║─GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN
EXILE is our take on an ancient concoction with a storied history & almost as many variants as there are legends surrounding it
it was supposed to protect against the black plague. while most of the ingredients in the numerous recipes—including our own—have antibacterial properties, the accepted theory is that aromatics like rosemary, clove & garlic actually act as powerful natural insect repellents. thus, they repelled fleas—the true carriers of the plague.
in the 1800s, these blends made their way to the US and were adopted & adapted by hoodoo and folk magic practitioners who still use it in protective & banishment spells to this day.
in PREY FOR DAY's kitchen, its form has been altered slightly to bring you a refreshing & modernized experience. we swapped the traditional garlic for lemon oil (which also has antibacterial, antiseptic & anti-fungal properties but smells uplifting & energizing rather than the still air of pizza night). in the spirit of repelling harmful crawlies & unwanted wing-things without smelling like salad dressing, we dropped the vinegar & subbed in a light top note of eucalyptus, a proven tick repellent.
released for a limited time between february 1-14, this enticing creation comes housed in a luxe matte black glass tumbler & is only available in 8 oz form.
