MEDUSA

MEDUSA

MEDUSA is a spell for protection and channeling feminine rage. The snake wreathed gorgon has been a symbol of the world's discomfort with a powerful woman. French revolutionaries also depicted her "not as a petrifier but as a beheader, her own head recognizably snaky yet still firmly attached to her shoulders" in this, she is also a symbol of radical political thinking. Anger has a purpose and can spur us to revolutionary thinking.

 

Smells Like

Hemp, cypress, vetiver & Egyptian coriander. The scent of greenery and dark woods that invites you to take a cathartic scream into the abyss.

'For what is most compelling in the long history of the myth and its retellings is Medusa's intrinsic doubleness: at once monster and beauty, disease and cure, threat and protection, poison and remedy' - excerpt from "The Medusa Reader" edited by Marjorie Garber & Nancy Vickers
