VÖLVA Witch's Sight Artisan Alchemist Heathen Shamanic Oil

$42.95

Heiðr (from the Old Norse adjective meaning "bright" or the noun meaning "honour") is the seeress and witch (völva) mentioned in the Völuspá, related to the story of the Æsir-Vanir war:


The war I remember, the first in the world,
When the gods with spears had smitten Gollveig,
And in the hall of Hor had burned her,
Three times burned, and three times born,
Oft and again, yet ever she lives.
Heith (Heidr) they named her who sought their home
The wide-seeing witch, in magic wise;
Minds she bewitched that were moved by her magic,
To evil women a joy she was.

—Völuspá (21-22), Bellows’ translation

She that remembers, the first on earth,
when Gullveig they with lances pierced,
and in the high one's hall her burnt,
thrice burnt, thrice brought forth,
oft not seldom; yet she still lives.
Heidi (Heidr) they called her, whitherso'er she came,
the well-foreseeing Vala (Völva):
wolves she tamed, magic arts she knew, magic arts practiced;
ever she was the joy of evil people.

—Völuspá (21-22), Thorpe's translation

The general assumption is that Heiðr (anglicized Heidr) is an alternate name for the witch Gullveig (where the first element of Gullveig's name, Gull-, means "gold), who, in turn, is often thought to be a hypostasis of Freyja. In Norse mythology, Gullveig is a being who was speared by the Æsir, burnt three times, and yet thrice reborn. Upon her third rebirth, Gullveig's name becomes Heiðr and she is described as a knowledgeable and skillful völva.

Heiðr is also a seeress in several works such as Landnámabók (S 179 / H 45), Hrólfs saga kraka (3) and Örvar-Odds saga.

In honor of this awesome ancestral Witch Seeress (from whom I inherited the gift of remembrance of my preincarnate journey into incarnate physical existence on earth - thus myself being also "she that remembers, the first on earth") and in blót to my old European genetic U5 motherline and I2 fatherline (both being direct lineages of Cro-Magnon early modern humans, the first homo sapiens sapiens to inhabit Old Europe) is this powerful VÖLVA Witch's Sight "Artisan Alchemist"™ Heathen Shamanic Oil dedicated. Handcrafted with premium organic ingredients, VÖLVA is triplet gemstone charged with Amber, Quartz Crysal and Viking Sunstone nuggets. Honored with 9 sacred herbs of Germanic Witchcrafts and other select herbs and oils, Lori's VÖLVA oil is generously scented with an original deeply evocative Voluspa oil blend (including honey amber, vetiver and more) exclusive to WITCHCRAFTS ARTISAN ALCHEMY®.
