Exu tridentOil for Exu
A while ago, a customer asked me to make oils and incenses for Exu and Pomba Gira. Although I was not very familiar with the latter (I had bought de Frisvold's book on her but hadn't read it yet), I felt some connection to Exu on account of a series of dreams I'd had some years ago. Exu as manfested in Kimbanda (Quimbanda) is found at the crossroads and is a trickster/teacher/master of magic. He demands much of his followers, in particular, self-knowledge and self-mastery (IOW, no bs allowed with him).The customer and I worked together to come up with possible ingredients for the oils and incense, and then I developed formulae based on this information, practice, and intuition. The magic oil for Exu took me the longest of all the four items. It took a number of versions and tinkering before I felt that I got it right. I began with a base of coffee and tobacco, both important for honoring this powerful spirit. I added the characteristic warmth connected with his Fire aspects in the form of black pepper, cinnamon, and cloves, and sweetened it with hone. A few more tweaks brought this oil together.
