Circe, well known from Greek myths, is probably a pre Olympian sorceress goddess. She is best known from The Odyssey by the brilliant Greek poet, Homer. Circe turned Odysseus' shipmates into pigs when they visited her island. I am sure they were acting like pigs and deserved it. When Odysseus convinced her to return them to their human forms, she did comply, but they were younger than they had been before. The Trojan hero Aeneas also once sailed past her island, where she wove on her loom. She had lions, bears, boar, and wolves, who once had been men until she used her magic herbs to turn them into beasts.

Circe can be perhaps understood as a witch goddess or Greek queen who repelled the Romans and Trojans attempts to colonize her island! She favored Odysseus, though, and had a child by him. Circe also instructed Odysseus on how to enter the underworld realm of Hades. Her island seems to have also been a burial ground, and Odysseus himself was eventually buried there. Circe is therefore a goddess who is a gatekeeper between the realms of the living and the dead. Loom-weaving is a metaphor for the determination of destiny and fate, so she is a personally powerful goddess in this way as well.

Natural Magick determines the Redbud tree, (species in the genus Cercis) to be correspondent with this goddess of beauty, witchcraft, transformation and illusion/unmasking. I ritually harvest these flowers and include them in this oil devoted to Circe. I think you will find it as seductive, bright, and challenging as this goddess of enchantment.

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.
