Copper is generally found in nugget form or sometimes in rough crystal-like clumps or strands. It is very malleable, so it is a popular metal to use for jewelry and tool-making, though it is too soft to use for most tools though it adds malleability to harder or more brittle metals creating alloys such as bronze and brass. Also, precious metal alloys such as hepatizon and Shakudō have been used decoratively. Copper is an excellent conductor of energy such as heat and electricity and so has historically been used in both wiring and cookware. It is likewise an excellent conductor of magical/spiritual energy.

Copper has natural antibacterial and antimicrobial properties making it useful for doorknobs, faucets, and other places likely to collect bacteria to reduce the spread of disease.
When copper oxidizes, it develops a lovely green patina that protects the metal beneath from further degradation.
History and Folklore
Copper is important in the history of man as it is one of the first metals ever mined and worked by human hands over 10,000 years ago. It was also a primary component of the first metal alloys. Gold and iron may have been used even earlier than copper, but we learned to smelt copper before iron.
Copper is sacred to many of the love Goddesses. The ancient Romans called copper cyprium, as it was primarily mined in Cyprus, which also claims to be the birthplace of Aphrodite, Cypria being one of Her epithets. Later the name evolved to cuprum and this is where copper’s symbol Cu originated.
Copper was also sacred to the Sun in Babylon as well as to indigenous people of the Pacific Northwest.
Seeds of the mimosa (Acacia dealbata) were set into copper rings to protect from all forms of negativity.

Care and Cleansing
Copper will eventually turn green if left to its own devices, but if you would like to return it to its a shiny copper color, it can be gently polished with baking soda. You can cleanse it between uses using whatever method you like, but don’t leave it soaking.

The Conjured Saint Ritually-Blessed Oils are crafted to enhance and promote ritual-working, spell-working and personal intent. These spiritual recipes can be used to anoint the body or tools, burned in an oil burner, or added to ritual baths.
Our sacred oils are hand-blended and bottled into “metaphysical battery-packs” of concentrated magick. Each oil contains its own spiritual life force (the soul), that is harnessed by harvesting Mother Nature’s blessings. Plants are alive, and everything that lives has a soul like essences. Roots, seeds, leaves, and petals all contain a specific metaphysical signature that is captured and magickally-infused into the oil that corresponds to each botanical’s intent and purpose.
The botanicals used are specifically selected by The Conjured Saint from our sacred, blessed garden and then hand-blended with blessed crystals to create powerful, divine oils. Crystals, like botanicals, are living beings, charged with a universal life-force. Harnessing this energizing life force into the oils allows them to continually recharge themselves.
The Conjured Saint oils are designed to endure through the use of Vitamin E and premium-selected grapeseed oil, which preserve their sacred shelf life. Blessed under the moon during the appropriate moon cycle, holy days of religious days of obligation, and according to the correct energy of the days of the week, each oil is its own life-force in a vial, ready to be used to enhance spell-work. The Conjured Saint oils are adaptable to any spiritual practice.
Botanically-infused on the appropriate days to enhance their properties, the oils are then blessed on a sacred altar under the watchful eyes of the saints and steeped with the powerful crystals that harvest the energy and vitality of Earth’s divine magick. The inclusion of crystals in The Conjured Saint’s recipes provides an energy-generating quality that is unique to The Conjured Saint spells and magickal products.
The ritual blending and blessing of the oils is a traditional ceremony carried out amidst powerful magickal, holy, and religious relics, an altar of cascading crystal waterfalls, the elements of fire, water, earth, and air, and otherworldly intervention that completes the process. The Conjured Saint leaves no stone unturned when formulating our oils, so that you may reap the benefits of divine Earth magick.
