I was going to put her in the shop before the holidays, but we ended up having quite the time with her. It was a very stressful holiday and she brought about some fun times to keep our minds off of it. We call her Absinthe because she is trippy. Plain and simple, she is a TRIP. I think she has been here for about 10 years. She gets borrowed by our friends a lot because she is so unique to work with. Just being in her presence makes a person feel as if they are under the influence of psychedelics. Meditation with her, especially with a group of friends, is a really strange otherworldly experience. It's kind of impossible to explain what she is like. She is a mushroom trip. A mescaline adventure. She feels like LSD or peyote is IN THE AIR when we work with her. Lisa got her from a coven in Normandy, France, around 2011ish, I think. We always kept her in a glass cabinet, because her energy just kind of seeps into the air, and it's such a strange feeling to get hit with that head change when you are not expecting it. Absinthe goes by Abbie, her birth name was Abigail but she never used that name, "it was my mother's name as well". Abbie is originally from Paris. Her family had an apothecary, in the Belle Epoche era. She had access to all sorts of herbs and substances that she would put together to create her own "head medicines" - like psychedelic mushrooms, morphine, marijuana, and all sorts of "medications" that she would create for her clients. She was well-loved in town and very popular for her creations. Everyone in town knew her as the "lady with the long red hair" and it really WAS unusual to see a french woman with flowing red hair like that. Down to her bum. It was NOT the way "ladies" were supposed to wear their hair. The society women in town had a lot of issues with Abbie. They called her a witch, they tried to get her shop closed down, and they wrote scathing articles about her in the society papers. They said she was "channeling the devil" when they found out she had a scrying glass and knew how to do cartomancy. But it was 1875, during the most beautiful era in the history of France, and they could not phase her. She held strong and her shop became a very popular spot not only for her trippy head medicines but people who were drawn to her intuitive nature. They would come to her for all sorts of reasons. Her shop - to me - sounds like it was way ahead of its time. People flocked to her because she had created a cure for "melancholy" (what they used to call depression). It sounds like microdosing to me. She was way ahead of her time. And, yes, she WAS a witch - but back then people did not like to label themselves as such. After all, "witches" were old hags who were known poisoners and no woman in her right mind would ever call herself a witch. That didn't start happening until the middle of the next century. She was a proud healer and medicine woman. She thinks it's strange that people use the word "witch" like it's just a word. Her own ancestors were persecuted for witchcraft centuries prior, and she thinks the word has dark connotations. I feel I should warn you that Abbie wants you to take REAL absynthe with her. You know, the whole sugar on a slotted spoon, light it on fire, etc. She really lights up and becomes so very ALIVE when the absynthe comes out. Some people have drunk the potion exactly as she wants, but it's not a necessity. The trip is the same, regardless if you drink it or not. It's as if it is coming from her. Wooziness, unfocused eyes, the feeling of leaving one's body. The sense of being dragged back in time and watching people from above - floating over the city. It's always the same kind of trip no matter how many times we commune with her. She needs to be with a mature spiritkeeper, someone who is experienced. She is extremely active. She wants to participate in our rituals and ceremonies. She loves symbolism. She loves astral work and dreamweaving. She is too trippy for a newbie. Abbie communicates well using all the tools we offer her.
About the doll: She is a VERY OLD antique Boudoir doll, with a stuffed sawdust body. She wears a real antique dress. She will NOT come with a doll stand. She DOES come with a green glass crescent moon bottle, she adores it.

IMPORTANT - If you look at a spirit doll and feel a tug in your heart, that is how you know the doll is meant for you. You will feel it in your soul. I can reserve a doll for you for up to 2 weeks while you decide. Email me with any questions you have regarding this doll, or haunted dolls in general.
FYI: In my old shop, we had to have a disclaimer explaining that haunted items were "for entertainment purposes only" and this disclaimer is needed for some credit card processors as well - However, you need to know, as a potential buyer/adopter that I am NOT responsible for any paranormal activity that you might experience in your home once you adopt a spirit. This is serious and many people who do not know what they are doing have had some pretty overwhelming experiences usually due to their own lack of knowledge or understanding about what it means to be a spirit keeper. If you are under the age of 18, please do some research before trying to adopt a spirit. As a seller, I will repeat, there are NO REFUNDS on haunted dolls - I will not guarantee that you will have the same experiences as I have had. but if you know your stuff, do your research, and are prepared for anything, then you will!
