BaphometBaphomet Oil
Eliphas Levi, whose drawing of Baphomet is shown here, intended this image to represent "the god of primitive Gnostic schools," a version of Pan. I think we can see, though, that this Pan is very different from that of the Greeks. Baphomet is like Hermes a magical teacher who unites in himself male and female, but Baphomet also unites the Four Elements and symbolizes the raw power or Prima Materia of magic itself. Where Hermes is typically connected to high, fast-vibrating smells like dill and lavender, this is a slower, smoother scent, in keeping with Baphomet's seated stance, and it is much more subtle than any scent I might craft for Pan. I tend to use lots of resinous scents in my oils, but this one is dominated by a warm muskiness with a bit a zing. The scent of lemongrass comes charging out at first and then settles down and hums along with the other ingredients, which work together to provide a slow, deep musk. You can smell sun-warmed fur, which is actually the scent of bees, not mammals; I use a propolis tincture in jojoba as the base. This scent combines well with the valerian, cumin and other musky herbs and is smoothed out with some nice ethically harvested white sandalwood. It is a steadying scent that yet allows awakening of the intellect--a good combination for magical work.
