Hod Oil (Mercury), Hermetic Qabalah Style
In the Hermetic Qabalah, Hod is called Splendor and is associated with the planetary energies of Mercury. It is represented by the gods Thoth and Anubis (historically, these two are sometimes conflated), Hermes, Odin, and the Roman god Mercury. In the Tarot, Hod is manifested in the four eights. Its colors are violet and russet, its stone the opal, its chakrah the navel. In keeping with the usual associations of Mercury energy, this sephirah is connected with works of communication, logic, intelligence, and generally the use of the mind. Its perfumes are storax and hemp, so I have made this magick oil from the finest Oriental storax and hemp oil. It is a good choice for meditating on the sephirah of Hod and for the learning of magical skills. As one might expect for a Mercury scent, it is fleeting.
