Demeter is an Olympian goddess, but rarely dwelled there. Demeter prefers the living Earth and its denizens to the lofty retreat of other Greek gods. Agriculture, motherhood, and harvest are her provenance. Demeter is the sister of Zeus, and their daughter is Persephone. She is herself the daughter of Cronus and the great Mother goddess Rhea.

Demeter taught humans the arts of agriculture, how to harvest, plant, and save the seeds of crop plants. Her beloved human subjects were very fond of her and set places at their tables, just in case she showed up to dinner.

Demeter is best known in the story of her and her daughter, Persephone. When Persephone is kidnapped by the god of the Dead, Hades, (or perhaps marries him by choice?) Demeter grieves the loss, and allows nothing to grow. This period of barrenness becomes the first Winter. Then when Persephone rejoins her mother, Demeter's joy creates the Spring.

Demeter's strength is in her steadfastness and devotion to the fertility of the Earth. Any farmer or gardener would find her to be the goddess of choice. Since she sees the agricultural cycle all the way through, from planting to harvest and the fallow times, you may appeal to her when you must commit to see a whole project through from start to finish. Natural Magick Demeter oil is simple, smelling like fresh harvest, grain and contains real Rose absolute.

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.
