HermesOil for Hermes
In addition to the Hermes' Favor oil, which is really a luck oil, I was asked to make a devotional oil for Hermes. I was happy to do so, since he is one of my most loved deities. Saffron was the herb of choice for honoring Hermes in ancient Greece, perhaps because it grows in meadows where the herds he also watched over grazed. But the story is that the saffron crocus grew from the drops of blood of Krokos, a mortal young man whom Hermes loved and whom he accidentally killed while playing discus. Finding herbs that go with saffron and that would fit this deity was not easy. I chose fruity but hot pink pepper, warming turmeric, spicy ginger, cardamom, allspice, and more. The result is a rich and pleasantly warm oil that honors him and that can be made part of rituals asking Hermes to guide the souls of the dead. It can also be used to honor a lost beloved.
