Ishtar is July’s monthly Goddess. Each month, I will be formulating a product inspired by a Goddess suggested by my customers. Would you like to suggest a Goddess? You can do so here!
ISHTAR, the Babylonian Goddess of fertility, love and war. She is the counterpart to the Sumerian Goddess Inanna. Her symbols are lions, and the eight-pointed star. She is also believed to have been the divine personification of the planet Venus.
Ishtar is a vivid berry pink with a strong blue/teal interference shimmer. If you liked “Enchanted Turkish Delight” rouge from the January Ephemera box, you’ll love Ishtar- she’s a more intense, shifty version, but with more blue shift instead of just teal.
Her label (on mini and full size jars) is the Babylonian Queen of the Night relief, believed to feature an aspect of Ishtar/Inanna. SHOP ISHTAR
