Marie Laveau is one of the best known and loved figures in American occult history. A very powerful Voodoo Queen of New Orleans, she is seen variously as a deified ancestor, un-canonized saint, and Loa of Louisiana Voodo.

In life, Marie Laveau (September 10, 1801  - June 15, 1881) was a Free Woman of Color who began her career as a hairdresser and rapidly attained status as Voodoo Queen and de facto Queen of New Orleans with her public rituals, private magic workings, charity work with the poor, prison ministry and all-around entrepreneurial genius. All this while being an open and devout Catholic, Marie kept African diaspora traditions alive in the face of oppression of the antebellum South.

She is called upon by modern day devotees for all manner of petitions, and her tomb in St. Louis #1 is a tourist destination and spiritual mecca for pilgrims. Her oil does have one synthetic ingredient - gardenia fragrance, but is full of natural sweetness and magick that I believe she would find very pleasing.

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.
