Rue // anointing oil


Rue oil is a staple botanica oil, however, these days they are crafted with synthetic chemicals that turn the oil fluorescent green. Our Rue oil is made from the true plant, and as such it is incredibly powerful and only to be used in small amounts. Excessive amounts can be poisonous. 

How to use:

Rue has been used for centuries to harness its potent protective abilities. It's said to ward off the "evil eye", reverse unwanted energy (spells), and increase one's own magical abilities. It also has a history of use within physical medicine for issues such as joint pain, soft tissue injury and nervous conditions. I advise against using Rue internally or even much more than a drop or two externally. I find Rue most useful as an anointing oil for the crown of the head, candles, oil lamps, doorways and other ritual objects. I also clean my altar with it occasionally. 

Safety Data:  Not for internal use.   Rue Essential Oil is considered toxic, an abortifacient, an irritant to the mucous membranes, a neurotoxin, and causes sun sensitivity due to photo-toxicity.

Hydrosols are versatile and safe medicine. Spray a few spritz on your face and body for toning and refreshing. Try it in your hair or on a pillow. It makes a great spray for your environment, rather it be a workplace or home space. Hydrosols can cleanse and change the energy in the area without the smoke of incense. Many of the products are safe to consume; try spritzing a cup of water or a fun cocktail. Anyway you use them hydrosols will bestow the spirit of the plant into the surroundings, helping you connect with it's essence and energy. 

Each bottle comes with suggested use.

The shelf life will be on your bottle - "1-2 years from [date bottled]" the gap in time here is pretty big, but that's because it depends on how it's taken care of. 

Care Tips: keep in a cool place, away from direct sunlight. Do not leave in your car or the freezer, however the fridge will greatly increase the shelf life while providing an extra refreshing spray! Avoid opening the cap often to keep oxygen and contaminates out. Keep somewhere you'll remember to use it!

We suggest using the medicine in 6 months-1yr. Why? We don't use chemical preservatives and plant medicine can degrade over time. Skin care should be treated like food, used fresh and whole. So use it up, #treatyoself!

The Rue oil is a staple

Cannot say enough good things about this oil. I work in an environment with many, many different types of less than ideal energies, and the rue oil keeps me protected.

Rue and Angelica anointing oil

Ritual Botanica’s Rue and Angelica anointing oil herb combination is divine. Angelica is one of my favorite scents. I appreciate Ash putting the power of these two in one bottle.

Demetra Ray
Magical and Powerful!

Excellent oil for protecting oneself, and property/spaces. This Rue oil can be used to anoint sacred objects, crystals and tools to keep them clear from low frequency energies. Will buy again.

So powerful!

Love this oil! I put one or two drops on my head before going out to work and I can feel the protective layer around me throughout my day.
