    Our Oat & Honey Blessing Soap is a magical & devotional soap, perfect for working with the spirits of Honey & Oats. Use this soap to connect to the Primordial Gods and the Fair Folk and ask for their blessings.

    Oats and Honey are two types of offering that we see given to pre-iron age deities throughout Europe. We see these legends come down to use as the ambrosia of the Gods, and as cups of honey left out for the Good folk. We see it in oat cakes and scattered oats on the farmers fields. These two plant spirits come to us from the wilds of the past, interacting with things ancient and untamed. Oats are also useful in Abundance magic, a plentiful supply of oats means that the previous harvest was good. So by using the oats, the oat spirits should be able to do the same working on other spirits, making them more prosperous.

    Talking of the Fair Folk, The Witch Lord- the folkloric devil, also has a connection to oats. There are legends of the devil mowing oats by setting them ablaze, and then laying them untouched in large circles.
    How To Use
    Simply use this soap everyday to ask for their blessings with a small prayer. It’s easy to start the day off right by bringing in the blessings you desire- make every morning a spiritual ritual! You can also slice a layer of this soap off to use as a discreet sigil making stick. This can be included as part of a ritual before a bath. Following this, you can also use this soap to ritually purify yourself before working with the older Gods.

    The soaps are a great way to support your current magical workings without having to put much effort in. All the time we interact with plant and mineral spirits without even thinking about it. This way, you can bring in the plant spirits that want to help you with your life.

    Some of the magic of the living traditions is that every layer to life is sacred.

    More information about the magic behind Propolis
    Propolis is produced by honey bees, and so has an innate connection to the honey bee. Honey bees feature in many legends. The legends of Artemis and Diana point to Ephesus, where the bee was one of their key symbols, and their priestesses were called ‘bees’- Melissai. Melissai were also present in the cults of Demeter and Persephone. Propolis and bees were intertwined with Demeters and Persephone in the Eleusinian mysteries. One priestess was initiated into the mysteries by Demeter herself. (And then was promptly murdered by other jealous priestesses.) Her soul left her body as a cloud of bees. Persephone was known as ‘Melitodes’, or ‘the honey one’.

    Bees and honey have a distinct connection to the dead in the ancient Greek and Roman world. Honey was often left as an offering, and many bees would make the tombs their homes. These are the reasons why it has such an innate connection to regeneration, transformation and soul flight. These were the secrets of the Eleusinian mysteries

    Apollo was taught the gift of prophecy by three bee maidens, and one of his sons became the demi-god of beekeeping. The Bee priestess was one of his oracles at Delphi. This is the link to prophecy- especially with the connection to the soul flight of the bee.

    British Myth
    Healing and good fortune comes from British myths. Bee keeping was especially a treasured profession here in Britain. Bees would be seen as a part of the family. If you offend them, they will no longer produce honey for you. If someone passes away, you go and tell the bees. Having a beehive close to home increases the prosperity of the house. You can still find bee charms in the Museum of Witchcraft that bring health, happiness and good fortune. In Scotland, the Bee was a popular form of the familiar spirit, and would also be a transformational choice for the witch within soul flight.

    There are certainly plenty of records of the Cunningfolk using honey and propolis in their spiritual healing remedies. They would combine the propolis and honey with herbs and use it as a salve.

    Bees and honey are closely intertwined with the fair folk of Britain and Italy. This is because they fly between the worlds much like how the fair folk move between them.
