Santa Muerte oil – A personification of death, Santa Muerte is associated with healing, protection, and safe delivery to the afterlife by her devotees.

Santa Muerte is known for being accepting and an enforcer of justice. But she does not always deliver in the way you might expect and can be vengeful and destructive if she sees fit. Part of following The Bony Lady is the acceptance of death and the fact that we all must die one day. This acceptance brings power and perspective, allowing us to live each day as if it were our last.

Our line of oils call upon the power of nature and the ancient principles of magick by using herbs, oils, roots, and flowers that are associated with specific tasks, spells, or the honoring of Deities and Spirits. Each formula is crafted with these energies in mind. Mainly real, plant-based essential oils with a dash of fine fragrance.

Santa Muerte oil – A personification of death, Santa Muerte is associated with healing, protection, and safe delivery to the afterlife by her devotees.

Santa Muerte is a female divinity, folk saint, and subject of cult worship in both Mexico Neopaganism and folk Catholicism. Her devotees regard her as a personification of death who has the power to heal, guard, and ensure that people travel to the afterlife safely. With the turn of the twenty-first century, her fan base has significantly increased despite being denounced by the Catholic Church. There are now between 10 and 20 million Santa Muerte devotees throughout Mexico, parts of Central America, the United States, and Canada, an increase from ten to twenty years ago.

santa muerte statueA skeleton of a lady wearing a long robe and holding one or more objects—typically a scythe and a globe—is used to depict Santa Muerte. Her robes can be any color, despite more accurate representations of the figure varying considerably from devotee to devotee and depending on the ceremony being performed or the request being made. She is also referred to as the Godmother, the White Lady, the White Sister, and the Lady of Shadows.

Also associated with Santa Muerte are scales, an hourglass, an owl, and an oil lamp. The balance of the scales represents God’s will as well as fairness, justice, and impartiality. Because the hourglass can be turned upside down to begin again, people think that life does not end with death. Santa Muerte’s link with time and the worlds above and below is symbolized by the hourglass. Also, it shows patience. An owl is a symbol of knowledge and the capacity to navigate through the night. The owl is supposedly a messenger as well. A light is a representation of spirit and intelligence. It illuminates the path by casting a light into the ignorance and doubt that surround it.
