Orpheus oil is dedicated to my friend and long-term customer, Phil Freeman, who convinced me to create this oil. Orpheus is what you might call a semi-divine figure of Greek history, perhaps a deified ancestor. Poet, lyricist, musician, singer, he inspires every musician and performer.
" Oshun, or Ochun, is the African, Haitian and Voudou orisha of fresh waters. She is both a goddess of love and beauty, and a patroness of trade. Oshun originates with the Yoruban mythology of Nigeria. She is also worshiped in Brazil as Oxum.

Oshun is beautiful river goddess with many lovers, although she is married to Orula. She enjoys mirrors and all feminine arts of beauty and perfumery, honey and sweet foods and peacock feathers. It is easy to associate her with the Greek goddess Aphrodite, but her sacred day of the week is Saturday, so I make this oil dedicated to Oshun on Saturdays just before the Full Moon. It smells sweet, fruity and spicy, and this oil does contain some synthetic Frangipani fragrance oil in it. Since she is such a loving and sexy goddess, Oshun oil makes a delicious women's personal perfume. Anoint a yellow candle, since Oshun’s color is yellow, and burn it in front of a mirror to make an altar to this harmonious goddess of beauty, love and abundance.

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.
