Magic Oil - Foreign Devil / SetForeign Devil Oil (Oil for Set)
Set is a very old Egyptian storm/desert god once linked to Horus the Elder and popularized by the foreign Hyksos dynasty. After that dynasty fell, Set was morphed into an evil god by the Egyptians and thence conflated with Satan by the Christian church. In this oil, which Harold developed, Set's association with the desert is signified by using some warm scents, like clove, coriander, and cardamom. Mercurial scents like lavender absolute, elemi, and hazelnut stand for his trickster aspect, his role as guide to the dead, and his association with foreigners and with international trade. The Martial scents of opoponax and ginger represent that this storm god manifested himself through earthquakes, eclipses, and other violent natural events but also killed the evil serpent Apep (and so has protective qualities). And finally there is some frankincense, since according to mythology, Set took out Re's eye, and Re was worshipped at the temple of Edfu with noontime incense sacrifices of frankincense. This oil is useful not only in honoring Set and other opposers but in storm magic, learning magical skills, and developing one's will.
