Spirit Pots... er... bottles

The local occult book shop sells these neat little Egyptian Perfume Bottles. They're made of hand-blown glass, and are really pretty. Ever since seeing them, I've wanted to make one into a spirit pot. They look a bit too much like a Genie bottle to pass up.

I bought some in bulk, and I'm grinding the herbs now. I'm going to be putting together everything you need for a Goetic Spirit Pot (bottle) for a Duke of the Goetia. I've got a blend of Venusian herbs that I use with Bune, which I'll put into the bottle. You'll also get a blank copper talisman forged in a Venus hour that you can inscribe with the spirit's seal of your choice.

The following table lists the Dukes of the Goetia, and links to their seal on Joe Peterson's web site. The links are to his bookmarks on the page, and some of them aren't perfectly accurate; you may have to scroll up or down a bit to get to them.

As you can see, the Dukes are pretty handy fellows to have on your side. If you're interested in purchasing one or more, please visit my Products and Services page at the Rufus Opus web site. I have ten total available.
