The Jagged Path
Praecantatrix Belladonna & Datura Oil
Belladonna and Datura; could there be a more seductive blend?
This oleum will help to thin the liminal space, the time, between what was and what's next.
Belladonna--it was said that in the forests where this beautiful plant was grown, passengers could see a beautiful lady with long black shining hair and big dark eyes appear when the moon grew smaller and dark in its waning phase.
Legend says that practitioners paid tributes to the plant, for the dark lady to appear and teach them the secrets of magic.
Belladonna has a clear link to Hecate, and is a key constitute in any Garden of Hecate; for this reason, each bottle of my Praecantatrix Oleum has been imbued with fragments of the wondrous Belladonna. Is in any wonder that Belladonna has been associated with beauty, seduction and magic?
Datura--said to be Belladonna's seductive sister, Datura is truly a remarkable, trans-formative ally; her thorny, prickly seed pod is discovered only after her beautiful, romantic, enchantingly smelling blossoms have closed back in on herself and succumbed to eternal darkness, in an effort to assure that her family continues to bloom.
Those who discover Datura, will certainly experience her reverence and awe.
Datura has long been connected to shape-shifting, particularly into a seductive, bird form. The well known tingling sensation felt after applying datura oil/ointment, or after the use of tincture, is commonly likened to the sensation of sprouting feathers.
Imagine a beautiful black raven, using the seductiveness of their song to beguile the object of their affection.
Poplar buds have historically been used for spiritual and emotional comfort, healing, conflict resolution, inspiration, manifestation, consecration, and for easing the path in connecting to spirit.
This blend contains both Belladonna and Datura, infused into organic sunflower oil, with the addition of wild sourced poplar bud oil.
The plant materials in this oil have been grown, harvested, dried, and prepared by me, under the most beneficial phase of the moon.
Each bottle of anointing oil will be placed upon my altar, prayed over, and set with positive intention and energy before ever leaving my hands.
