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. We love this image, the way it combines 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 mystery. In a way, we hope they never discover who this "really" is. We prefer to think of her as simply the Queen of the Night and have crafted this special oil to honor her inscrutable spirit. This oil begins with several night-blooming flowers, including jasmine sambac, tobacco, and tuberose. These fragrant absolutes are combined in a base of fractionated coconut oil that has been infused with datura seeds (since datura is highly poisonous we just use a few) and orris root, aka Queen Elizabeth root. We then add divinatory clary sage, green and damp violet leaf, and a few others to end up with an oil that evokes a lush, mysterious encounter with the spirit of the Queen of the Night. Use it for honoring feminine spirits of the night and of the Underworld.
