Morrigan, Morrigu, or The Morrigan, is a Celtic goddess of the Raven and the battlefield. She is sometimes a triple goddess made up of herself Badb and Macha, or sometimes three separate goddesses who are collectively referred to as "The Morrigan." Cattle are her other sacred animals, and she is a goddess of sovereignty and fertility. Her legends as a battlefield deity result from her defense of her lands and people.

Cu Chulainn refused to lay down his sword in order to make love to her, not recognizing her or that she was offering him kingship and victory in battle. As a result, she caused him to lose the battle. To contrast, she offered her love to Dagda, and after the tryst she promised to tell him where his enemies (the Formorians) would be so he could conquer them for the Tuatha De Danaan.

Morrigan is also an prophetess, especially she has a power for predicting the death of warriors. She appears as a Washer at the Ford to Cu Chulainn, washing the blood from his armor, where he again fails to recognize her.

She is always active these days, retrieving the fallen soldiers souls from war-torn lands. Not a goddess for the foolish, selfish, or weak-willed. Her name means "Great Queen", "Phantom Queen" or "Nightmare Queen," depending on the etymologist, but really all are appropriate epithet. I make Morrigan oil on Saturdays on or before the Dark Moon.

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.
