Porta Alchémica® Anointing Oils
Magical oils are one of the foundations of alchemy. Alchemists have applied the secrets of ‘scent magic’ and utilised the powers of fragrance for thousands of years. By working magically and ritually with alchemically prepared blends of essential oils they opened the alchemical door to the powers of celestial bodies. This enabled them to attune to the powers of the heavens and to concentrate their alchemical focus of attention to the degree necessary to carry out the alchemical Magnus Opus – the Great Work.
The Porta Alchémica® anointing oils work to create a powerful magical focus for your intention or desired outcome. Use them to open the alchemical doorway to celestial power, to open up magical pathways and to define your specific intent and desired focus.

Porta Alchémica® Incenses
The burning of incense was central to the ceremonies and rituals of Ancient Egypt to create the required sacred and magical atmosphere for calling down the powers of the heavens. Special significance was placed on the compound incense Kyphi (Kapet) which had special medicinal and magical properties and was made using recipes based on lunar and solar cycles. In addition, certain gods and goddesses were associated with specific types of incense and great importance was placed on both the ingredients and the method in which it was prepared.
This very ancient magical tradition is both honoured and continued with the offering of the First Light Porta Alchémica® Holy Smoke range of planetary and elemental ritual incenses. Each ritual incense comes in powdered form in a 30ml glass jar.

Eighth Ray Magic rituals
Use Eighth Ray® rituals to empower the manifestation process and bring about the transformation you desire. A ritual state of mind and the power of your own intent and focus brings you into alignment with the cosmic power of heka. Heka is the Egyptian word for 'magic' and was understood by the ancient Egyptians as the energy which makes all creation possible.

Eighth Ray rituals form an integral part of what is taught in the Medicine Woman Centre for Shamanic and Esoteric Studies® online training programs, the Medicine Woman Rite of the Twelve Celestial Regents© and Medicine Woman Ritual of the Twelve Gates©.
