Shiva is a very complex Hindu deity with many interpretations depending on the tradition of Hinduism. In Shaivaism he is a supreme deity, in others, he is one of a triad of gods with Brahma, the creator, Vishnu who maintains, and Shiva is the destroyer. Shiva is depicted as an ascetic yogi, but on the other hand he appears as a generous and benevolent god of wealth and the household.
" Sophia is a Gnostic goddess of truth and wisdom. Her legends are complex. Older legends present her as a primordial mother goddess, sometimes even as the consort of Jehovah, otherwise understood as the Female Wisdom of nature. Gnostic myths include her presence during Mary’s immaculate conception of Jesus. This might have been an attempt to get the new Church to approve or accept a female aspect of divinity. There is a church built for her in Constantinople in the 6th century C.E. now called the Hagia Sophia Museum.

Sophia is in one view simply the personification of the quality of wisdom, and therefore just a concept of Hellenistic philosophy. This rarified vision would not seem to result in so many statues and works of architecture, I would argue. In Gnosticism she is elevated to the status of one of the Holy Trinity, e.g., the Holy Spirit, or called the Bride of Christ. From there the Gnostic constructs and myths become quite complex regarding Sophia. I invite you to contemplate them on your own with the aid of this perfume oil dedicated to the goddess of Wisdom. The ingredients in it smell ancient, timeless, and of course very intellectual. Sophia oil is made on Wednesdays just before the Full Moon.

Natural Magick deity oils are made with reverence and research to be pleasing devotional blends for the gods and goddesses they are named for. I research legend and lore, and try to use oils of plants that grew in the lands where the deity originated or rules. The Natural Magick process of using planetary and elemental influences, correspondence, and high quality ingredients is especially appropriate for honoring the gods and bringing their qualities into our lives.

Anoint yourself to attune to these deities, or pour into offering bowls or aromatherapy lamps, or anoint statues or fetish objects. I love to give them to priests or priestesses who run open circles or invoke our patron gods and goddesses.

These oils are in beautiful round 1/2 ounce bottles, blended in 100% jojoba oil, so with any care they should last a very long time. They are priced according to the ingredients requested by the gods.
