ToadstoolSpirit of Toadstool Oil
For some time I've been working on a series of magic oils intended to help in approaching the spirits of baneful plants through scent rather than ingestion of their alkaloids. I was inspired to begin that work with Toadstool because of a dream that featured them as points of connection between this world and the world of magic and spirit. I have always been drawn to the white-spotted red caps of the Toadstool and grew up seeing them featured in illustrations to fairy tales. They're often good representatives of the Underworld, partly because of their weirdly fleshy nature, partly because of their often very earthy scent, and partly because of the fact that they can be quite dangerously poisonous (not to mention their name Toad/Tod [death in German]). I built this oil around forest mushroom, evoking the damp earth with galbanum, vetiver, and baked earth. The surrounding forest appears as pine, cedar, the Underworld's favorite--cypress--and various fresh and dried berries and leaves, including clary sage, which not only provides a green, herbaceous scent but in its role as aide in divination echoes how Toadstool has been used by magic workers in some cultures. Use this oil for working with the Underworld, for assistance in divination, and for help in reaching out to this plant spirit through meditation, prayer, and vision. All natural and not toxic.
