St. Dymphna Oil
This listing is for a half-ounce bottle of Saint Dymphna Oil, containing appropriate herbs and essential oils for honoring her and invoking her aid.
St. Dymphna is a very popular saint to call on against madness, anxiety, depression, and epilepsy. She's also the patron saint of runaways and survivors of incest and sexual abuse.
The martyrologies are chock full of murderous guys who like to kill totally peaceful Christians in very gruesome ways, but even with all the bloodshed and decapitation and suffering in these annals, St. Dymphna's father still manages to stand out as one of the biggest ass-hats of them all. When sources say St. Dymphna had a troubled home life that she fled, what they mean is that her widowed, grief-ravaged father decided the only person he could marry after his beloved wife died was his young teenage daughter. And when she said no and fled the country, he caught up with her and cut off her head.
So that's why she's invoked against madness, because she steadfastly faced the madness of her father, keeping her cool in the face of such onslaught, and was martyred in the preservation of her virginity, which she had dedicated to Christ.
Epileptics, the insane, and the possessed have been said to receive miraculous cures at Dymphna's tomb, and in older literature and art especially, she's portrayed as vanquishing a demon at her feet and is given the title of Demon Slayer. You can't tell it from modern holy cards these days, but Dymphna is kind of a badass. Don't let the demure hint of a smile on her placid face fool you. She's a strong ally to have on your side.
