St. John the Baptist
Blessings abound this month, as June brings one of the most sacred days of the year for many religions and groups—St. John’s Eve. St. John’s Eve falls on June 23rd, the day before St. John’s Day (the 24th), which commemorates the birth of Saint John the Baptist. According to the Bible, John the Baptist, who is one of the most important figures of the Christian faith, was born six months before Jesus. His birth coincides closely with the Summer Solstice, so many of the old pagan customs celebrating Midsummer have been assimilated into practices associated with this day.
St. John’s Eve is said to be one of the most important holidays in New Orleans Voodoo. Famed Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau held cleansings at Bayou St. John in the morning and dances at Congo Square in New Orleans in the evening, in honor of the spirits called Loa. Some even believe that Marie Laveau rises from the grave on St. John's Eve in order to take place in these rituals.
St. John's Eve & St. John's Day also play an important role as it is believed that St. John's Eve is the most powerful day of the year for the performing of work, good or bad! The Conjured Saint is offering a group service to honor Saint John and petition a request from Marie Laveau.
To participate in the St. John’s Eve Service, enter your request in the "special instructions" area on your order. I will dress and bless one candle in your name, while praying for your petition on my altar in honor of Marie Laveau.
Thanks for looking and may you be blessed.

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.
