Our ancestors created oils like the Moldavite Solstice Oil with different materials made from plants, herbs, crystals, things of the sea, and even parts from animals, all in a base of coconut oil or animal fats. The shaman would make this medicine with intention and create it in a simple to elaborate ceremony of song, dance, and incantations. The gathering of ingredients was inspired by an elder who told me to use very powerful stones and crystals in conjunction with healing plants and intentions. This was to be made in a container of ceremony that begins on Summer Solstice and ends on the following full moon in Pisces. Each year, the intentions may change, but the core purpose remains the same—transformation and manifestation.
