Big Dark Energy

This is a potent oil for times when other forms of protection aren't cutting it. I highly recommend working first with Deneb Algedi and/ or Antares (Badger or Emperor subsets). If those don't provide the protection you require, then take some time to divine if Algol will be a good fit for you.
It is important to develop a relationship with Algol first, through offerings but most of all, with sincere, humble prayer. Ideally, she will extend an invitation to you. I already had a relationship with Hekate, and she called to work with me further through Algol. It was confusing at first as I thought it was Medusa, but a consultation with a practitioner who specializes in working with Algol/ Medusa clarified things for me. Don't be afraid to seek clarity from humans who are knowledgable in this star's arcana.
I often take a "fuck around and find out" approach to magic and working with materia, but Algol is very different. She's not an experiment. At the same time, if she makes it clear through divination, omens, dreams, etc that she wants to work with you, there isn't a need to be afraid. Just stay humble and build a relationship with a dark goddess who can guide the power of this awesome star into your life in a good way.
This oil feels very heavy when I use it (I have anointed myself with it, too). It brings up a lot of grief, which I know needs processing. It's not comfortable but it's good. I mostly anoint candles with it and burn as an offering along with my prayer request to Hekate.

In Awe!

This was my first purchase, despite following you for years. Everything written was spot on! The first several days of being in my home, my cable TV just DID NOT WORK.... Nothing I did helped. I finally accepted that it was beyond my control! I have an incredible reverence for her, especially after seeing her presence (my candle flames were doing things I've never seen before) and her work. Thank you for sharing your gift......

Protection in a bottle

I ordered this after eclipses in my 12th house revealed to me that people I had trusted saw me as their enemy and were spreading lies about me, which brought up a lot of pain for me. Their revealing themselves also made me aware of the dangers they presented to me and my daughter, so I called on Mother Algol and Kaali to protect us using this oil. The asteroid Kaali is conjunct my natal moon if that means anything to you, which is why I choose her to help channel Algols power safely. Just holding the bottle of this oil frankly brings a sigh of relief to both of us and I am grateful.


TBH I haven't "used" this oil yet, nor do I really intend to. I've always had a strong connection and pull toward Dark Goddess energies (and my chart ruler Mercury is exactly conjunct Algol natally). This Algol series was what first drew me to S+, and I stalked this oil for years before purchasing. If feels like we're connected, but I'm not sure how to engage with that yet. And that's ok. There is no rush. I have opened the oil and smelled it-- that alone was a powerful experience. Just inhaling I felt my whole body relax. The energy is heavy and dark, but a rich kind of darkness. I would absolutely not trifle with this energy, and it does have an edge to it, but it feels protective as well. I think this is a series where, if it's for you, you will be called to it in no uncertain terms.

Intense Protective Energy

This materia should not be used casually. It often causes electrical issues before it settles into your home. For me, my laptop short circuited. It is incredibly powerful.
When I finally used it, I decided to ask MA if she would work with DA to effect the changes I was looking for. This combo seemed to work well for me. The parties were held accountable for their actions without getting killed.
I have also found MA is very effective at protecting you and creating a safe space for you to work it. I like to use it to create a perimeter around my property. I highly recommend it.

MA Oil

As stated in my Blood of the Gorgon review - be very cautious with this materia as the Mother does not F*** around. I recommend building a relationship with her before using this powerful materia. She demands a lot of respect and attention, both of which I am thrilled to give her and this materia honours her in the best way. I have not used this in protection spells (yet?) because I have not had the need (thankfully) but knowing that she is in my sphere/realm has made all the difference. Hail the Gorgon Queen!

Incredibly powerful

Highly recommend forming a relationship with Algol prior to acquiring this materia - but this oil of Mother Algol is incredibly powerful once you do have that relationship. She is comforting and protective, but can induce incredibly far-reaching events (when I first got this materia, the electricity was cut out for 5 blocks around my building).

I absolutely adore this oil, it was the first materia I purchased from sphere and sundry and it has been excellent. I find this oil very aligned with darker energies and deities- who i work with often, it feels quite comforting to me almost like coming home and is very effective especially when paired with a meditative and honoring practice for Mother Algol as well. This is amazing!

