Handcrafted from botanical materials, Erzulie is made primarily from blueberries, but the dye is darkened through a reaction with iron to produce a deep, dark grayish blue. It goes down a soft magenta color and darkens as it dries. Erzulie is named for Erzulie Freda, the Haitian Vodou spirit of love and beauty. She embodies femininity and compassion, but also has a darker side and is often considered jealous and vengeful.

  • All inks ship via USPS First-Class Mail with Tracking at no additional cost. You may upgrade your shipping to Priority or Priority Express during Check-Out. 

    International shipping will be calculated during checkout, depending on weight and destination. 

  • Unlike commercially produced inks, my handmade botanical inks are made from all natural ingredients and do not contain chemical preservatives and anti-fungals.

    Thyme or lemongrass essential oils--and in larger bottles (excluding 5 ml sample size) a whole clove--has been added to prevent mold growth.

    To further protect your inks from developing mold, avoid dipping your pen or brush directly into the ink bottle or jar. Use a dropper/pipette to transfer small amounts of ink into a smaller ink well for dipping.
