The Jagged Path
Gruss Vom Krampus anointing oil
Everyone knows Santa Claus, the saintly figure who represents the lighter side of the holiday. However, do you know of his devilish companion, Krampus?
The legend of Krampus derives from a centuries-old holiday tradition in Germany. Krampus was created as a sinister counterpart to the kindly St. Nicholas, who rewarded children with sweets & toys.
Krampus also has origins in pagan celebrations. He name is derived from an old Germanic word for “claw,” & he is said to be the son of Hel, who rules the realm of the dead in Norse mythology.
Bearing long horns and a goaty beard, the so-called ‘Christmas Devil’ travels the land with Santa & punishes naughty children. Krampus is traditionally armed with chains and a bundle of birch branches to swat the bottoms of children on the ‘naughty list’. It is customary for poor Krampus to fall under attack by those who don’t find a wrathful demon appropriate for children.
The fiendish holiday icon appears on the eve of Dec. 6, known as Krampus Night. The following morning children check shoes they left out to see if they have received presents or a rod for their parents to discipline them with.
Use this oil, created with curated materia meant to provide protection against being dragged away by Krampus, to anoint yourself, and don't become one of Krampus' victims!
Use to anoint any offering or tools of your craft, your alter, and any other working space or materia that feels right to you.
