Cernunnos is regarded as a wild, shape shifter god, and he best represented by the Gunderstrap Cauldon, originally known to be a Celtic, now thought to be Scythian. His name is known from only one of a multitude of ancient sites. His representations suggest the shamanistic oneness of hunter with hunted. Snake and Deer are his totems.

Cernunnos' name is known only from one engraving on the altar of Nautes which originally was in Gaul, another location in Gaul, and a third inscription found in Luxemburg. He is depicted in Celtic art in many places, however, often in the company of animals; deer, snakes, wolves, etc., so he is obviously an animal deity.

Most of what is known about him is best guesses; unlike so many other Celtic gods, goddesses, warriors, kings and heroines of legend, Cernunnos is not named in a single legend, song or tale. He is believed to be the same god as the Herne of British stories. We must elucidate most of our understanding of Cernunnos from the very captivating images of him. From these we imagine him to be a god of the shamanistic mysteries, one with the animals and wild nature. My Cernunnos oil is as mysterious and wild as the deity himself.

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.
