Oil of Pluto
I know what you're saying--why make an oil for a planet that is not a planet anymore? Because folks are still working with this planet's influence, and because it has a lot to teach us. Pluto rules over death and resurrection and the sort of radical change in consciousness that is sometimes symbolized by those terms (ego-death, for instance). I started with the idea of earth, from which we come and to which we return, the representative of the Underworld and holder of the secrets Pluto can help us learn. Galbanum evokes the scent of freshly turned soil. I added some mosses and tree balsams to deepen the earthy and cold associations (because Pluto is cold), some opoponax, that rarer and more refined version of myrrh, to stand for the spiritual aspect of the Underworld, and cypress, the tree of choice for funerary objects because its durability represents immortality and resurrection. Storax, which to me always has both a spiciness and an outdoor, dark of night, coldness and dryness, gives the scent depth (punful reference intended), and the oil has a tinge of the smokiness of a room in which incense has just been burning. This oil was a challenge to create, but I think it came out well and will help greatly with your Pluto work.
