Queen of the NightQueen of the Night Oil
We don't really know who she is. She might be Lilith, or Inanna, or Ishtar, or Ereshkigal. We do know that this image is about 4000 years old and came from the area of what is now Iraq. I've always loved this image, so much combining the very human in the shaping of the face and torso and the very non-human in the claws, wings, and lack of details. It's almost the quintessence of mysterious. In a way, I hope they never discover who this "really" is. I think of her as simply the Queen of the Night. That's why when I came across an absolute made from the Queen of the Night flower, Cestrum nocturnum, I knew I had the basis for a magic oil proper for honoring this spirit. I combined it with divinatory clary sage, green and damp violet leaf, orris root aka Queen Elizabeth root, and more to end up with an oil that evokes encountering the scent of the Queen of the Night flower out in a night grove. Use it for honoring feminine spirits of the night and of the Underworld.
