Michael the Archangel Oil: Four Archangels Esoteric Series
N.B. Please note handling times for this esoteric oil series start at 10 business days.
This oil is part of my "Four Archangels" series of esoteric/biblical oils.
In the esoteric traditions to which this oil belongs, call on Michael for strength and for protection from enemies visible and invisible, terrestrial and aetherial. Here, he's associated with the South, Mars, and the element of Fire.
High-quality, hand-blended, and magically charged esoteric angel oils contain pure essential oils and natural herbs, resins, and minerals associated with each angel. These oils are made in accordance with esoteric, qabalistic, and biblical lore (so this is an "Archangel Michael" oil and not my hoodoo St. Michael oil - they are two different formulas, though they do essentially the same job). While these are not, strictly speaking, traditional conjure oils, they do not use herbal or mineral correspondences that conflict with those of traditional hoodoo, either, so you're not going to end up with an incoherent melange of eclecticism-gone-wild if you use this oil along with, say, a hoodoo oil for protection.
The ingredients have been prized for millenia in devotional usage as well as perfumery. These formulas are derived from the study of scripture, both canonical and apocryphal; extensive work with angels in Western hermetic traditions (I did all that fancy robe-wearing-and-initiation stuff for a couple of decades); a tremendous amount of research, significant chunks of it borne of my own translations and some of which has been published; and a lot of very expensive trial and error and testing with herbs, oils, resins, absolutes, and powders.
Unlike with conjure oils, few of the ingredients in my esoteric series are native to the region I grew up in, or indeed to this continent, and they must be imported. In some cases, the prices have skyrocketed over the last 10 years as essential oils have exploded in popularity, species have become threatened by overharvesting, and climate change has affected production.
So please understand that I cannot keep large quantities of some of these essential oils and absolutes on hand because they are incredibly expensive. That's why the handling time for this series starts at 10 business days. On the off chance that I get a few orders in back to back that exhaust my supplies of a pricier oil, I might be waiting on a new shipment from my supplier when your order comes in, for example. 10 business days should cover anything like that, but if it looks like there's a significant delay beyond the published 10 business day handling time, I'll email you.
USAGE: Oils are for prayer and ritual use; they are not cosmetics or perfumes. While some customers do use some dressing oils as anointing oils (which is not the same thing as wearing a perfume or cologne), they are careful to do a skin test first, since they know that all-natural does not equal hypoallergenic. If you need suggestions on how to use condition and anointing oils in the conjure tradition, see the Education link up top.
