Persephone is the Greek goddess of Spring and the Underworld, Queen of the Dead and all chthonic mysteries. She also brings the knowledge of hidden realms to the surface world. As her bright self, she is daughter to the agricultural goddess Demeter, and her darker self is wife to Hades, King of the Underworld.

The myth by which Persephone is known best establishes the cycles of the seasons. When Persephone is carried away into the Underworld by Hades, Demeter’s grief over the loss of her daughter causes the first winter on Earth. From Persephone’s point of view we can see a young woman making her personality distinction from her very powerful mother. In the Underworld she comes of age to become Queen of her own realm. Eventually, the gods involved strike a bargain. Persephone emerges from the realm of the Dead, bringing Spring with the joy of her reunion with Demeter. In the dark months of winter she rules with her King. This oil devoted to Demeter does have synthetic fragrances in it. I attempt to pay tribute to both aspects of the goddess of Spring and the Dead.

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.
