This lush, full bodied Diana oil formulation is dedicated to the Stregha or Ephesus Moon goddess aspect of Diana, she who is mother to Herodias/Aradia, and courtesan to Lucifer. This Diana is as wild as Artemis, but motherly rather than maiden, suckling boy, girl and beast. If you are looking for an oil to honor Diana the Roman maiden goddess, please use Artemis.

My Diana oil is inspired by the legends told by Charles Leland in Aradia, or the Gospel of the Witches. In one of my favorites, Diana is the Moon, in love with her brother Lucifer, who is the Sun. She circles after, chasing him, but he always manages to stay on the other side of the sky from her (e.g., day and night chasing each other.) Diana finally gained access to Lucifer's bed using a shape shifting trick: she transformed herself into the form of Lucifer's favorite cat. When Lucifer awoke in the morning, he was very angry to find that it was Diana he had slept with, and evicted her from his quarters. But it was too late, for Diana had conceived by him and their daughter became Aradia, Queen of the Witches.

I also take cues from the famous Diana of Ephesus statue. Some say all those things on her chest are nuts, others say bull testicles. I rather think they are breasts, plenty to suckle the beasts she fosters. If you rescue or foster animals, especially dogs, Diana is likely to be your matron deity.

Natural Magick deity oils are made with reverence and research to be pleasing 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.

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, 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.
