Beloved Dead

$41.00

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 —

Before us great Death stands
Our fate held close within his quiet hands.
When with proud joy we lift Life’s red wine
To drink deep of the mystic shining cup
And ecstasy through all our being leaps—
Death bows his head and weeps.
– Rainer Maria Rilke

This oil has a twofold purpose: easing the transition of the dead and soothing the grief of the living. This oil can be used in ancestral work to honor the beloved dead, ease the anguish of restless spirits, help the newly dead transition, and help heal ancestral trauma. It is an oil of remembrance – of venerating the lives and accomplishments of our forebearers, of recognizing their tribulations and triumphs, and for honoring the foundation they have created for us and all that they have given us. This oil has also been crafted to help bring peace to the grieving: it is a balm for the heart that strengthens us during mourning, soothing the wracking pains of heartache and loss so that we may remember our loved ones without sorrow.

(Please note: though this is a potent ritual blend, it is no replacement for therapy!)

Three frankincense essential oils (two Boswellia carteri and one Boswellia serrata), wild crafted organic vetiver essential oil (Vetiveria zizanoides), Tunisian rosemary essential oil (Rosmarinus officinalis), honey absolute (Apis mellifera), rose absolute (Rosa centifolia), steam-distilled Peruvian palo santo essential oil (Bursera graveolens), and single-origin olive oil.

    Bereavement always strikes you in ways you wouldn’t expect. In my case I am mourning the passing of a mentor whose courage and intellect had a profound impact not only on my life and my work, but also on a great number of other people. I cannot conceive of asking his spirit for any favors from beyond the veil, as he had already done so much for me during his lifetime. Neither would I ever treat his noble spirit as a bee to be smoked, to quote a Sphere and Sundry metaphor. I have, however, found the Beloved Dead scent a very appropriate way in which to add a touch of sombre beauty to these days I am spending in contemplation of his life path and the lessons it had taught me. The atmosphere lifts when I add this oil to the lights I set in my mentor’s honor and I sincerely hope it will ease his transition to his next incarnation, should there be one.
