Application too near day’s end may keep you bright eyed and bushy tailed into the wee morning… layer with other grounding, softening influences or apply them later to help “power down”…

When I use this solo it's usually for tech issues and it works great for me in those instances. I'll use it directly on my electronics (it is going to leave things oily so I use just a little bit). Otherwise I use this in conjunction with MiG a lot and really love that for all Mercury things. Ime this is a pretty easy go for any Mercurial needs, but I do have a well placed Mercury in my chart.

Brain booster

I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to finally write a review on Exalted Mercury considering that this materia has completely changed my life! I have Mercury in Virgo natally and it’s a pretty big deal in my chart considering that it’s the domicile lord of my ascendant ruler and was very slow and about to station retrograde at the time of my birth. It went retrograde in my secondary progressed chart when I was three and only stationed direct a year ago, the year I got into astrology and found S+S! I’ve struggled with communication skills my whole life (Mercury hidden in the 12th) and always felt like it was so difficult to accurately translate my thoughts into verbal communication. It always felt like my mind was moving faster than my mouth ever could and I would stumble over my words often, especially with my social anxiety. After working with this oil daily for over a half a year I can say that not only do I feel like my words flow more easily but my mind feels a lot sharper in general and can take in a lot more information at once. That’s saying a lot considering that I’ve also been wrestling with the cognitive effects of Long COVID. I’ve also felt inspired to start writing poetry lately and it’s been beautiful to witness my creative side flourish again. I gave my sister a decant of this oil last winter to help her prepare for finals and she aced them all! EM is 100% a magical vitamin for the mind.

Never, ever want to run out of this

I was nervous about Exalted Mercury materia because I have an afflicted natal Mercury, but once I tried it, I had no reason to worry. Like so many of us, I have ADHD and have struggled to get my prescriptions filled the last few years due to shortages, and I would not have made it through work last year without EM materia. I have the oil, the water, the tincture, and the body butter. The oil tends to be a longer, all-day focus (think extended release). I don't feel it working as instantaneously as the water or tincture, but it lasts so long I have to set alarms to remind myself to eat and also to shower it off at the end of the day, or I will keep working well into the night and go to bed waaaaaay too late.

Efficacity and productivity

I have bought this oil in a Mercurial profection year, and I have a Virgo Moon. I vibe so much with this item, it's a really great boost for all writings activities, getting the to-do-list checked, getting things done, etc. It gives great focus and pragmatism, whereas the Mercury in Gemini items can be a little more "go with the flow", dispersing, great for wandering, getting inspiration, being chatty. It's an excellent helper when the mind is foggy, when we lack the energy and motivation to "do the things", and what seems boring or bland can seem much more approachable in order to face it and do it. It has also been a great travel companion, since I kinda have anxiety in travel ! It can be a little to energizing though so I put it in the morning and avoid it in the evening.


Oils are often the most dynamic and powerful of materia offerings - and Exalted Mercury is no exception. I love Mercury-flavored things having my chart ruler in a Mercury-ruled sign and this is the elite materia for aiding in complex endeavors. The ultimate study aid. The best editor. The finest curator. I recommend regarding Exalted Mercury as the strongest caffeine - probably not best for nocturnal application if you would like a good night's sleep.

Virgo Profection Tool

I am currently in a Virgo profection year. At a friends recommendation, I started using this oil with intention and have been happy with the results. My writing has been more concise and on point. I am very pleased with the results.

Amazing for travel!

I often travel, sometimes even 17 hours in a day and this makes the time fly by!
Not only do I make great time while driving, but the time seems to vanish and I reach my distance in a much faster fashion than without it, although I do not travel without it now after it making such a Difference!


It is so awesome! It helps me to focus on something I really need to finish!

Go go go!

I have engaged with the Exalted Mercury Oil, only when I've really needed to clear my work inbox and projects. It grants that focus, and speed of communication, but its not exactly 'friendly' and more along the lines of communication of 'a spade is a spade'. However, every single time that I've used it has led to me coming home and absolutely crashing. It just burns through my energy reserves. Even when paired with DA, the tendency is to DO! Do all the Things! Have 10 conversations at the same time! Process everything immediately! Do!

Huge Fan

I'm a huge fan of this oil. I use it for occasions when I know I will be dealing with a lot of people and need my mind to be clear and sharp. It helps me deal with any problems I may run into in these situations by making my thinking quicker, more "effective" and eloquent.


  1. Makes me feel bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. Gives a boost of energized focus that works very well with analytical tasks and acts of focused “doing”, like doing a full-house floor wash to expel negative energies. A steadier feeling than the tincture (which, for me, feels fast-acting and more “up”) and has greater staying power. Is especially helpful to combat the kind of procrastination that come from perfectionism and fear of failure. Warning: my sugar cravings go through the roof when I use this.

