Oil of Luna in Cancer
$30.00 – $66.00
100% organic, rancidity-resistant jojoba and fractionated coconut oils, poured over watercress, chamomile, milky oat, orris root, ashwagandha, poppy seed, heal all, calamus, mugwort, angelica, and sundry herbs of Lunar provenance following fumigation at the height of the election window. Silver leaf, white gold, pearl powder, white lotus, and dried moonflower.
Likely thee *single most powerful offering* from Luna in Cancer’s entire series, for its profound ability to alter state, promote receptivity, sensitivity, and key to the Moon’s vast gnosis, deepest mysteries, and changeable arcana.
It also increases the energetic gravitational pull of yourself and whatever you anoint it with.
As the write-up states over and over again, it is highly recommended to pair this with other materia + talismans to help direct its influence, especially when worn upon on the body.
[if you are a good candidate, primarily meaning not prone to psychotic breaks or episodes; breaks in consensus reality; &c.]
Sphere + Sundry’s Oils can be used to anoint any appropriate place upon the vessel per your intent, or those befitting the Power’s associations: energy centers, meridians, or organs (in this case the stomach and breasts/ chest); or — for more intense altered states, “starfish” style: the 3rd eye/ crown of the head, both wrists/ palms, and the bottoms of both feet. Additional places include the heart center, lower back, and/ or base of the skull.
Works as an excellent primer for Salves and Body Butters from other series, to promote their bodily influence and calming capacity (personal favorites being The Cloud King’s and Fomalhaut — or Deneb Algedi for maximum warding against undesirable Lunar manifestations; for boundaries and to provide protection).
Before ritual work — to better commune with spirits, boost extrasensory perception and psychic sensitivity, seership, aid scrying, divining, channeling, and mediumship — and before sleeping or journeying to invite adventures upon the dreamscape and astral, apply Luna in Cancer by itself or combined with something along the lines of Fomalhaut, Moon-Neptune, Hermanubis, or The Ancestral Series.
[Be sure to practice good preparation and aftercare following such activities: cleansing, warding, grounding, and re-conditioning the self + space with homeostasis promoting, potentially banishing energies, especially of a Solar or Regulean nature]
This will shock you, but wearing Luna’s Oil *will* boost sensitivity to Lunar transits — globally and to the nativity — as well as whatever other materia and magical implements you handpick. It serves as an epic potentiator, helping the body, mind, and spirit to metabolize combined influences, aiding in their penetration and manifestation.
The Oil and other offerings from this series can be applied before donning talismans and amulets, to empower the physical and auric bodies to carry their light/ influence.
Over time, the Moon can heal foundational issues, rectifying attachment disorders and giving insight into abandonment issues, making us more “emotionally available” and in tune with our deepest, most basic animal needs: nourishment, sleep, security, safety; connection to those we love, to ourselves, and to the world around us — the spirit world included.
It also attunes us to the needs of those around us — to those in our care, and can promote “hermit-ing” and comfort seeking, stoking carnal and emotional hungers. It is also very likely to improve memory.
This Oil can be used magically rather than personally, to prepare candles before dressing them with powders that best fit your intended aims, to increase potency and expedite spell manifestation. Anoint petition papers, and use in any way magical oils possibly can be.
Offered in a 1/2 oz glass vial for $66, 10 ml “flawless glide” steel roller for $57, each with a keepsake pearl, or 5ml mini vial for $30

The first time I used this oil, just a drop or two, I was so spacey and literally forgot everything I was supposed to do and bring with me! This is unusual for me, but I have a twelfth house moon so seems to track. This hasn’t happened since the first couple of times but good to be aware of. This is oil feels so supportive and embodied, like my body just has what it needs. I often layer it with fomalhaut or butter ocean which feels really supported and embodied with access to spirit and imagination.
This oil is so very potent! I love to pair it with Exalted Venus for a romantic, cuddly evening or with Butter Ocean and/or Asclepius for deep, healing sleep. It's also a wonderful anointing oil for crystals and other energy healing tools. I would be careful using this oil solo - oils tend to be the most powerful form of S+S materia and unless you're prepared to feel deeply and be overwhelmed with emotion, I would always pair this with something else to smooth out the effects. That said, I hope to always have this in my toolbox.