Wonderful stuff

I’ll admit I was quite nervous to begin working with this oil! I moved slowly and I gave offerings. I made a home for Algol in my space and I’ve felt such relief working with this oil. I’ll admit, I can be intense and reactive—this is pet of why I proceeded so cautiously with this offering. I felt relief making contact with this oil and I will be putting in an order for more at some point. Come with respect and self knowledge. That’s my advice for working with Algol. This materia is gorgeous but i also began to connect with her before ever buying materia. If you’re unsure, just proceed slowly and divine on it for a while. It’s special and I’m so glad I purchased this

Deeply Powerful + Protective

Okay so I know this series comes with a lot of warnings and I think those are all super warranted. However....I honestly *love* this oil and have had nothing but really good experiences with it. I have Algol tightly conjunct my moon and I think that has helped make this oil feel like home to me. Also the scent? I did not expect AT ALL to love the scent but I truly do. I got this mostly to support protection work but also to satisfy my own deep curiosity; Mother Algol has showed me that she really is a part of me and my experiences and has given a voice to some things I've always had, like an intense love of staring contests. Shortly after my oil arrived I noticed that two Yellowjacket nests had taken root on either side of the pathway to my front door....instead of being afraid of feeling like I needed to get rid of them they felt very protective. Then I started having Yellowjackets from those nests come to me while I was on my porch and land on my hands and my hair which is **bizarre** behavior for them because each time they were super non-aggressive and didn't sting me. I haven't had any electrical stuff with Mother Algol yet but I'm curious to see if that will happen. Also she seems to love Mugwort and I have been offering mugwort that I've grown myself. I also keep her on my main altar space which just feels right. I highly recommend this product...just make sure to approach with a lot of respect.


  1. Mother Algol is a mother, a friend, and a protector. Every now and then she makes me feel her presence, and it is comforting to know she is by my side watching over me.

  2. A truly protective and potent oil. I use this oil sparingly and keep it within a black pouch, taking it out only at night. I mostly use it to anoint jewelry and protective amulets and talismans so that its protective energies can keep me safe whenever I wear or use them.
    The energy this oil carries is also one that is very commanding and serious, and one I feel where you really want to use it only for what you truly need to and should.

  3. The protection offered by this oil is nothing short of genuinely significant. The vial itself pulses in the hand when it’s held, and the potency even in small doses is remarkable, breaking curses, ensuring the compliance of spirits, and blending perfectly with all manner of workings under the providence of Mother Algol.

  4. No greater defense. No greater protector. Honor and wrath, glory and fortitude all in one.

  5. First of all, this is not something to play with lightly. The energies contained in this series are potent, and if you approach them in a way that’s disrespectful, or without a really good reason, then this series isn’t for you. My magical practice already involved a goddess who closely resembles Kali, which I believe to be an aid to my use of this materia.

    There’s an adjustment period. I had a noticeable headache after I first ordered the Algol oil. That subsided and we’ve had a brief but good relationship together. I’ve only used this oil twice, once to anoint an Evil Eye glass, and the other in a ritual for justice. Both were successful, but I encourage you to cleanse your space very well after! The following morning after the ritual, a family member of mine was stung by a wasp, which hasn’t occurred in years on our property. This was after I cleared my space with a good dose of a Regulus hydrosol.

    Definitely recommend the oil, but just be careful!

  6. Mother Algol has been a blessing to me. Yes, things happened while she was on her way to me (vision issues, headaches, fierce electrical storms etc.) Once here, I accommodated her onto her altar with the Morrigan, Lilith and Medusa. I greet them and give them honey and flower offerings from my garden. She has given me a feeling of safety in my home, I have used her in candles for protection and such. She is a wonderful protector. Highly recommend.

  7. This is the most delicious offering I have enjoyed from Kaitlin. More than simply being an exquisite conduit of the celestial gorgon, it is the woman behind the oil who will win your heart over with her commitment to excellence in handcrafting magical materia and providing stellar customer care.

  8. From the moment I have purchased the item, I have felt a warm and safe presence come into my life.
    So far I have consecrated a medusa necklace which I put on whenever I feel like I am around people who wish to hurt me (in some way or another).

    Make sure you make an explicit request to not kill or maim wrong doers.

    This is not a toy.
