.” They believed the Elf King lived under a Linden tree and that dwarves also loved it, while heroes fell into enchanted sleep beneath it. Even dragons were said to rest in its shade, so much so they themselves were called “lindenworms”. In Germany and Hungary they planted the Linden outside of their houses to keep witches from entering. It was believed that the flowers could not be brought indoors, or else they would give the girls of the house erotic dreams. How exciting!

 

This association of the Linden with love and romance goes back farther than the Middle Ages to the Greeks. One could even say the Doctrine of Signatures destined this tree to be aligned with matters of the heart by bearing heart-shaped leaves.  It may have been one of the factors rendering it sacred to Venus. In Greek mythology Homer, Horace, Virgil, and Pliny all mention the Linden tree in their works. In Ovid’s telling of the old story of Baucis and Philemon, she was changed into a linden and he into an oak when the time came for them both to die. This association of the feminine with Linden and Masculine with Oak can be seen in other cultures as well, such as in Lithuania.

 

In the Slavic world, they believed the souls of women moved into linden and fir, and women’s graves were marked by a linden cross. In the Slavic Orthodox Christian church, limewood was the preferred wood for panel icon painting. Its wood was chosen for its ability to be sanded very smooth and for its resistance to warping once seasoned. In Poland, many villages have a naming practice influenced by or derived from "Święta Lipka," which means "Holy Lime". It is also the root for the name of the German city of Leipzig, taken from the Sorbian name lips.  The southern Slovenian village of "Lipica" means "little Lime tree" and has given its name to the Lipizzan horse breed, which, if you've never seen, are beautiful white beasts.

 

In Baltic mythology, there is an important goddess of Fate called Laima. The Linden is her sacred tree. She even dwells in a Linden in the form of a cuckoo. For this reason Lithuanian women prayed and gave sacrifices under Lindens asking for luck and fertility. It is said they treated these trees with respect and talked with them as if they were fellow humans.

 

In Biblical record, Mary Magdalene’s penance from Christ was that she “should have no other food and sleep on no other bed save one made of its leaves” ...“For Magdalene had loved much, and therefore her penance was using that which is a symbol of love”. It is no small wonder that this magical folk belief became entwined with a biblical story. But that is a thought for a longer article. 

 

Medicinally, in Old Europe, the tea made from the blossoms was used for headaches. In France, “tilleul” (Linden Tea) was used often as a sedative drink. Taking a hot bath in the flowers was a remedy for insomnia and nervous irritability, which, if you have ever smelled their sweet scent, sounds quite lovely. A distilled water of linden was also used for epileptics, and even sitting beneath the tree was seen as helpful for the condition. Its flowers have also been known to make excellent, clear honey.

    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.
