The careful layering of snakeskin, sand and human bone powder with the other ingredients, brought to life with blood, creates a maelstrom of venomous dead carried in the oil and transferred with its administration. The addition of dirt from Tel Megiddo (the Tel in Israel known for its history of violent battles, believed by many to be the place that the Apocalypse will begin (Mount Megiddo - Har Megiddo - Armageddon) brings an extremely violent and vengeful nature to the oil that makes it a force to be reckoned with.
Selected list of ingredients includes:
Snake skin sheds • Human bone powder • Dirt from Har Megiddo • Porcupine quills • Arabic desert sand • Mistletoe • Thorn Apple spines • Blackthorn • Black Copal • Blood • Iron
...among other ingredients
The oil is a dark black, being colored naturally by the addition of bone black.
The effects of the oil when utilized (or misused by its owner) start subtle, with vague dizziness and nausea, leading to stronger impairments of the mind and body, accompanying nighttime visions of violent dead and nightmares of despair, paranoia and agony. The oil is designed to easily resist cleansings seeking to remove its effects, as the dead funneling through it are engineered to flip over constantly, creating new issues in new places in new ways. This of course both raises its effectiveness - and its danger.
It has been suggested that the dead within can be utilized in a form of teaching capacity, though this isn't necessarily recommended. A serpent may give wisdom, but it is never fully tame and always has poison in its fangs.
Oil comes packed in salt, where it should remain unless being used as this lessens the reach and power of the oil beyond its bottle.
All vegetal, mineral and animal ingredients are legally obtained. Instructions and information will be provided on a cloth scroll.
Price is for one half ounce bottle of Oil of the Shifting Dead. If you are interested in greater amounts, please contact us.
