Hecate, Circe, Medea oil set
The Enchantress. The Sorceress Supreme!
Poisoner. Healer. Goddess of magic, transmutation, illusion, necromancy, plant medicines. Her name, Circe, or Kirke, loosely translates “to secure with rings” or “loop around” which calls to reference her powers in binding magic. The first witch in Greek mythology. She is commonly slandered in historical texts as a predator and dangerous woman- a violent beast. But, as we all know- history fails iconic women. In traditional history, it is told that one night, Circe made a potion that turned Odysseus’ men into pigs and animals. What was not mentioned is that she cared for these long haul sailors for over a year and tolerated their swine-like behavior. Endured abuse and being taken average of by ungrateful men. She used botanical potions to bring out their true nature- which was pigs.
Circe is a loud, free woman who urges her enemies to fuck around and find out. She does not tolerate mistreatment and was a pioneer (in the Greek mythos) in utilizing botanicals around her to create magic, medicines, and safety.
Daughter of Aeetes- granddaughter of Helios, niece to Circe. Sorceress and priestess of Hecate.
The ultimate story of defiance and sacrifice. Her radical devotion to liberation and equity. She endured and persisted and sacrificed much for the interest and love of a man- until she didn’t. She commanded respect and recognition- when it isn’t expressed- what she has given, she will take it away. Medea reminds us our grief and our anger are sacred primordial energies.
She was a devoted spiritual daughter to the goddess Hecate, and she was very much protected and heavily guardian by Her. Hecate is a fierce mother to those who are devoted to her and the Great Work.
Circe was Medea’s aunt but is also regarded as a sister- but this is more of a spiritual sister in regards to their connections with the goddess Hecate. They carry the knowledge and power of the plant elders and magic thru Hecate.
Circe, Medea, and Hecate all illuminate the powerful duality of medicine & poison. Magic & chaos. Life & death. And the radical embrace of our primal ability and inner power. The gifts of plant spirit magic & medicine are invoked thru these powerful women. I’m glad to know them. And I’m glad to have had the moments of connections in making these oils to honor them, all together.
