HEL-(Patchouli, Smoked Woods, Frankincense Tears, Amber, Haunting Sweetness)-Perfume, Cologne, Anointing, Ritual Oil
(Patchouli, Smoked Woods, Frankincense Tears, Amber, Haunting Sweetness)
Hel is the Norse goddess 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 a skeleton or half alive and half dead. She has long hair on her living side and wears a long dark robe. She asks that we accept death for what it is and not try to hide from it.
Hel is an intriguingly dark blend of patchouli, smoked woods, frankincense tears, amber and a haunting sweetness.
When I'm creating oils, I listen to the story, the deity, the purpose and the healing that wants to come through. I then tap into and dance with the spirits of the plants and the stones that want to be used. I take into consideration the season and the phase of the moon as well.
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
