Ancestor of Art, Elizabeth Barrial of Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab and Twilight Alchemy Lab, ritually crafted one of three limited edition perfume oils during The Ancestral Series election. Of it, she shares —
This is a cleansing blend used to purify, anoint, and consecrate tools and spaces used in ancestor veneration. It is a highly purifying blend; a few drops can be added to bathwater, and it can be used as an anointing on oil the body to cleanse and reset prior to communing with your fam.
In my personal ancestral practice, I utilize this blend to clean the altar space and ritual tools, before anointing candles for my ancestors using Phytognosis’ or Kaitlin’s The Ancestors oils, and I use Hermanubis incense, oils, and elixir to open the way.
