The Cailleach is an old witch that lives in a cave in a haunted forest that she dug using just her fingernails. She is a spell wielding crone that is full of wisdom and ancient magick. She is the elder of the forest and she loves the coldest winter nights. Some call her the winter hag and say that she is responsible for the winter winds that are so cold they freeze your bones. She carries a staff made of willow which keeps her hidden from the world. She also carries a rattle filled with bones. If you are lucky enough to hear her rattle she is calling for you to make the journey to her cold and mystery filled forest to hear tales of the beautiful darkness that lives within you. When you leave her cave you will be forever changed. You will be wild and unapologetic about it. You will have sanctuary in the dark places that reside within and outside of you. You will go into the world and tell your story and inspire others to embrace their wild darkness.
I only make one batch of oil at a time and due to the intuitive nature of the process I don’t keep recipes or attempt to duplicate blends once they have sold out.
The oils that I create are made with plant absolutes, dried herbs, flowers, crystals, high quality essential oils, fragrances, natural resins and botanical oils. The oil is strained before the final bottling so no dried material or crystals remain in the blend that you will receive. Only the energy of these ingredients remain. The oils are blended into a soy and nut free base oil and arrive ready to use. No dilution is necessary.
These oils can be applied to the pulse points and worn as a perfume or cologne. They can also be used to anoint the body or ritual items before a ritual or ceremony. You can add them to your bath to create a sacred bathing ritual or you can add a few drops to a diffuser to add some magick to a room.
All of the oils that I create are cruelty free. When taking from nature I always ask for permission before taking something and I always leave an offering to thank the plant or stone for it’s medicine.
With Love, HagRoot
