Áine – “The Light Returns” – Ritual Sun-Fire Oil for meditation, anointing, and making light.

St. John’s wort, Hypericum perforatum, holds the energy of midsummer, she has the power to relieve pain on all levels of being, restoring the sunshine to your existence.

Áine is the radiant goddess of summer, love, wealth, and sovereignty, and is also known as the Queen of the Fairies and Áine Chlair (Áine of the Light). Midsummer rituals in her honour were performed, and ashes from ceremonial fires spread onto the fields, ensuring fertility and an abundance of crops.

St. John's Wort is one of the most important magical and medicinal herbs in the history of herbal medicine. Her time of full, bright flowering coincides with the peak of the midsummer sun, which is why she has long held a sacred place as a herb of the summer solstice. Her joyous yellow flowers mimic little suns, and her deep red-orange oil is representative of blood, the water of life. Sprigs of St.John’s wort were sometimes burned on ceremonial bonfires at solstice-time, or hung at thresholds for protection.

St. John's Wort is a gentle and cleansing tonic for the whole body, strengthens and regulates the metabolism and gently stimulates the digestive system and helps to clear out metabolic waste. This herb has a sedative, calming effect on the nervous system. Historically this herb has been used to great effect to treat migraines and headaches, and a little of this infused oil rolled on to the temples will bring relief to sufferers. Hypericum is also well known for bringing healing to those experiencing anxiety, melancholy, irritability, and a generally nervous disposition.

Herbs are well absorbed intradermally (through the skin), so the medicinal and magical properties of this herb can be accessed through the application an infused oil such as this.

Used in meditation, ritual or as an anointing oil, the wonderful fragrance of the essential oils combined with the transformative and potent magic of St. John’s Wort open us up to deeper levels of awareness and connection.

Wild foraged magical uplifting St. John’s Wort is double infused into cold-pressed organic oils and combined with specially selected fire element essential oils to stoke the fires in your heart and belly.

To use;

Roll over pulse points and third eye to invoke the spirit of fire, summer, sovereignty, and sunshine.

This is not a fragrance oil (although it smells wonderful) but a ritual oil infused with the magical transformative bright sunshine of St. John’s Wort.

All of the items within my shop are made within sacred space in deep reverence and connection. I give thanks to the herbs and communicate with them about what I am making and my intentions. I have built up a strong reciprocal relationship with my local flora over the years and find them supportive of my endeavours to share the mystery and magic of plant medicine with other seekers on the path.
