With this set, we honor Persephone and Demeter. We will invoke these two influential deities as we book passage to the Underworld of the Greek pantheon. Come along, it’s going to be a wonderful ride.
Our main kit honors Persephone, the goddess of the Underworld and Spring, is a symbol of joy, freedom, life, and every flourishing seed. She is also the matriarch of integration and a powerful role model of what it means to embody your full self, light and shadow united. While Persephone is known as Queen of the Underworld, there was a time prior to her abduction, and that time is relived every year when she emerges from the Underworld, and basks in the season of returning light. Just as Persephone emerges from the darkness and dances in the light, so do we. When she returns to Hades, we acknowledge autumn and harvest; the growth ebbing, dying off, and returning into the Earth.
Demeter, Greek Goddess of the harvest, is perhaps best known as mother to Persephone – the maiden who journeyed to the Underworld after eating the pomegranate seeds. Her journey divided the year into seasons, because Demeter’s grief over the loss of her daughter to Hades caused her to cast a spell of cold and barrenness upon the Earth. Such is the love of a mother for her daughter. Such is the love we should all know from our own mothers; and such is the love we should all hold for ourselves and each other. Demeter, the goddess who searched the world for her beloved daughter, truly embodied the unconditional bond between mother and child.
The tools in my Ritual Sets Honoring Persephone and Demeter
With this offering, you can choose to purchase the Persephone and Demeter set together, or you can choose to purchase either one individually. Order your tools as you feel called, but keep in mind that these two are an energetic pairing and their energy is meant to be worked with in unison.
My Persephone set comes with a Persephone pillar candle, made with sheets of beeswax in sensual pomegranate and lavender shades to conjure the goddess of the Underworld. Your candle will also come with a custom blessing you can recite to invoke her duality of Spring and the Underworld.
Then you will receive my Descend perfume with notes of pomegranate, patchouli, and earth. A juicy, but grounding blend that is as ancient as it is magical. Each bottle comes with a garnet chip stone to further amplify its properties.
You will next receive the Herbs of Persephone which include pomegranate seeds, violet, and willow bark. Violet was grown by Earth at Hades’ request to ensnare Persephone. We burn this herb to represent the temptations and consequences present in every lifetime. Homer recounted a sacred grove of willow trees near the entrance of Hades where Persephone was abducted by Hades. And finally, we include pomegranate because it is the fruit of temptation and the Underworld, and for eternity she returns to Hades for 6 months of the year.
Lastly, the Persephone stone set includes agate, and hessonite garnet to to attract wealth, protection, and passion.
My Demeter set comes with a Demeter pillar candle, made with sheets of beeswax in green and natural shades to conjure the goddess of harvest. Your candle will also come with a custom blessing you can recite to invoke her unconditional love.
Then you will receive my Return perfume, a floral, citrusy, and warm blend of bergamot, basil, and geranium. Each bottle comes infused with a peridot chip stone to further amplify its properties.
You will next receive the herbs of Demeter, which include chasteberry, wheat, and vervain. Chasteberry is used to honor Demeter and Hera, and for fertility. They represent gratitude for the abundance we experience from this year’s harvest. Vervain is widely used to honor the supportive nurturing quality of the sacred feminine. This herb is used to honor Demeter’s loss and sorrow when her daughter Persephone was stolen from her by Hades. And finally wheat, associated with Demeter and her gift of grain and subsistence agriculture.
Lastly the Demeter stone set includes cat’s eye and dark amber to promote new beginnings, healing, and protection.
Hecate bonus set:
If you purchase both sets, you will also receive a bonus Hecate set. Hecate is the Greek goddess of magic, night, and the moon. Hecate is the goddess who embodies the last phase of the harvest season – a time to take stock of what did not blossom, to reflect on what withered away. Hecate blazed the night with torches, guiding Demeter in search of Persephone, her daughter.
My Hecate bonus set comes with a Hecate candle, made with sheets of beeswax in black and wine, to remind you of the luminous goddess. Your candle will also come with a custom blessing you can recite to invoke her guidance.
I am also offering Limina perfume, made with notes of fresh rose and a deep resinous amber, infused with an iolite chip stone. It is sure to keep you feeling grounded and connected. Anoint yourself and your tools with this blend as you do your divination work.
