Nel mezzo del cammin di nostra vita mi ritrovai per una selva oscura, chí© la diritta via era smarrita.
In the middle of our life I found myself in a dark wood for the straight way had been lost. “The Inferno” – Dante Sometimes in the middle of our lives we find ourselves in the dark woods, either because we have wandered there by accident, or we’ve been looking for the path and once there, are not sure where to turn for guidance or protection. In October, the way into these woods is paved clean and the season summons us to turn within, engaging the shadow and exploring the Great Mysteries. They seem to almost unfold themselves before us now.
To assist you as you work the darker medicines, Arx has arrived just in time for October magic. Arx means fortress or protective structure in Latin. And that’s what this oil is. As you do your spiritual work, it’s important to ground, center, and protect yourself. Maintaining a strong soul architecture is critical. So I created a potion to accompany you as you explore the spirit realms, especially this month – October – when the veil between the worlds of the living and the dead is at its thinnest point. We can make contact with the other side. But we need the tools and wisdom in order to do that safely and protect the integrity of our own energetic vibration.
This unisex blend is made of pure, rare, and sacred ingredients. It contains Indonesian dragon’s blood, Myrrh oleoresin from Egypt, and Madagascar patchouli. It also contains a rare form of South American patchouli that I had imported just for this blend. I like to vary my oils across continents in order to blend the energies of different countries and cultures.
A magical blend of a total of 12 oils that will intoxicate and protect you, wrapping itself around you like a velvet cloak as you walk the dark forest of this season. All of my oils are designed for multipurpose use – as an anointing oil for candles, a perfume oil that you can apply directly to your skin, or an additive you can mix with coconut or jojoba oil to extend the supply. You will receive a bottle just like the one pictured; it contains the Arx oil along with two stones known to offer spiritual protection – tiger’s eye and obsidian. Each is decorated with hand-dyed silk sari ribbon. Because to me, love is in the details. Please allow for slight variation in color and texture as I choose the most beautiful silk to hand-wrap each oil bottle as it’s created.
I send blessings of wisdom, protection, and foresight as you explore the mysteries. Don’t go alone. Take Arx with you.
Note: This product is made with natural essential and carrier oils, and may contain fragrance oils. Cap color, chip stone, and sari silk may vary.
