This oil was created to honor Baron Samedi. Baron Samedi stands at the crossroads between the worlds of the living and the dead and is the Lwa of healing and resurrection. Baron Samedi is one of the leaders of the Ghede, a nation of Lwa associated with magic, ancestor worship, and death. He is the husband of Maman Brigitte and is often syncretized with Saint Martin De Porres.
This is a deep, dark, masculine blend with a fougere (oak moss, lavender, and patchouli) base augmented by fresh lime, tobacco, black pepper, and leather. It is a unique and timeless men's cologne that begins dark, peppery, and mossy revealing phantoms of lime tobacco, and leather on the dry down.

Our ritual oils are a special line of perfume oils created to honor specific saints, deities, and goddesses. Each oil is created intuitively and references the qualities, affinities, and energy associated with the subject. The compositions are the same as our perfume oils so that they may be worn as perfumes by anyone who might also enjoy the unique fragrance profiles of these blends.
Ritual oils are created to help transform the everyday into the divine and magical. They can be used to anoint crystals, statues, altar tools, talismans, offerings, and candles. The aroma of each ritual oil is reverently and intuitively crafted to honor the subject that it was created for. These are complex and beautifully unusual blends which may be worn on the body as perfume in addition to their ritual uses.
Our ritual oils are presented in 5ml amber glass apothecary bottles with dropper caps and arrive beautifully gift boxed.
