This ritual oil is made from Spagyrically refined and opened Frankincense+Myrrh resin, infused into Organic extra virgin olive oil in a long, slow process.
Created under a dual rulership of Sun+Saturn, the Myrrh aspect is supportive to workings with Karma or fate. It aids in accepting the “bitter truth” with grace and insight, helping you to learn from your difficulties and not need to repeat them, especially calling on the Frankincense connection to the Divine for wisdom in walking that path.
Myrrh is grounding and solidifying, in some ways the opposite of the levity of Frankincense, but meditating on the breath as it rises and falls and the scents waft in and out of you is a useful practice to link higher and lower together and draw on the gifts of both.
Note that this ritual oil does not contain isolated essential oils, and so it is much less assertive than other oils or perfumes. Many people who find essential oil-based scents harsh and irritating are able to use our infused oils, and they hold closer to the body and are more personal to the wearer alone. We find this makes them perfect companions for magical work, in which the practitioner seeks “to know, to dare, to will, and to keep silent”.
For any of these practices, an even more focused sphere of influence can be created by also taking some of our resin Spagyrics, such as our Frankincense Magistery, our Myrrh Spiritualized Essence, or our Gold, Frankincense & Myrrh Somalixir.
