Our Hecate Oil was created to honor the Greek Goddess, Hecate, Goddess of Magic. She is petitioned for insight, guidance, magical power, and wisdom. This Oil was created to help establish a connection with her, particularly during important ceremonies. Call upon her when performing rituals or spells that delve into the magical realm and where one wishes to increase their magical power. Hecate is the ideal Goddess to call upon when one seeks protection or when one simply wants to tap into her powers. It comes in a ½ oz. glass bottle.

What are the ingredients in Hecate Oil:
Made with mullein, cypress, rue, bay, frankincense, myrrh, nutmeg, and a few other potent herbs and oils.
How to use Hecate Oil:
Hecate should typically be called upon during the new moon. Offerings to her should include wine, honey, and fish. Because she is associated with light and magic, I often suggest working with white candles should you wish to pursue candle divination. You may wish to set up an altar or you may even simply print out your favorite image of her. Chants and prayers to her may be as personal as you want. Because you are calling in her support, you want to anoint the white candle with Hecate Oil and draw the oil up the candle to the wick. You may wish to write out a petition, however, with Hecate, I often encourage people to speak with her directly. When the ritual is complete, it is important to leave the leftovers at a crossroads as this is her domain.
Of Course, Hecate Oil can be dabbed on the body, dropped into the bath or anointed on talismans and amulets. It is a great anointing oil in general and can be dabbed onto ritual tools, altars and divination tools. Dab a bit onto your journals or simply anoint some on your wrists or third eye. Rub some on your front door during a new moon for protection or simply leave the bottle out during a full moon to increase its power.
Who is Hecate?
Hecate is the Greek Goddess of Magic. Although it is difficult to determine her origins, many historians believe she had a strong following in Thrace and in a number of other ancient Greek cities such as Athens and Thessaly. Often depicted with a dog, Hecate was associated with the crossroads, the moon, magic, sorcery, the dead, herbal knowledge, poisons, and the mystery of the unknown. Images of her varied throughout time. She can often be seen holding a torch and key, but has also appeared as three-headed or tryptic (three-bodied). Those who worshiped Hecate believed she was a protector of the home and served as a goddess that had dominion over the underworld. Thus, she was often worshiped in home shrines as a means of protection from unwanted spirits and ghosts.

I have ordered a couple times, and am loving the condition oils Art of the Root carry’s! I’m hooked on them! Definitely recommend their products. I have a few other items, such as the hot foot powder, which I haven’t yet put to use, but I have no doubt those items will be just as effective as the ones we have already used.
The fragrances are subtle and each so unique. Top quality oils and herbs/flowers for the best infusions you can find.
I love this oil and use it in my daily dedications.
