Shapeshifter OilShapeshifter Oil
This magic oil pays homage to the shapeshifter, who walks the borders between the wild and the so-called civilized world and isn't afraid to make drastic changes. Three of its ingredients represent the wild woods--silver fir, vetiver root, and oakmoss. Three stand for animal muskiness--patchouli, ambrette seed, and mitti (an ancient distillation of baked earth into white sandalwood oil). Silver fir is Ailim in the Ogham, the Druid alphabet. The silver fir grows on the highest, wildest parts of the hills, and so stands for clear vision. Because it is flexible, it also is the tree most associated with shapeshifting. Vetiver is an Earth herb that reaches deep into the soil to distill the incredible fragrance of the forest floor--wet leaves. Oakmoss is both mossy and musky; this Earth herb is connected to death/birth and thus fits well with shapeshifting, where one crosses the cusp dividing two states of being. Patchouli is another favorite Earth scent that is strongly aphrodisiac, helping us get in touch with our physical selves; it is often an ingredient in vegetable musks. Ambrette (musk) seed is an expensive Earth herb that is one of the best vegetable musks. Mitti adds depth to the muskiness and a strong connection to the earth. All of these herbs are combined in pure olive oil to make a scent that is woodsy, mossy, and musky--very warm and furry. Because the musk scents in this oil are all vegetable based and non-synthetic, you can enjoy it guilt-free and worry-free. Magickally, this oil is good for keeping all four paws on the ground in chaotic times and is generally nice for grounding. I created this oil to honor something in shapeshifters I very much admire--the recognition and treasuring of our commonality with the rest of the animal world and the magnitude of the animal spirit. Some people are sensitive to oakmoss. Shake gently before using. Top
