Baal oil

Baal is the consort of Astarte/Ashtoreth in some legendary cycles. This Canaanite god of bounty is blamed for child sacrifice by Biblical pseudo-archaeologists, but really "Baal" just means "Lord," and so he is probably an amalgamation of any regional Canaanite local deities. Cattle are sacred to him.

According to The Witches God by Janet and Stewart Farrar, "He was the son of the supreme god El. ...Baal's fertility function was primarily that of rain and thunderstorms, because it was these highly seasonal phenomena which caused the crops to spring up." In many ways Baal represents the cyclical vegetation and agricultural deity who is always rising, being slain and then reborn. The bull is his totem animal, so he would be a natural patron God for any farmer or cattle rancher, especially those husbanding in arid lands. Baal would also be a deity who we could offer our prayers to during cycles of drought, to try to bring the rain to where it is needed.

Baal oil is given its green color and smell of freshly harvested crops by the true Hay essential oil I blend into it. It is made on Sundays nearest the Full Moon.

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% jojoba oil, so with any care they should last a very long time. They are priced according to the ingredients requested by the gods."
