Hel is the Norse woman of death and the keeper of the Underworld. Hel determines the fate of every soul in the afterlife.
She is the daughter of Loki and the giantess Angrboda and the sister of the wolf, Fenrir and the world serpent, Jormungand. Hel governs the world beyond that of the living and thins the veil between the worlds.
She is depicted as being half alive and half dead. She has long hair on her living side and wears a long dark robe.
I like to use this oil when journeying to the underworld, doing shadowwork and during the dark moon.
Hel is an beautifully dark blend of patchouli, smoked woods, frankincense tears, amber and a haunting sweetness.
