Santisima Muerte, the Holy Death, has grown tremendously in populatrity in the past decade. The Mexican inheritance of Spanish Roman Catholicism and indigenous belief and respect for death, the Bony Lady is approachable by everyone, for she has seen all, just as she levels all.
Patron of the home and family, Giver of the Good Death and Angel of God, la Santisima Muerte is first and foremost a Saint- a Holy Being- an emissary of God that will usher us to the next world. She is Godmother to all, a source of inspiration and an embodiment of Momento Mori.
Traditionally worked with in her three principal Robes of white, red, and black, each color is petitioned for different reasons. A word for the seeker- as we work Her, she in turn works upon us, for we wear the Robe we work.
La Blanca, the White Robe, is petitioned for health, peace, and stability. She is the eldest of the three Robes, the guardian of destiny, and is considered the closest to God.
La Roja, the Red Robe, is petitioned for love, passion, and wealth. She is the guardian of the heart and the joys of life.
La Negra, the Black Robe, is petitioned for protection and can be used for aggressive magic. She is the guardian of the life force tied to the breath, and is called the Mother of Witches.
Made on Dia de los Muertos by a Santa Muertero and lifetime devotee, with ingredients added for the next nine days to color each Robe while a Novena is said to Santa Muerte, all three oils were built upon a base oil which is comprised, in part, of:
A Catholic Chaplet of the Dead, blessed and prayed •
A blessed Rosary upon which a Chaplet for la Santisima Muerte was said •
Copal • Aloe • Maguey • Tequila • Coffee• Blessed Palm • Blessed Ash •
White Rose Petals • Marigolds • Rue • Rosemary • Yauhtli • White Carnation •
Jade • Quartz • Coins • Dirt from the Church of the Holy Sepulchre
among several other ingredients...
Each oil has dozens more ingredients to further enliven their respective Robes.
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 Santisima Muerte Oil in one of her three aspects, or all three offered as a set of three half ounce bottles for a combined price. If you are interested in greater amounts, please contact us.
