Deity Oils

Natural Magick deity oils are made with reverence and research to be devotional blends for the gods and goddesses they are named for. I research legend and lore, and try to use oils of plants that grew in the lands where the deity originated or rules. The Natural Magick process of using planetary and elemental influences, correspondence, and high quality ingredients is especially appropriate for honoring the gods and bringing their qualities into our lives.

Depending on the deity, these may be very sweet, or very wild, very dark or very bright, or balanced. Bacchus smells like a drunk man who has recently gotten laid, whereas Titania is flowery and fresh. Oshun is lush and spicy, Ganesh smells like curry, Hecate is dark and mysterious. Natural Magick deity oils are not fakey perfumes with imaginitive names, they are olfactory evocation of the gods using plant essences.

Anoint yourself to attune to these deities, or pour into offering bowls or aromatherapy lamps, or anoint statues or fetish objects. I love to give them to priests or priestesses who run open circles or invoke our patron gods and goddesses.

These oils are in beautiful round 1/2 ounce bottles, and most are blended in 100% fractionated coconut oil, so with any care they should last a very long time. They are priced according to the ingredients requested by the gods.

Eris oil

Hail Eris!
"Nobody seems to make an Eris oil," Bruce wrote me. "No, REALLY?"I asked sarcastically. "I think this is a job for Natural Magick Shop!"

I am not exactly an agent of chaos, but I'm not afraid of it either. Like other trickster gods, these folks like to mix it up, keep us on our toes, and more often than not, present challenges to vanity or the arrogance that we can really control things. Eris also contradicts our vainglorious notions that control can produce the best results to any situation.

"Can you wait awhile?" I asked him? ?"Eris will be made (or at least she should be invented) on the Dark Moon during Mercury retrograde, July 2012. That will be July 18th??" (He was writing to me Back in April.)

And so Eris came to be formulated on a lovely Dark Moon. You will find that while the scent will always be challenging, exciting, spooky and erotic, each bottle will be different from the next, because Eris doesn't want a set formula. Like the Moon which bears her name, it is deep blue in color.

What We Know About ERIS (not much)

The Romans left a likeness of Her for posterity--She was shown as a grotesque woman with a pale and ghastly look, Her eyes afire, Her garment ripped and torn, and as concealing a dagger in Her Bosom. Actually, most women look pale and ghastly when concealing a chilly dagger in their bosoms.

Her geneology is from the Greeks and is utterly confused. Either She was the twin of Ares and the daughter of Zeus and Hera; or She was the daughter of Nyx, goddess of night (who was either the daughter or wife of Chaos, or both), and Nyx's brother, Erebus, and whose brothers and sisters include Death, Doom, Mockery, and Friendship. And that She begat Forgetfullness, Quarrels, Lies, and a bunch of gods and goddesses like that.

One day Mal-2 consulted his Pineal Gland* and asked Eris if She really created all of those terrible things. She told him that She had always liked the Old Greeks, but that they cannot be trusted with historic matters. "They were," She added, "victims of indigestion, you know."

Suffice it to say that Eris is not hateful or malicious. But She is mischievous, and does get a little bitchy at times.
