Oil of Hermanubis II
$53.00 – $103.00
In the pre-dawn hour of Mercury during Mercury’s Eclipse of Sol on 11:11:2019, 100% extra virgin olive oil was poured over ritually harvested cemetery ivy, fallen autumn leaves, poppy, hops, barley, and sundry herbs of a Mercurial and Necromantic nature. Activated charcoal, dried mushrooms, and 24k gold.
Apply to the self to make communion with the Dead easier, before channeling, séances, and Ancestral work. Apply to the heart and third eye as a meditative aid to excavate death gnosis from your immortal soul, beyond the confines of singular incarnate experience, and generate comfort with one’s own mortality.
Anoint Ancestral altars, glassware, or vessels used to make offerings to the Dead, to draw their attention and stoke their appetites. Use to dress candles for Necromantic operations or apply to other icons employed as intermediaries between yourself and the deceased, including photos, urns, and other memorabilia. Request Hermanubis support such individuals in navigating their landscape and experience, and help guide them where would be most productive, in addition to delivering messages to and from.
Available in your selection of the standard 1/2 oz glass vial (w/ optional Dropper Cap Kit) for $66, a roller with snowflake obsidian rollerball for $53, or very few 24k gold plated rollers for (brace yourself) $103.

I was intimidated to use this and I'm typically a pretty courageous witch, but I shouldn't have been so nervous. I have actually really enjoyed working with this and oddly **adore** the scent which I did not expect at all. The oil feels really really thick, almost viscous, and a little goes a long way. This is one that I enjoy anointing my feet with, in addition to my pulse points and heart center. I have used this to connect with beloved dead with much success. I do highly recommend smoke bathing with something really supportive after working with it and I also recommend keeping it wrapped up in a dedicated space as that really helps direct and preserve the charge.
Whenever I work with this oil, it gives me the sensation of the dead being more solid… more concretely felt. It changes my typical sensation of the dead from an energetic awareness to a very visceral presence.
I was initially a bit intimidated by this series but decided to take the leap when I saw that the Ancestral series sold out. With protections and precautions taken, this oil is profoundly elevating my ancestral veneration practice. Moving beyond just honoring to learning the unique language of my ancestors, honing mediumship and automatic writing abilities... this is powerful stuff.
Hermanubis II oil served as a powerful initiate into my ancestral veneration practice. What felt intimidating initially became a profound and enlightening experience. A little goes a long way. Paired with ancestor Comfort series and that seemed to be effective in a perfectly softening way. A really intriguing energy to work with.
I had a huge moth showing up inside my place when I first tried Hermanubis II oil . Then again second time in a few days when I was considering using this oil but was resisting because first encounter was a little too strong and I ended up being scared. Anyway, I was thinking that it's Wednesday and I probably should have another encounter with Hermanubis but was not sure, then the huge moth flies in and hits me in my left ear. I felt so shocked, I mean, being hit like that by a moth in my kitchen? Really?!! Then I thought this just could not be true. I went to look for the moth and found it happily sitting on my kitchen selling. I took a picture to make sure I am not hallucinating this thing up. Now have picture for a proof :D
I continue to get immediate ancestor contact, if sometimes in surprising forms, from this oil, along with deep sleep. Recent examples are some books from a beloved mentor, offered to me--the morning after oil application--by his widow. And after another application, a former student who lost her mother last year contacted me to talk about the loss of my mother. So interesting how the dead manage to talk to us through others, with the help of Hermanubis, of course!
I am embarking on a 60-day ancestral working, and Hermanubis and this oil will be part of it. A shaman who is working on lifting family curse for me has charged me with some deep listening and devotional work with my mother's lines. I typically apply this oil to my temples and the base of my skull in the evening. The first night, I dreamt of visiting the graves of my ancestors. I look forward to the insights this oil will help me gain! (I also slept very deeply, for the first time in many months.)
I have only used this oil a handful of times to work with my North Node, doing soul excavation, and once to communicate with the elementals.
It's not easy work, but it is necessary work, which is why I take breaks between using this oil. Long ones, weeks or months in between. That's how potent this oil is in bringing forth the shadow to assimilate with my conscious self.
The one time I have used this to connect to the spirits of the land directly, I immediately entered "a light trance state" and the lines of communication between myself and the trees, animals, every living thing in the woods behind my house, were open.
I was warded with an obsidian talisman as a precaution, for anyone who is considering doing similar work.
The most fantastic side effect of using this oil to do shadow work has been my ability to embrace some of the uglier aspects of other people's behavior as their shadows. I would ghost people who seemed problematic in the past, but now I find myself able to love them as humans who are imperfect.
It doesn't mean I don't point out their problematic behavior to them, but I don't run away from them anymore. No one is perfect, especially not me, and using this oil to confront that has made me a more whole person and enabled me to be a better friend and lover and sister.
I do weekly devotions to Hermanubis as a magical guide, and this oil is an incredible part of that: I anoint Their statue (They're appearing as the Queen of Wands to me when I divine at the moment, I'm rolling with it) ritualistically from foot to crown as I call Them into the space, and the presence and power of this is absolutely incomparable. Amazing. I'm going to need to restock soon.
Hermanubis has been an incredible guide for my ancestor work. Love this oil