I took a while to engage properly with Luna in Cancer, until I used it simply to dress candles or boost petitions (for anything!). It pairs well with other materia and is powerful.
I use this whenever I need to open up emotionally and energetically--before therapy appointments, before spellwork, before divination. At this point it should be my signature perfume. It's the most important part of my witchy EDC.
I am still beginning my relationship with Luna, so I know there's more to discover...but I adore this oil. It has helped bring my spirit back to life a little bit at a time. I am more in touch with my feelings and deepest needs. I use this oil most frequently with Asclepius oil to bolster my healing from chronic pain, but I also use it alone when I need to turn inward and connect with myself. I am so soothed by this oil. It's a staple for me now, even if I don't use it every day - I never want to be without it!
This series creates heightened sensitivity in me in a positive way. I'm a bit careful of the timing of when I apply, but I feel that as I've been using this more often lately, I've gotten deeper into lunar practices that are really important. I have a gemini moon that is conjunct the sun but overshadowed by it a bit and it's all opposite my ascendant in case that is helpful context! Layering with butter ocean or empyreal vantage definitely is a vibe
Let me start this review with some aspects of my chart: My Sun, Venus, & Mercury (chart ruler) are all in Cancer in the 11th House ruled by my Moon in Taurus in the 9th. So it goes without saying that I have a very stable and nourishing relationship with Cancer energy and the Moon.
I did not start slow at all and immediately rubbed this oil on me with no buffers. Minutes later, the spots where I rubbed the oil in got cold, then I had to turn the heat up in my apartment. Minutes after that, my Ancestors started speaking to me (or, perhaps more accurately, LiC allowed me to actually hear them). They told me they loved me and that they have been and always will be with me to support me. I was really struggling with a certain aspect of my life, and they spoke to me at length about it. I teared up. It was one of THE MOST HEALING experiences.
Again, my relationship with the moon is quite strong, so I knew I'd be able to handle whatever a full-force LiC experience had to offer. Now that I've done the deep end version , I mostly pair it with Regulus 3, EVII, and QST for magnifying effects. And whenever I want a direct line to my ancestors and do ancestral work, this is what I use.
Incredibly potent and beautifully eldritch. Catalyzer of spiritual growth and creativity. Helped regulate a key reconnection, initially tearful and bittersweet, and now a joyful unfoldjng.
I primarily use it by itself for dreamwork and meditation, but only when there’s a lot of time to integrate afterwards.
As Kaitlyn says on the website - “Over time, the Moon can heal foundational issues …giving insight into abandonment issues, making us more ‘emotionally available’ and in tune with our deepest, most basic animal needs: nourishment, sleep, security, safety; connection to those we love, to ourselves, and to the world around us — the spirit world included. It also attunes us to the needs of those around us — to those in our care, and can promote ‘hermit-ing’ and comfort seeking, stoking carnal and emotional hungers. It is also very likely to improve memory.”
It definitely has improved my memory, made me more emotionally available and aware of loved ones’ needs, more in tune with my animal needs, provided insight into abandonment issues and facilitated healing of those. I look forward to more lovely results.
as a sag rising w moon in scorpio I was scared bc of the warnings but this is one of mu favorite things at s+s. it smells good, it feels good, it helps me relate to the moon in these various forms, sort of sexy & mysterious and cosmopolitan, sort of mommy, sort of ghostly, I love it. it feels like drugs when I use this sometimes. best for night time or when you dont have anything to do. the more I use it the more I love it.
This series is no joke. I don't know if I would recommend the oil to start out with, as it packs a huge punch. But it definitely lives up to the hype. I've used the oil with Cloud King and Deneb Algedi mostly, although I'm finding that I need to really take my time with it (Capricorn moon). Definitely makes you want to go into hermit mode and take care of yourself physically, and it makes my dreams incredibly vivid.
