June 2019 Bastet Perfume Society: Corn Maiden

the corn maiden story


 This Summer Solstice Bastet Perfume is created in honor of the Corn Maiden. She has many names, has been honored in most native traditions throughout the Americas with countless stories and legends shared in her honor. Corn (maize) is a sacred, vital plant that represents sustenance, and carries the quality of plenty. Our intention when working with this perfume is gratitude, generosity, and abundance. Our prayers are that we may thrive, grow and prosper. Cornmeal has played an important role in ceremony and is most commonly used as an offering - to give thanks to corn spirit and mother earth for the blessings that have been bestowed upon us. Today I am thankful for YOU!

Joy inducing Orange Blossom represents the maiden; and is the centerpiece for this evocative midsummer blend, while woodsy-balsamic Amyris and supportive Siam Wood provide a fertile base. A touch of spice ignites its power.
