah begins sunset 12.11.2009 and ends sunset 12.19.2009. For eight days, special songs and daily prayers are recited and celebrants partake in traditional fried foods, games, and the giving of gifts. Olive oil, beeswax candles, sufganiyot, chocolate gelt

Long Night Moon: December's full moon is called Long Night Moon and is aptly named for the long, dark nights with Winter Solstice being the longest night of the year. Paper whites, winterberry, dianthus, rosewood, pink peppercorn, lunar spices

Narcissus: December's birth flower, the Narcissus symbolizes rebirth and new beginnings with undertones of vanity and death. Famously named after the Greek story of Narcissus, the flower was said to be the one Persephone was picking when Hades kidnapped her for his wife. With Persephone stolen away to the underworld, the grieving Earth was plunged into winter. When Hades relented and agreed to allow Persephone leave of the underworld, flowers bloomed…the first being Narcissus. Narcissus, spices

Turquoise: December's birthstone, Turquoise is said to protect and heal its wearer while increasing courage and luck. Turquoise opens channels of communication which strengthens the bonds of friendship. This ancient stone is considered to be sacred, promoting mental and spiritual clarity, kindness and understanding. Green desert lily, blue cactus nectar, pear blossom
