Raphael is a Hebrew, Christian and Islamic Archangel, and is attributed great powers of healing. His roles are very complex and his legends and attributions are myriad. Raphael is identified in the company of and in alliance with the other four well-known archangels, Michael, Gabriel, Uriel, and Suriel.
Christians regard his as the patron Saint of anybody in the healing arts or medical professions. He also is invoked by lovers and matchmakers for blessings, and is thought to watch over travelers and aid those with blindness or visual impairment.
Perhaps of most interest to practitioners of magic and ceremonial arts is the correspondences of the Archangels with the directions and elements. Raphael channels Air in the East, Michael guards Fire in the South, Gabriel brings Water in the West, and Uriel governs Earth in the North. The Archangels in turn rule over the Elemental Kings, Paralda (Air), Djinn (Fire), Nixsa (Water) and Ghobe (Earth).
My versions of these devotional oils are also designed to be harmonious to use with the corresponding Elemental Kings oils. In this system, Raphael is the Angelic higher power of Paralda, the Elemental King of Air, Michael is the rarified energy of Djinn, the King of Fire, Gabriel is the higher octave of Nixsa, the Elemental Water King, and Uriel is the exalted ruler of Ghobe, King of the Earth element.
Natural Magick Spirit Guide oils are made with reverence and research to be pleasing devotional blends for the animals or beings they are named for. I research legend and lore, and try to use oils of plants that represent the guide, what it does and what it smells like. The Natural Magick process of using planetary and elemental influences, correspondence, and high quality ingredients is especially appropriate for invoking the nature of your guide.
Spirit Guide oils are not made as fakey perfumes with marketable names. Fox really does smell wild and clever, Bear is somber and impressive, Angel is ethereal and bright, Dragon smells like smoke and scales.
Anoint yourself to attune to your totem, or pour into offering bowls or aromatherapy lamps, or anoint statues or fetish objects.These oils are in beautiful round 1/2 ounce bottles, blended in 100% coconut and/or jojoba oil, so with any care they should last a very long time. They are priced according to the ingredients most resembling the guide so named.
