Spiders are totems of The Center, Spirit, and the Akashic force. Spider spins the web that connects everything in the Universe, binding the four Elements and the Silver Cord of Fate and Destiny. Many Native peoples of North America call her Grandmother, an ancestral goddess who is mother to all species.

As a Weaver, the Spider is understood to be a symbol of the Creator of All. Spider manifests this concept of Infinity in a number of ways: first, the classic Spider’s web design contains a spiral, a symbol for Eternity which I use to symbolize Spirit in my Elemental oils and incenses. Then the eight legs and eight eyes make clear the magick number of Spider, 8, which on it’s side is the infinity symbol. The two parts of all Spiders, the cephalothorax and the abdomen, also form a figure 8 Doctrine of Signatures.

My Spider oil does contain a synthetic fragrance, the dark and smoky Danoul Oud, which smells like the nearly (commercially) extinct resin of the Oud tree, which becomes a perfume after ancient trees die and the sap is digested by a fungus. So you will have to forgive me the use of the synthetic. It smells dark and spooky, since most of us are born with primal fear of this great totem, Spider.

When I first formulated Spider, I wanted the insoluble Storax resinoid in it to settle out and form a pattern (web-like I hoped) on the back side of the jar. So I put the bottles on one of my top shelf lying on their sides, so all the resin strands would stick to the inside of the bottles. When I returned to inspect the next night, a Spider had built a web on the shelf, and the bottom strands were connected to the Spider oil bottles! Now that is the kind of market testing results I like to see for Natural Magick products!

Natural Magick Spirit Guide oils are made with reverence and research to be pleasing devotional blends for the animals or beings they are named for. I research legend and lore, and try to use oils of plants that represent the guide, what it does and what it smells like. The Natural Magick process of using planetary and elemental influences, correspondence, and high quality ingredients is especially appropriate for invoking the nature of your guide.

Spirit Guide oils are not made as fakey perfumes with marketable names. Fox really does smell wild and clever, Bear is somber and impressive, Angel is ethereal and bright, Dragon smells like smoke and scales.

Anoint yourself to attune to your totem, or pour into offering bowls or aromatherapy lamps, or anoint statues or fetish objects.

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 most resembling the guide so named."
