Ceridwen is a Celtic goddess of the cauldron and shape shifting. In Welsh tradition she is mother of the famous bard, Taliesin. He originally was known as Gwion, and when he spilled drops from Ceridwen's cauldron onto his fingers, he became all-knowing. Ceridwen was angered by this theft, and she chased him, both of them transforming into many different hunter/hunted forms until Ceridwen finally captured, ate, and re-birthed Gwion into his poet form, the famous Welsh bard Taleisin.

Ceridwen is therefore a shapeshifter goddess for those who seek to learn these arts. She is honored as a Cauldron goddess, appearing as often as the Crone as in her more seductive guises. Her cauldron was named Amen, and it produced a drink that gave insight and inspiration. Because of her cauldron powers, she is considered one of the best patroness deities for Western tradition Witches to learn from, and she is an obvious choice to devotees who practice herbal healing or the concoction of potions.

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 and/or jojoba oil, so with any care they should last a very long time. "
