Many people think of this gentle Asian goddess of compassion and mercy as the Oriental version of Our Lady of Guadalupe, but to my knowledge she is never depicted as a Mother. Kuan Yin oil is as gentle as the goddess, and includes the fabulously expensive true Lotus essential oil.

Kuan Yin is revered in both ancient Chinese Taoist traditions and in Buddhism. Buddhists consider her to be the female aspect of Avalokitesvara, who is the compassion of all of the Buddhas. There is some reason to believe that she is the evolution of a more ancient goddess, Queen Mother of the West, who predates even organized Taoism. Avalokitesvara means “Lord who looks down,” or “Lord who hears sound,” in other words, the aspect of Buddha who looks down and hears the cries and prayers of mortals. Kuan Yin is this Bodhisattva who hears and looks down with compassion. In one story she vows to delay Buddhahood until she frees all mortals from the rigors of reincarnation, until we all reach Enlightenment. For this she is given eleven heads to understand the needs and grief of the masses, and a thousand arms with which to comfort them.

In other legends, Kuan Yin accepts the karmic debt of her own executioner, which causes her to descend into hell. But because of her goodness and purity, the hell is transformed into a paradise, and the head demon evicts her from his realm! In this way, Kuan Yin is the greatest liberator of all the souls held in some state of condemnation.

Kuan Yin oil is a loving formulation which I potion on Mondays when the Moon is half way full.

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% jojoba oil, so with any care they should last a very long time. They are priced according to the ingredients requested by the gods."
