Bast oil is made for the beloved and playful Egyptian cat goddess. Also known as Bastet, she is an ancient Goddess of the lower Nile. Bast is a goddess of happiness, dancing and the musical arts. Her sacred city was Bubastis. Bast is often seen as the gentler rival or counterpart to Sekhmet, the Lion headed goddess of the Upper Nile, although they sometimes seem to be the same goddess. She is said to have protected men from contagious diseases and evil spirits, perhaps a reflection of the cat's rodent-killing service to urban civilization.

What is a cat's favorite noncombustible incense? "Myrrh!" Bast oil would be the preferred love perfume of crazy cat ladies! It is relaxing, a natural for parties, art shows, and the theater. While Bast oil contains real catnip essential oil, MOST cats do not respond to catnip essential oil the same way that they do to the herb. I've met a few older cats who have made the association between the essential oil fragrance and the water-soluble active ingredient, valerianic acid. You probably won't be mauled by your household or neighborhood felines.

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."