  2. One of my favorite offerings. It smells fantastic and gives me a great boost when I need to get things done. I put a bit on before doing any kind of Mercurial things, like studying, crunching numbers, etc and it definitely gets me in a get-things-done kind of mindset.

  3. Every time I use this oil I get mentally alert, focused and very productive. It is truly magical!

  4. I love to use this oil before I call my clients. I work in Advertising Sales and this oil is my jam, helps me tackle meetings, consultations as well as the 50+ communications I make daily. Thank you for this fantastic blessing!

  5. This is a fantastic offering for focused work especially analytic in nature. It’s very potent and so I’ve used it to dress candles for times of demanding intellectual or analytical work. Provides a substantial thinking or focusing effect with a lot of energy.

  6. This oil gets stuff DONE. The oil itself is light and fresh ( I love the scent) but once applied, it zings with electricity, speeding up my mental processes and making interacting with other people much smoother and easier. It cuts through procrastination and helps me move effortlessly through long to do lists.
    It’s also great for getting around in my car. Whenever I’m driving and I have some of this on, it’s green lights all the way and intuitive knowing of how the other cars around me are going to react before they do.

  7. Exalted Mercury is my “Clear Eyes, Full Heart, Can’t Lose” oil…or more specifically, it’s been my “Clear Eyes, Calm Mind, Can Absolutely Focus” oil.

    EM has reliably turned down the volume on the anxious mental static that can keep me (uncomfortably) spinning my wheels. It creates mental space that feels protected and supportive for focus, productivity, analytic thinking, and problem-solving.

    So far, I haven’t had any issues with feeling overstimulated when using it.

    It’s been an exceptionally helpful and unmatched experience. Profound gratitude to Mercury and Kaitlin & Co!

  8. It’s been a week since I have been applying this oil. As a Virgo sun ( tropical) I had a bit of a crisis – I mean this one does not fool around with the ego checks lol. But it gave me the clarity I needed about myself and my work- allowing me to detach my self worth from the work at hand. I am a full time researcher and was struggling with perfectionism and procrastination around getting my research papers done. I am happy to report that I have found my focus back. I feel grounded and ready to go at the beginning of every day. I am a fan of S+ materia now !

  9. I apply this Mercury exalted oil whenever I need to do stuff on my to do list that I don’t feel like doing. It helps me to get into the ‘go’ vibe and check things off the to do list. Especially tasks that are Mercurial, like communications or finances. It’s of great help!!! Thank you Mercury and Kaitlin!

  10. I love this series, it absolutely adds to my adeptness while providing astrology readings for my clients. Instant insights and communication streams happen every time. I don’t find it as stimulating and amazing as the prior Virgo series (Mercury Cazimi) but it’s noticeably effective, even for me as some one with Mercury in Virgo in my nativity. I enjoy combining it with Mars materia, Saturn materia, and Hermanubis series, too.

  11. I waited so long for another Mercury in Virgo series and the exalted Hermes does not disappoint! Its my go to when my writing needs a little boost of clarity.

  12. This is one of my absolutely favorite oils for getting things done. I do think that it tends to send me into overdrive, and I love using a JiP materia to cool down 🙂

  13. Exalted Mercury, how do I love thee ways…
    You’ve cleared out my closet clutter, made me remember to check things off my ever long to do list. You’ve made my communications more fun and buoyant. I still can’t believe how bountiful and powerful you are in your organization of my life, and all with little effort, and dare I say joy! Thank you Mercury, and thank you Kaitlin and Co. you literally saved my life from the chore-ness of chores, from the gloom of clutter, and filled it with light and focused energy with this exalted Mercury. Worn two Wednesdays in a row, and immediately felt, what a blessing! Thank you!

  14. Exalted Mercury is like coffee without the caffeine jitters or crash and burn. It simply allows you to focus on what needs to get done without the weight of the to-do list on your shoulders. Before you know it, things are done and you don’t know how. They just are. Most definitely one of my favorites.

  15. An incredible work aid, supporter of focus and surprisingly, so far, with very little side effects. Occasionally challenged by mercury uncovering other pressing things lower on the list and that becoming a priority, but what needs to get done will in fact get done!

  16. I was invited last minute to be a vendor at a holiday art market a few weeks ago and I thought I’d give Exalted Mercury a whirl. For me, this oil is light and fun! I was chatty and had some great conversations, my energy remained steady throughout the weekend and it was the most successful show I’ve had to date. Thank you!!

