Norse patron god, creator of the runes, Odin hung himself upside down from the World Tree and blinded himself in one eye to be able to see both within as well as without. By such sacrifice and repose he gained the wisdom of the runes.

Odin rules Asgard, the world of the Norse gods. He is a very complex deity, associated variously with horses, war, poetry, death, wisdom, prophesy, and travel, to mention a few. There is much scholarly and not-so-scholarly theorizing about his origins. It is almost certain that a number of proto-Christian deities contributed to the modern day understanding of the mysteries of Odin.

The worship of Odin is still very much alive. Modern Norse and Germanic neopagans keep the Asatru, faith in the Aesir.

My oil dedicated to Odin is very manly and makes a wonderful men's fragrance. It smells of deep woods, pine and has some mysterious notes of course. He is corresponded to Mercury, so I make Odin on the Wednesday Waning Moon when the moon is half obscured, to honor both his outward seeing and inward seeing powers.

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.
