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.

$15 1/2 oz. bottle  

Hestia oil

Hestia is the ancient Greek goddess of the hearth. Although less known today, she was one of the most universally honored goddesses of the Greeks of classical times. Not only was she represented at the hearth of most homes, but she had a public hearth in the center of most cities, as it was recognized that the hearth fire is the most basic civilizing factor in urban life.

My dear friend and witchy sister Edana was my inspiration and Muse for this formula. Between the two of us we were able to research and divine a larger nature of Hestia than could be merely Wikipedia'd! Being childless and (as yet) never married women ourselves, Hestia warmed up to us pretty quickly. We now understood her as a Fire Goddess, more powerful than the "mousey younger sister who has to stay single to take care of the aging parents" image we had earlier held. And while it is Prometheus who steals fire from Olympus and gives it to humans, it is Hestia who tames the fire and brings it into domestication. She then also becomes an inventor of all technologies for managing fire, and an innovator of all sciences that are advanced by fire, from cooking to chemistry to ceramics and on. As a fire becomes a gathering point for humans seeking warmth, Hestia is also the unifying force which brings civic leaders together in the city to develop policies of governance. She can then be seen as the facilitator of discussion, deliberation, and diplomacy. Arguments may flare up, but Hestia tames the fires.

Hestia oil has spicy, fiery ingredients, and also very tame and domestic ones. It is very comforting and a little bit sweet.