  17. For whatever reason, I was hesitant to try EM – I’m a Gemini rising, and the thought of adding *more* Mercury to that felt exorbitant and unnecessary – but I divined on it and received guidance to try it. I am *so* glad I did! I’m in my Saturn return right now, and have felt completely crushed by the weight of Saturn – I’m so stuck analyzing all of the options, putting so much pressure on myself to make the right decisions, etc. This analysis paralysis was also part of the reason that I was hesitant to add more Mercury – it felt like adding fuel to the fire, but it did just the opposite. Immediately after I applied it, I felt so flexible and free in a way that I haven’t felt…probably since Saturn entered Capricorn (with basically every planet, save Jupiter and Pluto, in either Capricorn or Aquarius in my chart). It definitely does have a “get shit done” vibe, but for me personally, it’s not as much about the *energy* to get shit done as removing the mental blocks that prevent me from doing small tasks that feel insurmountable for whatever reason. For example, taking things to the post office, taking things for dry cleaning – those little things that don’t take long, but for some reason feel impossible, so you let them sit for weeks because you can’t find the motivation to do them. Basically, I love EM, it might be my favorite series so far, and it has been a huge help in removing mental blocks and honestly given me an entirely new understanding of what “way opening” really means.


    Let Hermes untangle the most twisted, mind-bending dilemmas of the human domain–and watch how their genius will delight and surprise you.


    Upon using Exalted Mercury, I kept hearing, “I’m bored. I’m sooooo bored.” With my Gemini Mars and fire stellium (and mercury-conjunct-northnode!), I thought EM will make me SPEEDIER. Nope.

    Used with Daddy Deneb Algedi II, I found good deals and bargains, but couponing isn’t my ambition. I got nothing done with EM and was a bit disappointed.

    Then I got the message: “Why use me, Hermes “the brain,” to “power through” tasks, when you can get grit, focus, discipline from Mars & Saturn?”

    Ding ding ding! Hermes likes games, tricks, a “new” way of doing things. This reminds me of Magicians– cards, sleight of hands, illusions. Rubix cubes. Got a mind-bending problem? Secrets to hide? Weird, unsolvable mysteries? Offer it to Hermes and xe’ll make ‘em vanish before your very eyes.

    PS: I’m developing our new relationship, which is: please solve my problems in a way that makes me laugh. As boring as it sounds, I want Hermes to help me find the most deductibles and money on my taxes. Then fix this painful, immovable bureaucratic problem I have for decades. I’m just gonna throw the most impossible tasks at xim, lol. I know Hermes will find a way, and it shall be cunning.

    Work smarter, not harder!

  19. This may just be my favorite S+ product this season, I call it ‘Virtual Assistant.’ And with a closely applying Sun Merc conj in a fixed air sign I need all the assistance I can get to dial down the internal chatter. A few swipes of the wrists and a prayer to make headway on my list and I’m good to go (for hours.) So much so sometimes I need a little Cloud Kingdom to help me take my foot off the gas.

  20. Um, wow. So, I was not at all sure how this materia was going to go for me. Virgo is my 12th house, so I’ve been forever watching astro ppl post about how Virgo transits help them get all their stuff in order, meanwhile the second the moon moves into Virgo I’m fighting the urge to crawl into bed and simply daydream for hours.

    I took a chance and met Exalted Mercury. I lit a candle, I read the hymn aloud (interrupted once by my kitchen timer, which I can’t explain why but it felt like a trickster sort of wink). I brewed some steep + smoke, I anointed my wrists and ankles with oil.

    And then — for the first time in recent memory — I checked everything off of my to-do list for the day. *Everything.* It was all little maintenance type tasks I’d been putting off, and I did them all and then some. Easily, with neither panicked rush nor procrastination. I’m also feeling, really for the first time… hmm, pulled, or drawn to connect with Mercury Themself.

    Also, the oil smells *amazing*.

  21. Upon receiving it from the mailman, I felt an incredible surge of hyper focus hit me. Didn’t take much! I applied the oil onto my wrist and the back of neck. The scent is absolutely pleasant! I’m really quite in love with this whole collection! After application, I felt like I was bouncing off the walls and honed into hyper-productivity mode. To really hone in my line of vision, so as to to not fall into other rabbit holes and keep focus on the tasks at hand, I supplemented this with Mars in Scorpio or Exalted Sun materia. I work full-time and attend school full-time so I’ll take what I can get to keep my focus! My job consists of working with spreadsheets all day and I can attest that the materia from this collection provides the necessary focus to tend to both mundane and fairly cerebral tasks at hand!

  22. Hello, just here to report that I purchased this based off of my desire for the effects, and did not note the scents involved, which are all of my absolute favorites. My last purchase (Saturnian King) I can’t even wear because the smell turns my stomach! This smells so, so good.
