Nicnevin is a Scottish/Gaelic Queene of Elfame, a Faerie Queene. Because she is associated with night Rades on Samhaine (Halloween), she is identified with the Unseelie Court of Faeries, the wild, untamed "bad" Faeries.
" Obatala is said to be the eldest among the Orishas, and creator of the Earth and human bodies. He is depicted in spotless white robes, and is said to be the King of White Cloth. The white color indicates purity, but in a different sense than dualistic Western right/wrong morality. The purity of Obatala is more like a sense of clarity, the ability to discern between all paths, towards the truest manifestation of ones Self.

Until you are initiated into the priesthood of a particular Orisha, it is said that your soul or "head" belongs to Obatala. The color white contains all possibilities and Paths. Obatala is patron deity of all humans who have handicaps, since he made them that way while drunk on palm wine. He never touches alcohol anymore, and dedicates himself to the protection of differently abled people and those born with birth defects.

Use Obatala oil to honor the king of White Cloth, and to work towards purity and clarity. My formula for Obatala does contain one synthetic oil, Coconut, since the mild White flesh of fresh coconut is one of his favorite food offerings. It also contains the very precious real Sandalwood essential oil, which communicates the spiritual peace and gentlenes of the King of the Orishas.

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.
