Samhain Essence Face and body Ritual Oil
Inhale the essence of the Triple Goddess and wear her scent as we travel towards the winter months.
In honour of Persephone, Demeter and Hecate, maiden mother and crone. At this time of year Persephone returns to the underworld and Nature begins to descend into darkness and sleep.
Use this as a deeply nurturing facial oil at night, to ease you into your dreamtime travels to the otherworlds, underworlds and beyond.
Samhain Essence is a ritual oil that can be used on the pulse points - the temples, lower jaw, neck, wrists, inside elbow and knee and ankles. It is safe to be massaged into the face and neck.
This can also be used as an essence to be worn through the day or used in the bath for a contemplative soak!

Sandalwood and frankincense represent contacting other planes, but staying grounded during our reflection, and also attune to the season of Mabon, and the Autumn.
Cypress, Petitgrain and Rose also uplift the heart and help us to let go.
